AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Brockett was a great gusty figure, promoter, entrepreneur, a man whose Midas fingers grasped the money bags of sport, entertainment, finance, and moulded shapes in politics and journalism to his own purpose in a ruthless journey to power and fame. He typifies the modern buccaneers who plundered Sydney, N.S.W., in the early 1900's, and yet who, strangely enough, helped in the building of their country's greatness. (Publisher's blurb).
