AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Al Grassby, the flamboyant previous Minister in the Whitlam Government, and Sylvia Ordonez have written the first biography of the first Labor Prime Minister. Today John Cristian Watson is 'The Man Time Forgot'. His life tells us much about the transition from the nineteenth century world of a global British Empire to the creation of a federated Australian nation state.'

'John Christian Watson, born in 1867 in Chile, was a plain-spoken and self-effacing man who eschewed controversy. In 1904, he became Australia’s first Labor Prime Minister, but the Party lacked a parliamentary majority, and the Government lasted less than four months.'  (Introduction)
