AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Tame Tasmanian examines the neglected career of Australian prime minister Joseph Lyons and his quest for peace, set in the turbulent 1930s. But Lyons was not just a peacemaker — he also accepted the need for rearmament and presided over five such programs up until 1939, which is itself a striking tale of technical innovation and resource management. Although peace eluded him, Lyons left the nation well prepared for dangerous times.

This is a compelling account of one man's struggle for the security of his country.' (Publication summary)
