The late,great Bob Hawke is the most loved Prime Minister of modern times and this November his widow Blanche d’Alpuget is releasing an extensively updated and revised edition of his famous biography, with a foreword by Kim Beazley and 6x16 page pic sections including never before seen images from Bob and Blanche’s collection.

When Bob and Blanche planned this new edition, and Blanche started writing (while his primary carer), they did not realise that he would die within weeks, and the writing was completed through the grief of the following months. Bob Hawke was a dynamic politician who was elected four times as Australia’s prime minister and our longest serving Labor prime minister. He was an environmentalist before it was fashionable, who loathed racism and had the foresight to see the power that China would wield on the world stage. Under Hawke’s leadership Australia became a forwardlooking and humane country whose voice commanded respect on the international stage.

In addition to a new section of over 5000 words, 96 pages of photographs (including many never before published images from his office and their personal collection) and an appendix including historic speeches from his memorial service, Blanche has extensively revised and updated the second section Hawke: The Prime Minister, drawing on additional information which came to light in the months before and after his death.
