The much-anticipated biography of Bert Kelly by Dr Hal Colebatch tells the story of how Bert Kelly succeeded in changing opinion on an issue which had been described as an Australian “faith and a dogma” …. protectionism. No other Australian parliamentarian, through sheer tenacity and indifference to preferment, achieved so much.
The Modest Member: The Life and Times of Bert Kelly by Hal Colebatch is now available for purchase through The Bert Kelly Research Centre. Cost: $29.95 (including GST). Free postage within Australia.
