Its publications are commissioned by the Menzies Research Centre and published by Connor Court Publishing. I always feel at home with commercial travellers, because in a sense I'm one myself. He is the man who charms the customer, who sells the goods. And that describes me to perfection. -- R G Menzies Few politicians captivated an audience quite like Bob Menzies. His passion, intellect and humour speak as clearly from the printed page as when delivered from a platform. Yet remarkably, his many brilliant speeches have been largely forgotten, preserved only in original typewritten manuscript hidden in the vaults. The selection brought back to life in this volume will entertain, challenge and inspire in equal measure.
