"How did an obscure peanut farmer with little formal schooling become one of Australia's most powerful and controversial politicians?
The amazing career of Johannes Bjelke-Petersen, Premier of Queensland, has shocked and surprised many, winning him the praise of supporters and attracting the derision of critics. Hugh Lunn shows why some revere him as a saviour, why some see him as a national joke, and why others have tried to assassinate him. As a tough and single-minded organiser he's been able to wield a political club not only in Queensland but also throughout Australia and even internationally."
