'Cameron Hazlehurst's account blends generous quotation from a rich variety of sources with incisive commentary on the ideals and actions of the man who was at the centre of Australian political life for nearly forty years. menzies Observed will revive memories, challenge prejudices, and provoke argument. It displays a man whose surface confidence and serenity masked doubt and unquenched ambitions, a political opportunist never satisfied with the home stage, yearning for international recognition, a man with a dream of imperial unity but no vision to inspire his own country.'
