'This is the most complete biography of William Morris Hughes, one of the most dynamic figures in Australian history. A member of the Federal Parliament for fifty-two years, from its first session, he became a legend in his lifetime - "the little digger", Australia's leader in the first World War, the orator who fired wartime Britain, the Labour leader who broke with his party on the conscription issue, the antagonist of Woodrow Wilson at Versailles, the man whose wit and explosive force are the subject of innumerable good stories.'
