'Nordy. Arnold Nordmeyer. A Political Biography' - Mary Logan

Steele Roberts 2008, card covers, 488pp. Former library usual markings, stamps, stickers. Overall worn through being well read but still reasonable condition.

'Mary Logan's sympathetic biography of Arnold Nordmeyer traverses a 20th century political landscape where Savage, Lee, Graser, Holland, Nash, Holyoake and Kirk loom large. Throughout it all Nordy stands out as a humble, principled and astute politician who made a profound contribution to New Zealand. Nordmeyer formed his vision of an equitable society during the depression when he worked to set up a pilot welfare scheme in a South Island hydro town. A member of the first Labour Government in the 1930's, he played a major role in shaping the social welfare system that we take for granted today. In 1958 as Minister of Finance he deliverd the controversial 'Black Budget' which was to Labour's nemesis - though Nordmeyer himself has been vindicated by history.'
