His Way A Biography Of Robert Muldoon
Barry Gustafson
Large Hard Back 546 pages
Very good condition
Robert Muldoon was Prime Minister of New Zealand for eight and a half years (19751984) and Minister of Finance for fifteen years (196772 and 197584) during one of the most difficult periods in the country history. He was the dominant figure in New Zealand political life over the last half century and one of its most controversial and divisive politicians.
This major authorised biography has occupied Professor Gustafson for ten years; it has been extensively researched and long awaited. Fro the opening chapters with their revealing account of Muldoons childhood, His Way is gripping reading and will be of wide interest. The chapters on the calling of the 1984 election and on the currency crisis immediately after the election, for example, break new ground. Gustafsons view of Muldoon is fair and tolerant without either anger or sentimentality. It sees him as a champion of ordinary people, a skilled politician determined to preserve the world he had inherited, and an autocratic leader whose vision over time became anachronistic and inflexible.
His Way is also, and inevitably, a picture of the changing political landscape from the 1940s to the
1980s, turbulent times very different from the years of depression and war in which Muldoon grew
up and which so powerfully shaped his values and perspectives.
The book is based on many hours of conversation with Muldoon himself and on interviews with political colleagues, civil servants, family and friends; it is rich with telling detail and revealing anecdote.
