Arthur Augustus Calwell (1896-1973) played a dominant role in Australia's development into a free, confident and independent nation in the twentieth century. This new biography tells the story of his life, career and achievements and argues that this knowledge is essential for understanding our Australian heritage and identity. Arthur Calwell held major positions at most levels within the Australian Labor Party. He was a leader within the trade union, an elected member of Melbourne City Council, and had responsible positions in the Victorian Public Service before entering Federal Parliament as the Member for Melbourne (1940-1972). He initiated and implemented policies that transformed Australia, enabling millions of migrants from several countries to migrate to Australia.
