Second part of John Anderson-Dr Chavura interview now available
Campion’s history lecturer Dr Stephen Chavura has co-authored a new book on Australia’s longest-serving Prime Minister, Robert Menzies.
In The Forgotten Menzies, Dr Chavura and Greg Melleuish delve into the history of the founder of the Liberal Party, whom they describe as Australia’s “most thoughtful” PM.
Dr Chavura recorded an interview with ABC Radio’s Phillip Adams on Late Night Live about the new book.
The pair discuss Menzies within his own historical context, his passion for university education, and whether or not it is possible to transpose his policies of the 20th century onto today.
