    “I am not a believer in looking at the past because it is dead, but looking at the past because it is living.”  Sir Robert Menzies.

    No Prime Minister did more to shape modern Australia than Sir Robert Menzies. His watershed election victory in 1949 marked the start an unprecedented period of progress, population growth and rising living standards.

    The contributors to this important work take a fresh look at Menzies’ influence and legacy.

    They conclude that Australia’s post-war success was not pre-destined but was driven by the ambitions of an industrious middle class empowered by the principles of freedom Menzies upheld.  

    The message for today’s Australia is clear: innovation and enterprise - not government - hold the key to future prosperity.

    The Forgotten People: Updated

    Edited by Paul Ritchie

    Paperback, 240 pages

    ISBN: 9781925826012

    Release Date June 2018

    Published by Jeparit Press: A Connor Court Publishing imprint in association with the Menzies Research Centre. 

    Robert Menzies’ famous Forgotten People speeches captured the hopes of Australians as they looked forward to a better life after World War II. While times have changed, Menzies’ themes of freedom, opportunity and responsibility remain.

    In The Forgotten People: Updated, Menzies’ political heirs revisit these themes against the contemporary backdrop of freedom of speech, urban life, fairness, education, political correctness, Trump, the rise of China and more.

    Contributors include:

     Tony Abbott, Josh Frydenberg, Kelly O’Dwyer, Christopher Pyne, Ken Wyatt, Peta Credlin, Michaelia Cash, Alan Tudge, Paul Fletcher, Tim Wilson, Tony Smith, Linda Reynolds, Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, Jim Molan and Scott Ryan.

    Philosophical but practical, contemporary but timeless, The Forgotten People: Updated is an antidote to the cynicism of our times.
