Summary
Since the 1980s Judith Brett has been helping to shape Australians' conversations about politics, bringing a historian's eye to contemporary issues and probing the psychology of our prime ministers. Her writings about Liberal Party leaders have been widely influential, especially her famous 1984 essay 'Robert Menzies' Forgotten People' and her prizewinning book of the same name, as well as her analysis of John Howard's nationalism.

Always she writes as a citizen for her fellow citizens, in her distinctive voice enquiring, accessible and wry
