Calwell, AA: Be just and fear not

AA Calwell

Be Just and Fear Not, Lloyd O’Neil, Hawthorn, Vic, 1972

Autobiography of Australia’s first Minister for Immigration (1945-49), later Leader of the (Labor) Opposition (1960-67). Includes a personal view of the commencement of the post-World War II immigration program and a clear enunciation of Calwell’s objections to Australia becoming a ‘chocolate-coloured nation’ because it would lead to the formation of ‘black power’ groups here. Also chapters about Archbishop Mannix and Gough Whitlam.
