Abstract

Dr Caryn Coatney considers behind-the-scenes accounts of some of Curtin’s most trusted confidants. They reveal personal glimpses into his political career, from being a champion of the working-class press to becoming the prime minister. His media mastery elicited more Australians’ support for nearly one million citizens serving in the Second World War.©
