Manning Clark is a giant of Australia’s cultural landscape. His impact and influence on our history and our way of understanding our history make up a lasting legacy. Mark McKenna is one of Australia’s leading historians. A research fellow in History at the University of Sydney, he is the author of several prize-winning books, essays and articles. Seven years in the making, his biography of Manning Clark is his most ambitious project to date. A sweeping portrait that draws heavily from Clark’s extensive private letters, journals and diaries, McKenna’s biography explored Clark the historian, Clark the believer, Clark the public figure, and Clark the man. It is insightful, compassionate and compelling, and McKenna discusses the book, and the burdens of biography.
