Robert Menzies, Australia’s longest serving prime minister, and William McMahon, our 20th prime minister, are both recent subjects of extensive biographies. Both men had turbulent careers and were often maligned, but do they offer important contemporary lessons for those who want to understand, and master, the art and science of politics? Troy Bramston, author of Robert Menzies – the art of politics and Patrick Mullins author of the new McMahon biography Tiberius with a Telephone, discuss their latest works with Edwina Jans, from the Museum of Australian Democracy.
