Walter Nash (1882-1968) was among the most influential of the group of Labour Party leaders who created the welfare state. He was a member of parliament for almost 40 years and he was one of New Zealand political leaders known internationally. Keith Sinclair's engrossing biography traces Walter Nash's development from his youth through to his determination to build a more just society. Nash grappled with an array of practical problems such as finance, trade, war and international relations. Walter Nash is a riveting account of New Zealand politics and of a man whose enthusiasm, drive and personal quirks aroused admiration laced with exasperation in those who worked with him. This highly readable and important work was enjoyed by many as a New Zealand Listener serial.
