Synopsis
This new book provides a fresh analysis of Queensland during the colonial era. It provides new insights into Queensland’s past.

Sir Thomas McIlwraith thundered across Queensland’s political and business landscape for 30 years. The three times Premier took bold and audacious actions, and had the energy and motivation to drive not only the colony’s economic development, but also his own business enterprises.

The biography analyses McIlwraith’s progressive beliefs in economic development, European settlement, railways, responsible government, nationalism, federation, republicanism, defence and foreign policy, issues that are as relevant today as they were in the colonial era.

The publication narrates the history of one of Queensland’s great political figures, charting the trials and tribulations of arguably one of the most significant Scotsmen to come to the Antipodes.

Modern day historians have presented McIlwraith as a larger-than-life conservative entrepreneur rather than a classical laissez-faire liberal who strived to make Queensland the premier colony of Australia.
