Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0522847781, Hardcover)

Charles Cameron Kingston was dearly loved by some and vehemently hated by others. He became Premier of South Australia in 1893, but Kingston cared little for the norms of the polite society of late nineteenth-century Adelaide and was ostracised accordingly. Yet he introduced much radical, progressive legislation: thanks to him, South Australia led the world on the enfranchisement of women. What was the source of these contradictory traits? Why - until now - has his leading contribution to Australian Federation never been adequately acknowledged? This lively and meticulous first biography reveals a complex, brilliant and controversial man.
