A must read for all Australians who care about this country's past, as well as its future.
In 1988, Queensland politician Bob Katter Jnr was, at short notice, called upon to officiate and entertain the King and Queen of Spain. At dinner the three discussed Australian white settlement and our forebears, prompting Queen Sofia to remark, ‘What an incredible race of people you are.’
Today Bob Katter Jnr is one of the country’s best known federal politicians. He’s forthright, outspoken and has achieved extraordinary notoriety as a politician of real conviction across an astonishing breadth of issues that defy all attempts at easy categorisation. Bob Katter is a complex man, and he’s passionate about what made this country great, and what is needed to ensure that it remains so as we negotiate our way further into the twenty-first century.
An Incredible Race of People is a highly personal and at times challenging investigation of our politics and industry over many decades: heroes are applauded and pretenders dismissed, urgent issues are identified and solutions tabled. In the tradition of the greatest statesmen, Bob Katter Jnr urges us to consider, discuss, and act to ensure Australia’s future remains bright.
Very informative tells what my father has been saying for years, and he's an Italian migrant. Oh what Australia could be with leaders of vision and not worried about the 24 hour news cycle.
An incredible race of people
A wonderful stroll through Australia's history with a few amusing stories and true insight into some of the important aspects of the nations development. This book was not what I thought it was going to be but I found it informative and entertaining and a very good read. Given this was written before Bob announced the launch of his political party and the election was way into the future, I think there a are quite a few parts of this book that point the way toward where we should be heading as a nation. Perhaps it was part of Bobs great plan, perhaps not, but it certainly gave me more confidence in having him as a potential Prime Minister. I have known Bob Katter for a few years, when he was our champion for the reef closure fight, and I said at that time that if anyone in Australia could lead a revolution it was Bob. This book gives you an understanding of who he is and where he came from and why he is the way he is, he is no mad hatter but a very passionate man who loves his country and places his loyalty to his people above party politics. I urge you to read this book even if you do not support his politics.
