Summary:
  • A response to the lack of vision displayed by the current government's leadership; Horne makes a number of salient points about the concept of vision as coming as much from words as from legislation. He takes an anecdotal view of the changes in Australia, revisiting the streets of his childhood.
  • "In his path-breaking The Lucky Country, Donald Horne wrote a text for the times as they seemed in the age of Robert Gordon Menzies. In Looking For Leadership he writes of the distractions and quandaries of ordinary Australians at a time when political leadership has drifted away to languish in what he calls 'John Howard's Dreamtime'. In a unique presentation of Australians as a people of great potential waiting to resume their history, Horne gives a masterly picture of a prime minister lost in events in a society rich in possibilities"--cover.
