ANU History's Professor Angela Woollacott has been interviewed by Phillip Adams of Radio National's Late Night Live about her forthcoming book on Don Dunstan, former Premier of South Australia.

Throughout the 60's and 70's Don Dunstan's leadership laid the groundwork for reform and modernisation across several broad reaching areas; women’s rights, indigenous rights, anti-discrimination, consumer protection law, the elevation of the arts, culture, food and wine.

In this new biography, Don Dunstan: the visionary politician who changed Australia, Professor Woollacott examines Don's unique and lasting impact on Australian politics.
