Trusty And Well-Beloved

A Life Of Keith Officer, Australia's First Diplomat

Alan Fewster
Born into colonial wealth and privilege, Sir Keith Officer (1889-1969) was the archetypal Anglo-Australian. Officer's life and career, from Gallipoli to the Cold War, epitomised the Westminter tradition of apolitical public service, and served as a model for the first generation of Australian diplomats. A very good historical biography - a window on to lost and exotic worlds and an exploration of a strangely familiar old Australia.
