The Queensland Caesar: Sir Thomas McIlwraith

Sir Thomas McIlwraith thundered across Queensland’s political and business landscape for 30 years. The three times Premier took bold and audacious actions and had the energy and motivation to drive not only the colony’s economic development but his own business
enterprises.

This biography by Denver Beanland analyses McIlwraith’s progressive beliefs in economic development, railways, responsible government,
nationalism, federation and foreign policy. Issues that are as relevant today as they were in the colonial era.
