Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sir Johannes "Joh" Bjelke-Petersen, KCMG (13 January 1911 - 23 April 2005), New Zealand-born Australian politician, was the longest-serving and longest-lived Premier of Queensland. He held office from 1968 to 1987, a period that saw considerable economic development in the state. His uncom promising conservatism (including his role within the downfall of the Whitlam federal government), his political longevity, and his leadership of a government that, in its later years, was revealed to be institutionally corrupt, made him one of the best-known, and most controversial political figures of 20th century Australia.show more
