His Way: A Biography of Robert Muldoon

Barry Gustafson

‘This is political history as it should be written – professional and learned but immensely enjoyable.’ – Roderick Deane, Sunday Star-Times

His Way
is the only authorised biography of New Zealand prime minister Robert Muldoon – one of the dominant political figures of the last half-century in that country.

His Way was based on many hours of conversation with Muldoon himself as well as colleagues, friends, and family, and wide access to the prime minister’s official and private papers and diaries.



Barry Gustafson ONZM, former professor of Politics at the University of Auckland, is the author of a number of books including histories of the Labour and National Parties and highly acclaimed biographies of Savage and Holyoake.
