Abstract: If we do not yet have our own Lincoln, Sir William Deane's writing sometimes shimmers with that extraordinary combination of elegant diction and profundity that marks great rhetoric. It is doubtful that any national leader has spoken more eloquently about ANZAC and Australia’s military history while at the same time linking them to our multicultural diversity and our bonds with Aboriginal people. Tony Stephens's book is not a biography but rather an extended profile piece and a commentary on Deane's work as Australia's twenty-second governor-general, built around a collection of his most important speeches.
