Cover notes:
"An Australian Governor-General has total freedom in choosing his topic for public address - yet at the same time he must beware of saying too much too emphatically.

This 'open go' requires him to tread a delicate path between empty rhetoric and furious controversy, calling for a skilful touch in expression and much integrity of opinion.

Sir Paul Hasluck shows a happy blend of these qualities in this volume of collected speeches made on civic occasions. They constitute an important record of a statesman's public thought and reveal that deeply thoughtful consideration Sir Paul has brought to all his duties."
