The highly anticipated book from one of Australia's most controversial politicians.

In 1988, Queensland politician Bob Katter Jr was, at short notice, called upon to officiate and entertain the King and Queen of Spain. At dinner the three discussed Australian white settlement and our forebears, prompting Queen Sofia to remark, 'What an incredible race of people you are.'
Today Bob Katter Jr is one of the country's best known federal politicians. He's forthright, outspoken and has achieved extraordinary notoriety as a politician of real conviction across an astonishing breadth of issues that defy all attempts at easy categorisation.

Bob Katter Jr is a complex man, and he's passionate about what made this country great, and what is needed to ensure that it remains so as we negotiate our way further into the twenty-first century. 
An Incredible Race of People is a highly personal and at times challenging investigation of our politics and industry over many decades: heroes are applauded and pretenders dismissed, urgent issues are identified and solutions tabled. In the tradition of the greatest statesmen, Bob Katter Jr urges us to consider, discuss, and act to ensure Australia's future remains bright.
