For the past half century, the National Press Club has stood at the centre of political and social debate in Australia. Leaders and opinion makers have sought to speak at the National Press Club, using its pulpit to discuss and debate the issues of the day.

To celebrate the club’s fiftieth anniversary, this book collects the best speeches of the past 50 years and brings to life the Club’s rich and colourful history and role.

Stand and Deliver brings together some of the most influential, controversial and iconic figures in recent history, including Bill Gates, Margaret Thatcher, Paul Keating, Julia Gillard, Germaine Greer, Bob Hawke, Barry Humphries, Kevin Rudd, John Howard and the Dalai Lama.

Australia’s leading institution for informed discussion and debate, the National Press Club of Australia was established by journalists to provide a genuine national forum for discussion of the issues of the day by the personalities who help shape them. Through the National Australia Bank Address, the Press Club has developed a reputation nationally and internationally as Australia’s leading forum for the discussion of issues and debate on public policy in a lively, informative and entertaining format.
