Title:Nordy: Arnold Nordmeyer - A Political Biography
Steele Roberts, 2008. Arnold Nordmeyer formed his vision of an equitable society in the Depression, and was elected to the first Labour government in the tubulent 1930s where he played a major role in shaping the social security system we have today. Nordy was also a radical Minister of Health, but unfortunately is most remembered for his 1958 'Black Budget.' Mary Logan's sympathetic biography traverses a 20th century political landscape where Savage, Lee, Fraser, Holland, Nash, Holyoake and Kirk loom large. Throughout it all Norday stands out as a humble, principled and astute politician who made a profound contribution to New Zealand.
