Monash University President and Vice-Chancellor Margaret Gardner AC, together with the Honourable Julia Gillard AC and Noel Pearson are pleased to launch the The Powerbroker: Mark Leibler, An Australian Jewish Life by Michael Gawenda.

The Powerbroker is about Jewish life in Australia - the interaction between private wealth and politics, and about a man whose ambition and energy have made him a highly effective player in Australian affairs.

Award-winning journalist, author and former editor of The Age, Michael Gawenda, skillfully tells this multi-layered story of Mark Leibler’s life so far. Through interviews and meticulous research, he describes how Mark Leibler rose to a position of immense influence in Australian public life and how he became a committed advocate for radical reform on behalf of Australia’s Indigenous people.

Watch this online book launch below at 6pm, Monday the 20th of July. We hope you enjoy the event.
