A stirrer and shaker a a boat-rocker and a confounded nuisance. Geoffrey Serle Roy Douglas ('Pansy') Wright was one of the great Australians of the twentieth century. Born on a hill-country farm in northern Tasmania in 1907, he became an extraordinarily successful medical scientist and a builder of institutions such as the Australian National University, the Peter MacCallum Cancer Clinic and the Howard Florey Institute. He was loved for his brilliant, often ribald, wit, his fierce loyalties and his sympathy for the underdog. He died in 1990, shortly after completing a decade as Chancellor of the University of Melbourne. Wright was a legendary teacher and much-loved colleague and mentor. However, his ebullient style disguised the private difficulties of a person who was often unhappy and awkward with intimacy. He was also a controversial man. His rivals interpreted his relentless energy in creating medical institutions as megalomania. Others found his blunt personal style abrasive and offensive. In particular, his championing of Professor Sydney Sparkes Orr-dismissed by the University of Tasmania in 1956 for allegedly having seduced one of his students-embroiled him in a decade of public controversy. In this delightfully lucid biography, Peter McPhee reveals the many contradictions in this complex and brilliant man.

Few hardy flowering plants have as much to offer as the pansy, viola, or violetta. Easily cultivated and very resistant to pests and diseases, they guarantee flowers from spring until autumn and are in many ways the ideal garden flowers. Pansies, Violas and Violettas covers every possible aspect of the subject, including the history and development of the garden pansy; the introduction of viola and violetta; techniques of propagation, cultivation, and exhibition; and raising new varieties. Together with a substantial descriptive list of named hybrid varieties, details of specialist nurseries, and superb color photographs, this is indeed a complete guide.
