Fridays with Jim Conversations about our Country with Jim Bolger

Fridays with Jim Conversations about our Country with Jim Bolger
More Views

A self-taught son of Irish immigrants, devout Catholic, rough-hewn King Country
farmer and farming lobbyist, Jim Bolger entered New Zealand political life in the
1970s. He was a flinty Minister of Labour under Robert Muldoon and Prime Minister
from 1990 to 1997. As ambassador to Washington, he helped create warmer
relations with the United States. In recent years, he has chaired boards, served as
the chancellor of the University of Waikato and marked more than a half-century of
marriage to Joan, with whom he has nine children.
Never given to orthodoxies, yet staunchly National in his politics, in his still-energetic
eighties he remains an impressively brisk progressive thinker.
For six months he regularly sat down on Fridays with the writer David Cohen
to reflect on his life and times, our nation and world. Fridays with Jim reveals a
quintessential man of the old New Zealand who is fully in sync with the new New
Zealand, and with plenty of ideas about where it's all heading.
