Philip Ayres is the author of Owen Dixon, of Malcolm Fraser, of Mawson (still the only whole-of-life biography of its subject aside from Lady Mawson's), of Prince of the Church (on Cardinal Moran, the first Australian cardinal), of Fortunate Voyager- The World of Ninian Stephen and of numerous scholarly books and articles on English eighteenth-century culture including Classical Culture and the Idea of Rome in Eighteenth Century England. He is a Fellow of both the Royal Historical Society of London and the Australian Academy of the Humanities, and a recipient of the Centenary Medal for contributions to literature.
By unearthing a massive amount of new material, using thousands of previously unpublished personal letters and expeditioners' diary notes, Ayres manages to chip away the ice to reveal the man inside the well-known image of a knight in woolen armor. "The Age""
