Summary 'Sir William Deane: The Things That Matter' is a sympathetic profile of this popular public figure who, as governor-general, was concerned with issues still very much on the agenda today. Speaking on topics as varied as relations with Aboriginal Australians, the social obligations of the corporate world, social justice, our obligations to those who have slipped through the cracks in society, and the roles of the law and government, Deane established himself as the conscience of the nation, carrying out the duties of his position with style and dignity
