The Creation of Trust: A History of the Public Trustees

By Craig Dent

The Creation of Trust is the intriguing story of Australia’s Public Trustees, revealing their rich heritage and casting a rarely-seen light on their often misunderstood purpose, services and contribution to society.  The office of the Public Trustee has a long and curious past stretching back to medieval times. This book explores its history and is an account of scandal, honour, sustainability, resilience and of how Public Trustees today continue to be of service to Australians in an environment of social change and increasing community expectations.
