Ian Hancock has had full access to John Gorton's private papers, to Gorton himself and a wide variety of former supporters, associates and opponents, and made extensive use of archival and manuscript sources. he has written an authoritative and colourful account of both a unique Australian politician and a critical period in our political history.'
