'The Hawke Ascendancy is the story of how the Labor Party returned to power in 1983 after its crushing defeat in 1975.
It is the inside story of three men - Bob Hawke, Malcolm Fraser and Bill Hayden - and their unique power struggle. The account covers the full eight years which began with Fraser's 1975 supremacy and closed with Hawke's 1983 triumph and first year of office.'
