The Whitlam Venture

by Alan Reid

Hill of Content, 1976 [First Edition], ISBN 0855720794, black and white photographic plates, hardcover, dust-jacket

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing to edges and corners, previous owners details on inside front cover; dust-jacket shows some edge and shelf wear with rubbing, small chips and tears, creasing to edges and corners.

"Here Mr Reid gives the behind the scenes account of the almost incredible happenings during the Whitlam period as Prime Minister - the hopes, the aspirations, the backstabbings, the cruelties, the fleeting glories and the sheer stupidities of a regime which moved suicidally from crisis to crisis with bewildering speed to the almost inexorable crescendo of dismissal first by the Governor-General and then by the electorate.
Told with all the drama of a novel, Mr Reid's account sheds a pitiless light on the methods and actions of those who controlled Australia's political destiny for those three hectic years, showing them as men who shared both the strengths and frailties of those they ruled."
