Overview


The dismissal of the Whitlam government on November 11, 1975, was arguably the most dramatic event in Australian political history. To mark its 30th anniversary, this account by a then-insider who is also an authority on Australian constitutional history revisits the major themes of 1975 and describes how various interest groups set out to derail the reform agenda of the first Labor government in 23 years. Written with clarity and extraordinary insight, this study of power is also a fascinating political story that offers lessons about what may lie ahead for future opposition movements in Australia.
