There is no more dramatic event in our political history than the dismissal.� This book is the definitive story, filled with fresh documents, revelations and new interviews that change our understanding of this event.� It is also a brilliant forensic analysis of the ruthless, proud and stubborn main players - Malcolm Fraser, Gough Whitlam and Sir John Kerr.�
As keys to our understanding, Kelly and Bramston examine four central aspects of the dismissal: the real attitude of Buckingham Palace towards Kerr; whether Kerr tipped Fraser off about his plan; Kerr's deception of Whitlam; and Kerr's dealings with former High Court judges Sir Garfield Barwick and Sir Anthony Mason.� In the gripping story that follows, the ambitions and flaws of Whitlam, Fraser and Kerr are laid bare as never before. �
Drawing on a range of new sources, some of which have never before been made public - including hundreds of pages from Kerr's archives - this remarkable account is dispassionate in its analysis, vivid in its narrative and brutal in its conclusions.�
It exposes the true motivations, the extent of the deceit and the scale of the collusion. �
'It was a premeditated and an elaborate deception.'� Paul Keating
