From his days as a young Trotskyist in the 1940s, -- secretly in love with an enemy Stalinist -- to his role in the 80s as commissioner in an enquiry into the Maralinga nuclear tests,, Jim McClelland has been known as a stirrer. In his autobiography he offers us a perspective of Australian politics that spans 50 years. His critical assessment of public figures is both humourous and acerbic and includes insight into characters such as Robert Menzies, Lionel Murphy, John Kerr and Neville Wran. -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
