The Unmaking of Gough is the story of the most dramatic and extraordinary eighteen months in Australian political history. Paul Kelly draws upon his personal conversations with the main players at the time to tell this compelling story. Kelly deals with the loans affair, the Cairns sacking, Malcolm Fraser's overthrow of Bill Snedden, the 1975 constitutional crisis and the dismissal of the Whitlam government. This is a story of power, intrigue and events almost beyond belief.

'.essential for detail. the best buy as permanent record.' - Humphrey McQueen

'Of the books, the one which to my mind puts the fairest construction on the course of events is Kelly's.' - Professor Geoffrey Sawer

'Paul Kelly's is the reference we keep going back to.' - Peter Bowers

'Kelly's book stretches back further and provides a much fuller picture of the Liberals. He is also more even-handed.' - Michelle Grattan
