Summary Malcolm Fraser is one of the least known, most interesting and most misunderstood of Australia's Prime Ministers. In this book, part memoir and part authorised biography, Fraser, at the age of seventy-nine, explains himself and his record in government for the first time speaking from his experience to the present and the future. This edition contains a new postscript written after Fraser's death
