Inside the Hawke-Keating Government

A Cabinet Diary

Gareth Evans
As good as it gets in Australian politics.
As good as it gets in Australian politics. That's how the Hawke-Keating Government is now widely regarded. But how did this highly able, ambitious, strong-willed group work through its crises and rivalries, and achieve what it did?
Gareth Evans's diary, written in the mid-1980s and published now for the first time, is the consummate insider's account. It not only adds much new material to the historical record, but is perceptive, sharp and unvarnished in its judgments, lucidly written, and often highly entertaining.
