On the Edges of History: A Memoir of Law, Books and Politics

Author(s): Michael Sexton


Michael Sexton has taken part in and recorded some of the most interesting history of Australia's post-war years. He tells the story here of his major cases as a lawyer, many of them as Solicitor General for New South Wales, and of his long involvement with politics and public administration. He recounts the controversies surrounding some of his own books, in particular his account of the Whitlam government where he worked as a ministerial adviser and his use of secret documents to reveal how Australia forced its way into the Vietnam War in the 1960s. This is a fascinating look at some of modern Australia's legal, political and literary history.
