Description - On the Record by Laurie Oakes

Laurie Oakes has been writing about politics, power and politicians for over forty years. Time and time again he has broken the biggest stories because of what he knows and who he knows - and his unique ability to get people to tell him what is going on, or will go on.The articles in this collection range from the Australia of the era of 'Black Jack' John McEwen, John Gorton, Billy McMahon and Gough Whitlam right through to the rise and fall of Kevin Rudd and the era of Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott. And they all have the trademark Laurie Oakes qualities of perception, clarity and great judgement.
