This week we remember former Australian Prime Minister, Edward Gough Whitlam AC, QC. He served as the country's 21st Prime Minister from 1972 to 1975, the first Labor Prime Minister since 1949. Whitlam was famously dismissed from his position as Prime Minister by the then Governor-General, Sir John Kerr, on the 11th November, 1975. The dismissal ultimately resulted in a return to power by the Liberal Country Party Coalition under the leadership of Malcolm Fraser. The featured titles relate to his life and to the period of his Prime Ministership. Reserve items for $1.35 or check for the titles next time you visit a library branch.
