Book Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. Jacket Condition: Very Good. Size F: 9"-10" Tall (228-254mm). The Confessions of Clyde Cameron spans nearly eight decades of Australian social and policial history. Whether Clyde Cameron is discussing his mother, the Aboriginal Camerons, getting paid for shearing his first sheep even though it died in his hands, working the sheds along the river Darling as a union official, corruption in the AWU, his admiration for South Australian Liberal Premier Tom Playford, Don Dunstan spurning his adice to change his accent and add more padding to the shoulders of his suit coats, intervention into the Victorian Branch in 1970, his dismissal from the Ministry of Labour and Immigration, or his recent career as an oral historian, he presents himself and those about him with candour, wit and an eye for human perversity.
