Stirring the Possum: A Political Autobiography by James McClelland

From his days as a young Trotskyist in the 140s - secretly in love with an enemy Stalinist - to his role in the 80s as commissioner in an inquiry into the Maralinga nuclear tests. Jim McClelland has been known as a stirrer.

In his autobiography he offers us a perspective on Australian politics that spans 50 years. His critical assessment of of public figures and events is both humorous and acerbic; his account of a distinguished and varied career reflects his energy, his sharp mind and his unfailing capacity to 'liven things up'.
