A biography of Clyde Cameron
Bill Guy’s biography of Labor legend Clyde Cameron takes the reader from shearing shed to cabinet room, telling the story of the Australian ‘left’, it’s history and its challenges for the future.
Cameron’s life spans four-fifths of the Australian Labor Party’s history and many of the great political events of Australia since World War II. Cameron was already a socialist when he joined the ALP at the age of 15 and he has never swerved from that political philosophy – something he says cannot be claimed by the Party. As well as exploring a remarkable life, with a due share of personal tragedy, this exceptional biography illumines the life and times of the nation itself.
After three years with the Royal Navy, Bill Guy has spent a working lifetime in journalism. Born in Liverpool, England, he gained his early newspaper experience in four English counties before graduating to the national Daily Express where he stayed for 13 years. In 1967 he emigrated with his wife and three children to Australia and was for many years foreign editor of the Adelaide Advertiser. He now freelances and is working on a novel.
