1975 was a year marked by political upheaval and cultural revival, a time when it was exciting to be an Australian. In this fascinating book, journalist Mark Juddery examines the year that marked a complete turning point in our history; politically, socially and most of all, on the international stage. Comprising of interviews with prominent Australians who remember the year well, as well as issues of the time, 1975 explores: The Whitlam Dismissal; the introduction of Medibank, PNG?s independence from Australia; the return of native land to Aborigines in the Northern Territory; the ?rst time unemployment soared passed 5%; the ?rst Australian political sex scandal to make headlines; Malcolm Fraser?s egging in Darwin soon after the Dismissal; Peter Weir?s Picnic at Hanging Rock being shown to an international audience; release of our highest selling album by AC/DC, the launch of Radio 2JJ (which became Triple J); and the year that we admitted that the Vietnam War was a mistake!
