Bold and thorough, this biography traces the life of one of Australia’s most controversial and legendary journalists, Alan “The Red Fox” Reid, who covered the nation’s politics from the 1930s to the 1980s. Demonstrating how Reid not only reported the news but shaped it due to his connections with Labor Prime Ministers Ben Chifley and John Curtin, this volume covers a number of momentous events in Reid’s career—including his early associations with the Labor Party, his split with the party in the 1950s, and his breaking of the “36 faceless men” story in 1963, exposing the 36 delegates to the Australian Labor Party who dictated policies to the exclusion of the party’s elected leadership team. This narrative is sure to captivate those interested in the history of journalism and politics in Australia.
