Power Without Glory is, without doubt, an Australian classic. When first published, Frank Hardy's famous and controversial novel about one man's ruthless rise from his working class origins caused a furore that has been unmatched in Australian history.

This is the story of Melbourne's sordid beginnings; of corruption, greed, brutality and fear. And of John West - unscrupulous in his methods and obsessive and unrelenting in his quest for wealth and political power.

In the highly explosive atmosphere aroused by the Communist Party Dissolution Act of 1950, a sensational uproar erupted over Power Without Glory when Frank Hardy was jailed and charged with criminal libel. The book behind Australia's all-time popular TV dramatisation, the issues surrounding this novel and its defence are, even today, still unresolved.
