Publishers Description: Whats next for the conservative side of politics Where are new battlelines to be drawn Current opposition Leader Tony Abbott offers a frank analysis of the way forward for the Liberal Party from 2009 when he was Federal Shadow Minister for Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs. Here he draws lessons from the dying days of the Howard Government, and gives his views on his contemporaries, including Kevin Rudd, Peter Costello, Julia Gillard and Malcolm Turnbull. In Battlelines, Abbott looks at the values and instincts that drive the Liberal Party and proposes policy that the party should adopt. This is the often humorous story of his own political development. He describes the truth about politicians lives; his days from hell; insider moments from the halls of power; and how a would-be priest believed he had fathered an unknown son. Battlelines outlines a state of play for the Liberal Party, cementing Tony Abbotts reputation as one of the Liberal Partys most interesting thinkers and fearless advocates.
