Description: 350 pages. Book appears to have hardly been read and is in Fine condition throughout. This Is The Secret History Of John Howard's Campaign Against Boat People-that Began With The Tampa And Ended Ten Extraordinary Weeks Later-after Deaths And Disappearances, Violent Confrontations In The Indian Ocean And International Uproar-with The Australian People Giving The Prime Minister His Third Most Daring Election Victory.

Publishers Description: Award-winning writer David Marr and investigative journalist Marian Wilkinson burrow deep into the world of spin-doctors, bureaucrats and the military to reveal the whole story, play by play - from the stricken asylum seekers first sight of the red dot on the horizon that was the "Tampa" to John Howard singing the national anthem at his election victory celebrations. This book aims to bring to light the manipulation of the public, the mutability of the press and the machinations of one government in its all-consuming lust for power.
