Publishers Description: Written by one of Australia's most esteemed political journalists, this detailed coverage of the 2010 federal election analyzes eight months of dramatic Australian politics. Examining Malcolm Turnbull's manic desire to get his own way in the party and Kevin Rudd's authoritarian approach to government, this account follows the politicians' subsequent demise and the ascension of both Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard. From Australia's first woman Prime Minister to a hung parliament and a three-week period sans a Prime Minister, this book follows the 2010 election and its aftermath.
