dc.description.abstractThis is a fascinating, inspiring and disquieting book. It is fascinating because it succeeds so well in its comprehensive overview of policy making and policy intentions during the Hawke government (1983–91). That success derives from the unparalleled mix of insiders (former ministers, public servants, leaders of unions and NGOs), journalists and academic analysts, though the voice that is notably absent is that of business. This book is capacious enough to sustain many interpretations. It is a rich resource for understanding politics, policy making and leadership in the Hawke years, and it provokes deep reflection on the state of politics now.en
