Book Description Allen & Unwin, North Sydney, 1991. Pictorial Wraps. Book Condition: Fine. First Edition. The Press Gallery in the Hawke Era. Includes appendixes, notes, bibliography, plus index. Review copy, with 5 extra items laid in, as follows: publisher's Media Release sheet, Australian Book Review printed letter with handwritten note, plus 3 newspaper articles (review of the book by Geoffrey Baker from The Age 20 April 1991, plus 2 political articles from The Australian dated 5 & 14 June 1991). "The Courtesans is the story of the relationship between the press gallery and the most media-conscious government Australia has ever seen, the government of Bob Hawke. As a result of its preference for the Hawke style and its sympathy with the government's objectives, the Press Gallery has moved close to the government - perhaps too close for the principles of journalism and the practice of democracy. The Courtesans is about power without responsibility. It argues that the Press Gallery is a secret and elite institution, out of step with the community it purports to serve and obsessed with its own machinations. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to look behind the facade and understand the real workings of Australian politics." A LIKE NEW very nice clean tight solid softcover copy. 203pp. Uncommon. SB-185. Size: 19 x 13cm. Bookseller Inventory # 018038
