Based on more than 100 interviews with key players, politicians, advisers, and public servants, this is the inside story of how Paul Keating and John Howard changed Australian politics. Capturing the authentic nature of Australian politics, this account chronicles how, despite differences in belief, temperament, and party, Keating and Howard united for the common goal of making Australia into a successful nation of the globalized age. Arguing that Keating and Howard have the most success when they collaborate, this detailed and informative record follows the politicians’ combined efforts to alter the nation's direction, redefine their parties, and manage the new economic, social, cultural, and foreign policy agendas.
