Power is the only measure of a politician that matters: how they win power, how they use power, how they lose power. Catch and Kill is an inside account of the beguiling and nomadic nature of the unholy trinity of politics—the winning, the using, the losing. Joel Deane’s gripping study of the politics of power takes us into the inner sanctum of state and national politics in Australia, investigating how four friends—Steve Bracks, John Brumby, John Thwaites, and Rob Hulls—beat the factions, won office in Victoria, then tried to hijack Canberra. It delivers a slice of political gothic, exploring the heart of the contemporary Labor Party in search of the nature of power.

Book Description University of Queensland Press, Australia, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Power is the only measure of a politician that matters. How they win power. How they wield power. How they lose power. Catch and Kill is an inside account of the beguiling and nomadic nature of the unholy trinity of politics - the winning, the wielding, the losing. Taking us into the inner sanctum of state and national politics, Joel Deane investigates how four friends - Steve Bracks, John Brumby, John Thwaites and Rob Hulls - beat the factions, won office in Victoria, achieved progressive reforms, then tried to hijack Canberra. 'We were,' Bracks says, 'a government that could catch and kill its own.' Drawing on dozens of interviews with key figures, Deane provides a candid insight into the triumphs and failures of the Bracks - Brumby government, as well as those of its federal and state counterparts. He also shines a light on the personalities behind these decisions - their ambitions, their passions and their disappointments. A gripping work of narrative non-fiction, Catch and Kill delivers a slice of political gothic, venturing inside the heart of the contemporary Labor Party in search of the nature of power. 'Joel Dean writes about politics in the way it should be practised- with a cool head, a warm heart and a sense of humour.' George Megalogenis. Seller Inventory # AAV9780702249808
