Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

Paul Keating is widely credited as the chief architect of the most significant period of political and economic reform in Australia's history. Twenty years on there is no story from the horse's mouth of how it all came about. No autobiography, No memoir. Yet he is the supreme storyteller of politics. This book of revelations fills the gap. What emerges is a treasure trove of anecdotes, insights, reflections and occasional

admissions from one of the most loved and hated political leaders we have known - a man who either led or was the driving force through thirteen years of Labour Government that changed the face of Australia. This is a man who as Prime Minister personally negotiated the sale of a quarter of the government-owned Qantas in his own office for $665 million, then delighted in watching the buyer's hand shake so much that the champagne spilt down his shirtsleeve. He tells of his grave moment of doubt after making one of the riskiest calls of his political life. 243 x 157mm., pp. xii, 794, black & white plates, notes, bibliography, index. NEW.
