AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rudd's Way presents the first in-depth analysis of the way that Kevin Rudd's government worked and why Labor eventually decided its leader had to be removed. Stuart argues that, more than under any previous government, the policies and direction of Australia over the period from November 2007 to June 2010 were set by just one man — Prime Minister Kevin Rudd — until he finally overreached himself and threatened to lead the party to electoral oblivion.

'The background events and policy blunders that led to Rudd's fall are described here in gripping detail, until we come to the final cataclysmic moment when the prime minister realised he'd been abandoned by the very team he'd led to government. It is the tragic story of a man who wanted to achieve much, but who was eventually unable to take action on the one problem he wanted to do more about than anything else — climate change.' (From the publisher's website.)
