AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This is a fascinating account of one of the most challenging political campaigns Australia has ever seen. From the detailed war-gaming of potential political outcomes to the nail-biting lead-up to the polls ... what really happened on that campaign trail? How did Rudd resume the prime ministership? 'Did his ultimate push come too late, or was saving the furniture the best the ALP could hope for?

These diaries reveal the sense of urgency and the size of the hurdles to be overcome in the remarkably short time that Team Rudd was given to try to turn around the Government’s fortunes. They are a rare insight into the complexities of running a campaign&emdash;the strategic and tactical decisions that challenged the team every day as they tried to snatch an unlikely win.

'Framed by a prologue and epilogue to set the scene and to analyse the election wash-up, this is a candid, blow-by-blow account of what really went on.' (Publisher's blurb)
