    'Queensland is the new centre of political gravity in Australia. Twenty years ago it was a repressive and corrupt place out of step with the rest of the nation. Hidden Queensland explores the most remarkable transition in Australian political history: in the people, the politics and the policies - and also exposes the lingering impact of secrets.

    'The election of Kevin Rudd as prime minister signalled a momentous change in Australia - political power moved north for the first time. As he said, "You can take the boy out of Nambour, but you can't take Nambour out of the boy." This edition explains how this happened and what it means for Australia.' (Publisher's blurb)
