Melbourne: Melbourne University Press (MUP). 249 pp. Paperback octavo, good plus condition, front cover creased, front flyleaf little foxed, minor edgewear, otherwise internally excellent. Barrie Cassidy picked a hell of an election to cover: changes of leaders of both Liberal and Labor Party, Australia's first woman Prime Minister, a hung parliament, and a country not knowing who its Prime Minister was for nearly three weeks. Malcolm Turnbull's manic desire to get his own way in the party, and because he simply stopped listening, led to his demise. Kevin Rudd stole the party through his authoritarian approach to government and a cabinet that felt alienated from the job of governing. In both cases, the members of their respective parties came at the party thieves to reclaim what was rightfully theirs, and set the stage for the ascension of Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard. And all that, before we even get to the 2010 election campaign. ISBN: 9780522857801. Our Book No: 16933. $12 AUD.

Why does Australia, a nation with one of the world's best economies, have such a dim view of its own performance?

Meanwhile, ex-cop and bagman Jack Herbert collects the payments and efficiently takes police graft to a whole new level. The Joke heralds an era of hard drugs, illegal gambling and prostitution, and leave in its wake a string of unsolved murders and a trail of dirty money.

In 2011, history was made and the future broken. One of our most incisive and eloquent observers, Bob Ellis has reviewed the occurrences of 2011 and found it to be a year as important as 1848. He and his collaborators refresh and repopulate our memories with enormous events already forgotten, revealing their coherence and resonance. From the Arab Spring to the London riots and Occupy Wall Street, from the Christchurch earthquake and the Fukushima meltdown to the possible discovery of the Higgs God particle, from the shooting of US Senator Gabby Giffords to her vote on the bill that saved America's economy, from Assange fighting extradition to the Murdoch empire on trial, from the last hours of Kim Jong - il and Vaclav Havel to the Breivik massacre in Norway and the executions of Gaddafi and bin Laden - the year 2011 was portentously charged. The shockwaves from these events continue to reverberate through the corridors of power. ISBN: 9780670077410. Our Book No: 16363. $30 AUD.

Melbourne: Melbourne University Press (MUP). 234 pp. Paperback octavo, as new condition. Tony Abbott came to the Australian prime ministership lauded as the most effective opposition leader since Whitlam. Why then did he fail to succeed in the job to which he had aspired for decades? Frontbenchers leaked about cabinet processes to the media, while backbenchers complained about the lack of access to their leader. Abbott's long apprenticeship in religion, journalism and political life prepared him for neither the mundane business of managing people, nor the commanding heights of national leadership. Public goodwill evaporated after a tough first budget. Inside the Liberal Party, individual ambitions and a succession of poor polls fuelled increasing concern that the next election was unwinnable. Chronicles the paradox of the Abbott prime ministership: steadfast loyalty when pragmatism was required; social values at odds with community attitudes; and stubbornness when tactics and strategy were essential. All would bring him undone. ISBN: 9780522869712. Our Book No: 16699. $20 AUD.

When the results of the 2010 federal election became known, no party had a majority in the House of Representatives. It was the first hung parliament for 40 years. So, both the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, and the Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, set about wooing the Independents - including Rob Oakeshott and Tony Windsor. In the end, Julia Gillard stitched together an agreement to form government.

He remembers moments of celebration and incidents of perfidy. But above all, we get to meet close up and personal the man who played such an important role in the 43rd Australian parliament.

It was a decision that the Fitzgerald Inquiry later vindicated. Whitrod rose through the ranks from police cadets in Adelaide to command not only the Queensland police but also the Commonwealth and Papua New Guinea forces as well. In wartime, he had trained and flown as a navigator with the RAF in Europe and the Middle East. After the war, he helped to found ASIO, operating both in the field and from behind a desk.
