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.
