Written by the head of the Australian Workers’ Union, a man accused of removing Kevin Rudd from office and installing Julia Gillard as Prime Minister, this insider's account reveals the astonishing details of the Labor Party’s campaign. With details on a day-to-day basis, this work illustrates how the 2010 Australian federal election campaign had more twists, conspiracies, and betrayals than a ripping political thriller.
