A Matter Of Opinion, Alan Ramsey
1 Alan Ramsey A Matter Of Opinion
A&U 237141 Australia 2009 First Edition 1742371582 / 9781742371580 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Ward O'Neill For more than two decades, from mid-1987 to the end of 2008, no one had greater access to our national parliament and its politicians than Alan Ramsey. Informed, insightful and unafraid, his Wednesday and Saturday columns in The Sydney Morning Herald were always essential reading for many thousands of Australians.Here are 150 of his unflinching views of key political events of that era, among them: the often turbulent Hawke/Keating years, the 1990 recession 'we had to have', Labor's stunning dumping of Bob Hawke in December 1991 after he had led his party to four successive election victories in eight years, the Howard Government's slavish subservience to the Bush White House, the insidious channeling of Hansonism, John Howard's 'never ever' GST, the invasion of Iraq, the disintegration of the Democrats as a political force after the 1997 defection to Labor of its leader, Cheryl Kernot, the manipulation by both sides of politics of the 2001 children overboard incident, and the scandal of the Governor-General who ultimately resigned after the cover-up by the Anglican Church in Queensland of serial child abuse in church schools.Yet Ramsey's keen eye often observed with affection the values and behavior of others in national life, and he was as ready to give credit as he was to lay into the humbug, pomposity and deceit of political, personal and sectional self-interest.Some 'matters of opinion' of Alan Ramsey'There is no one now, and no one coming along, who can write like this.'David Marr'I'll miss his profound dislike of hypocrisy and his instinct for plain speaking.'Kerry O'Brien'A lion of a journalist in every way.'Michelle Grattan'In an arena of journalism where sameness is a vice, Ramsey is entirely his own man.'Les Carlyon'For years his column has been an essential, often enjoyable, frequently uncomfortable, part of my Saturday morning regime.'Kevin Rudd'He always added to my Saturday morning enjoyment.'Peter Costello'A must read.'Bob Brown'Grumpy old bastard. Seriously unique.'Bill HeffernanCover photograph: Andrew TaylorCover design: Blue Cork 340 pages. Light foxing to outer page edges. Slight crease on front cover. Black and white illustrations.

Allen & Unwin 237575 Australia 1996 Second Edition 1864481609 / 9781864481600 Softcover Very Good Condition In an era of cut-backs, privatisations, corporatisations and out-sourcing, the challenges and responsibilities of a manager in the public sector have never been greater.

Unfinished Business: Paul Keating's Interrupted Revolution, David Love
12 David Love Unfinished Business: Paul Keating's Interrupted Revolution
Scribe 235211 Melbourne 2008 1921372192 / 9781921372193 Softcover Very Good Condition In the early 1980s, Paul Keating set out to reinvent the Australian economy. He floated the Australian dollar, liberated banking and finance from its regulatory shackles, and - most significantly - introduced a universal superannuation scheme. The results were astounding growth in the value of our national economy and in the personal wealth of ordinary Australians. Keating's revolution was based on his insight that, by encouraging all of us to save for retirement, a huge pool of investment capital would be created that would help enrich the nation. But the fulfilment of his vision was denied by his political opponents after the Australian people voted Keating out in 1996. In this book, David Love, a veteran economic and financial observer, explores the story of Keating's revolution - a story that has never before been fully told - and sounds a timely warning that the failure to finish the job Keating started has left our new-found prosperity vulnerable, particularly in the current climate of international economic uncertainty. The revolution, it turns out, is at least as relevant to the future as it has been to the past 265 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Recollections Of A Bleeding Heart: A Portrait of Paul Keating PM, Don Watson
13 Don Watson Recollections Of A Bleeding Heart: A Portrait of Paul Keating PM
A Knopf Book 241998 USA 2002 First Edition 0091835178 / 9780091835170 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good BLEEDING HEART: noun, derisory. One of liberal or social democratic views. One who believes there is such a thing as a society. Not an economic rationalist, point head or econocrat. 'There are no bigger dreamers than in our office. It's a mixture of econocrats and bleeding hearts.' PM PAUL KEATING, MARCH 1993 If he had never become Prime Minister Paul Keating's place in Australian history would still have been assured. He was the Treasurer who deregulated the economy; the weaver of Labor's modern story; its heavy weapon in the parliament. He was also the great enigma - a self-educated boy from Sydney's working class and a defining element of the head-kicking Labor right who loved Paris, Mahler and Second Empire clocks. Paul Keating did become Prime Minister. In December 1991 he wrested it from Bob Hawke and the bruises from that struggle were part of the baggage he brought to the job: the other parts included the worst recession in 60 years and an electorate determined to make him pay for it. Keating defied the odds and won the 1993 election, and in his four years as Prime Minister set Australia on a new course - towards engagement with Asia, a republic, reconciliation, a social democracy built on a modern export-based economy and sophisticated public systems of education and training, health and social security. Widely regarded as a quintessential economic rationalist, Keating's record clearly shows that his vision was infinitely broader and more complex. Don Watson was employed as Keating's speechwriter. Though a 'bleeding heart' liberal trained in history rather than economics, he became an advisor and friend to Keating. RECOLLECTIONS OF A BLEEDING HEART - based on notes Watson kept through the four turbulent and exhausting years of Keating's Prime Ministership - is a frank, sympathetic and engrossing portrait of this brilliant and perplexing man, and a unique reflection on modern politics.
