The Short and Excruciatingly Embarrassing Reign of Captain Abbott, Andrew P. Street
2 Andrew P. Street The Short and Excruciatingly Embarrassing Reign of Captain Abbott
A&U 233821 Australia 2015 1760290548 / 9781760290542 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition In August 2013, Australia welcomed Tony Abbott as its new prime minister. This promised to be a marriage between responsible government and a nation tired of the endless drama of the Gillard-Rudd years. But then... Well...Fairfax columnist Andrew P Street details the litany of gaffes, blunders and questionable captain's calls that characterised the subsequent reign of the Abbott government, following the trail from bold promises to questionable realities, unlikely recoveries to inexplicable own goals and Malcolm Turnbull's assurances of support to the day he pushed the Captain off his bike once and for all. And all this comes with a colourful cast of supporting characters and dangerous loons that only a nation unfamiliar with the concept of below-the-line voting could elect. Here is a unique take on politics Australian style.If Game of Thrones was a deeply irreverent book about politics, then the TV series would probably not rate nearly as well. It would, however, look something like this. 293 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Suffrage to Sufferance: A Hundred Years of Women in Politics, Janine Haines
16 Janine Haines Suffrage to Sufferance: A Hundred Years of Women in Politics
Allen & Unwin 227494 Australia 1992 1863733655 / 9781863733656 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket It is almost 100 years since women were given the right to vote in New Zealand and, unintentionally, the right to sit in parliament in South Australia. This book covers all this period to the present. It highlights the accounts of women - some well-known but many unknown - without whose bravery, determination and belief in the rights of women, it would still not be possible for women to own property, have custody of their children, be paid the same as men for doing the same work, be allowed to stay in the work-force after marriage, or be entitled to say "no" to sex once married. This book aims to show how recent the struggle for women's rights has been, how hard it was to achieve even small gains - like the right to vote, make a will or get a divorce - and to remind readers that, with only 7% of MPs in English-speaking parliaments being women, there is still a lot more to achieve. 210 pages.

The Stalking of Julia Gillard, Kerry-Anne Walsh
19 Kerry-Anne Walsh The Stalking of Julia Gillard
A&U 233877 Australia 2014 1760110868 / 9781760110864 Softcover Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket 'Don't write crap. Can't be that hard. And when you have written complete crap, then I think you should correct it.' Julia GillardWhen Julia Gillard took the reins of the Australian Labor Party on 24 June 2010 she did so with the goodwill of most of her party and a fawning Canberra press gallery. But when she announced in February 2011 that her government would introduce a carbon pricing scheme, Kevin Rudd and his small team of malcontents were already in lock-step with key Canberra and interstate journalists in a drive to push her out of the prime ministerial chair.Never has a prime minister been so assiduously stalked. Cast as a political liar and policy charlatan, Julia Gillard was also mercilessly and relentlessly lampooned for her hair, clothes, accent, her arse, even the way she walks and talks.This is the story about one of the most extraordinary episodes in recent Australian political history. It focuses on Team Rudd and the media's treatment of its slow-death campaign of destabilisation, with its disastrous effect on Gillard and the government's functioning. It is about a politician who was never given a fair go; not in the media, not by Rudd, not by some in her own caucus 305 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Cambridge University Press 230824 Australia 1996 0521576180 / 9780521576185 Softcover Very Good Condition This first comprehensive history of republican thought and activity in Australia traces debate around an Australian republic from 1788 to the present. It explains the pivotal role played by republican philosophies, both before and after federation, and illustrates the striking similarities between the arguments of both republicans and monarchists in the 1990s and those that existed 150 years ago. Essential reading for all those with an interest in political and intellectual history. It fills a large gap in Australian history and will become the essential work on Australian republicanism. 334 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
