John Howard's autobiography, Lazarus Rising, is the biggest-selling political memoir Australia has seen. In it he talks about his love for his family, his rollercoaster ride to the Lodge and how - as prime minister - he responded to issues like climate change and the war on terrorism. Drawing on his deep interest in history, he paints a fascinating picture of a changing Australia.
In this updated and revised edition, he will analyse the twists and turns of the 2013 election and share his thoughts on the outcome. From the future prospects of key policy issues to the performance of key players like Kevin Rudd and Malcolm Turnbull, Howard pulls no punches. No stranger to power struggles himself, he is uniquely qualified to decode Tony Abbott's campaign strategies and unpick the tensions coursing through the Labor party.
Essential reading for all followers of politics.
