As Delivered: The Defining Speeches

RRP  $43.95 $39.75
This year we turn our attention to Tony Abbott's brief but productive period as Prime Minister. The influences of Menzies and Howardare clear, but so too is Abbott's literary skill, honed as a journalist. Like Menzies and Howard, Abbott achieved the remarkable task of leading his party out of opposition. These speeches reveal he also had a strong plan for government, accomplishing the tasks he had laid before the electorate while developing further plans for reform of the federation, taxation, welfare, indigenous affairs, health funding and more. This volume, like the others in the series, is, if you like, a selfportrait. Abbott: As Delivered is an intimate picture of politician who thought deeply about the purpose of government and its role in creating a more prosperous and just society not with its own energy but by releasing the potential of its people. We present it as a template for others who aspire to serve.
