No, Prime Minister by Paul Strangio

Book Description

Leadership has become the principal lingua franca of politics. Prime ministers now occupy the centre of the nation's political universe. But what are the causes and implications of the sharpening of prime ministerial power? Is untrammelled leadership consistent with democracy? And how is it related to the growing incumbency advantages enjoyed by governments? In this important appraisal of recent Australian political life, James Walter and Paul Strangio analyse the performances of five prime ministers (Whitlam, Fraser, Hawke, Keating and Howard) against the background of institutional changes to the political system that have been in train over the past three decades. The authors also look forward, to ask whether a new prime minister, such as Kevin Rudd, would reverse these trends, and to suggest ways to counter the detrimental vogue for leadership-centric politics.

Neither Power Nor Glory by Paul Strangio Neither Power Nor Glory, Paperback (May 2012)

Meticulously researched and elegantly written, Neither Power Nor Glory fills an important gap in Australian political history and our understanding of the Labor Party. It is also a timely antidote to nostalgia about Labor's past. In Victoria at least, that past was anything but golden.
