Description - Liberals and Power by Peter Van Onselen

With November 2007's federal election loss, and with Labor running all state and territory governments, the Liberal Party has been forced to re-think its raison d'etre. The transition from John Howard to Brendan Nelson's leadership has been anything but smooth, with much destabilising work happening from within the Party.""Liberals and Power"" brings together respected commentators and politicians such as Gerard Henderson, Robert Manne, Tony Abbott, Wayne Errington and George Brandis who examine, among other issues, the contemporary debate over liberalism, the Howard legacy, and the battle for the heart and soul of Australia.Liberal leader Brendan Nelson and Shadow Treasurer Malcolm Turnbull contribute chapters on their vision for Australia, and their plan to bring the Liberals back from the wilderness. ""Liberals and Power"" is an invaluable analysis of the challenges, pitfalls and opportunities that lie ahead for the Liberal Party.
