Abstract:

"In 1996, when John Howard wrested the prime ministership from Paul Keating, many people wrote off his election win as an aberration. More than ten years later, he is on the cusp of leading the Liberal Party into another election." "John Winston Howard is a frank and engrossing portrait of the Prime Minister. For the first time ever, in interviews conducted by Wayne Errington and Peter van Onselen with Howard's family, friends, political supporters and detractors, we get a rare insight into the man and the government he runs. The result is a portrait of how Team Howard operates, and why it has been so successful."

"Errington and van Onselen contend that Howard is the first professional politician the country has seen, and assess the impact he has made on modern politics, government and the country." "John Winston Howard is a revealing study of the nature of modern politics. Crucially, it offers an insightful understanding of the John Howard who lies - and is mostly missed - between the public vitriol and the ungainly praise that passes as analysis."--Jacket.
