What's next for the conservative side of politics? Where are new battlelines to be drawn?
Senior Liberal Party figure and parliamentary pugilist Tony Abbott offers a frank analysis of the way forward for the Liberal Party. Here he draws lessons from the dying days of the Howard Government, and gives his views on his contemporaries, including Kevin Rudd, Peter Costello, Julia Gillard and Malcolm Turnbull.
In Battlelines, Abbott looks at the values and instincts that drive the Liberal Party and proposes policy that the party should adopt.
This is the often humorous story of his own political development. He describes the truth about politicians lives; his days from hell; insider moments from the halls of power; and how a would-be priest believed he had fathered an unknown son.
Battlelines outlines a state of play for the Liberal Party, cementing Tony Abbott's reputation as one of the Liberal Party's most interesting thinkers and fearless advocates.
Tony Abbott is the current Opposition Leader for the Liberal Party of Australia.
