Kevin Rudd: The Biography/Macklin, Rober/Paper/0670071358/S047-D2
When Kevin Rudd became Labor leader in December 2006, many Australians had never heard of him. A few short months later, his presence has galvanised the Labor party into an effective opposition, and he appears on the brink of becoming the leader of this country.
But who is Kevin Rudd? What is his experience, both political and personal? What sort of man is he? What role does his religion play in his life? How does his wife's multimillion-dollar business influence him? In short, what sort of Prime Minister might he make?
In this first biography of Rudd, author, journalist and former Prime Ministerial press secretary Robert Macklin analyses the public and the private record, including Rudd's time as a diplomat in China and his role in Wayne Goss's Queensland Government. Macklin has conducted extensive exclusive interviews with Rudd's former employers and colleagues to reveal the man away from the spotlight.
