Arguing that Paul Keating and John Howard are the twin architects of a political, economic, and social revolution, this investigation tells the story of how these two politicians carried Australia through a period of trauma and on to an era of unprecedented affluence. Between them, they altered the nation’s body-clock, dominating 30 years of power as both treasurers and prime ministers. Based on exclusive interviews with both Keating and Howard, this is a brilliant, nonpartisan analysis of the forces that shape Australia today. This substantially revised and updated edition also discusses the termination of the Keating–Howard era.
