What's next for the conservative side of politics? Where are new battlelines to be drawn?
Parliamentary pugilist and senior Liberal party figure Tony Abbott offers a lively and frank examination of the way forward for the Liberal party. Here he reveals insider moments and draws lessons from the dying days of the Howard Government, and offers colourful insights about his contemporaries on both sides of politics.
In Battlelines, Abbott looks at the values and instincts that drive the Liberal Party and maps in detail key policy directions that the party might adopt. This is also the often-humorous story of his own political development. How a would-be priest fathered an unknown son; the truth about politicians' lives; his "days from hell"; and his personal dispatches from the halls of power.
Battlelines outlines a state of play for the Liberal Party, cementing Tony Abbott's reputation as one of the firmament's most interesting thinkers.
