Summary
{u2018}Norman Abjorensen doesn{u2019}t shy from judgement in this meticulously researched, detailed and illuminating book on the last days of our leading politicians. Only one Prime Minister, Robert Menzies, has ever voluntarily departed politics for a graceful retirement, while three died in office; the remaining twenty-three were all forced from office in one way or another. Here, armed with the forensic skill of a surgeon and the insight of an expert observer, Dr Abjorensen picks apart the fatal flaws that contributed to their failure.{u2019} (Nicholas Stuart, author of Rudd{u2019}s Way: November 2007{u2013}June 2010)
