Summary
The nature of political leadership in Australia has undergone enormous change in recent decades. State and federal leaders now have more power and usually stay in government for longer periods. In this important reappraisal of recent Australian political life, Paul Strangio and James Walter trace the forces that have driven this trend by using case studies of five prime ministers (Whitlam, Fraser, Hawke, Keating and Howard) and assessing the leadership style of a potential prime minister, Kevin Rudd. The authors argue that good democratic leadership requires robust institutions, including a fearless public service, a strong Opposition and alternative policy advice
