Backstage Politics PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Backstage Politics free pdf Phillip Adams has been close to governments of various persuasions for over fifty years. Having been a confidant - or a fierce opponent - of many of Australia's most influential figures over that time, he has built up an unparalleled collection of anecdotes about our political and cultural leaders. Backstage Politics is also something of a personal memoir, tracing Adams' life in politics, media and the arts over the years. To make the collection complete, he even invited the pollies themselves to submit their stories, the most enthusiastic respondent - not surprisingly - being Senator Barnaby Joyce. The biggest characters of public life emerge afresh in these pages. From Menzies to Rudd - via Gorton, Whitlam, Fraser, Hawke, Keating, Hanson, Howard et al - Backstage Politics takes us on a funny, insightful and revealing journey through the Australian political landscape.

About Phillip Adams

It's nudging sixty years since Phillip Adams' byline first appeared in an Australian newspaper. As an atheist and contrarian, he's been annoying people ever since. Gough Whitlam calls him 'Australia's most perceptive social critic'. As well as lots of books and TV series, Adams' dozen feature films include The Adventures of Barry McKenzie and Don's Party. He has chaired many government bodies, won lots of awards, attracted many enemies and remains hyperactive.
