SYNOPSIS: Exploring the rise of the ambitious Australian Labor Party (ALP) leader, this biography details the events that led to Kevin Rudd winning the 2007 general election. After a period of prolonged instability and internal strife within the federal ALP, Rudd emerged to establish himself as a popular leader who unified his party and terminated John Howard's ascendancy. Based on extensive interviews with the main participants, this account traces his life from a childhood on a Queensland dairy farm and the tragic death of his father to his university years, diplomatic service, political apprenticeship, and ultimate emergence as Labor leader. Comprehensive and spin-free, this examination clearly depicts the influences behind one key political player's vision for Australia's future. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Political; ISBN: .
