Warriors, a riveting and comprehensive dissection of what went wrong with the Abbott government, will be published in early 2016.
Warriors reveals the disastrous consequences of power abused, and the broken people left in its wake.
From the moment the Abbott government took office, the prime minister and his staff ruthlessly controlled ministers, backbenchers, the public service and the media. But the centralised decision-making that had been so effective in opposition turned out to be a disaster in government. Warriors is the first draft of history—the inside story of the Abbott government, told in stunning, revelatory detail.
Aaron Patrick is the deputy editor of the Australian Financial Review. His previous book, Downfall: How the Labor Party Ripped Itself Apart, was a national bestseller.
Warriors (9781863958097, RRP $29.99) will be released on Monday 1 February 2016. Orders can be placed with United Book Distributors on firstname.lastname@example.org or 1800 33 88 36.
