Author(s): Kerry-Anne Walsh
This is the story of one of the most extraordinary episodes in recent Australian political history, of how a powerful media pack, a vicious commentariat and some of those within her own party contrived to bring down Australia's first woman prime minister.
Kerry-Anne Walsh worked for 25 years in the Canberra press gallery, as chief political correspondent for publications such as the Daily Telegraph, the Bulletin magazine and the Sun Herald. She also wrote for a string of international publications, and worked in both radio and TV. She is a regular political commentator on Sky News, Radio New Zealand and the ABC.
