Mark Latham's passionate attack in "The Latham Diaries" on many aspects of the Australian Labor Party, especially what he called its 'poisonous and opportunistic culture', generated fierce debate, both outside and inside the Party. Nevertheless, Labor holds power in eight of Australia's nine governments. Only the Commonwealth, the most important of all, is out of reach. Is Australia facing a permanent political realignment in which incumbent governments face weak Oppositions, offering no real alternative at elections? Twelve leading politicians and commentators drawn from across the Party's spectrum, examine post-Latham Labor - analysing its problems and proposing a vision for victory in the 2007 federal election. Many believe the Party can be reformed and democratised, and its message made compelling once again. This book is a valuable contribution to reviving Australian political debate and the robustness of our democracy.
