Out of office and all at sea, the federal ALP has spent the past five years facing up to the causes of its electoral failure and the lessons for the future. But despite the soul-searching, it's not clear that Labor has come up with a convincing case for its return to government. - Journalist Brett Evans set out to find what lessons Labor has learned, and how it plans to persuade the Australian electorate of its capacity to face the challenges of a new millennium. - He spoke to the old guard and to a new generation of younger MPs, to party officials and rank and file members. He visited candidates in marginal seats, watched as the party met in the Sydney Town Hall, and attended the ubiquitous ALP book launches. - In this compelling and humorous book Brett Evans presents the results of a year watching Labor finally come to terms with its past and face up to the future. - This is the third in UNSW Press' Reportage series. The series was launched with the publication of Margaret Simons's Fit to Print: Inside the Canberra Press Gallery, which generated wide interest and was short-listed in the NSW Premier's Literary Awards.
