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 conspired to bring down Australia's first woman prime minister.
Kerry-Anne Walsh worked for 25 years in the federal parliamentary 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.
