At the 2007 federal election award winning journalist Maxine McKew wrote herself into the political history books by being only the second candidate since Federation to defeat a sitting prime minister in his own seat. Tales from the Political Trenches is the story of McKew’s triumph over John Howard in Bennelong, and of her time as a parliamentary secretary in the tumultuous  Rudd/ Gillard Labor governments. Her insider’s account of how public policy can be subverted by party hucksters is a must read for those interested in how we reclaim our democracy.
