Veteran political journalist Peter Kennedy spent more than 40 years observing 11 Premiers of Western Australia - across an extraordinary period of change in Western Australia's history, from 1970 to 2013. His insider's accounts have revealed first-hand the issues linked with the jailing of two Premiers and a deputy Premier, the ruthless removal of a Premier mid-term, the election of the nation's first female Premier, and the sensational 'WA Inc.' Royal Commission. With the insightful commentary he is known for, Kennedy notes how the changes in the 11 Premiers reflected the development of the state, and reveals the personal maneuverings linked with a number of key decisions. Speaking to former Premiers, as well as former Prime Ministers and other national figures of Australia, the result is this book with its series of revelations that shed new light on the politics and politicians of the most dynamic period of Western Australia's colorful history. pp. 326.
