Formatted Abstract/Summary
This book focuses on the period of political turmoil in Queensland, Australia, which started with the Fitzgerald Inquiry in 1987 and concluded with the merger of the two major non-Labor parties. It traverses a vital period in non-Labor politics in Queensland, a time when the National and Liberal Parties were often at loggerheads with each other, after a valiant attempt by National Party Premier Michael Ahern to clean up a tainted government. Anyone seeking to understand the origins of the amalgamated Liberal National Party, the LNP, and to understand its decisive victory in the 2012 Queensland State election, will find this book of great interest.
