Written by Lindsay Tanner--whose parliamentary career spans 18 years, culminating in his position as the minister for finance and deregulation in the Rudd-Gillard governments--this edited selection of his press articles, speeches, and occasional essays discusses a range of major subjects. From 1990 to 2012, this book delves into Labor's problems and prospects; globalization and its discontents; facing up to important values; the need for compassion; and lessons from Tanner's own life. Whether the subject matter be economic, political, or personal, this account demonstrates what Australia lost when Tanner departed from national politics.
