From the co-writer of ""John Winston Howard"", the definitive biography of the Prime Minister, comes ""After the Election"", which takes us behind the scenes of both parties on the announcement of the election campaign.Peter van Onselen and Phillip Senior have been offered unprecedented access into the Liberal and Labor camps as John Howard and Kevin Rudd prepare to fight the battles of their careers. In one camp is the most experienced politician in the country who has, since the start of 2007, faced some of the toughest opinion polls in his life; in the other is a rookie politician who seems unable to put a foot wrong.Will the combination of a jaded electorate and an 'it's time' mentality translate into success for the ALP on polling day?Whoever wins the election, and in the tradition of Pamela Williams' ""The Victory"", ""After the Election"" will chronicle, analyse and make sense of the result, and its far-reaching implications for the people of Australia.
