            "The All Blacks had last won the Rugby World Cup in 1987, when Prime Minister David Lange and the Labour team likewise scored a convincing victory. In 2011, New Zealand again hosted the Rugby World Cup, and once again two national teams emerged triumphant - the All Blacks, led by... captain Richie McCaw, and the National Party, led by Prime Minister John Key. This book tells the story of this 2011 election, set against the backdrop of a country caught up in rugby heroics and the aftermath of several life-changing natural disasters. It's the story of an odd campaign - of leaders' debates where the most memorable line, 'show me the money!', comes from a Hollywood movie; and of a meeting for a 'cup of tea', intended to promote the return to Parliament of one party, ACT, which ends up igniting the re-entry to Parliament of another, New Zealand First. It's the story of an election that winds up toppling two party leaders (Labour's Phil Goff and ACT's Don Brash) and ends, at last, the three-year political honeymoon of a third, John Key, even as he wins another term. Kicking the Tyres includes among its authors some of the winners of the 2011 election - New Zealand First's Winston Peters; the Greens' Metiria Turei; National's Steven Joyce; United Future's Peter Dunne; and the Greens' Mojo Mathers. What went wrong is the subject of chapters written by participants from other parties, including Labour's Grant Robertson and high-ranking candidates from the Maori Party, Mana and ACT. Kicking the Tyres views the campaign and the election from a variety of angles and perspectives. New Zealand's wittiest political commentator, Jane Clifton, writes about 'the worm' and other inanities of 2011. Jon Johansson and Colin James discuss John Key's leadership and the impact of the Pike River mine disaster and the Christchurch earthquakes on the government and the country. Other contributors examine the images and 'brands' of New Zealand's political parties and their leaders; the role of Fac

            Dead Right: How Neoliberalism Ate Itself and What Comes Next

            This updated and expanded edition of Richard Denniss?s bestselling Quarterly Essay gives a template for understanding the next federal election; discusses how and why the right of politics has continued to splinter; focuses on why energy and climate policy is such a problem for c...onservative politics; and looks in more detail at what could come after neoliberalism. How did the banks run wild for so long? Why are so many aged-care residents malnourished? And when did arms manufacturers start sponsoring the Australian War Memorial? In Dead Right, Richard Denniss explores what neoliberalism has done to Australia. For decades, we have been led to believe that the private sector does everything better, that governments can?t afford to provide the high-quality services they once did, but that security and prosperity for all are just around the corner. In fact, Australians are now less equal, millions of workers have no sick leave or paid holidays, and housing is unaffordable for many. Deregulation, privatisation and trickle-down economics have, we are told, delivered us twenty-seven years of growth ... but to what end? Denniss looks at ways to renew our democracy and discusses everything from the fragmenting Coalition to an idea of the national interest that goes beyond economics. This is a sparkling book of ideas, the perfect scene-setter for the upcoming federal election.
