eadership in Turbulent Times
Kevin Rudd is Australia's 26th prime minister. In fact, he is one of the few Australians to have served twice as his country's prime minister. He was also Australia's foreign minister between 2010 and 2012. In his new book, The PM Years, Rudd recounts his early triumphs and challenges in the business of government. The book deals with Rudd's relationship with the Bush and Obama administrations during the Global Financial Crisis, a challenging relationship with China, as well as his global activism on climate change. A controversial figure in Australian domestic politics, Rudd began his prime ministership by delivering a national apology to Aboriginal Australians, as well as initiating a range of far-reaching reforms in Australian health and education policy. He also introduced Australia's first paid parental leave scheme. But beyond the policy challenges he tackled, Rudd takes us into cabinet, the prime minister's office, and the back-corridor conversations that reshaped the country.
