Summary
April 1998: "I'm a sheep man in cattle country." The political diaries of one of Australia's most promising national leaders, 'The Latham Diaries' are searingly honest bulletins from the front line of Labor politics. This is a riveting chronicle of life inside politics: the backroom deals, the frontroom conniving, the bitter defeat of idealism and the triumph of opportunism. So why did his career end so abruptly? As his diaries reveal, the rising tide of public cynicism about politics, the cult of celebrity, the dangerous liaison between politics and the media, and the sickness at the heart of the Labor machine all played their part. As did Latham's own errors, as he candidly records in these diaries. Mark Latham has written the story of the ALP and in doing so, he has also written our story as Australian citizens
