John Howard is the second longest serving prime minister in Australia's history. His tenure lasted almost 12 years. His autobiography is essential reading for those interested in contemporary politics, in Australian history or the craft of practical politics. John Howard spent decades under media scrutiny, and while his credentials as a political leader, devoted family man and sports tragic are beyond dispute, in this autobiography he reveals much more about himself.

In Lazarus Rising, Howard traces his personal and political journey, from childhood in the post-World War II era through to the present day, painting a fascinating picture of a changing Australia. Lazarus Rising is history seen through the eyes of the ultimate insider; an account of a 30-year political career. No prime minister of modern times has reshaped Australia and its place in the world as forcefully as John Howard. As part of his reform agenda he privatized Telstra, dismantled excessive union power and compulsory trade union membership, instituted the unpopular Goods and Services Tax, and established the 'work for the dole' scheme.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Brian | 3/29/2013

    " While detailed and intense, Lazarus rising lacks one element that we expect from a political memoir, candid and frank which is why I give it 4 out of 5, instead of 5 out of 5. "

    " John's point of view and his story good reading as being the same age as John Howard I remember all the plays in politics over the years. "

    " A fascinating read. I'm by no means a fan of Johnny's, I wanted to read this book to understand his perspective on political and social issues. I also wanted insight into his relationships with his cohorts and key international and australian players. It delivered. "
