The Costello Memoirs

Peter Coleman, Peter Costello
The Costello Memoirs is a frank and fearless look inside the engine-room of the Liberal Party and the Howard Government.
In a political career spanning more than eighteen years, Peter Costello, Australia's longest serving Treasurer, steered the Government through some of its greatest economic and political challenges, paying off Government debt, introducing the GST and fighting five elections. The Costello Memoirs charts the victories and defeats in one man's very public life.
