An excellent read outlining the lead up to Keating's sweeping economic reforms and the position Australia finds itself in now, after Howard and Costello's premature termination of the plan he had in place. H & C aren't entirely to blame, the ALP was also complicit in its death.

Highly recommended if you want an understanding of how Australia was pulled out of irrelevance to become a player in the international economy.
