The Lure of Politics

Geoff Gallop’s Government 2001-2006

Lesley van Schoubroeck,

The Lure of Politics: Geoff Gallop’s Government 2001-2006
Geoff Gallop was Premier of Western Australia from 2001 until his early retirement in 2006. During his two terms in office he displayed a rare and particular interest in public administration that influenced his approach to reform. In this book Lesley van Schoubroeck, a seasoned senior bureaucrat, focuses on three high profile issues for which Gallop will be remembered: the government's determination to end logging in old growth forests; its approach to water policy and planning; and its response to a crisis in an Aboriginal community (the Gordon Inquiry). This singular politician fervently believed in 'an effective and well-coordinated public sector to guarantee civilised life', one charged with implementing the government's agenda.
