ABSTRACT
The article discusses the modern politics of Australia which is described as a politico-moral wasteland. It states that the country is suffering from political cynicism while making democracy possible which simultaneously bastardized the political process. On the other hand, Tony Abbott, an Australian politician, is determined to restore charity, belief and courage to their rightful place with his new book "Battlelines."
