Author Talk: How to win an election
With Chris Wallace in conversation with Julianne Schultz

The 2019 Australian election produced a surprise result showing, not for the first time, that every election is there for the winning — including the next one.

In her new book, How to Win an Election, journalist and biographer, Chris Wallace details the ten things a political leader and their party must excel at to maximise the chance of success, and against which they should be accountable between and during elections.

This is not a book designed to change your political opinion. It is a crucial resource for future political campaigns to ensure credibility, competence and accountability. Most of all, it is for party supporters and voters who can cast their vote knowing it has been backed by the best possible efforts to create change.

Chris Wallace is the author of several books including a biography of maverick Australian feminist, Germaine Greer, Untamed Shrew; a biography of John Hewson during his Opposition leadership in the early 1990s, Hewson: A Portrait; an exploration of the 30-year relationship between Don Bradman and his confidante, journalist Rohan Rivett, The Private Don; and on the left-wing Canberra poster collective, Megalo, Megalomania: 33 Years of Posters Made at Megalo Print Studio 1980–2013

Julianne Schultz AM FAHA is professor of media and culture in the Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research. She also chairs The Conversation and is the publisher and founding editor of Griffith Review.
