Diplomatic

In September 2015, Joe Hockey’s promising political career was brought to a dramatic end when Malcolm Turnbull successfully challenged Prime Minister Tony Abbott for the Liberal Leadership. After felling the Abbott/Hockey Government, Turnbull informed Hockey that he would no longer be treasurer of Australia – a deal had been struck with Scott Morrison. Instead, Turnbull offered Hockey a new role: Australia’s Ambassador to the United States.
Traversing the worlds of politics, business and diplomacy, Joe Hockey’s Diplomatic is an insightful, honest and at times hilarious insider’s memoir recounting the former treasurer’s unique diplomatic style. It chronicles the evolution, depth and complexity of the US-Australian relationship, from the final year of the Obama administration, the triumph and chaos of the Trump presidency and then on to the two nations’ shared future under President Joe Biden and beyond.
