Praise for Inside the Greens

‘A monumental effort ... Inside the Greens manages to be not just a fine resource on a single party, but of the times that produced them.’ —Crikey

‘Meticulously researched and informed by impeccable sources both within and outside the party ... Policies are scrutinised, personalities dissected and challenges examined with detail and authority ... As both major parties lurch to the right this is a timely review of the third force in our domestic political landscape.’ —CityHub

‘A much-needed work: comprehensive, detailed and impressively sourced.’ —Inside Story

‘A fair-minded history ... [Manning] makes a persuasive case for the party’s achievements. Yet he is not blind to its failure to achieve the cleaner politics it preaches ... His tacit agenda is to teach us, and to remind the party, of what is to be valued in, and what needs to be improved by, the Greens.’ —Australian Book Review
