Whose ABC? is Ken Inglis's long-awaited political and cultural history of one of Australia's best-loved institutions. Combining in-depth research, interviews with the key players and a gift for story-telling, it is social history of the highest order.Since 1983, the ABC has seen controversial managing directors - David Hill, Jonathan Shier - come and go. There have been fights over funding - "eight cents a day" - and charges of bias. There have been both programming triumphs - from Bananas in Pyjamas to Kath & Kim - and accusations of cowardice and dumbing down. Whose ABC? deals with all these events and more. It seeks out the truth of events and breaks new ground. The result is an unfailingly readable narrative that will be seen as a classic of Australian historical writing.
