Troy Bramston

Troy Bramston is a senior writer with The Australian newspaper and a contributor to Sky News.

He has worked as a policy and political adviser in government, opposition and the private sector. He is a former principal speechwriter for Kevin Rudd and an adviser to the Rudd government.

Troy is the author of Rudd, Gillard and Beyond (Penguin, 2014). Crikey said: ‘This is his sixth book about the Labor Party, and he brings the talents of a party historian and a professional writer to a compelling narrative.’ He is also the author of Looking for the Light on the Hill: Modern Labor’s Challenges (Scribe, 2011). The Courier-Mail said: ‘Troy Bramston’s book is a stand-out. His elegant prose and bold criticisms make it hard to put down.’

He is co-editor of The Hawke Government: A Critical Retrospective (Pluto Press, 2003), editor of The Wran Era (The Federation Press, 2006) and editor of For the True Believers: Great Labor Speeches That Shaped History (The Federation Press, 2012) which was described by The Australian as ‘a compulsory reference for anyone interested in Australian politics’.
