This is an auction for ABSOLUTE POWER: THE HELEN CLARK YEARS by Ian Wishart.

From the dust jacket:

"ABSOLUTE POWER is one book you simply can't afford to miss. Be among the first to know. What you are about to read will go further than anyone has gone before - digging up a Prime Minister you didn't even know existed. The Helen Clark we see today is a carefully manufactured, airbrushed political brand. She's also New Zealand's most powerful politician, ever. ABSOLUTE POWER strips away the facade to find what makes the real Helen Clark tick, and explores the track record of a government that boasted it would bring a new age of "frugality and integrity", and an end to "cronyism, sleaze and dishonesty". ABSOLUTE POWER is not just about what happened publicly and what played out on the news each night. It is much more about what was going on behind the scenes - the power plays, the dirty tricks, the Machiavellian maneuvers. The bits the daily media missed. Lord Acton wrote that absolute power corrupts absolutely, and that the great "are almost always bad". Is Helen Clark an exception to that rule? Judge for yourself in this decade's most controversial political book."
