Bridget Williams Books

What does government look like from the ninth floor of the Beehive? The 9th Floor collects together interviews with five former Prime Ministers of New Zealand: Geoffrey Palmer, Mike Moore, Jim Bolger, Jenny Shipley and Helen Clark.

Based on the acclaimed Radio New Zealand podcast and introduced by journalists Guyon Espiner and Tim Watkin, these interviews give an insight into the workings of government from five people who have lived it. Rogernomics, the Mother of all Budgets, the nuclear free policy and the fight to stay in power – The 9th Floor provides a unique view on the decisions that have shaped New Zealand.
