What is Australia For?

Julianne Schultz

It is time to revive the debate about national identity. The cliches of old have long exceeded their use-by date. This is a trying time of global transition and uncertainty, for societies and for individuals. Yet it is also a time when Australia has remarkable advantages - advantages it must build on if the nation is to prosper. Instead of seizing the moment, and forging an exciting new future, public discussion is mired in the past. Politics is no longer the art of the possible. Whingeing has replaced can-do. What is Australia for? will sketch out visionary ideas for the future, uncover neglected stories from the past, and provide an exciting forum for new voices to make their case. Contributors include Dennis Altman, Nick Bryant, Peter Mares, Tony Birch, Natasha Cica, Don Watson, Raymond Evans, Cameron Muir, Brendan Gleeson, Anna Haebich and Jorge Sotirios.
