4. Quarterly Essay 46 Great Expectations Government, Entitlement and an Angry Nation (Large Print 16pt) - Laura Tingle

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Why are Australians are so disenchanted and angry when it comes to politics? Given how well the country is going, by all rights we should be delighted with our political leadership. And yet we're not. In Quarterly Essay 46, Laura Tingle argues that something deep in the culture now amplifies antagonism and complaint. By turns we rail at the prime minister, whinge about minority government, and act as if the mining and carbon taxes will be the end of the world. When we were prosperous in times past, we did things like form a federation. What has changed? What would a different politics look like? And, Tingle asks, can a leader surf the wave of anger all the way to power?

9. Quarterly Essay 45 Us and Them On the Importance of Animals (Large Print 16pt) - Anna Krien

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

For the first time in history, humans sit unchallenged at the top of the food chain. As wilderness loses out to urban sprawl and a vast wave of extinctions gathers force, how has our relationship to animals changed? In this dazzling piece of reportage, Anna Krien investigates the contemporary animal kingdom and our place in it. From pets to food, from wildness to science experiments, Krien also reveals how animals are faring in this new world order. Examples range from the joyful to the deeply unsettling. As Krien delves deeper, she finds that animals can trigger primal emotions in us, which we are often not willing to acknowledge. Us and Them is a clear - eyed look at how we do - and should - treat animals, and an original look at every - thing from animal lawyers to Indonesian abattoirs. It is also a meditation on humanness and animalness, sameness and otherness, that sheds new light on our contemporary obsession with animals.

10. Quarterly Essay What's Right? the Future of Conservatism in Australia - Waleed Aly

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Where did the Right go wrong? With the departure of George W. Bush and John Howard, conservative parties in the US and Australia entered a period of turmoil. Foreign affairs, economics, the environment - all were issues to be avoided. Most profoundly, conservatives no longer seemed to have a compelling vision of the future - and arguably still don't. How did the Right end up in this state? How might conservatism renew itself?In this illuminating essay, Waleed Aly begins by unravelling the terms "Right" and "Left," arguing that these have become meaningless. He contends that conservative parties have backed themselves into a corner by embracing free-market extremism, and that an illiberal social politics - including prescribing who or what is Australian - is not the answer, electorally tempting though it may be.Aly discusses what a better conservatism might look like. He predicts that the key issues of the day, such as climate change and the financial crisis, mean a reactionary brand of politics is unlikely to work because public opinion is swiftly leaving it behind. He draws on the work of conservative thinkers, past and present, to sketch the kind of conservatism that seems scarce in Australia, but which would be a welcome presence here. This is a supple, clear and original argument for political change.

15. QE53 That Sinking Feeling: Asylum Seekers and the Search for the Indonesian Solution (Large Print 16pt) - Paul Toohey

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In the first Quarterly Essay of 2014, Paul Toohey searches for the solution our politicians have been unwilling or unable to find, and asks whether, amid the diplomatic turmoil, we've now missed our chance. Tony Abbott promised to stop the boats. With the help of Kevin Rudd's ''PNG solution'', he has. But at what cost? Visiting the Indonesian departure points, Toohey tells the dramatic stories of asylum seekers heading from Java to Australia, investigates people - smuggling and witnesses the aftermath of a sinking at sea. He examines the individual policies and outcomes of the Howard, Rudd, Gillard and now Abbott governments. He also interrogates Australian attitudes to boat people, and what politicians have made of these. This engaging, powerful essay provides the untold personal stories of those waiting to make the dangerous journey, and the long view of this fraught issue. That Sinking Feeling is an unflinching look at people at their worst and best - and most ruthless and most vulnerable - by one of Australia's finest reporters. ''Any hope for a genuine regional solution rested with Indonesia, the final stepping stone to Australia ... Why did neither Howard, in his better times with Indonesia, or Labor, from 2007, seek a one - on - one solution with Indonesia? 'The Indonesian Solution.' Those words would have been the most convincing political statement any Australian government could ever deliver to Australian voters on asylum seekers.'' - Paul Toohey, That Sinking Feeling

17. Quarterly Essay 48 After the Future Australia's New Extinction Crisis (Large Print 16pt) - Tim Flannery

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Australia is home to many animals and plants found nowhere else on earth, making Australians caretakers of a unique heritage in a land that tolerates few mistakes. Yet, in After the Future, Tim Flannery shows that this country is now on the brink of a new wave of extinctions, which threatens to leave our national parks as ''marsupial ghost towns.'' Why are species becoming extinct despite the tens of millions of dollars being spent to protect nature? And what more should be done? In this passionate and illuminating essay, Flannery tells the story of the human impact on the continent. He revisits his Future Eaters hypothesis, discussing how firestick farming helped to shape the ecology and preserve native fauna. He looks at the way recent governments, in tandem with an indifferent populace and a rabid libertarian right, have let environmental knowledge and commitments erode. Finally, he describes new approaches to wildlife conservation and argues that Australia must take the lead on these. This is an essay that rings the alarm on behalf of the natural world, and asks us to think again about protection of its irreplaceable riches. ''Such is the depth of public ignorance about Australia's extinction crisis that most people are unaware that it is occurring, while those who do know of it commonly believe that our national parks and reserves are safe places for threatened species. In fact the second extinction wave is now in full swing, and it's emptying our national parks and wildlife reserves as ruthlessly as other landscapes.'' - Tim Flannery, After the Future
