Summary
"The book that tells the story of Australia today: how we got here, and where we're going. A blistering expos⥠and manifesto for every Australian. Australia, Davis argues, is built on a dream. A unique democratic experiment, we were once world leaders in developing a uniquely pluralist society. But this, during the Howard years, has become a dream unfulfilled; a dream betrayed. This book will tell the story of how we have gone backwards and betrayed our national ethos, why this has happened, and how to rebuild it. Just as Donald Horne's The Lucky Country provided the definitive snapshot of Australia during the tenure of its longest-running prime ministership, that of Robert Menzies, so this book will provide the definitive snapshot of Australian life during the tenure of its second-longest running prime ministership, that of John Howard."--Provided by publisher
