Product description

It's time for some straight talk about Australia's future. We need a head of state who shares a genuine affinity with our country. True independence does not require us to relinquish affection for the Queen or downplay excitement about a royal birth or wedding. Rather it is a chance for national renewal, and to lend an Australian dignity to the highest office in the land. In short: to decide what kind of country we want to live in. Featuring forewords by Malcolm Turnbull and Wayne Swan, Project Republic unites a range of passionate Australian voices to show why Australia must become a republic - and how we can get there from here. Contributors include Henry Reynolds, Thomas Keneally, Larissa Behrendt, John Hirst, Julian Morrow, Helen Irving, Mark Tredinnick, John Warhurst, David Morris, George Williams, Joy McCann, Erika Smith, Anthony Dillon, Paul Pickering, James Curran, David Donovan and George Winterton. About the editors: Mark McKenna is one of Australia's leading historians and the author of several prize-winning books, most recently a biography of Manning Clark, An Eye for Eternity, which won the Prime Minister's Award for Non-Fiction and the Victorian, NSW, Queensland and South Australian premiers' non-fiction awards. Benjamin Thomas Jones has taught Australian and British history at the Australian National University and the University of Sydney. He has published several articles on Australia's republican history and is currently writing a book on republicanism in the former British colonies.
