Orwell has two key messages that speak directly to contemporary Australians- that respecting the truth is essential to restoring the integrity of our democratic system; and that if we want to preserve our egalitarian way of life, the centre-left must get in touch with ordinary people again.'George Orwell has had an astonishing influence on Australian politics, often in ways he would have disapproved of fiercely. Today, one hundred years after his birth, his relevance is growing rather than diminishing.Orwell's insights and values represent a challenge and an opportunity for the Australian left , especially because a host of public institutions and once-unquestioned rights are being attacked by a determined and ideologically driven band of radical conservatives, many of whom justify their beliefs through an appeal to the socialist George Orwell.

Journalism Ethics: Arguments and Cases for the 21st Century explores the major ethical dilemmas facing journalists in the digital age. Engaging with both the theory and practice of journalism ethics, this text explains the key ethical concepts and dilemmas in journalism and provides an international range of examples and case studies, considering traditional and social media from a global perspective. Journalism Ethics offers an introductory philosophical underpinning to ethics that traces the history of the freedom of expression from the time of Greek philosophers like Aristotle, through the French and American revolutions, to modern day. Throughout the book Patching and Hirst examine ethically-challenging issues such as deception, trial by media, dealing with sources and privacy intrusion. They also explore continuing ethical fault lines around accuracy, bias, fairness and objectivity, chequebook journalism, the problems of the foreign correspondent, the conflicts between ethics and the law and between journalists and public relations consultants. Concluding with a step-by-step guide to ethical thinking on the job, this textbook is an invaluable resource for students of journalism, media and communication.

Hope is an aspect of human existence that appears increasingly significant in our modern world. However, what hope is, how it works, and why it is important continue to be debated, with different approaches to hope evident within different fields. This anthology of hope is unique in that it features contributions from many seminal writers and researchers across a wide range of disciplines, and thus offers multiple perspectives on this important and complex phenomenon. Hope is viewed through the lenses of theology, philosophy, politics, psychology, nursing, and medicine, with authors covering the histories and possible futures of hope and hope research. Encompassing the theoretical and the practical, the societal and the personal, this book will be a valuable resource to those commencing or conducting research into hope, and an enjoyable and insightful read for those wishing to know more about the state of hope today.

In many respects, Australia behaves as if it were still a colonial dependency. Our policies on foreign affairs, trade, human rights, and the environment seem to be uncritically allied to those of the United States. Alison Broinowski argues that Australia's development as an independent nation has stalled, and warns that behaving like the schoolyard bully's errand-boy has earned Australia a reputation for being ready to 'kiss up and kick down'. Broinowski shows how being so closely identified with current American policies harms Australia's interests, and how the United States alliance actually endangers Australia more than it protects us. But she remains optimistic that Australia may at last be turning in the direction of genuine independence. Allied and Addicted challenges many of the assumptions of conservative policy-makers, and highlights the need for informed choices in the debate about Australia's place in the world--Publisher.

A stunning collection of essays that analyses the major issues facing Australia today This nation has a lot of unfinished business. Will we become a republic any time soon? How can we honour our Indigenous peoples and tackle the intractable disadvantage they face? What does our treatment of asylum seekers reveal about us? Will we have a proper debate the next time we go to war? In early 2013 La Trobe University held a conference in honour of Professor Robert Manne, at which papers were presented by thinkers Manne has worked or argued with, and whom he most admires. State of the Nation compiles these original essays. They include innovative explorations of multiculturalism, social democracy, the future for Labor and the challenge of climate change.
