Today we find ourselves exhausted and depleted by natural and economic disruption. Worse, we face more of the same but on a greater, even more frightening scale. Hopeful and provocative, this book considers the principle social and ecological threats facing Australia, and outlines ways in which these crises need to be confronted and addressed. Leading writer and commentator Brendan Gleeson wants to rouse us and his book makes a big statement about our collective future.
