As Others See Us:
The values debate in Australia
edited by J.V. D'Cruz, Bernie Neville, Devika Goonewardene & Phillip Darby

This book is a splendid collection of essays on Australian culture, 
politics, and the "values" debate- illuminated by the ideas of a 
thinker Australians need to know, Ashis Nandy, one of the foremost 
critical intellectuals on the globe. Across issues from asylum 
seekers to sport, this book digs through the clotted layers of 
official hypocrisy to lay bare both the violence, and the hope, that 
mark our situation in the world.
-- Professor Raewyn Connell, University of Sydney, author of Southern 
Theory (2007).
