Dear CSAAers,

I'm pleased to let you know that my co-authored book, Inside Australian Culture: Legacies of Enlightenment Values (2014), is now available in 2015 paperback! With a foreword by Ashis Nandy and afterword by Vinay Lal.


'This book is a bold statement on issues of deep importance in Australian life: our cultural history, our racial politics, and the shape of our public culture. The authors have produced a highly readable and also disturbing book, most relevant to our disturbing times.' -Raewyn Connell, University of Sydney

About The Book:

Inside Australian Culture: Legacies of Enlightenment Values offers a critical intervention into the continuing effects of colonization in Australia and the structures it brought, which still inform and dominate its public culture. Through a careful analysis of three disparate but significant moments in Australian history, the authors investigate the way the British Enlightenment continues to dominate contemporary Australian thinking and values. Employing the lens of Indian cultural theorist Ashis Nandy, the authors argue for an Australian public culture that is profoundly conscious of its assumptions, history and limitations.

Best wishes
