Australia's Welfare Wars Revisited by Philip Mendes

Book Description

This represents a substantial revision of Philip Mendes' successful textbook Australia's Welfare Wars, in which the author explains - and questions - many of the values and assumptions that underpin contemporary social welfare policies. In particular, the book is critical of the Neo-liberal or Economic rationalist ideas that now dominate the welfare debates in Australia and overseas, and instead demonstrates and reaffirms the ongoing relevance of social-democratic and welfare-state ideals.

Boycotting Israel is Wrong by Philip Mendes Boycotting Israel is Wrong, Paperback (May 2015)

Argues that the BDS movement (boycott, divestment and sanctions) is the wrong way to broker peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The BDS movement against Israel has gained traction and publicity worldwide. Yet here, Philip Mendes and Nick Dyrenfurth argue that BDS is too blunt an instrument to use in a such a complex situation.

Jews and the Left by Philip Mendes Jews and the Left, Hardback (May 2014)

The historical involvement of Jews in the political Left is well known, but far less attention has been paid to the political and ideological factors which attracted Jews to the Left. After the Holocaust and the creation of Israel many lost their faith in universalistic solutions, yet lingering links between Jews and the Left continue to exist.

Jews and Australian Politics by Philip Mendes Jews and Australian Politics, Paperback (December 2004)

Explains the contemporary politics of Australian Jewry. This book situates the politics of Australian Jews through comparisons with general patterns in Australian politics, the politics of other minorities in Australia, and the politics of other Western Jewish communities. It contains an appendix of Jewish Parliamentarians.
