Description - How to Vote Progressive in Australia by Dennis Altman
Red or Green? Traditionally, Australian progressives have supported the Australian Labor Party; increasingly, the Greens appeal. What are the key differences between the parties? Is greater collaboration desirable? Is it likely?
Some progressives remain strongly committed to Labor or the Greens. Others have abandoned one or other of the parties from bitter experience. Others still are genuinely undecided, or seek to promote greater understanding and cooperation. What is the best way forward?
This volume brings together a range of party leaders, veterans, and academic experts to tackle these important questions. Deliberately pluralistic, it encompasses strongly divergent views. Dedicated to progressive change, it aims both to capture and to advance a vital public debate.
Featuring essays from Carmen Lawrence, Scott Ludlam, Van Badham, Adam Bandt, Felicity Wade, Peter Van Onselen, Andrew Giles, Ellen Sandell, Andrew Leigh, David Mejia-Canales, James Tierney, Shaun Wilson, Simon Copland, Nicholas Barry, Stewart Jackson and Narelle Miragliotta.
