Boffins Books says
The UWA Oceans Institute, the City of Perth Library & Boffins Books are pleased to present David Marr, author of the latest Quarterly Essay #65 “On Politics & Prejudice”.

In this timely essay, David Marr looks at Australia’s brand of the politics of resentment now sweeping the world.

Pauline Hanson is not alone out there. A million votes are in play. Strategists in both Labor and the Coalition are asking, what can we give them? At stake are the progressive hopes of most Australians, hopes held hostage more than ever to the fears – especially the race fears – of old Australia.

This is a riveting essay by one of Australia’s best writers, examining the peculiar power of the fearful in this confident and prosperous nation.
This presentation will be chaired by Professor Erika Techera, Director, UWA Oceans Institute.

Copies of Quarterly Essay will be available for sale on the night.
