Join us on 18th of October to launch Lindy Edwards’ latest book – The Passion of Politics: The Role of Ideology and Political Theory in Australia – with the Hon. Dr Geoff Gallop, Director of the Graduate School of Government at the University of Sydney and former Premier of Western Australia.

This book sets out to demystify the ideas at the heart of  today’s political clashes. It explores issues from gay marriage and feminism, to free markets and egalitarianism; Aboriginal rights; White Australia and immigration; the city-rural divide and climate change.

For anyone who is passionate about politics, these are the ideas that fuel the fire in the belly. The book, from the author of How to Argue with an Economist, introduces the battle of ideas at the heart of the big issues. It doesn’t offer answers, but offers a powerful and compelling way of understanding our choices.

Many thanks to Catalyst for hosting this event.
