"Paul Keating and John Howard altered the nation's body-clock. Between them, they dominated 30 years of power, as both treasurers and prime ministers. Typically, they have been seen as only antagonists with competeing visions of Australia and its place in the world"--Provided by publisher
Fault lines : race, work, and the politics of changing Australia by George Megalogenis ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Faultlines, journalist George Megalogenis explores the seemingly contradictory tendencies in the nation's political and cultural make up. How can Australia be both open and closed? Why are we pro immigration, yet unsympathetic to asylum-seekers? Why is it that the majority of workers in our globally connected economy are women, yet the senior levels of government, media, and business remain dominated by men?" "Using a wide range of data from the most recent census, and secret race polling conducted by the major political parties, Megalogenis investigates the faultlines of gender, race, and work which divide the nation - as well as issues raised by conflicts between the new economy and the old, the city and the bush, and the inner city and the rest. He identifies an emerging generation - Generation W - that is forming a 'wobbly bridge' between old and new Australia."--BOOK JACKET

The Australian moment : how we were made for these times by George Megalogenis ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Australians are generally uncomfortable in the global spotlight - outside of sports stadiums. But after seeing us negotiate the Asian financial crisis, the tech wreck and the Global Financial Crisis that bred the Great Recession, the world is now turning to us, the 'miracle economy', for guidance. This is the page-turning story of our nation's remarkable transformation since the '70s. One of our most respected journalists, George Megalogenis, traces the key economic reforms and brilliant moments of collective instinct that opened our society to the immigration of capital, ideas and people to just the right degree. He pinpoints the events that shaped our good fortune and national character, and corrects our selective memory where history has been misunderstood or misdirected by self-interested political leadership. No one writing today is better at reading the numbers and telling the story around them than Megalogenis, and no one else has been able to coax our former prime ministers to candidly re-assess each other's contribution to the Australian Moment. Fraser, Hawke, Keating, Howard and Rudd, as well as Whitlam's confidant Graham Freudenberg, go on record for the first time about many aspects of the internal politicking, decision-making and bids for the legacy of our astonishing period of significant reform
Trivial pursuit leadership and the end of the reform era by George Megalogenis ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the aftermath of the 2010 election, George Megalogenis considers what has happened to politics in Australia. Have we entered a new phase with minority government and the rise of the Greens and independents? The Hawke, Keating and Howard years were ones of bold reform; recently we have seen an era of power without purpose. But why? Is it down to powerful lobbies, or the media, or a failure of leadership, or all of the above? And whatever the case, how will hard decisions be taken for the future? In a brilliant analysis, Megalogenis dissects the cycle of polls, focus groups and presidential politics and explores what it has done to the prospect of serious, difficult reform and the style of our leaders. He argues that politics-as-usual has become a self-defeating game and mounts a persuasive case for a different model of leadership. This is also an essay that looks at the fate of progressive politics after the three years of opportunities lost. In distilling the meaning of election 2010, it offers a thought-provoking guide to the challenges to come. Now that the political landscape has changed, where to next?

The Australian moment by George Megalogenis ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
There's no better place to be during economic turbulence than Australia. Brilliant in a bust, we've learnt to use our brains in a boom. Although the Great Recession continues to rumble around the globe, we successfully negotiated the Asian financial crisis, the dotcom tech wreck and the GFC. Despite a lingering inability to acknowledge our achievements at home, the rest of the world now asks: How did we get it right? This is the page-turning story of our nation's remarkable transformation since the '70s. One of our most respected journalists, George Megalogenis, traces the key economic reforms and brilliant moments of collective instinct that opened our society to the immigration of capital, ideas and people to just the right degree. He pinpoints the events that shaped our good fortune and national character, and corrects our selective memory where history has been misunderstood or misdirected by self-interested political leadership
