People like us : how arrogance is dividing Islam and the West by Waleed Aly( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No two civilisations have spoken so many words about each other in recent years as those of Islam and the West. And no two seem to have communicated less. As a Muslim born and raised in Australia, Waleed Aly stands at the intersection of these two civilisations. From there he sees a world of radical misunderstandings, perpetuated by the inability of each to look beyond the stereotypes and truly comprehend the other. People Like Us examines the cultural chasm between Islam and the West by confronting the issues at the heart of the misunderstanding: women, jihad, secularism, terrorism, Reformation and modernity. Drawing on the author's knowledge of Western and Islamic intellectual traditions, it provides a fascinating analysis of these subjects, exposing the depth of ignorance surrounding them and the role of both Muslim and Western media in reinforcing stereotypes. Above all, it argues that the only way to avoid perpetual and escalating conflict between Islam and the West is to acknowledge one indisputable and powerful truth: that we are all complex, nuanced people. We must resist the mutual temptation to assume that the other's problems could be solved if only they became more like us. This is a brave and provocative book of rare insight, and an indispensable contribution to understanding our troubled world

What's right? : the future of conservatism in Australia by Waleed Aly( Recording )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What did George W. Bush and John Howard do to conservatism? In their wake, the conservative parties in the US and Australia seem to have lost their way - they no longer have a vision of the future. Their neoconservative foreign policies and neoliberal economics have been discredited, and they are split on climate change and much else. How did the Right in Australia end up in this place? How might it renew itself? In this groundbreaking essay, Waleed Aly begins by unravelling the terms Right and Left, arguing that they have become meaningless - they only foster a political conversation that becomes more about "teams" than ideas. He discusses neoliberal economics and its corrosive effect on the social fabric, and how, in response, Howard-style conservatism was all too ready to dictate social values, even to the point of prescribing who or what is Australian. Aly discusses what a better conservatism might look like. He argues that the political issues of the day, such as climate change and the financial crisis, mean a reactionary brand of politics is unlikely to work because public opinion is swiftly leaving it behind. He draws on the work of conservative thinkers such as John Gray, Owen Harries and even P.J. O'Rourke to sketch the kind of conservatism that seems scarce in Australia, but which would be a welcome presence

Quarterly Essay 37 What's Right? : the Future of Conservatism in Australia by Waleed Aly( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Where did the Right go wrong? With the departure of George W. Bush and John Howard, conservative parties in the US and Australia entered a period of turmoil. Foreign affairs, economics, the environment - all were issues to be avoided. Most profoundly, conservatives no longer seemed to have a compelling vision of the future - and arguably still don't. How did the Right end up in this state? How might conservatism renew itself? In this illuminating essay, Waleed Aly begins by unravelling the terms "Right" and "Left," arguing that these have become meaningless. He contends that conservativ

Edward St Aubyn : At Last( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edward St Aubyn looks and sounds like he{u2019}s stepped out of Brideshead Revisited or Vile Bodies. He{u2019}s got the posh accent and the languid style. But he writes smart stylish prose that{u2019}s heavily satirical. And yet his five book series about the Melrose family has a dark, dark side. And the base of the satire is heavily autobiographical. In an early interview about the first book, St Aubyn responded to an interviewer{u2019}s question, by telling him that the 5 year old boy Patrick, raped by his father, was in fact a self portrait. Ed St Aubyn and Patrick {u2013} the key character in the series {u2013} both went on to develop heavy heroin addictions and the books are a chronicle of life within a cruel and eccentric family; from early childhood trauma to addiction and transitioning out the other side. The books are in response to a suggestion from Ed St Aubyn{u2019}s psychotherapist who, 22 years ago, suggested that he 'write out his demons'. Contrary to what you might imagine, there are some very funny sequences in the Melrose series
