Topic: Australia Reimagined by Hugh Mackay AO
‘When it comes to our future, misplaced optimism is as dangerous as blind faith. What is needed is the courage to face the way things are, and the wisdom and imagination to work out how to make things better.’
This book is essential reading for everyone who loves Australia enough to want to make it a better place for us all.
