RADICALS - REMEMBERING THE SIXTIES

Meredith Burgmann and Nadia Wheatley say that RADICALS - Remembering the Sixties will make you feel like you were there, whether or not you really were.

The Sixties - an era of protest, free love, civil disobedience, duffel coats, flower power, giant afros and desert boots, all recorded on grainy black and white film footage - marked a turning point for change. Radicals found their voices and used them...

THE ALTAR BOYS

Six-time Walkley Award-winning investigative reporter Suzanne Smith and shortlisted for the 2020 Walkley Book Award, THE ALTAR BOYS is the explosive expose of widespread and organised clerical abuse of children in one Australian city, and how the cover-up in the Catholic Church in Australia extended from parish priests to every echelon of the organisation.

BAD PEOPLE - AND HOW TO BE RID OF THEM

Geoffrey Robertson's recent theatre show recounted some key moments from his career which touched on the human rights aspects of big topics such as the death penalty and the pursuit and trial of Julian Assange. An inspirational talk from a truly good-hearted humanist who sees right through the justifications and rationalisations for human rights abuses that the power-hungry cling to. And all done with wit and wisdom.

Robertson's latest book outlines an emerging Plan B for punishing human rights abusers- 'Magnitsky Laws', which could impose debilitating sanctions on 'bad people'. The book explains the background and potential of these laws - early versions of them have been introduced in the US, Canada and Britain, and they are now being considered in Australia.
