THE POWER OF MANY VOICES

From the focal point of the recent #METOO movement, discussion has escalated around the pervasive scale of violence, prejudices and unwanted sexualisation perpetrated against women on a daily basis in our communities.

While these issues have been explored for decades - from suffragettes to feminism - we can expect many more voices to join the demand for urgent change, as technology enables strength in numbers and fosters the courage to speak out, share experiences and ideas.

IN THE NATIONAL INTEREST - A NEW SERIES

Pocket sized but powerful, In the National Interest is a new series in the Monash University Publishing list that is focused on the challenges Australia confronts. The series informs, influences and inspires public discourse. Showcasing experts both from within Monash and beyond, these short, thought-provoking and accessible books will address the major issues of our times, from public policy to governance and government. Perfect for the thoughtful commuter or an intellectual lunch break.

So far in the series, former PM, Kevin Rudd, examines the conservative movement and Murdoch monopoly, Rachel Doyle SC (a leading barrister who has appeared several Royal Commissions) looks at Power and Consent, Bill Bowtell (leading health policy strategist and an architect of Australia's renowned HIV pandemic response) unmasks pandemic politics and Scott Ryan (long serving Liberal MP, Minister and current President of the Senate) takes on the challenges of modern politics.

THE VANISHING CRIMINAL

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- One of the disheartening observations made about the communities in which we go about our daily lives, is that given the opportunity to commit a crime, more people than you would hope will do so. But, like me, you may also be feeling that crimes such as burglary, robbery and car theft are far less common than once was. This turns out to be true. The levels of these crimes have dropped back, albeit from an alarming spike (pun apology) that ran from the mid-eighties to 2001. My own households experienced two car thefts in that period.

Here, two authors seasoned in the world of criminology run through the reasons posited for the falls. Sadly, violent crime (assault, domestic violence, murder) have not shown a similar drop, with far more disturbing and lasting effects than the loss of mere property.

The book offers fascinating views over time of the impact of policing (only yesterday, whilst munching my sandwich, I was approached by a police officer as part of Project Servator - a new endeavour) and of social developments such as heroin and 'ice' epidemics, wages, employment and economic well-being, and the role that developments in technology play in the rise and fall of crime. Craig Kirchner
