A forensic look at the Lucky Country, from the inside and outside. Never before has Australia enjoyed such economic, commercial, diplomatic and cultural clout. Its recession-proof economy is the envy of the world. It s the planet s great lifestyle superpower. But its politics have never been so brutal, narrow and facile, as well as such a global laughing stock. A positive national story is at odds with a deeply unattractive Canberra story. In The Rise and Fall of Australia, BBC correspondent and author Nick Bryant offers an outsider s take on the great paradox of modern-day Australian life- of how the country has got richer at a time when its politics have become impoverished. In this thoroughly entertaining and thought-provoking book, dealing with politics, racism, sexism, culture, sport and the nation s place in the region and the world, Bryant sets out to describe the new Australia rather than the mythic country so often misunderstood not just by foreigners but Australians themselves.
