AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In this powerful collection, Australian writers including Gail Jones, Eva Sallis and Frank Brennan explore the relationship between writing and justice, a relationship utterly dependent on informed, ethical readers. These essays - from poets, essayists, academics, playwrights, critics and novelists - demonstrate how it is possible for writing to articulate concerns of justice, enlighten the broader community and move citizens to action.' (Publisher's blurb)

In Praise of Political Fiction, Rosie Scott , 2008 single work criticism
Rosie Scott argues for the importance of political fiction in Australian society and culture at the beginning of the twenty-first century. She writes: 'I want to suggest that as a body of work [political fiction] can create important life-sustaining myths that provide a healthy counter-balance to the superficial, the destructive and the heartless, which are always present in society and now, perhaps more than at any other period, in Australian history' (p. 33). She draws comparison to overseas political writing and then in the second half of the essay she offers exensive comment on the process of initiating, compiling and editing the anthology Another Country.
