AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The federal government has been promoting the innovation economy, but is considering recommendations for legal reform which will undermine the financial and cultural interests of creators. This conflict captures the tension around real reform in this area. Are they being serious? The recommendations are contained in the report of the Productivity Commission, an independent panel which reviews options to make our economy more productive, favouring free markets, and eschewing monopolistic practices.'

    'Welcome to the November Arts issue. We are delighted to announce Robyn Archer as our new Laureate. Other highlights include our annual survey of critics and arts professionals on their favourite concerts, operas, films, ballets, plays, television programs, and exhibitions. We also look at musical memoirs, rivalry in art, the joys of binge-watching boxed-sets, music competitions during the Cold War, transgressions in cinema, the history of Indigenous art and of the Australian art market, and art during Germany’s Weimar period. ABR Chair Colin Golvan QC explores the cultural risks of parallel importation, and Neal Blewett reviews a new biography of H.V. Evatt. We review new fiction from Margaret Atwood, Jacinta Halloran, Laura Elizabeth Woollett, A. N. Wilson, Sam Carmody, Sean Rabin, Kristel Thornell, and Hebe de Souza, as well as classic fiction from New Zealand. Bill Manhire is our Poet of the Month.' (Publication summary)
