Works about this Work

Books and Debate About the Australian Government's Policies Towards Asylum Seekers Ann Shead , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Republics of Letters : Literary Communities in Australia 2012; (p. 53-68)
'The power of book publishing on the wider Australian polity in the twenty-first century is the subject of Jan Zwar's chapter. She uses 'empirical mapping' - data from Nielsen BookScan, Factiva and parliamentary records - to examine the impact of books on the asylum-seeker debate of the 2000s. Patterns of reviews, media mentions, academic citations and references in parliament can indicate in what ways books, and those who write and publish them, remain 'actively part of the democratic process.'' (Kirkpatrick, Peter and Dixon, Robert: Introduction xiii-xvi)
