New Voices for Social Democracy
By Dennis Glover, Glenn Patmore

New Voices for Social Democracy considers how we can reconcile social democracy's traditional concern with "class" with the rise of the politics of 'identity'. The authors propose practical and progressive suggestions for creating a social-democratic society in the face of globalisation, presentiing analyses of pros and cons of 'the third way' and 'stakeholder' politics for Australia.

Debates about the future direction of Labor, the Democrats and the Greens are seldom out of the news. This book will continue the debate started by Lindsay Tanner, Mark Latham, Michael Thompson and McKenzie Wark. People are searching for answers to the big issues for Australia - globalisation, reconciliation, inequality and the IT revolution. Some of Australia's best young writers, future opinion leaders and political players have their say about the direction for Australia in the 21st century.

Contributers include: Jason Li, founder of the Unity Party Catharine Lumby, journalist, author, and lecturer, Sydney University Christos Tsolkas, prize-winning author of Loaded Guy Rundle, co-editor of Arena magazine, theatre critic, author and playwright Julia Gillard, Federal Member for Lalor Matthew Townsend, young barrister, academic and Democrat Tim Harcourt, economist, former research officer at the ACTU Larissa Behrendt, Harvard Graduate and member of Research School of Social Science, ANU
