About the Authors
  • Against a backdrop of advancing neoliberalism and globalisation, this timely book examines nine prominent Australians from diverse backgrounds - 'global citizens' who have each enhanced public life through promoting universal values and human rights. The book charts over 50 years of campaigning, and espouses perennial causes such as peace, social justice, ecological sustainability and gender and racial equality. Ultimately, this inspiring volume sends a message of hope for Australian society and provides a benchmark for all proponents of change.

    • Analyses the activity of prominent intellectuals and activists and also highlights lesser known activists
    • Includes current and former politicians such as Bob Brown and Margaret Reynolds and also historical figures such as Faith Bandler and Herb Feith
    • Covers a wide generational range of people and shows how a diverse group of Australian activists have influenced public thinking and brought about change
