Nick Cater, senior editor at "The Australian" newspaper, tracks the seismic changes in Australian culture and outlook since Donald Horne wrote "The Lucky Country" in 1964Australia's good fortune is not found in its geography or history, but rather in the Australian character, the nation's greatest renewable resource. Countries don't get lucky, people do. Liberated from the constraints of the Old World, Australia's pioneers mined their reserves of enterprise, energy and ingenuity to build the great civilization of the south. Their over-riding principle was fairness. Everybody had a right to a "fair go" and was obliged to do the right thing by others. Today, that spirit of egalitarianism is threatened by the rise of a new breed of left-leaning sophisticated Australians who claim to better understand the demands of the age. Their presumption of elitism and superior virtue tempts them to dismiss opposing views. A bold and provocative book about Australia's national identity. ISBN: 9780732296292.

Why does Australia, a nation with one of the world's best economies, have such a dim view of its own performance? Why does it see itself as worse off than some of the basket-case economies of southern Europe? How did a country that was smart enough to avoid recession and mass unemployment despite a global meltdown get so down on itself? Jim Chalmers argues that the combination of hyper-partisanship and self-serving incentives in politics have resulted in a deficit of national self-esteem. This insider account from respected Labor advisor provides a unique perspective on national identity. He concludes that unless a stop is put to the poisonous politics of recent years, Australia runs the risk of squandering the existing national advantages and compromising our ability to tackle the challenges of the future.
