Product Overview

Arguing that fear has been a crucial factor in shaping Australian public policy, this study charts its consequences on the Australian community. Examining the effects of being constantly warned about the risk of terrorism, this account discusses how xenophobia has shaped policies toward refugees, indigenous Australians, and Islamic fundamentalists. Focusing on the exaggerated anxieties people now have over the risks of assault, murder, child abuse, and robbery, this book also looks at the sustained campaigns on law and order and suggests a wholehearted embrace of freedom, equality, and cooperation.
