    Sometimes, when I?m teaching the sociology of education, I put up a quote by Barry Jones next to his photograph. The students have no idea who he is. When I was growing up ? in fact, before I came to Australia ? he was a superstar contestant on a television quiz show here in the ...

    As someone who doesn't know much about the politics of Australia, I found it very informative. Wide range of topics from the digital world and Trump phenomenon to Climate change and Corona are scholarly discussed and criticised from an Australian point of view. My favorite chap...

    Perspective! I wasn't expecting to see a new book by Barry Jones, but came across it accidentally in a bookstore. My reaction was immediately that this book must offer perspective, on important matters, and I will probably learn something...a lot even. "Sleepers, Wake!" ...

    How can Australia be so clever at listening to experts on Covid, but so stupid and deaf to them on climate change? In his seminal book Sleepers, Wake! (1982), Barry Jones argued that our mineral wealth had blinkered us, our industrial addiction hindering the growth of a smart high-tech...
