The Australian Labor Party has forgotten how to win national elections. Federal Labor finds itself with only one in three Australians prepared to give it their vote. It has arrived at a historic tipping point that if not fixed potentially spells the end for one of the world's oldest and most successful social democratic parties. Caught between its more conservative working-class base in Australia's suburbs and regions and its inner-city progressive activists, Labor appears unable to bridge a growing chasm, and unable to build winning national coalitions. The 129-year-old ALP only succeeds when its right-wing, known as Labor Unity or Centre Unity, is on top of its game. The Write Stuff: Voices of Unity on Labor's Future features thirty essays on the way forward for Labor and Australia. Its contributors are drawn from across the nation's expanses - new and established voices, members of federal and state parliaments, and leading unionists. With the defeat at the last election and postponement of Labor's national conference there is a vacuum at the heart of the ALP - a genuine battle of ideas and vigorous policy debate. The Write Stuff provides that contest in spades. As its chapters testify, ideas remain powerful tools in our nation's public debate. Big ideas and sharp thinking - politics with purpose - will underpin a Labor comeback in the twenty-first century. We do not intend to be the last ones to turn out the lights on the way out for the ALP. Labor needs to be bigger, not smaller: a bigger and more diverse party reflective of modern Australia, and a party of bigger ideas and national ambition. Millions of working Australians rely on the nation's oldest political party and more than ever they need Labor to li429ght the way nationally. The Australian way of life is really the Labor way. It can remain so only if we choose the Right way. Nick Dyrenfurth and Misha Zelinsky have rendered the Labor movement an extraordinary service in having The Write Stuff published. It encourages a contest of ideas, but perhaps more importantly provides a signpost which begins the journey back to government in Canberra. - Stephen Loosely

An examination of nanotechnology as a lens through which to study contemporary democracy in both theory and practice. In Democratic Experiments, Brice Laurent discusses the challenges that emerging technologies create for democracy today. He focuses on nanotechnology and its attendant problems, proposing nanotechnology as a lens through which to understand contemporary democracy in both theory and practice. Arguing that democracy is at stake where nanotechnology is defined as a problem, Laurent examines the sites where nanotechnology is discussed and debated by scientists, policymakers, and citizens. It is at these sites where the joint production of nanotechnology and the democratic order can be observed. Focusing on the United States, France, and Europe, and various international organizations, Laurent analyzes representations of nanotechnology in science museums, collective discussions in participatory settings, the making of categories such as “nanomaterials” or responsible innovation” in standardization and regulatory arenas, and initiatives undertaken by social movements. He contrasts American debates, in which the concern for public objectivity is central, with the French “state experiment,” the European goal of harmonization, and the international concern with a global market. In France, public debate proceeded in response to public protest and encountered a radical critique of technological development; the United States experimented with an innovative approach to technology assessment. The European regulatory approach results in lengthy debates over political integration; the United States relies on the adversarial functioning of federal agencies. Because nanotechnology is a domain where concerns over anticipation and participation are pervasive, Laurent argues, nanotechnology—and science and technology studies more generally—provides a relevant focus for a renewed analysis of democracy.

Who can be a larrikin and how is it used politically? The figure of the larrikin goes deep in Australian culture. But who can be a larrikin, and what are its political uses? This brilliant essay looks at Australian politics through the prisms of class, egalitarianism and masculinity. Lech Blaine examines some “top blokes,” with particular focus on Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese, but stretching back to Bob Hawke and Kerry Packer. He shows how Morrison brought a cohort of voters over to the Coalition side, “flipping” what was once working-class Labor culture. Blaine weaves his own experiences through the essay as he explores the persona of the Aussie larrikin. What are its hidden contradictions – can a larrikin be female, or Indigenous, say? – and how has it been transformed by an age of affluence and image?

Is there an option to oppose without automatically participating in the opposed? This volume explores different perspectives on dissent, understanding practices, cultures, and theories of resistance, dispute, and opposition as inherently participative. It discusses aspects of the body as a political instance, the identity and subjectivity building of individuals and groups, (micro-)practices of dissent, and theories of critique from different disciplinary perspectives. This collection thus touches upon contemporary issues, recent protests and movements, artistic subversion and dissent, online activism as well as historic developments and elemental theories of dissent.
