              When white people cry foul it is often people of colour who suffer. White tears have a potency that silences racial minorities. White Tears/Brown Scars blows open the inconvenient truth that when it comes to race, white entitlement is too often masked by victimhood. Never is this... more obvious than the dealings between women of colour and white women. What happens when racism and sexism collide? Ruby Hamad provides some confronting answers.

              The Killing Season Uncut

              The Killing Season Uncut (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Australians came to the ABC's The Killing Season in their droves, their fascination with the Rudd Gillard struggle as unfinished as the saga itself. Rudd and Gillard dominate the drama as they strain to claim the narrative of Labor's years in power. The journey to screen for each... of their interviews is telling in itself. Kevin Rudd gives his painful account of the period and recalled in livid detail the events of losing the prime ministership. Julia Gillard is frank and unsparing of her colleagues. More than a hundred people were interviewed for The Killing Season-ministers, backbenchers, staffers, party officials, pollsters and public servants-recording their vivid accounts of the public and private events that made the Rudd and Gillard governments and then brought them undone. It is a damning portrait of a party at war with itself: the personal rivalries and the bitter defeats that have come to define the Rudd Gillard era.
