With the John??Howard era now at an end, many commentators on both left and right are trying to put their finger on the reasons for his success. The Times Will Suit Them offers a fresh and provocative analysis of the decade of conservative government that has radically transformed not only Australian politics, but also??Australian social dynamics and culture. This engaging study shows how the Howard government muddled its way towards a political response to deep changes engendered by two decades of economic reform. The result was a m??lange of imported moral agendas from the U.S. (gay marriage, abortion, stem cell research), and also the culture wars pursued with every major institution in Australian society, from the ABC to public schooling.
