'History is not weighted on the scales, it is felt in our bones. It is worn on our skin. It is scarred in memory.'

The Queen reigned for seventy years. She came to the throne at the height of Empire and died with the world at a tipping point. What comes next after the death of what Stan Grant calls 'the last white Queen'?

From one of our most respected and award-winning journalists, Stan Grant, The Queen is Dead is a searing, viscerally powerful, emotionally unstoppable, pull-no-punches book on the bitter legacy of colonialism for indigenous people. Taking us on a journey through the world's fault lines, from the war in Ukraine, the rise of China, the identity wars, the resurgence of white supremacy, and the demand that Black Lives Matter, The Queen is Dead is a full-throated, impassioned argument on the necessity for an end to monarchy in Australia, the need for a Republic, and what needs to be done - through the Voice to Parliament and beyond - to address and redress the pain and sorrow and humiliations of the past.

Momentous and timely, The Queen is Dead carries an urgent, undeniable and righteous demand for justice, for a reckoning, and a just settlement with First Nations people.
Industry Reviews
'Poetic and moving ... a searing anger that demands empathy ... In the year of the Voice, his struggle speaks to all of us.' - Sydney Morning Herald

'Visceral, powerful and emotional' - The Australian

'Powerful and raw ... For many of us, this book will be uncomfortable reading, because we have been participants in, and beneficiaries of, the dispossession and alienation of this country's First Nations peoples. I hope we will see that in writing this book, Grant has done us all a great service.' - Readings

'The most profound and interesting book I have read in a long time. It will be regarded as a seminal work on the path of Australians coming to terms with their history.' - The Newtown Review of Books

'What an intriguing book this is: distinctive in both content and style ... It will both inspire and anger its readers. Few will be indifferent to its full-voiced passion and unchained introspection.' - Inside Story
