Publishers Description: Most Australians despise what Pauline Hanson stands for, yet politics in this country is now orbiting around One Nation.In this timely Quarterly Essay, David Marr looks at Australias politics of fear, resentment and race. Who votes One Nation, and why How much of this is due to inequality How much to racism How should the major parties respond to anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim voices What damage do Australias new entrepreneurs of hate inflict on the nationWritten with drama and wit, this is a ground-breaking look at politics and prejudice by one of Australias best writers.-This woman went to prison, danced the cha-cha on national television for a couple of years, and failed so often at the ballot box she became a running joke. But the truth is she never left us. She was always knocking on the door. Most of those defeats at the polls were close-run things. For twenty years political leaders appeased Hansons followers while working to keep her out of office. The first strategy tainted Australian politics. The second eventually failed. So shes with us again - the Kabuki make-up, that mop of red hair and the voice telling us what we already know: Im fed up.- --David Marr
