Shortlisted, Historical and Critical Studies Award, Western Australian Premier's Book Awards 1997 At a time when Australians are profoundly disillusioned with politics and politicians, Rooting Democracy makes an impassioned plea for citizens and their governments to enter into a new kind of dialogue. Moira Raynor asks probing questions about the processes of Australian democracy. How do they work? Why are they not working? What can we do to repair them, and to restore public faith in them. The answer to these questions will determine what kind of world we leave the citizens of tomorrow. Will they inherit a user-pays society based on competition, insecurity and fear, or a community who democratic values are firmly rooted in mutual respect, co-operation and trust?
