Tom Doig and Dennis Glover have written two terrific books on Australian political economy. Dennis has done a terrific critique of pro-market policies and their impact on communities, using Doveton in Melbourne as a case study.
Tom’s book is about the impact of privatisation on the safety standards of a crucial industry, in this case coal mining. His story is about a fire that raged for two months at the Hazelwood Coal mine.
They are both beautifully written and come highly recommended.
