On Borrowed Time

With Robert Manne

One of Australia’s leading public intellectuals, Robert Manne, comes to the Library to talk about his new collection of essays, On Borrowed Time. In his latest publication Manne applies his brilliant mind to the topics that have shaped our world over the last five years, including climate change, the media, Australia’s asylum seeker policy, and WikiLeaks. This provocative and challenging book features essays on Donald Trump’s alleged links to Russia, Malcolm Turnbull’s leadership, the ideas driving Islamic State, and a searing critique of Jonathan Franzen’s views on climate change activists.
