*ONLINE* Barry Jones - What Is To Be Done

Barry Jones was born in Geelong, Victoria, and educated at Melbourne High School and the University of Melbourne. At the age of 87, he is officially recognised as a national living treasure.

When Sleepers, Wake! was released in Australia almost four decades ago, it immediately became influential around the world. Now its author, the polymath and former politician Barry Jones, turns his attention to what has happened since — especially to politics, health, and our climate in the digital age — and to the challenges faced by increasingly fragile democracies and public institutions. What Is to Be Done is a long-awaited work from Jones on the challenges of modernity and what must be done to meet them.
