Buraadja: The Liberal Case for National Reconciliation

Andrew Bragg

“Bragg is up for...a fight for a more just Australia.” (Stan Grant)

“An insightful look at the past and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.” (Ken Wyatt)

Yesterday

Buraadja provides a powerful account of the Liberal Party’s approach to indigenous affairs. The party’s record of successes and failures is frankly evaluated as an important basis for developing effective approaches to persistent problems.

Today

The problems faced by aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today are considered through two contrasting lenses: the extremist lens of the Black Lives Matter movement and the moderate lens of the Uluru Statement from the Heart. 

The Uluru Statement is shown to offer a modest approach to addressing problems by recognizing indigenous peoples in the constitution, making agreements, and coming to terms with Australia’s history.

Tomorrow

Andrew Bragg draws on liberal values to make a compelling case for national reconciliation in Australia. He offers some practical suggestions for remembering our history, listening to indigenous people, and planning for the future.

Andrew Bragg is a senator for New South Wales in the Australian Parliament and an honorary fellow of the PM Glynn Institute, Australian Catholic University’s public policy think tank.

Fundamental indigenous text. A Great listen

Excellent audibook on this critical issue. Bragg constructs well researched and well thought out analysis. In his own voice, he provides a compelling, erudite and balanced perspective on indigenous history and issues in modern Australia and a confident and thoughtful perspective on the way forward. An excellent and important text, helpful to all who wish to find a path to a united Australia.

Commitment to the Liberal case for change

Great to see more and more liberal & conservative politicians making the case for such an important part of reconciliation in Australia. Terrific commitment of time and passion to have the book personally narrated by the author, Senator Bragg. Well done and well worth a listen.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Audible Australia acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
