Product description


"At 153 pages God Save the Queen is a quick read, and Altman packs a lot into it, whizzing through the histories and current political climates of an array of countries to gain better understanding of the way monarchies have sustained themselves and evolved. ... It's the ability, in such a relatively brief space of words, to capture the breadth of diversity and nuances of modern monarchy, that makes Altman's exploration of the phenomenon truly fascinating."
--Ben Pobjie, The Australian

"This very readable little book encourages us to think more about the game of thrones and the different ways it might be played."
--Jeff Sparrow, The Age

Praise for Unrequited Love

"Dennis Altman's peripatetic book Unrequited Love moves from Australia to the United States, across Europe and parts of Asia. Filled with intellectual luminaries such as James Baldwin, Dorothy Porter, Susan Sontag, and Christos Tsiolkas, Altman's life and career has been intense and wide-ranging ... Unrequited Love--a memoir in diaries--is the work of a hugely influential Australian writer and commentator."
--Sebastian Sharp, Australian Book Review

"From Lyndon Johnson to Trump, Altman's diary takes us from the early days of AIDS to gay liberation against a backdrop of Australia's strange love for America."
--Gillian Triggs

"An ingenious combining of memoir and analysis, personal reflection and social science."
--Frank Bongiorno

Praise for Queer Wars:

"The global struggle for sexual and gender minority rights is one of the most critical and contested human rights movements of our time. As queer communities mobilize, and the coming generation of young people worldwide express greater tolerance, acceptance and calls for freedom, the pushback has been intense. Altman and Symons have done us all an invaluable service in unpacking the complex politics around LGBT rights, demands, cultures and contexts. Queer Wars is essential reading for all engaged in pressing for more just, open and diverse societies."
--Chris Beyrer, Johns Hopkins University, and president of the International AIDS Society

"Dennis Altman's and Jonathan Symons's work Queer Wars is a timely and accessible intervention on the global state of play for queer rights."
--Australian Institute of International Affairs

"Queer Wars is broad in its scope, engaging in its material, thorough in its conception, and passionate in its argument on how advocacy should build a consensus that protects sexual minorities globally from violence and discrimination. A book for strategists, activists, academics and international workers alike."
--Edwin Cameron, constitutional court of South Africa

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

An avowed republican investigates the unexpected durability and potential benefits of constitutional monarchies. --This text refers to the mass_market edition.
