  • 5 Pauline Hanson is such an easy target a shrill, voluptuous redhead with extremist fringe ideas who attracts others with views outside of mainstream politics But David Marr goes to the trouble to not take cheap shots but to have a good look at what she thinks she stands for, what her followers think she stands for, and what other voters think she stands for.Almost twenty years ago, she came into federal parliament as a Queensland senator fighting against Aboriginal land rights and Australia bei [...]


  • A fantastic dissection of race and politics Marr clearly documents the descent of our politics into this unedifying dialogue, led by former Prime Minister John Howard Oh for a leader, who is enough of a leader, to lead us out of this morass.


  • David Marr s Quarterly Essay could be read as a sequel to the previous Essay by Stan Grant The Australian Dream Grant stated bluntly that for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, the Australian Dream is rooted in racism Marr describes how Pauline Hanson s voters, drawn to her by racism, dream of returning to an old version of Australia that hasn t existed since their parents were children and probably didn t really exist even then.Marr uses data from the Australian Electoral Survey AES [...]


  • Much food for thought if you want to try to get a clearer understanding of Hansonism in Australian politics Very thought provoking Well written and accessible This is as much an analysis of how the politics of race is deployed in Australia primarily around the major parties touting for business in the hard right while, as David Marr points out, most of us are scattered in the centre Why Because elections are lost and won in the marginal electorates On a handful of votes.


  • David Marr s essay draws on research and historical evidence to show just how few Australians actually fall for Hansen s incoherent, irrational bile laden rhetoric.I found it extremely comforting to be reassured that my love of Australia as a welcoming place if the fair go is not dead despite what popular media may try to have us believe.Keep calm, sit back and wait for One Nation to implode once methinks.Thank you David.


  • One woman s ambition of dividing Australia on the basis of race and how it got its current foothold in Australia How John Howard, the ultimate politician, played the game of numbers and gave One Nation it s first lease of life for the minority votes One Nation wants the Australia of a few decades back, an Australia with white Christian immigrants But that age is gone Technology is putting the world on fast forward Only change is constant and there is no going back.Hope Australia will get some st [...]



  • I m back One Nation and the politics of race This essay by David Marr is well worth reading, especially by those of us puzzled by the impact of the Hanson phenomenon Who d have thought, after Pauline Hanson s brief period in the Australian Parliament as the member for Oxley between 1996 and 1998, that she d be elected as a Senator in 2016, together with three other members of the Pauline Hanson One Nation party And who d have thought that the state of the Australian Parliament is such that Senat [...]


  • Quarterly Essays are always a bit of a lucky dip Some editions feel like stretched out magazine articles, others feel like cut down first drafts of longer form books which many end up being.The interesting thing about this book is what isn t in it So much has been said, and said, and said again about Hanson so it was going to be interesting to see what there is left to be said about her and her party in its various incarnations Just as the subject is a predictable attention grabber, David Marr h [...]


  • On television, especially on ABC s Insiders, David Marr can sometimes come across as pompous, perhaps even supercilious Not so in his writing The White Queen is an objective, forensic examination of race and politics in Australia focussing on the populist racist beliefs of Pauline Hanson from the perceived threat of Asians 20 year ago to the dangers of Muslims today Armed with data from the ANU s Australian Electoral Study, Marr meticulously and objectively explains why Hanson has been able to m [...]


  • As subtle as a sledgehammer Pauline Hansen is an extremely polarising character in Australian politics I loathe her As the daughter of a migrant I find her policies to be abhorrent Yet She continues to gain momentum, not necessarily for the right reasons This essay from The Quarterly Essay was frustrating in that it explained many of the reasons why Ms Hansen gained popularity yet did nothing to analyse where this may take us in the future With the rise of ultra conservative politics the world o [...]


  • A hesitant four stars I agree with everything Marr says, and he makes a compelling argument, especially when he steps outside Hanson s immediate pull and looks at the response of federal governments to her rise, and the broader question of race baiting in politics.Still, I don t know if he added that much to the conversation here, and I felt there were some surprising typographical and editorial errors which are atypical of this series Nevertheless, it s important that we continue analysing thes [...]


  • Interesting essay, as someone who is only familiar with the last 5 years of Hanson s life, and the common snippits you hear in the media it was a concise overview of her career, the politics around it and her one nation s supporters It was mostly based around survey data which was a great starting point for each section which was then built on She s someone that you could have attacked outright and her supporters and given them labels but instead it was a calm and methodical investigation of how [...]


  • Excellent essay by Marr Up there with his one on Abbott He traces Hanson and her voters over the years to explain who they are, where they have come from and who they are now It s important to understand this section of Australia as even though, thankfully, it s not a large part of Australia given the marginal nature of much of Australian politics they can hold significant power over some issues.


  • David Marr is one of my favourite journalists Here he does an excellent job of blending hard survey data about One Nation voters with narrative storytelling about the party and Pauline Hanson herself For someone who has never followed the history of the party that closely I found it a very illuminating read.


  • An overview of the second rise of Australian anti politician Pauline Hanson, who votes for her and why they do, and the damage Hansonism might do if left unchecked and how to check it.A good primer on the subject, although one that is written by a noted lefty who takes a rather partisan view of it all.Rated G 3 5


  • I was not expecting to enjoy this read quite so much as I am usually a fiction reader but I was fascinated by all of the results and trends that went along with voters for One Nation We had engaging discussions with all 3 book clubs about this.We scored it Monday 6pm 9 8.5 8 6 8Monday 7 30pm 8 7 8 9 8 8.5 8Friday 10 30am 8 7 7 6 8 8 7 7 6 8 7


  • Hanson and her views are deplorable, but John Howard s willingness to take her ideas mainstream to benefit himself and his party make him truly despicable Another outstanding and extraordinarily well researched piece by David Marr Well worth reading.


  • This excellent essay details the rise, fall and rise of Pauline Hanson s One Nation Party It gives detailed statistical analysis of the truth about Hanson s supporters and political appeal, while at the same time highlighting the sorry state of politics in Australia over the last ten years.


  • David Marr as always is eloquent in his writing A clear, concise and insightful look into the rise, the fall, the rise, the fall and finally the rise into Senate by Ms Hanson.



  • If anyone tries to tell you One Nation is hugely popular and not racially obsessed, put them onto this Doubtless they won t read it, but this analysis will serve as a benchmark for many.


  • This was a great evaluation of the One Nation party and its electoral strategy Highly recommended if you want to get a greater understanding of the motivations of One Nation voter base.
