Praise for Open Minds

Open Minds is measured, informed by history and law, yet still accessible to a general audience. Bringing clear-eyed analysis to an issue too often hijacked by partisan voices, it resists the hyperbole of the right while acknowledging that academic freedom is legitimately at risk in certain contexts. Australia’s new education minister, Alan Tudge, would be well advised to read this book.’ —Australian Book Review
