Everything you need to know about domestic issues but were too afraid to ask.

Do we have a population bomb or fizzer? Will Australia run out of water? What is the triple bottom line? In 50 things You Want to Know About Global Issues... but were too afraid to ask Dr Keith Suter cut through the jargon and diplomatic talk to answer the questions you always wanted to ask about international affairs. This time he's back to answer the questions you always wanted to ask about domestic issues. Should we be forcing our children to wear school uniforms? Should capital punishment be introduced in Australia? Should there be an Australian Republic? What effect will smoking and obesity really have on us? Well known for his 'Global Notebook' segment on the popular national breakfast TV show Sunrise, Dr Suter makes sense of even the most complex issues, to give you a better understanding of what's going on in the world and Australia's place in it.
