Donald Horne is one of Australia's most admired respected and popular intellectuals. There has hardly been a sphere in which he has not had some influence political, artistic, commercial, educational, literary.
Over the course of his writing career Horne has attempted to induce Australians to think about themselves. No other body of work has done as much to map our social and cultural consciousness.
P>Into the Open is his beautifully elicited memoir witty, elegant, incisive of the people, events and organisations that signpost the highway of Horne's life in the last decades of the twentieth century: from Frank Packer and The Bulletin to Bob Askin, Gough Whitlam, Pal Keating, Pauline Hanson and dozens of other Australians; from journalism and advertising to universities, the Australia Council and republicanism.With Into the Open Donald Horne holds nothing back: as a candid account of the behaviour of people who work in the worlds of ideas and influence it will enlighten, entertain and provoke.
