In his bestselling books THE WORLD FROM ITALY and THE WORLD FROM ISLAM, George Negus gave us his unique, ′Australian internationalist′ perspective on issues as varied as football and the Muslim faith. Now, in THE WORLD FROM DOWN UNDER, he tackles the big issues of the day, the things which concern, perplex and provoke us.
George takes on climate change, poverty, war, indigenous affairs, politics, philanthropy, the role of women - and some lighter stuff. He talks about how Australia is regarded by the rest of the world and how the rest of the world is seen by us.
He draws on his own travels and his extensive journalistic background, and he brings in some of the things he′s learned from the world′s movers and shakers. He will tell you what you wanted to know about the world′s big issues - and all the things no one else has told you.
