The Monthly February issue 2021
Under Scott Morrison, a lack of accountability has become systemic, writes editor Nick Feik, in an investigation of the government's ceaseless run of scandals. But political impropriety isn't just a federal problem: Lech Blaine also relays the incredible tale of the corruption of former Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale.
Micheline Lee describes the revealing effects of the COVID pandemic upon the disabled community. Mark McKenna writes about the uncomfortable shadow of Australian war crimes over the expansion of the Australian War Memorial. And James Bradley explores the remarkable history and ecological value of oysters.
In Arts & Letters, we meet rising star of the art world Vincent Namatjira, review the new Australian film High Ground, explore the remarkable new ABC nature series Australia Remastered and survey the remarkable career of Kylie Minogue. Plus much more.
