The Monthly July issue 2022


The recent federal election result upended Australian politics, and the July issue weighs up the implications. Don Watson looks at the challenging road ahead for the new government. George Megalogenis writes about the future of the Liberal party. And in the broad level of support for climate action Rebecca Huntley sees a way to end the climate wars. (Not so fast, writes Royce Kurmelovs, after attending the fossil-fuel industry’s annual conference.)

Elsewhere in this issue, Josh Bornstein writes about the state of the ABC after years of cuts and political pressure; Jenny Valentish learns firsthand how easy it is to acquire banned sports supplements; and Nam Le presents a new poem from his acclaimed “Melbourne” series. We visit the Venice Biennale, the bold architecture of Bundanon, and a new solo exhibition at AGNSW. Plus books, film and more.
