book common groundCommon Ground? Seeking an Australian Consensus on Abortion and Sex Education

Publisher: St Pauls Publications Australia

Published: September 2007

To purchase, please contact the Central Catholic Bookshop.

The voice of the Australian people on issues such as abortion and sex education can now be heard thanks to the most comprehensive research on Australian attitudes ever undertaken. The authors of this book analyse the research data and call for a rational and civilised debate on these issues. While acknowledging intractable differences, such a debate can advance social policy by building on the vast area of common ground Australians share.
