Join Australian history professors Marilyn Lake and Stuart MacIntyre for a discussion of the paradox of progressivism and its continued fascination, one hundred years on.

In a bold new argument, Professor Marilyn Lake’s new book, Progressive New World, points to the significance of turn-of-the-twentieth-century exchanges between American and Australasian reformers.
