The Conversation has just published this piece by myself on yesterday’s demonstrations across Australia against the Liberals’ cuts to higher education and the introduction of higher fees, arguing that the Liberals have been fearful of student radicalism since the late 1960s.

Incidentally, I am giving a paper tomorrow at Flinders University on the same topic. See details here.
