Robert Dawson’s A Democratic Way to Australia’s Republic is the result of many years of consideration, evaluation and analysis of the options for the Australian people in deciding how the nation could become a republic

Whether you agree or disagree, Mr. Dawson raises a number of valid issues and options in taking a fresh look at the republic question.

What makes his book different from some of the academically driven or politically motivated books and articles about Australia becoming a republic is that Mr. Dawson comes from neither of those areas but has a very practical working background both as an engineer and in community organisations.

If you like, it’s very much a “view of the people” approach taking into consideration some of the concerns, fears and speculations about a President of Australia and what powers that person might have.
