Perish the thought

Dear Editor,
Mark Triffitt's review of George Megalogenis's Australia's Second Chance: What our history tells us about our future and Balancing Act (May 2016) left me uninspired to read either work (ABR, May 2016). Megalogenis's ideas were described, and perhaps explained to some degree, but Dr Triffitt offered little critical analysis, presumably because he agrees with Megalogenis. Far from being a 'bold and innovative re-writing of our nation's history', Australia's Second Chance seems like a re-hash of the old 'populate or perish' idea, which I had assumed any thinking observer would regard as problematic.
