On Privilege

Author(s): BURNSIDE Julian


Julian Burnside's grandparents lived in a world of handsome cars, elegant tennis parties and coiffed women. As a five-year-old, he saw privilege before he heard the word or learned its meaning. In this powerful broadside that takes in politicians and infamous legal cases, Burnside asks: what is privilege and who has it?
