The Monthly April 2021


In the April issue, award-winning journalist and photographer Andrew Quilty returns to the scene of Australian war crimes in Afghanistan, and his major photo-essay feature uncovers alarming evidence of dozens of unreported incidents and deaths caused by our special forces.

Margaret Simons investigates the Murray–Darling Basin wars, and why billions of dollars in government subsidies have been spent but the river is still running dry. James Bradley describes the plight of Australia’s most remarkable creature, the platypus. Anthony Ham meets innovator, restaurateur and all-round dreamer Joost Bakker. And we review Mark McKenna’s new history of Uluru, as well as the acclaimed film Judas and the Black Messiah. Plus Australian politics, arts, music and much more.
