2010Moore TW, 'A civic order', What Were They Thinking? : The Politics of Ideas in Australia, University of New South Wales Press, Sydney 133-174 (2010) [B1]

The first of two Chapters contributed to James Walter's ground breaking book on Australian political ideas. It covers the period 1914 - 1939. The first book of its type, it is destined to be used as a starting point for scholars in the field of History of Australian Political Thought. The book is partly based on a very large Bibliography assembled by this author over a five year period.

2010Moore TW, 'Life is not meant to be easy', What Were They Thinking? : The Politics of Ideas in Australia, University of New South Wales Press, Sydney 248-288 (2010) [B1]

The second of two Chapters contributed to James Walter's ground breaking book on Australian political ideas. It covers the period 1976 - 1993. The first book of its type, it is destined to be used as a starting point for scholars in the field of History of Australian Political Thought. The book is partly based on a very large Bibliography assembled by this author over a five year period.

2009Moore TW, 'Violations of sovereignty and regime engineering: A critique of the State Theory of Stephen Krasner', Australian Journal of Political Science, 44 497-511 (2009) [C1]

This is a comprehensive discussion of sovereignty in a high impact journal, which uses the work of a leading US theorist to highlight the need for greater understanding of the basis of International Relations. The article points out ways in which the classical theory of sovereignty has been overlooked to the detriment of the practice of global political analysis. it is based on over twenty years of theoretical research and is sole authored.

2004Moore TW, 'Melbourne and Mars: the Australian All Electric Communist Utopia', Labour History: a journal of labour and social history, No. 87 209-220 (2004) [C1]

A unique study in an A journal, this article reveals details of a hitherto virtually unknown socialist utopia written in Australia in early 1889. This is a remarkable little book, which forecasts the rise of environmental concerns such as global warming, and projects the growth of an Australian suburban society. The article demonstrates the importance of the utopian view of Edward Bellamy in the development of Australian radicalism in the late 1880s and early 1890s.
