This book puts middle Australia under the microscope, examining how quality of life is faring in the face of change and uncertainty. 400 Australians from around the country shared their experiences of work, family, and community for this book, creating a striking picture of Australian society into a new millennium. This lived experience is set against hard data so that we can truly understand the impact - good and bad - of economic restructuring on the broad Australian middle class. Meticulously researched, it mounts a moral and intellectual counter-argument to economic reform. A sequel to the best-selling Economic Rationalism in Canberra, Michael Pusey's book will be equally important.

Reviews

Michael Pusey (Author of The Experience of Middle Australia)

Michael Pusey: I think the redneck talkback hosts and The Australian and other media sources that I don't trust, setting up vicious resentments between the baby boomers and their children and telling the children that they've been ripped off, that the baby boomers have walked away with all their goodies, that they've been left with nothing, just social divisions of a very unpleasant kind. That would be a tragedy because it's shaping up the other way, of understanding incorporation and care.
