Changing Australia

Changing Australia

Social, cultural and economic trends

By Kevin Andrews and Michelle Curtis


The Australia of today is a very different country to that of fifty years ago. This book shows how different.

From a firm base of statistics, it documents the major social, cultural and economic trends since World War II. Burrowing into the everyday world of who Australians are and how they live, the authors pick out significant, sometimes dramatic, change. Trends show up clearly, often widely acknowledged, occasionally surprising, but always providing pointers and raising questions as to the directions of the country’s development in the future.

A fascinating account written in a clear and lively style.
