Four hundred Australians across the country shared their experiences of work, family, parenting and study for this book, creating a striking picture of Australian society as a new millennium begins. Meticulously researched, the volume presents a counter-argument to the regime of economic reform. Michael Pusey's sequel is as controversial as his best-selling Economic Rationalism in Canberra.
