A Future for Regional Australia: Escaping Global Misfortune by Ian Gray, Geoffrey Lawrence


pdf epub fb2 djvu



This book interprets the predicament faced by Australia's regional people from their own perspective and proposes a means by which they can act together to find a secure future under globalization. It argues that neoliberalism in combination with its "real world" effects in economic policy are driving regional Australia further into social, environmental and economic decay. The book will be of great interest to all concerned about the future of regional Australia, and will make a lively and relevant text for students studying the social sciences in the countryside or in the major cities.
