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 new book will be equally important.

Reviews for The Experience of Middle Australia: The Dark Side of Economic Reform

'Michael Pusey's new book on The Experience of Middle Australia: The Dark Side of Economic Reform makes extensive use of social science methods ... to explore the consequences of the changes brought about by the 'economic rationalisers' ... This is a hugely worthwhile book.' Francis G. Castle, University of Edinburgh
