111 indexed pages. State of the Nation looks back over the past century and provides an important historical view on key indicators of Australia's performance. It tells the bad news - rising crime, increased family breakdown, more unemployment, higher taxes - but also points to the successes of increased life expectancy, improving health and rising average incomes. This major ClS reference text also provides a snapshot of social and cultural life in Australia, with a section on sport, TV, cinema and other forms of entertainment. Dr Lucy Sullivan is a Research Fellow at the CIS. Barry Maley is Senior Fellow at the CIS and Director of the Taking Children Serious/y program. Michael Warby is Public Attairs Manager at the Tasman Institute.
