‘Australia Reimagined: Towards a More Compassionate, Less Anxious Society’
Hugh Mackay, social historian and author

Hugh Mackay, distinguished Australia social researcher, believes that despite 26 years of uninterrupted economic growth, Australia is experiencing a worsening societal crisis. Income inequality is widening, we no longer trust our political leaders, and people are more anxious and socially fragmented than ever. In Australia Re-imagined, (published in 2018) Hugh provides an uplifting and passionate reflection on where we’ve gone wrong and how to build a more compassionate and cohesive society./p>
