Interpersonal relations.; Interpersonal relations - Australia.; Social change - Australia.
A forensic examination of Australian life, this insightful book suggests that contemporary society has lost touch with its communities and its people. Written from an economist's perspective and based on organizational membership records and surveys, it presents the reasons why the social fabric has begun to fray and outlines the necessary steps to create a better civic and personal life. Distilling various aspects of Australian routine--including religion, sport, and employment--this book reveals what is being lost and how to get it back.

Prime Minister's comment at the Book Launch 26th October 2010 at Parliament House:

"Like Putnam's seminal book Bowling Alone, Disconnected is a revealing snapshot of where Australian society stands in 2010. Revealing and disturbing because it clearly shows that our incredible accumulation of wealth and personal freedom has been accompanied by a loss of community."
