Books Info:

Disconnected free pdf As Australians, we traditionally see ourselves as friendly, relaxed and connected people. But is this an outdated stereotype? The data from our census and countless other surveys show that Australian society is shifting rapidly. These days, chances are you never quite get around to talking to your neighbours. You're always too busy to give blood. You're so tired on Sunday mornings, you just never make it to church. And as for those after-work local community meetings...If this sounds like your life, you might find that you've become Disconnected - that like most Australians, you've lost touch with your community. Andrew Leigh guides us through the causes of this corrosion of relationships, and towards a vision for a better civic and personal life.
