Fault Lines: Race, Work, and the Politics of Changing Australia
This investigation presents an in-depth review of the shifting demographics, the political handling of race-related issues, and the work-family challenges that are contributing to the changing face of Australia. Drawing upon 2001 Australian census data and the personal experiences of one who grew up in a migrant worker family, the book examines the fault lines of gender, race, and work at the root of divisiveness, as well as the seemingly contradictory attitudes in the nation's political and cultural makeup. Among the issues explored are the government's pro-immigration policies in the face of an apparently unsympathetic stance against asylum seekers and the dearth of women in upper management positions in business, the government, and the media.
