Sustainability and Change in Rural Australia
Chris Cocklin, Jacqui Dibden
UNSW Press, 2005 - History - 298 pages
By addressing themes such as social and economic change, government policy and gender relations, this volume tackles the thematic complexities of sustainability. At the heart of this discussion lies a desire to understand how small rural communities have survived in the past; how they are shaped by environmental, economic and social factors at present; and how these factors will impact on their survival in the future.
