Description

Part travelogue, part forensic investigation of the national psyche, this account boldly takes its reader to where many have spent the bulk of their lives - the core of the great Australian ordinariness. Asking what constitutes the average Australian, and armed with the latest statistical tools, Jonathan Green sets out to locate the one person that most embodies Australia's most commonly shared values. All aspects of life fall victim to Green's scrutiny - health, education, sex, work, leisure, and politics - who ultimately asks how, in this age of mass aspiration and consumer assimilation, we can also identify it as the moment of the individual.show more
