It's the Great Australian Dream- to own your own home. A staggering 85 per cent of Australians attempt it at some stage in their lives; the highest percentage in the world. Government policies, the economy and local geographical factors affect the housing choices of different generations, from the safe and sound postwar generation and the 'Baby Boomers' to 'Generation X'. This thought-provoking book raises issues vital for any consideration of equity in Australian society.show more

Review quote

"Written by two of Australia's leading housing researchers . . . this book makes an outstanding contribution to a neglected aspect of the Australian housing system: housing wealth. This is an excellent addition to the Australian housing literature. The book is well written and logically structured, which ensures that the information provided is disseminated with ease." --"Australasian Journal of Regional Studies"show more
