In The Big Shift, author Bernard Salt provides an articulate interpretation of the settlement of the Australian continent, charting the shifts and shuffles that have made us who we are over the past 200 years.
Salt's insightful eye for detail and sheer breadth of knowledge of Australia are brought to bear in this bold and landmark outlook for a nation and its people in the early decades of the 21st Century.
The Big Shift tracks demographic and cultural change in Australia. Where do most Australians live? What are the top ten growth municipalities? Why will baby boomers never grow old?
The book is pacey, and sometimes edgy, as it interprets new directions in the shaping of this nation and its people.
