In this forensic examination of how we live, Andrew Leigh, one of our most exciting young thinkers, rips though Australian life and asks whether we are tightly-knit and looking out for each other, or are we all disconnected? Organisational membership records and surveys show that our society is shifting rapidly. These days, chances are you never quite get around to talking to your neighbours, or you're always too busy to give blood. In Disconnected Andrew Leigh guides us through the reasons that our social fabric has begun to fray, and outlines steps to creating a better civic and personal life.

Industry Reviews
Andrew Leigh is a rarity--an economist who can crunch numbers and write lucid, engaging prose on a subject that matters. --Adele Horin, columnist and reporter, Sydney Morning Herald
