This series dealing with change in Australia began as a single post. This was far too long, so I have broken it into a number of shorter posts.
The trigger for the series is a recent series of campaigning articles by the Sydney Morning Herald, articles that have helped generate a range of associated coverage on topics such as Sydney's decline, White flight and the problems of NSW's Aboriginal communities.
I dealt with this in an opinion piece, Economic and demographic change, education, ethnicity and the maintenance of social cohesion in Australia. I wasn't impressed. I thought, among other things, that the paper's somewhat sensational approach had trivialised serious problems without providing real solutions.
So this series sets out my response. A list of posts follows. Supporting references are included at the end of each post.
