Product Overview

The 1950s undeniable prosperity has become synonymous with conservatism, and inertia seen as its hallmark. This book offers a fresh and challenging interpretation of the 1950s in Australia. Nicholas Brown presents the decade as a time of great change, brought about by affluence. Society became increasingly complex, mass consumption reached new heights and Australias role in the world and the region was re-cast. The book looks at the ways in which those overseeing society responded to these post-war changes; in short, how they governed prosperity. A history of ideas as well as cultural, intellectual and institutional history, Governing Prosperity is a major reassessment of the 1950s. It will be particularly important for its analysis of the significance of the decade in the development of Australian society. *Author: Brown, Nicholas *Series Title: Studies in Australian History *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 312 *Publication Date: 1995/01/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 6.00 x 9.00 x 0.70 inches
