Crowded Lives
By Lindsay Tanner

Crowded Lives takes up what most politics misses. Lindsay Tanner taps into and connects a range of issues that cause ordinary people to feel disconnected from their communities: from increasing loneliness and depression to the clash between family and work; from unaccountable service in the private and public sectors, to family breakdown.

Crowded Lives offers an original plan for social sustainability, fortifying the relationships that give meaning to our lives.

Politics, according to author Lindsay Tanner, is failing to address this contradiction. The quality of our relationships is the fundamental ingredient missing from Australian politics and public debate. Politicians and policy-makers need to put strengthening of social relationships at the top of the public agenda- or put the health and welfare of us all at risk.

Author Lindsay Tanner is the Federal Member for Melbourne and the author of The Last Battle and Open Australia, and co-author of The Politics of Pollution.
