A landmark investigation of Australia's ethical track record - that also shows how you can make a difference. Climate change is wreaking havoc. Water shortages are a permanent fixture. The nuclear debate is getting nasty. Every few weeks a new story about the horrors of battery hens hits the papers. It's hard to buy a pair of trainers without thinking about the 12 year old who made them and imagining the kind of conditions in which she is working. Sometimes so much seems to be going wrong with the world that it's hard to kw how to do the right thing. In this lively, witty and important book, Julian Lee takes the ethical temperature of Australia. Along the way he takes us on a whistle-stop tour of the main stakeholders in the drive for better living in this country, from organic farmers and fast-food franchises to ethical investors and fair-trade gurus. He explains how to separate the fraudsters from the ethical firebrands - and along the way he establishes how every one of us can make a difference.
Julian Lee is Marketing Reporter for the Sydney Morning Herald. He was born and brought up in the UK. After working his way up the journalistic ladder in London, he wrote regularly for The Times before moving to Sydney with his Australian wife in 2003.
