Summary

This book explores the wellbeing of rural Australians in the areas of health, education and family. It integrates views on theory, research and policy, presented by academics, researchers, administrators and practitioners. The papers included in this volume were initially presented in the conference "Rural Australia: Towards 2000" held at Charles Sturt University in July 1997. They were carefully selected from a large number of contributions, and are the ones which survived a thorough scrutiny as well as review, editing and adjustment, to fit the overall theme of this publication. This book offers ample information as well as a basis for further research, critical analysis and rural social policies.
