In his new book, City Life: The New Urban Australia (NewSouth Publishing, 2018), Seamus O’Hanlon, an Associate Professor at Monash University, explores the economic, social, cultural, and demographic changes in Australian cities over the last four decades.  Globalization, de-industrialization and mass immigration have changed the makeup of major cities like Sydney and Melbourne as well as smaller, regional cities, and in turn, how the nation sees itself.
