Social differentiation in Australian cities

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Contemporary Australian society is highly urbanised. Therefore social differentiation in our cities largely subsumes the broader question of divisions within society generally. Australia has for long been portrayed as unusually egalitarian, with no entrenched class divisions. However, this image bears little resemblance to the actual distribution of wealth, privilege or power in today's affluent urban society. The purpose of this paper is to explore the basis of social differentiation in Australian cities and to show how that differentiation is constituted geographically. -Author
