Right and Wrong

Hugh Mackay
Authors:
Hugh Mackay

How can you be sure you're doing the right thing? Can some actions be legally right, yet morally wrong? What are the rights and wrongs of leaving a relationship? Are the rules different for sex? Is it always wrong to tell a lie? Why be good?No one pretends that making moral choices is easy. In this updated edition, which includes a new prologue on the moral minefields of power and wealth, Hugh Mackay argues that because morality is all about the way we treat each other, we make our best decisions - at work, among friends, in the neighbourhood, in a marriage or a family - when we imagine how our actions might affect the wellbeing of others. Our moral choices actually help shape the kind of society we live in, for better or worse.At a time when many of us are struggling to navigate an ever more complex world, Right & Wrong offers you the essential tools for making confident moral choices, and for deciding what's right for you and for the people around you.

Sixteen years ago, Hugh Mackay wrote the bestseller Reinventing Australia that analysed, with forensic skill, what was happening to Australianr society. Now, in Advance Australia...Where? he takes another long, hard look at Australian society. While Australia enjoys unprecedented levels of prosperity and the promise of more to come, it is still battling an epidemic of depression, taking on record levels of debt, and yearning for a deeper sense of meaning. While many Australians complain about feeling powerless and isolated, Mackay sees some encouraging signs that Australians are learning how to absorb the impact of the revolutionary changes that have reshaped it.This is a book for anyone who cares about Australia, from the pen of Australia's most highly respected social researcher.
