AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In Canberra, the planners have gone berserk. Infill development has taken over parks, backyards, median strips. Real money has been replaced by plastic, controlled by the Funds Transfer Authority, whose all-pervasive computer system even monitors childrens' spending of their pocket money. Now the planners are eyeing off the toilter blocks and gas barbeques at the picnic grounds for new outfill development. But they meet some unexpectedly effective opposition from the people already there...'
