Deacon here examines the complex relationships between state, gender and class during a central period of Australia's history. The book focuses on the emergence of a new middle class centrally concerned with the consolidation and extension of state bureaucratic power and professional privilege, and the ambivalent role played by the men of that class in establishing the twentieth-century managerial state and its prescriptive policies towards gender.
