When property developers, politicians, and a vocal community debate how local land should be used – with the media intent on exposing conflicting interests and incompatible ideologies – it is only a matter of time before plans change and careers take new paths. Written as an engaging account of Australian politics and coastal property development in Fremantle, To the Beach is a creative non-fiction account of the politics of ecological crisis in Australia. To the Beach encourages readers to reflect on perceptions of environmental threats and solutions, and it describes how environmental movements form around a shared desire to live a local experience – in this case, the experience is Australia's beaches. To the Beach will be a useful scholarly resource and an engaging study for readers with an interest in Australian politics and culture, particularly at the nexus of property development and environmental activism.
