Dr Alastair Greig is a Reader in Sociology at The Australian National University. His association with the Murramarang area sprang from his parents’ decision to locate the family caravan at Pretty Beach. Since residential vans were removed from the site, early in the new millennium, Alastair has been a member of ANU Kioloa Advisory Board. His books include The Australian Way of Life (2013), Challenging Global Inequality (2007), Inequality in Australia (2003) and The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of (1995). He is the recipient of numerous national and ANU teaching awards, as well as, most recently, the Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Campus Community.
