Allen & Unwin 237575 Australia 1996 Second Edition 1864481609 / 9781864481600 Softcover Very Good Condition In an era of cut-backs, privatisations, corporatisations and out-sourcing, the challenges and responsibilities of a manager in the public sector have never been greater.

Unfinished Business: Paul Keating's Interrupted Revolution, David Love
8 David Love Unfinished Business: Paul Keating's Interrupted Revolution
Scribe 235211 Melbourne 2008 1921372192 / 9781921372193 Softcover Very Good Condition In the early 1980s, Paul Keating set out to reinvent the Australian economy. He floated the Australian dollar, liberated banking and finance from its regulatory shackles, and - most significantly - introduced a universal superannuation scheme. The results were astounding growth in the value of our national economy and in the personal wealth of ordinary Australians. Keating's revolution was based on his insight that, by encouraging all of us to save for retirement, a huge pool of investment capital would be created that would help enrich the nation. But the fulfilment of his vision was denied by his political opponents after the Australian people voted Keating out in 1996. In this book, David Love, a veteran economic and financial observer, explores the story of Keating's revolution - a story that has never before been fully told - and sounds a timely warning that the failure to finish the job Keating started has left our new-found prosperity vulnerable, particularly in the current climate of international economic uncertainty. The revolution, it turns out, is at least as relevant to the future as it has been to the past 265 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Suffrage to Sufferance: A Hundred Years of Women in Politics, Janine Haines
18 Janine Haines Suffrage to Sufferance: A Hundred Years of Women in Politics
Allen & Unwin 227494 Australia 1992 1863733655 / 9781863733656 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket It is almost 100 years since women were given the right to vote in New Zealand and, unintentionally, the right to sit in parliament in South Australia. This book covers all this period to the present. It highlights the accounts of women - some well-known but many unknown - without whose bravery, determination and belief in the rights of women, it would still not be possible for women to own property, have custody of their children, be paid the same as men for doing the same work, be allowed to stay in the work-force after marriage, or be entitled to say "no" to sex once married. This book aims to show how recent the struggle for women's rights has been, how hard it was to achieve even small gains - like the right to vote, make a will or get a divorce - and to remind readers that, with only 7% of MPs in English-speaking parliaments being women, there is still a lot more to achieve. 210 pages.
