Earth and Industry : stories from Gippsland by Erik Eklund( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How have individuals and communities responded to change, and how have they interacted with the physical environments around them? This book assembles contributions that examine the historic and contemporary relations of people and the environment in an area - specifically, Gippsland in Victoria, Australia. The book is built upon a many-layered history of environmental modifications and on the cusp of rapid economic and social change. It takes account of Aboriginal and 'white' relations, 'old' and 'new' forms of pastoralism and agriculture, water and coastal management and fishing, mining and industrialization, forestry, heritage management, and increasing political tensions in relation to the environment. The result is a story of challenges, hardships, and conflicts, as well as resourcefulness and innovation. Earth and Industry: Stories from Gippsland offers an encompassing portrait of this Australian region, exploring its historical, social, and geographical diversity. It takes the reader to parts of the region which belie the predominant media image of the smoke stacks of the Latrobe Valley. It will be of interest to those seeking to understand the complex interplay of 'country' and 'city' within a world of international economic connections and flows

The state of welfare : comparative studies of the welfare state at the end of the long boom, 1965--1980 by Joanne Scott( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period after 1945 saw a rapid growth in social welfare, with the state taking on increasing responsibility for pensions, health care, unemployment relief and income support. In Western democracies economic growth underpinned state investment and was reinforced by demands from the new social movements of the 1960s. Just as the clamour for reformism reached a crescendo in the late 1960s, the global economy began to falter, culminating in the oil crisis of 1973-1974. This volume explores the factors that shaped the trajectories of welfare state change over this crucial period. A close analysis of countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom reveals signs of a broader shift towards the decline of government spending and the first tentative moves towards a nascent neoliberalism. Other countries, such as Sweden and West Germany, remained comparatively untouched by the economic crisis and even sought to reinforce their welfare state in response to it. Ireland and Northern Ireland also showed little evidence of these changes, isolated as they were by complex political and religious factors. This book brings together a range of case studies at both country and provincial level in order to build up a more complex and nuanced picture of the welfare state in the 1960s and 1970s. --
Steel town : the making and breaking of Port Kembla by Erik Eklund( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Steel Town illuminates our understanding of the processes of industrial and social change. Port Kembla was unique in Australian terms - an urban environment where industrial society shaped local life and politics like nowhere else. This book explores the advent and implications of industrial society - and the impact of economic decline and deindustrialisation." "In his comprehensive and persuasive account of local life, Erik Eklund draws together themes of migration, gender, class and identity. Using archival records, oral history interviews and company documents, Steel Town charts the relationship between economic change and the human experience of that change."--Jacket
