Age of paradox ( Visual )

Management philosopher Charles Handy looks at the revolution in the workplace, which is providing both opportunity and anxiety.

With retirement likely at age 45, new skills are needed to survive
Images of women ( Visual )
in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Panel includes: Anne Deveson (Chair, National Working Party on the Portrayal of Women), Matt Carroll (film and TV producer), and John Singleton (advertising executive)
The hungry spirit ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Maxine McKew conducts an interview with management consultant Charles Handy, who in the mid-1980s forecast and advocated the changes to organisational structure and behavior that have taken place in the last ten years, for example downsizing, outsourcing and team ways of working. Handy now believes organisations have gone too far in this direction to their detriment, as more and more workers are becoming disillusioned by lack of security and erosion of working conditions in return for keeping their jobs, compared with the massive wealth and power accumulated by CEOs, and this situation in turn is leading to large-scale social inequity and unease. Handy asserts that people in the mid-1990s are yearning for something beyond materialism and an economically driven society labouring under the demands of unfettered capitalism. His new book, entitled "The hungry spirit", presents these ideas

Tales from the political trenches by Maxine McKew ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the 2007 federal election former journalist Maxine McKew won a spectacular victory against John Howard and wrote herself into Australian political history as only the second candidate to have ever defeated a sitting prime minister in his constituency seat. She was part of the Kevin '07 juggernaut, which dismissed the Howard Government after eleven years of power. She believed in the ideas and aspirations of their leader, Kevin Rudd. But then his own party brought him, as a first term Prime Minister, down... In Tales from the Political Trenches, Maxine brings a reporter's eye and an insider's knowledge to a story that has caused despair among Labor supporters and produced mass disillusionment among the voting public. McKew was one of the many political casualties of the disastrous 2010 election campaign, when Labor was left clinging to the wreckage and forced into minority government.Still dealing with her own disappointments in a political career cut short by the machinations within her own party, and with more questions than answers, McKew has spent the past year going back to her colleagues in an effort to understand what went wrong. Tales from the Political Trenches is a must-read for those who have followed the fratricidal events of the past few years and are still asking 'what the hell happened?

Costing the community ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Discusses the sense of belonging to a community and the breakdown of social values. Should people behave as individuals looking to maximise their personal advantage, or are they social beings with rights and responsibilities to fellow citizens? Government emphasis on economic competition and rationalism has created a social crisis, creating a sense of unconnectedness. Eva Cox argues that the social must be put back into political decisions, as excess market forces and competition has divided us, but is the government and society inclined to change?

In what's understood to be a legal first, Gunns is suing Australian Greens leader Bob Brown and 19 other activists and environmental groups for $6.3 million in damages. The company alleges they've been unlawfully interfering with its trade and business for years and giving Gunns a bad name. But conservationists say the writs are an unprecedented attack on free speech and their right to protest." -- ABC website
