Community and local governance in Australia by Paul Smyth ( )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines the resurgence in Australia of locality-based social policy (concerned with the spatial dimensions of disadvantage), after the political failures of the market oriented approach to regional reform. The book proposes that these trends are leading to a new 'post-competition' policy regime in Australia that mirrors global policy trends
Social policy in Australia : understanding for action ( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contesting the Australian way : states, markets, and civil society ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the 1980s public policy has been perceived as being in a crisis of uncertainty, the result of a century of protectionist policies inaugurated in a so-called 'Australian settlement'. We are told that consolidating the market imperative, both in economic and social policy, is the way out of this crisis. In this book, a leading group of writers challenge this view, calling for reassertion of a 'mixed' rather than a purely 'market' economy and reaffirmation of the egalitarianism that has characterised past Australian social policy
Social policy and the commonwealth : prospects for social inclusion ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers insight into the operations of the Commonwealth and, more importantly, into the contrasting experiences of member states within it. Introductory overviews of British (socio-imperial) policy tradition, together with concepts of social exclusion/inclusion, prepare the way for a series of case-studies."--Jacket

Blogging from the battlefield : the view from the front line in Afghanistan by Paul Smyth ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Front Line Bloggers and the Helmand Blog (now combined as UK Forces Afghanistan) were set up by the Permanent Joint Headquarters (PJHQ) to allow British armed forces personnel to tell the public back home what they were doing there, in their own words. Personnel of all ranks from all three services, representing a wide variety of trades - infantry, signals, logistics, aviation, medical - as well as civilians, contributed their thoughts and experiences on everything from what it's like to take on the Taliban in a firefight to the challenges of trying to cook a meal at a patrol base. Taking the six-month deployment of Operation Herrick 11, the codename for the British campaign, as illustrative of British involvement in Helmand, these personal accounts give a picture of the conflict at ground level, the details of daily life that usually do not make the news, as well as individuals' perspectives on major events. With the conflict in Afghanistan in the public eye almost constantly, this is a timely book that tells the real story of what it's like for those men and women serving their country in a far-away land

Social investment in human capital revisioning Australian social policy by Paul Smyth ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"In 2006, the Council of Australian Governments accepted the proposition that a third wave of national economic reform was needed, but acknowledged that it would require major new investment in human capital in order to achieve greater economic participation and productivity. Could this provide the occasion for a sorely needed reinvention of social policy and its reintegration with economic policy? The aspiration for reintegration has informed European public policy for some time. However, the policy commentaries indicate that the goal of a greater harmony between economic and social goals is proving elusive. This paper takes account of the reasons for this failure but finds that, properly understood, the concepts of social investment and human capital potentially provide key building blocks for a successful reintegration of economic and welfare policy in Australia."-- Introduction
