Contesting the Australian way : states, markets, and civil society( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 227 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
Community and local governance in Australia by Andrew Jones( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Place-based policy-making' burst on the Australian scene amid a torrent of new rhetoric such as 'social capital', 'community capacity', and 'community engagement'. Many wondered what substance lay beneath the rhetorical froth - if any. This is the first book to offer an overview of place-based policy making in Australia, putting it in an international context." "This collection guides readers through the issues, the research and the literature surrounding place-based policy-making as it pulls together what the editors see as the durable building blocks of this new era of policy making. The book's most pressing recommendation is for new 'post-contract state' forms of associative or networked governance."--Jacket
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 )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 48 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

The Brotherhood's social barometer : monitoring children's chances by Rosanna Scutella( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Inequality is increasing in our society despite the increasing wealth of the employed and property owners. This inequality is having a particularly detrimental effect on our children. Children from disadvantaged backgrounds are much more prone to physical and mental health problems. While the majority continue to move ahead, too many children - especially indigenous children and those from low-income families - are being left behind. Whereas the European Union and countries such as Canada have made the elimination of child poverty an explicit goal, there is no similar commitment from Australian governments. Child poverty has slipped off the agenda and no alternative measures of disadvantage have emerged to take its place. With indicators of our prosperity gaining regular attention, it becomes easy to forget how many children's futures are being compromised
