Community and Local Governance in Australia
Paul Smyth, Tim Reddel, Andrew Jones
UNSW Press, 2005 - Political Science - 266 pages
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.
