The Executive Coloring Book
Author: Marcie Hans, Martin A. Cohen, Dennis Altman
The original adult coloring book! A New York Times bestseller when it was originally published in 1961, The Executive Coloring Book is crashing the adult coloring book party with its subversive humor. "This is me. I am an executive. Executives are important. They go to important offices and do important things. Color my underwear important." So begins the dangerously funny classic, The Executive Coloring Book. Originally published more than fifty years ago, this brief and brilliant coloring book skewers the early sixties executive set. If Mad Men made them look glamorous, The Executive Coloring Book casts them in a different hue and invites everyone in on the joke.
This comprehensive text is the first to outline both practical and theoretical approaches in making Australian foreign policy. It discusses the processes, structures and calculations involved in foreign policy making in Australia, and how these have changed under the impact of the various manifestations of globalisation.
'Australian Arts: Where the Bloody Hell are You?' was a one-day symposium in December organised by the Research Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney to consider Australia's international arts profile: 'an unfenced zoo' according to one commentator, a unique space for distinctly Australian vision, according to another.

In Leadership Material readers gain insight into how personal experiences greatly influence executive presence (EP) and help leaders become more authentic in their interactions with employees. Jones, who has coached hundreds of leaders during her 30-year career, has discovered that real executive presence results from "blending personal experiences with professional identity," and in her debut book, she offers practical guidance for leaders searching for new ways to be effective. Through compelling stories and examples taken directly from Jones' coaching sessions with leaders and their teams, readers will learn how to: Make enduring behavioral changes to increase their effectiveness and produce business results. Develop the capacity for empathy and how to read responses from individuals and groups while maintaining authority. Be present in communicating expectations to those around them. Maintain emotional equilibrium under stressful conditions. Adopt a new "leadership language" which when combined with new behaviors, shifts perceptions and creates alignment amongst disparate groups.
Alan J. Ward combines constitutional history and political science to compare all nine of Australia’s political systems, federal, state and territorial, from colonial times to the present. Guided by a model of parliamentary government drawn from comparative politics, he considers the following key topics: the selection of the government, the prime minister and cabinet; government control of the lower house; the primacy of the lower house in bicameral systems; the head of state; the influence of Australian federalism on parliamentary government; and the growth of executive democracy in Australia. Ultimately, Ward argues that as only one of Australia’s nine constitutions accurately describes parliamentary government as practiced in the country, it is a democratic imperative that the other eight be rewritten.
Women in Executive Power

A comprehensive regional study of women in the political executive power.
Gender inequality is profoundly unjust and in clear contradiction to the philosophy of the ‘fair go’. In spite of some action by recent governments, Australia has fallen behind in policy and outcomes, even as the G20 group of nations, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the International Monetary Fund are paying renewed attention to gender inequality. Tax, Social Policy and Gender presents new research on entrenched gender inequality in a comparative framework of human rights and fiscal sustainability. Ground-breaking empirical studies examine unequal returns to education for women and men, decision-making about child care by fathers and mothers, the history and gendered effects of the income tax and family payments, and women in the top 1 per cent. Contributors demonstrate how Australia’s tax, social security, child care, parental leave, education, work and retirement income policies intersect to compound gender inequality. Tax, Social Policy and Gender calls for a rethinking of equality and efficiency in tax and social policy and provides new policy solutions. It offers a pathway to achieve gender mainstreaming for women’s economic security and the wellbeing of all Australians.
