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.
Prime Ministers in Power
Author: Mark Bennister
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
"Prime Ministers in Power investigates prime ministerial predominance in Britain and Australia. It is a timely addition to the scholarly material on political leadership, adding a comparative dimension by using case study analysis of two prime ministers in similar political systems. How did these two prime ministers establish such predominant positions? How far can prime ministers stretch the institutions within which they work and how much of an impact does the office-holder have on the office? What conclusions can be drawn from the comparison of the two prime ministers? What are the consequences and costs of such predominance?"--publisher website.
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.
Women in Executive Power

A comprehensive regional study of women in the political executive power.
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.
In the relation of states, treaties are a matter of great importance. The law of treaties and the study of treaty-making procedures in municipal law systems have become both from a theoretical and practical point of view, subjects of increasing interest. The United Nations Legal Committee as well as the International Law Commission have published studies concerned with the relationship of international law and municipal law, emphasizing national practices concerning the conclusion of treaties. In the case of some countries, such as Great Britain and the United States, numerous studies of treaty making problems have been made, but much less has been published in the case of many other countries such as Australia, Canada or India. In the case of Australia, research on treaty-making has resulted in comparatively few published articles in scholarly and legal journals and only a few comments in general legal treatises. But no comprehen sive legal analysis of the subject has as yet appeared. This study aims to present a comprehensive survey and analysis of actual treaty making procedures and practices in Australia against the setting of the relevant constitutional and other legal norms of the Australian political system. The analysis of treaty-making will consider both normative and empirical legal aspects. Basic constitutional norms, legal principles derived from common and constitutional law and statutes will be discussed, as well as the actual practices and procedures used in the exercise of the treaty-making power.
