Contributions to books
Brotherhood research staff have been contributing authors for books on social policy and other research areas published in Australia and overseas. Recent titles are listed below.
Smyth, P & Buchanan, J (eds) 2013, Inclusive growth in Australia: social policy as economic investment, Allen & Unwin, Sydney.
This book overturns two decades of assumptions that social policy is wasteful and a source of dependency. With contributions from national and international experts including Marian Baird, Grant Belchambers, Gerald Burke, Saul Eslake, Roy Green and Peter Whiteford, Inclusive growth in Australia shows that welfare spending is as much an economic investment as a measure of social protection. Its contents will interest policy makers, the corporate and community sectors and students of social policy.
