RRP $457.99

This book examines how businesses manage their labour systems, and particularly how they manage the complex interaction of factors which give rise to instances of 'partnership' style relations between businesses and their employees. The book draws from the literature concerning 'Varieties of Capitalism' (VoC) and the different institutional and regulatory designs inherent in different types of political economy. The book is informed by a new and extensive set of empirical data from Australia that examines the activities of national and multinational business corporations, their outlooks and relationships with stakeholders, and relates these to new and evolving theoretical frameworks based in political economy and law. The book places the Australian regulatory model within this international debate, and assesses the extent to which the system does or does not fit into the general categorisation created in the VoC literature.

But he is distracted from his search by the thoughts of the stunning woman he saw bathing in the river just before they entered the village.

Dr. Johanna Smith is an environmental researcher on a missionary project, working with a village in the Australian Outback. When armed men enter the village looking for stolen information-blaming two men from the research group-they take the group captive, but Johanna manages to remain hidden. As she searches for a way to liberate her team, she finds herself drawn to a handsome stranger whom she meets nightly at the river-unaware he is the same man holding her colleagues hostage. As their feelings for each other grow, only time will tell whether the secrets they keep from each other will tear their love apart, or whether their all-consuming passion will bring them back into each other's arms.

In this romantic thriller, a research scientist and a man on a mission to recover stolen data find themselves falling in love under unlikely circumstances in the Australian Outback.
