The forces driving the first decades of the 21st century - globalization, technology, and unprecedented wealth mixed with jarring economic instability - are pushing the day of retirement later and later in life. The era of the aging worker is here. From the rice paddies of Japan to the heart of the American rust-belt, veteran international correspondent Joseph Coleman takes readers inside the lives of aging workers, exploring the factories, offices, and fields where they toil and the societies in which they live, giving the reader a front-row seat to the global older worker revolution. Profiles of individuals bring to life Coleman's exploration of how the United States - along with many countries around the world - deal with the rise of aging workforces. Throughout these stories, the author gives advice on how societies can best benefit from and assist their increasingly older population. Readers will come to know: * Michel Wattree, a retired French trucker who has founda second life as an elementary school bus driver and still nurses dreams of driving America's storied Route 66. * The aging crew of Japan's Yamashita Kogyosho, where for half a century they have crafted the world's fastest trains with their bare hands and hammers, exemplifies Japan's adaptive employment strategies that have helped the country deal with one of the oldest demographic compositions in the world. * Rita Hall, an unemployed hospital worker from Akron, Ohio, who hopes that a job training program will save her from spending the rest of her golden years in poverty - a fear shared by many who will far outlive their retirement savings. Amidst the stories of how these works are working hard to adapt, Unfinished Work probes the struggles of companies either unable or unwilling to accommodate the aging of their workforces and the quandaries of governments and policymakers eager to control pension pay-outs to retiring boomers, yet unsure how to keep them on the job. What emerges is a compassionate but clear-eyed portrait of a world in the midst of a slow-motion aging revolution that will have vast consequences for present and coming generations.

Coughlin, a Catholic priest from an industrial suburb near Detroit.

"In 1991, the Hawke Government aimed to reconcile Indigenous and non-Indigenous people by implementing a ten-year reconciliation process. Its three broad goals concerned the education of the wider community, Indigenous socio-economic disadvantage, and a document of reconciliation." "The following decade of reconciliation saw some significant achievements. Hundreds of community reconciliation groups were established. Hundreds of thousands of people participated in the Reconciliation Walks in 2000. The wider Australian community developed a greater awareness of Indigenous issues. But neither the aim nor its three goals were successfully achieved. Further, several political goals of Indigenous people were not adequately addressed, including sovereignty, self-determination, a treaty and land rights." "Unfinished Business is the first book to explore the 1991 2000 reconciliation process. It analyses the process s successes and failures and the factors that affected it, making a substantial contribution to our understandings of reconciliation in Australia."--BOOK JACKET.
At a time when liberalism is in disarray, this vastly illuminating book locates the origins of its crisis. Those origins, says Alan Brinkley, are paradoxically situated during the second term of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whose New Deal had made liberalism a fixture of American politics and society. The End of Reform shows how the liberalism of the early New Deal—which set out to repair and, if necessary, restructure America’s economy—gave way to its contemporary counterpart, which is less hostile to corporate capitalism and more solicitous of individual rights. Clearly and dramatically, Brinkley identifies the personalities and events responsible for this transformation while pointing to the broader trends in American society that made the politics of reform increasingly popular. It is both a major reinterpretation of the New Deal and a crucial map of the road to today’s political landscape.
