"The authors of this book present diverse and persuasive arguments for a BI, specifically for Australia and New Zealand. The excellent introduction sketches history and context, and provides an overview of BI which will be invaluable both to readers new to the subject and to specialists. ... This book should be open on the desk of every politician and policymaker in the region." (Jonathan Barrett, Labour & Industry, Vol. 26 (4), 2016)
