              This book considers key assumptions underlying research on women and enterprise bargaining, in light of unique qualitative data from the banking sector. Previous research in this field has argued that women workers will approach enterprise bargaining in a distinctly different man...ner to men workers. A drawback associated with much of this research however, has been its sole emphasis on women workers, without a concurrent analysis of 'male' approaches to bargaining or indeed, a refined definition of what would constitute 'male' bargaining. This book positions enterprise bargaining preferences in the context of literature on narrative identities. Four distinctly different narrative identities are found among men and women managers - the bureaucratic career narrative, diplomatic, classic market narrative and institutional market narrative. In particular, acuity of risk and strategies to minimise risk are handled differently by each of the narrative identities.

              Whenever society produces a depraved criminal, we wonder: is it nature or is it nurture? When the charlatan Alicks Sly murdered his wife, Ellie, and killed himself with a cut-throat razor in a house in Sydney's Newtown in early 1904, he set off a chain of events that could answer... that question. He also left behind mysteries that might never be solved. Sociologist Dr Tanya Bretherton traces the brutal story of Ellie, one of many suicide brides in turn-of-the-century Sydney; of her husband, Alicks, and his family; and their three orphaned sons, adrift in the world. From the author of the acclaimed THE SUITCASE BABY - shortlisted for the 2018 Ned Kelly Award, Danger Prize and Waverley Library 'Nib' Award - comes another riveting true-crime case from Australia's dark past. THE SUICIDE BRIDE is a masterful exploration of criminality, insanity, violence and bloody family ties in bleak, post-Victorian Sydney.
