Beyond the Pampas In Search of Patagonia Imogen Rhia Herrad Serving as both a travelogue and a history of the Welsh settlers in Patagonia—and the indigenous people with whom they interacted—this account describes how Welsh settlers have been integrated into Argentinean society. It also tells how certain aspects of Welsh culture, including the language, have been retained. Providing a unique perspective on colonialism, religious oppression, and the pioneer spirit, this fascinating book includes the author’s personal story of resolving longstanding issues of an abusive childhood during visits to Patagonia. Imogen Rhia Herrad is a freelance writer and broadcaster. She writes programs for national and state-run German radio stations about her travels in Europe and South America, women’s politics, and history across cultures.

Excerpt: The first time I went to Patagonia, I didn’t know a soul there. I only meant to go once, for a couple of weeks, to look at the place. I didn’t know it would work its way under my skin until I would always be homesick for it, always come back to it. I didn’t know that it was going to change me, draw me out of myself. I fell in love with Patagonia from afar: with the story of the people who had left Wales a century and a half before to follow a dream and live in this place on the other side of the earth. I thought of it as Y Wladfa: the place of the Welsh settlement. Over time, I came to know its other inhabitants, who had been there before the Welsh, and who are still there today: the indigenous Tehuelche and Mapuche nations. Entirely unprepared, I stumbled upon their history, a seldom-told story of genocide five generations ago. I met freedom fighters and traumatised survivors of ethnic cleansing; people determined their culture should not die. I could not have foreseen where this journey would eventually take me as I travelled ever further into Patagonia: to a night by an open fire under the stars, deep in the foothills of the Andes.

The Colours of Corruption

Cold Sea Stories

Jacqueline Jacques

Pawel Huelle Translated by Antonia Lloyd-Jones

• Co-op available In 1893, a desperately poor cleaner named Mary witnesses a murder. Archie, one of the first artists to work for the police, draws the man she says she saw at the scene. Fascinated by Mary’s own features, Archie persuades her to sit for a portrait, but the man who buys the picture really wants to buy Mary. When he realizes he’s betrayed her, Archie takes Mary to hide with his friends without realizing the gravity of the link she provides between his wealthiest clients, the poorest slums, terrible secrets, and a violent thug now looking for him: the very man Mary described to the police. As this gripping thriller uncoils, it paints an intricate, vibrant picture of the layers of Victorian London, where the poor are commodities, criminals have nothing to lose, and the rich can buy anything.

• Author’s previous books sold more than 60,000 copies A student pedals an old Ukrainian bicycle between striking factories delivering bulletins in the tumultuous first days of the Polish Solidarity movement; a shepherd watches, unseen, as a strange figure disembarks from a pirate ship to bury a chest on the beach; a prisoner in a Berber dungeon recounts his life’s story—the failed pursuit of the world’s very first language—by scrawling in the sand on his cell floor. The characters in this mesmerizing short story collection find themselves, willingly or not, at the heart of epic narratives. Against such backdrops as the Baltic coast, Kashubian folklore, Chinese mysticism, and the 9/11 attacks, this book centers around the vision of the refugee: be it the Chechen woman carrying her newborn child across the Polish border, the survivor of the Gulag reappearing on his friends’ doorstep, or the stranger who befriends the sole resident of a ghostly Mennonite village in the final days of World War II. Offering insight into Polish and Jewish sociopolitical history, this collection is written in the style and traditions of Polish literature. Pawel Huelle is a journalist; a television producer; and a former literature, philosophy, and history professor. He is the author of nine books, including Castorp and The Last Supper, and the recipient of the Found in Translation Award. Antonia LloydJones is a full-time translator of Polish literature.

Wakool Crossing

The Chamberlain Case

A Modern-Day Investigation into the Mysterious Death of a Young Woman in 1916

The Legal Saga That Transfixed the Nation

Mike Richards

A baby disappears from a tent near Uluru in the sandy desert of central Australia. The Aboriginal trackers say she has been taken by a dingo. But, amid a mélange of sinister rumors, suspicion falls on the parents, Lindy and Michael Chamberlain. There are no eyewitnesses, no body, no confession, no motive, and, apparently, credible evidence of their innocence. Yet, Lindy is convicted of murder and her husband is convicted of concealing her crime. Providing an authoritative account of this saga, against a backdrop of Aboriginal spirituality and the Chamberlains’ own religious beliefs, this account examines the case and the evidence that subsequently emerged—blood, dingoes, clothing, and tracks—and asks disturbing questions: Why were so many convinced the Chamberlains were guilty? and How could the Australian legal system have failed so severely?

In November 1916, Hazel Hood, the beautiful 18-year-old daughter of a Riverina grazier, went to a local dance and never came home. Exploring Hazel’s mysterious disappearance and the unexplained discovery of her body a week later in the Wakool River, this study leads readers through one man’s journey to solve the puzzle of her death almost 100 years after the fact. As a child in the Mallee in the 1950s, author Mike Richards was told the story of Hazel Hood’s tragic disappearance by his grandmother, Hazel’s elder sister, who firmly believed she had been murdered. This investigative account unravels the mystery of the young woman’s disappearance from the pioneer settlement of Wakool Crossing, near the Victoria–New South Wales border, and reveals the truth about what happened to Hazel Hood. Mike Richards is a former journalist, management consultant, political scientist, and senior media executive. He is also the former deputy CEO of the Melbourne Age and a former political adviser and chief of staff for Australian Labor Party leaders. He is the author of the bestselling biography The Hanged Man: The Life and Death of Ronald Ryan and a recipient of the Ned Kelly Award for true crime.

A Tragedy in Two Acts

The Kebble Collusion

Marcus Einfeld & Teresa Brennan

10 Fateful Days in a R26 Billion Fraud

Fiona Harari

Barry Sergeant

A compelling account of the shocking scandal, this examination details the events that culminated in a respected official becoming the first Australian former superior court judge to be imprisoned. Marcus Einfeld, a former Federal Court judge and human rights champion, and his old friend Teresa Brennan, an exuberant, U.S.-based academic, had spent years building careers that exuded success. In 2006, Einfeld was caught speeding, but instead of paying a small fine, the former judge told the court that Brennan had been driving his car. In reality, she had been dead for three years. Through a chain of events that at times seemed exceedingly unlikely, Einfeld’s lie was exposed with unimaginable consequences. His world, and virtually every honor he had earned, rapidly disappeared. And, his old friend Brennan, who had died in suspicious circumstances, was suddenly, posthumously, attracting attention for all the wrong reasons. This is the remarkable story of two outstanding Australians who lived large, and, ultimately, have been bound by tragedy.

In a world of outright denial, selective amnesia, and complex financial transactions designed to confuse, obfuscate, and hide the spoils, this book unravels one of South Africa’s biggest coverups. This account tackles the shady financial dealings—a fraud that in today’s terms amounts to 26 billion Rand—following the murder of mining magnate Brett Kebble. Featuring a stellar cast of players, including top financial institutions, leading bankers, and lawyers, it painstakingly details the dirty dealing across the upper strata of the sociopolitical system to reveal the truth behind the murder.

A Journey into Porn and Censorship

Renate Klein, Janice G. Raymond, and Lynette Dumble

Focusing on the hot-button issues in the censorship debate today—from the implications of the internet revolution to arguments about raunch culture and its effects—this examination explores the politics of the adult film industry in Australia. The book suggests that both pornography and censorship need to be understood alongside 30 years of neoliberalism, a doctrine that has transformed how Australians see both the state and themselves. Providing an inside look at the pornography industry with interviews of the debate’s key players, this discussion argues that many of the issues raised by censorship and pornography manifest themselves in other contemporary political controversies, from the war on terror to the Northern Territory Intervention.

• Author’s previous books sold more than 28,000 copies • New in paper A classic text for health activists and feminists interested in the complexities of how drugs are developed, marketed, and sold to women around the world, this book reviews the unusual history of the French abortion pill RU 486.

The Tiger That Swallowed the Boy Exotic Animals in Victorian England John Simons Looking at zoological gardens, private menageries, circuses, and natural history museums, this fascinating account explores the surprising extent of the exotic-animal trade in 19th-century England and its colonies. Filled with entertaining anecdotes— from the tiger that prowled down St. George’s Street in London with a boy in its mouth and the polar bear that killed a dog in Liverpool to the kangaroos hopping around the lawns of stately homes and the boa constrictor who got loose in Tunbridge Wells—this book also shares how the animals played a key role in the project to ensure that leisure was educational. As it demonstrates how the trade was intimately connected with the tides of Empire, it will be of interest to academics and general readers alike.

Well Done, Those Men

Pozières

Memoirs of a Vietnam Veteran Third edition

The Anzac Story

Barry Heard

The capture of Pozières in 1916 was heralded as a stunning tactical victory for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, yet, for the exhausted survivors, the war-weary public, and the families of the dead and maimed, victory came at such terrible cost it seemed indistinguishable from defeat. Via letters and diaries, this account tells the stories of those men who fought at Pozières, revealing a battlefield drenched in chaos, suffering, and fear. Demonstrating how commanders struggled with a war conducted on an unprecedented scale and how the survivors witnessed appalling human tragedy and returned home as both heroes and shattered men, this chronicle uncovers the story behind the official history. Candid and devastating, this book reassesses Australia’s involvement in the Great War.

• Author’s previous books sold more than 30,000 copies In an intensely personal account, this chronicle draws on a young conscript and his comrades’ lives before, during, and after the Vietnam War. Offering an Australian perspective of the trauma that occurs after such a deeply emotional and psychological experience, this story is a vivid, piercingly honest portrayal of a postwar breakdown and recovery. This sensitive and unforgettable account of one man’s struggle through a war and a mental illness is at once a tribute to the soldiers who fought beside him and a lucid account of the horrors he faced. Barry Heard served in Vietnam as an infantryman and radio operator and suffered from post-traumatic stress syndrome after returning from the war. He is the author of Tag and The View from Connor’s Hill and the recipient of the Sir Edmund Herring Memorial Award and the Sir Weary Dunlop Prize.

Britain’s DNA

A People’s History

The Stories Behind the Legends

Alistair Moffat Foreword by Eddie Izzard

Ray Martin

Based on exciting new research involving the most wide-ranging sampling of DNA ever acquired in Britain, this account traces the genetic makeup of the British Isles and its descendants and argues that its peoples are all immigrants. As the last ice age erased any trace of more ancient inhabitants, it explains that Britain’s ancestors migrated after the glaciers retreated and the land greened once more. In an epic narrative, this moving and astonishing book presents an entirely new history of Britain. In lieu of the parade of usual suspects—kings, queens, saints, warriors, and the notorious—this account is a people’s history: a narrative made from stories only DNA can tell. Alistair Moffat is a former director of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a program director at Scottish Television. He runs the Borders Book Festival as well as a production company based near Selkirk. He is the author of The Borders, Kelsae, The Reviers, The Sea Kingdoms, Tuscany, and The Wall.

“In this unique book, Jim Harter, a gifted graphic artist and historian, has assembled a remarkable collection of images of these machines, drawn from either 20thcentury advertising cuts or earlier engravings. Taking the reader up to the beginning of the Great Depression, these pictures, and accompanying text, document this historically important development, and some of its most prominent companies.” —John H. White, Jr., curator, Smithsonian Institution “Jim Harter’s exhaustive collection of tractor images can be appreciated on multiple levels, as the intersection of industrial design, advertising, and art. A treat for both the historian and the tractor enthusiast, it sheds welcome light on an under-appreciated art form.” —Warren Stricker, director, Research Center Panhandle–Plains Historical Museum

“Haunting, gripping; I couldn’t put it down.” —Lindsay Ashford, author, Strange Blood

Bored and frustrated with the restricted life of a Victorian young lady, Laetitia—the beautiful and bookish daughter of the local Anglicized Squire Wingfield—encounters the romance she longs for when she becomes lost during a clandestine nighttime ride and is rescued by Gronwy Griffitch, the son of a Welsh tenant farmer. Attempting to assist Gronwy’s ambitions to become a classical scholar by lending him books from her father’s library, Laetitia becomes increasingly aware of her own disempowerment and the passionate desires that drive her into a love affair with him. Their secret meetings are paralleled with the tender relationship developing between Gronwy’s brother Peter and another local farmer’s daughter, Elizabeth Evans. After Gronwy is imprisoned for inciting a riot at the local by-election, the narrative moves inexorably towards its tragic ending. Demonstrating how both Gronwy and Laetitia are trapped, one by class, the other by gender, this historical novel explores the ways in which these roles intersect with nationality in 19th-century Wales. Hilda Vaughan was a Welsh writer who, during World War I, worked in a Red Cross hospital and at the Woman’s Land Army as an organizing secretary.

Brimming with mystery, confessions, food, and philosophy, this novel tells the tale of two strangers who meet in a restaurant in the Italian city of Trieste. Stephen, an Australian engineer living in Paris, and Irena, an Italian translator, share a meal and exchange stories in an atmosphere of geniality and refinement. As the story gradually unfolds in conversation, the two reflect upon culture, language, history, art, love and desire, and share all of the thoughts and sensations that strike an Australian in Europe. Filled with whimsy and the romantic exotica of an Italian setting, this mysterious plot makes for a wonderfully entertaining read that effortlessly balances substance with style.

When Philomena, a born rebel—disillusioned with her middleclass comfort and the expectations of her parents—and Nestor, an impoverished African exile with the heart of a poet, meet by chance on the streets of 1960s Bombay, their attraction will change their lives forever. Spanning two continents and following a story of love, loss, and politics—set against a backdrop of turbulent societies, times, and allegiances—this powerful debut novel explores the possibilities and limitations of individual and political revolution. Humorous and at once tragic, this story will appeal to those interested in contemporary world literature.

• Author’s previous books sold more than 70,000 copies A gifted young textile designer leaves Britain to work for a Nigerian women’s refuge, confident in the conviction that this is her one chance to make a difference; a 16-year-old accepts a low-paying job as a window-cleaner for the opportunity it affords him to peer into other people’s lives, and carefully plan his own; and a leading scientist risks his career by taking a secret lover back to his house one night, driven by a passion to share his new theory. The characters in this short story collection are unashamedly defiant. Buoyed by their self-belief, they enthuse, take calculated risks, and refuse to be beaten by situations. Offering an object lesson in how fine the balance can be between self-confidence and self-delusion, this compilation demonstrates how individuals, caught momentarily off-guard, drunk on the smallest drop of confidence, are ultimately brought down by their own belief in themselves. Jane Rogers is a professor of writing at Sheffield Hallam University, a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, and the recipient of the Arthur C. Clarke award.

Women’s Language

Lena Ashwell

An Analysis of Style and Expression in Letters Before 1800

Actress, Patriot, Pioneer

Edited by Eva Haettner Aurelius, Hedda Gunneng, and Jon Helgason Selected by a close linguistic reading of more than a thousand letters from the 12th through the 18th centuries—written in Latin, Swedish, French, German, and English—this compilation analyzes the differences in language and communication between women and men. Armed with an exhaustive stylistic analysis, this volume attempts to answer the question Is there a special niche reserved for women’s language? As it pinpoints the variations in how women expressed themselves when addressing men or other women, this detailed investigation of style and expression comes to the conclusion that there is no evidence for a particular female language; however, this authoritative work is a joy to follow for anyone interested in language, linguistics, stylistic analysis, and gender. Eva Haettner Aurelius is a professor in comparative literature at Lund University in Sweden. Hedda Gunneng is an associate professor in Medieval Latin at Gotland University in Sweden.

William Renwick

A fascinating and enigmatic man, Davis McCaughey was a theologian equally at home in the secular world. As governor of Victoria, deputy chancellor of Melbourne University, and master of the prestigious Ormond College for 20 years, he played a groundbreaking role in Australian public life. This compelling biography explores the character and achievements of a man who transcended his deeply conservative roots in Belfast to champion radical student politics. A pivotal figure in the creation of the Uniting Church in Australia, McCaughey was also regarded by many as one of the greatest public speakers of his era.

A cautionary tale of one of New Zealand’s most popular radio broadcasters, this narrative tells the life story of Reverend Colin Scrimgeor, whose successful radio show brought comfort and hope to thousands of people during the Great Depression but was cut short when he began to taunt his political masters. Despite his constant courtship with controversy, Reverend Colin Scrimgeor is lauded as one of New Zealand’s most popular citizens in this biographical account that reviews the life of a talented yet impulsive man and assesses the legend he created of himself.

Sarah Martin is a fundraiser and a former development manager at Melbourne University’s Ormond College as well as a former French, English, and history professor.

The Christian Watt Papers

Maxine McKew

Christian Watt Edited by David Fraser

An intimate account of one of the most tumultuous periods in Australian politics as well as a tale of personal change, this memoir discusses what went wrong during the 2010 elections—which left the Labor party clinging to the wreckage and forced into minority government. Bringing a reporter’s eye and an insider’s knowledge to a story that has caused despair among Labor supporters and produced disillusionment among the electorate, this book counters the view that Julia Gillard was a reluctant deputy who was forced to move against a chaotic and dysfunctional Kevin Rudd—and offers a different version of events. Maxine McKew is a vice chancellor’s fellow at the University of Melbourne, the chair of Playgroup Australia, and a member of the board of Per Capita. She is a former parliamentary secretary for Early Childhood, a former parliamentary secretary for Infrastructure and Regional Development, and a former journalist.

At the age of 47, Christian Watt began to write down recollections of her life, continuing until her death at the age of 90 in 1923. Vividly told, this narrative follows the Scotland native from her birth into a Fraserburgh fishing family through her years working in domestic service—including as a table maid to Winston Churchill’s grandmother—to her life as a mental patient in the Cornhill Infirmary. These writings illustrate how the sea brought her family a precarious living and often violent death as four of her seven brothers, her husband, and her favorite son all died at sea, which led to anxiety and grief that eventually caused a mental breakdown. Offering a fascinating insight into Scottish life during the 19th and 20th centuries, this is the memoir of a woman of beauty, character, and intelligence.

Speechless

Journey to Oxford

A Year in My Father’s Business

John Mulgan Edited by Peter Whiteford

James Button James Button grew up immersed in the Australian Labor Party as the son of the street-fighting Senator John Button, an environment that encouraged him to become a political journalist and then a speechwriter for former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. His firsthand experiences are collected in this highly personal account of the rough and tumble world of modern politics and the growing disenchantment with Australia’s Labor Party. Button describes how politics took a detrimental toll on his own family, revealing that the death of his brother haunted their father—who in turn blamed the tragedy on his all-consuming absorption of politics. This moving memoir paints a colorful picture of the machinations of government and shows how far the party has strayed from the idealism and pragmatism of previous generations, ending on a hopeful note for the party’s revival. James Button is a former deputy editor, senior writer, and Europe correspondent for the Age, and he worked as the speechwriter for former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.

New Zealand’s London

An Indescribable Beauty

A Colony and its Metropolis

Letters Home to Germany from Wellington, New Zealand, 1859 & 1862

Felicity Barnes Antipodean soldiers and writers, meat carcasses and moa, British films and Kiwi tourists—throughout the last 150 years, people, objects and ideas have gone back and forth between New Zealand and London, defining and redefining the relationship between this country and the colonial center that many New Zealanders once called home. Exploring the relationship between a colony and its metropolis from Wakefield to the Wombles, it answers questions, including How did New Zealanders define themselves in relation to the center of British culture? and How did New Zealanders view London when they walked through King’s Cross or saw the city in movies? By focusing on particular themes—from agricultural marketing to expatriate writers—this discussion develops a larger story about the construction of colonial and national identities.

Friedrich August Krull A small but priceless addition to the historical record of early New Zealand, this unique book was published to recognize New Zealand’s guest-of-honor status at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair. Beautifully illustrated with paintings and photographs from the 19th century, this account includes the astonishing letters of a 22-year-old adventurous German settler in early New Zealand. These letters describe the people, landscapes, and birds of early Wellington, Wairarapa, and Kapiti as he travelled on foot and horse around the lower and central North Island. Friedrich August Krull was a German settler in New Zealand in 1859.

Essays on Christianity in New Zealand History

The essays in this groundbreaking collection offer fresh insights into how Christianity in New Zealand has been shaped by culture and society. Through new research on Christian ideas, practices, and institutions in New Zealand, the essays offer a critical examination of recent debates concerning New Zealand’s secularist historiography, the Pakeha-Maori, Catholic and Protestant traditions, and topics ranging from revivalism to romance. Together they provide evidence of significant religious change, influence, and agency while illuminating important aspects of New Zealand’s Christian past.

Wellington was only a fledgling settlement of some 3,000 people when it was struck by a cluster of devastating earthquakes in 1848. Now the authoritative text on this event, this scientific and historic account explains the cause of the earthquakes, the geological aftermath, the quakes’ impact on early British settlers, and predictions of larger movements along the Wellington Fault in New Zealand’s future making it a compelling read for science and history buffs alike.

Bishops and Covenanters The Church in Scotland, 1688–1691 Ann Shukman Why did the young Protestant monarch William of Orange fail to make his mark on Scotland? How did a particularly hard-line branch of Presbyterianism become the established Church in Scotland? Answering these and many other questions, this history reviews the political events that led to the abolition of episcopacy in 1689 and with it the concerted attack on the parish clergy. Exploring the background and influences that led to the brutal “rabbling of the curates” in southwest Scotland, it also analyzes the mindset of Sir James Stewart of Goodtrees—the author of the Act establishing hard-line Presbyterianism in 1690—and argues that the ongoing purging of the parishes led ultimately to the emptying of two-thirds of all the parishes of Scotland. Ann Shukman was one of the first women ordained in the Church of England. She is a former lecturer in Russian language and literature at Birmingham University and Keele University and a former warden of the St. Theosevia Center for Christian Spirituality in Oxford.

The Gordons of Huntly in Sixteenth-Century Scotland

Scottish Enlightenment Links with France

Anne L. Forbes

Alexander Broadie

As it traces the rise of the Gordons from minor magnates in Berwickshire to major players in Northern Scotland and nationally, this history focuses on George Gordon, 4th Earl of Huntly during the 16th century, and his family. With parallel biographies of four of his sons and two of his daughters, this account highlights the Gordons’s connections and interactions with Mary Queen of Scots and her son James—who were vital pawns in the European power play between England, France, and Spain during a crucial time of religious and political change. An important addition to the historiography of the Gordon’s of Huntly, this is also a significant narration of 16th-century Scotland.

Scotland has always played an immense role in European high culture, and its greatest cultural links have been with France. This book shows that Scotland’s connection with France stretches back to the Middle Ages and continues into the 18th century, the Age of Enlightenment. Demonstrating that all of the major figures of the Scottish Enlightenment were in close relation to France, especially David Hume, Thomas Reid, Adam Smith, and Adam Ferguson, this account also examines their French counterparts, such as Montesquieu, Madame de Condorcet, Victor Cousin, and Théodore Jouffroy. Prominently discussed topics are skepticism and common sense, morality and the role of sympathy, and civil society and the question of what constitutes good citizenship.

Scandinavia in the First World War

India-Azerbaijan

Studies in the War Experience of the Northern Neutrals

The Silk Route Connection

Edited by Claes Ahlund

Reflecting the changing dynamics of the situation in India and Azerbaijan, this book discusses their mutual needs to improve their bilateral relationship. For more than a decade, Indian merchants passed through Azerbaijan while traveling towards Europe, allowing Azerbijan to emerge as the largest trade center on the Silk Route. This volume highlights each country’s mutual interest, challenges, and opportunities for diversifying cooperation in various sectors.

Denmark, Norway, and Sweden all managed to stay out of World War I, but all three countries were deeply affected by it. Opening with a systematically comparative introduction to the history of the Scandinavian countries during that time period, this account then presents 13 case studies examining the impact of the war on these neutral entities. From inflation and the shortage of consumer goods to widespread poverty and political unrest—not to mention the thousands of Scandinavian soldiers who participated in the war—this unique compilation analyzes the military and economic consequences as well as the vital political and social issues raised by the conflict. Claes Ahlund is a professor of comparative literature at Åbo Akademi University in Finland and a former professor at both Mid-Sweden University and Uppsala University.

Aboriginal Convicts Don’t Go Back to Where You Came From Australian, Khoisan Tim Soutphommasane Offering an unflinching and informed defense of cultural diversity, this book boldly stakes a claim for the overwhelming success of multiculturalism in Australia. Arguing against European governments that declare multiculturalism a failure, it asserts that multicultural Australia has been a national success story. Creating a solid case for why multiculturalism works, it argues against those who believe a multicultural approach to integration and diversity is detrimental to society. This is a celebration of Australia’s cultural diversity. Tim Soutphommasane is a lecturer at Monash University’s National Center for Australian Studies and a columnist at the Age.

Hannah McGlade

Revealing the forgotten stories of Aboriginal convicts, this book describes how they lived, labored, were punished, and died. Profiling several of the 130 Aboriginal convicts who were transported to and within the Australian penal colonies, this collection features the journeys of Aboriginal warriors Bulldog and Musquito, Maori warrior Hohepa Te Umuroa, and Khoisan soldier Booy Piet.

Bravely addressing a complex and fraught issue, this book shows non-Aboriginal society’s ignorance of the traumatic impacts of sexual assault on Aboriginal children. It argues that Aboriginal child sexual assault has been formed within the entrenched societal forces of racism, colonization, and patriarchy yet cast in the Australian public domain as an Aboriginal “problem.” Providing detailed analysis of the legal systems response, this volume shows that, while child sexual assault is a criminal offence, the tainted Aboriginal experience of the law prevents the fundamental principle of equality. It also encourages readers to find guidance from indigenous human rights concepts and international responses in order to prevent harming future generations.

Negotiating Risk, Seeking Security, Eroding Solidarity

Organising Poor Women

Life and Work on the Border

Edited by S. Mahendra Dev, Ravi Kanbur, S. Galab, and G. Alivelu

Holly Gibbs, Belinda Leach, and Charlotte A. B. Yates Through a series of interviews with workers in the automotive parts industry, this study argues that the restructuring of labor markets and welfare states, paired with firm-level work and management reorganization, has exposed working-class families to greater levels of job risk and insecurity. Focusing on workers in Canada and Mexico and using a gender and race analysis, this book paints a bleak portrait of the lives of working people, where workers and their families continually renegotiate the effects of neo-liberal economic and social change—working harder, longer, and further from home while straining familial and community relations and eroding the basis for worker solidarity and collective action.

Al-Khidr and Moses—The Qur’anic Story of al-Khidr and Moses in Sufi Commentaries as a Model for Spiritual Guidance

A Journey Through Life’s Great Questions

H. Talat Halman Examining how three medieval Sufi Qur’an commentators explained the story of Moses’ journey with al-Khidr, this volume conveys various teachings about the path of Sufism and the nature of spiritual authority. These commentaries, translated for the first time, discuss essential themes of Sufism as written by practicing Sufi masters. As the text reflects on both the social and psychological dimensions of the master–disciple relationship in Sufism and distinguish between the instructing master (shaykh al-ta’lim) and the mentoring master (shaykh alsuhba), a comparison is also made between the Sufi interpretation of death, immortality, compassion, and inner knowledge and Ernest Becker’s theory of the denial of death and the aspiration for both physical and symbolic immortality. H. Talat Halman is an assistant professor of religion at Central Michigan University and a contributor to various publications, including A Portrait of Contemporary Indonesian Islam and Voices of Islam.

New Actors in Central and Southeast Europe on Religion, Authenticity and Belonging

C. van der Kooi, E. van Staalduine-Sulman, and A. W. Zwiep

Edited by Catharina Raudvere, Krzysztof Stala, and Trine Stauning Willert

The articles in this book explore recent developments in Evangelical Christianity in the Netherlands. This collection raises a number of questions about identity, core values, practices, and beliefs associated with Dutch Evangelicalism and the contributors in this volume approach these issues from historical, theological, and political perspectives in an attempt to understand the role and significance of Evangelical faith in the 21st century.

A broad discussion about how history and religion contribute to identity politics in contemporary Europe, this book provides case studies exemplifying how public intellectuals and academics have taken an active part in the construction of recent and traditional pasts. Instead of repeating the simplistic explanation as a “return of religion,” this volume focuses on public platforms and agents and their use of religion as a political and cultural argument. Filled with previously unpublished data—gathered from texts, interviews, field observations, artifacts, and material culture—this record challenges stereotypical images of East and Southeast Europe.

As they provide insight into how Ficino drew on Platonic philosophy and Christian theology to advise his correspondents on how to deal with the practical affairs of life, these letters are written to the likes of Lorenzo de Medici and well-established members of the ecclesiastical hierarchy who would be able to protect him from future action from the Curia—the Church had recently cleared him of the charges of involvement with magic and predictive astrology. Intriguing and enlightening, this volume exemplifies Ficino’s ability to rise above the limits of time, place, and individuality. Arthur Farndell has been a member of the team of scholars at the School of Economic Science in London for more than 35 years.

Critical Episodes in the Growth of American Government

Dumbing Down Democracy

Robert Higgs Foreword by Arthur A. Ekirch, Jr. • Advertising in the Independent Review • Author’s previous books sold more than 30,000 copies Discussing how government has continually grown in size and scope during the past century, this account demonstrates that the main reason lies in government’s responses to national “crises” (real or imagined), including economic upheavals and, especially, war. The result, this book argues, is the ever-increasing government power, which endures long after each crisis has passed, impinging on both civil and economic liberties and fostering extensive corporate welfare. Offering ideological explanations for the ascension of the role of government out of a capitalist, free-market economy, it will appeal to those with interests in political economy, American history, and libertarian politics. Robert Higgs is senior fellow in political economy for the Independent Institute, the author of several books—including Against Leviathan and The Transformation of the American Economy 1865–1914—and the recipient of numerous awards, such as the Gary Schlarbaum Award for Lifetime Defense of Liberty and the Lysander Spooner Award for Advancing the Literature of Liberty.

Lindsay Tanner • Author’s previous books sold more than 15,000 copies Written by former Australian Labor Party federal minister for finance Lindsay Tanner, this insider’s perspective demonstrates how media coverage of Australian politics is becoming distorted, trivial, and juvenile, and it argues that this change threatens democracy. Showing how the Australian media has been under siege from commercial pressures and technological innovation, this work shows how the media has retreated into an entertainment frame that has little tolerance for complex social and economic issues. In turn, this exploration shows how politicians and political parties are adapting to suit the new rules of the game—to such an extent that the contest of ideas is being supplanted by the contest for laughs. Lying bare the relentless decline of political reporting and political behavior, this book—part memoir, part analysis, and part critique— tackles the deterioration that has set in at the heart of Australian public life. Lindsay Tanner is special advisor to Lazard Australia and a vice-chancellor’s fellow and adjunct professor at Victoria University.

The results reveal deeply troubling techniques used by law-makers to avoid select committee scrutiny of certain legislation and questions if the regulatory framework governing urgency is enough.

The Fair Tax Supported by History, Agreed by Economists, Feared by the 1% Edited by Emer Ó Siochrú Ireland is belatedly introducing a property tax following a disastrous property and financial crash. This detailed report outlines the critical aspects of the design of a new property tax and its potential impact on both the government and the taxpayers. Arguing that reducing the deficit is a significant political issue in Ireland: some advocate cuts and low taxation, others favor heavier taxes on the rich to fund healthcare and welfare programs, all worry about the impact on growth. This volume focuses on the revenue raising side of the equation, explaining that how the revenue is raised is of more consequence for reconciling conflicting interests, making public services more efficient and stimulating economic growth than how much is raised. Comprehensive and informative, this book will be of interest to those concerned with sustainable public services, dampening financial cycles and addressing growing inequality.

Cuts, Privatization & Resistance Neoliberalism and the Local State, 1974 to 1987 David E. Lowes Offering a clear, concise, and highly original account of the effects of spending and other restrictions imposed on local authorities in the second half of the 20th century, this book discusses an important political period in the United Kingdom’s history. Demonstrating that, despite what governments say, decisions to cut public expenditure are matters of choice founded in the ideological dogma of neo-liberalism rather than economic necessity, this account argues that a clear analogy can be made between past and present government policy and practice.

Robert Flynn • Author’s previous books sold more than 500,000 copies A powerful indictment of America’s abandonment of human beings, and children in particular, in favor of corporations, this account exposes the child labor, indentured servitude, and child slavery aspects that are undeniable parts of American history. Arguing that, in the wake of the election of Ronald Reagan, legislation began to support corporations at the expense of the American people, this book demonstrates how this nation’s intellectual capital was squandered. Discussing how deregulation and lax enforcement caused unnecessary deaths to workers in many fields, this work argues that the number of deaths and disabilities to fetuses, babies, and children will only increase until voters decide to stop the destruction of America and its children.

Reconstructing New Zealand’s Labour Law Consensus or Divergence? Gordon Anderson An overview of the changing structures of New Zealand labor law that culminated in the Employment Relations Act of 2000, this study provides a thorough analysis of the current state of the law as it affects areas such as the contract of employment, collective bargaining, security of employment, and trade unions. The book argues that New Zealand’s current labor policies are a system of self-help rather than one of state dependency, marking a new yet unfinished phase in labor regulation.

The Rise of the Fifth Estate Social Media and Blogging in Australian Politics Greg Jericho Using original research, this account examines the emergence of social media as a new force in the coverage of Australian politics. As it reveals who makes up the Australian political blogosphere, it tackles some of its key developments, such as the way that Australia’s journalists and federal politicians use social media and digital news, the motivations of bloggers and tweeters, the treatment of female participants, and the eruption of Twitter wars. Arguing that journalists welcome Twitter as a work tool and platform despite having to deal with vitriolic online comments, this book demonstrates how politicians, meanwhile, are finding it hard to engage genuinely with the new media. Because the new social media are here to stay and their political role and influence are bound to increase, the real question is whether the old structures of the political world will absorb this new force or be changed by it.

Reimagining myth, history, and literature, this compilation draws upon the poet’s remarkable travels and experiences as a doctor while working in some of the most remote parts of the world. As it brings Rimbaud, Dante, and 17th-century picaresque into play, this compilation explores the ultimate journey of crossing into another world or another life.

Offering a variety of explorations into different worlds, real and imaginary, beautiful and barbaric, this poetry compilation attempts to illuminate some of life’s difficult puzzles. A journey through a series of vivid encounters—ranging from fireflies outside a Gascony farmhouse and John Wayne sailing a converted minesweeper to a bull terrier listening to a CD and the poet standing atop Table Mountain with his granddaughter—this collection probes and celebrates traditional affinities between memory and language, time and loss. In its closing poem, this book suggests that it is the imagination that can best turn darkness inside out.

A debut collection in the form of African praise poems, this book celebrates the people and landscapes of Ethiopia. Seen through the eyes of a young white boy in love with his older, black friend, these poems explore boyhood in all walks of life. As it hurtles through recent Ethiopian history, from the overthrow of Emperor Haile Selassie and the legacy of empire to the wars and famines of the last 40 years, this compilation also draws inspiration from the nation’s folk tales.

Wit and engaging language lighten the heavy subject matter of the poetry in this collection, based on a former ad man’s true-life experiences of redemption and a developing conscience after leaving the advertising business. The poems take on the world of consumerism and address issues such as overconsumption, commercialism, mental health, spirituality, politics, the environment, and global justice. Poet Sai Murray makes powerful connections between the monopoly capitalist control of global commerce, the threats of the food industry to human health, and the danger to the increasingly fragile ecology of the planet. He utilizes a variety of styles—from autobiographical confessions and dramatic monologues to parodies of the language of the Red Tops, clichés of political rulers, and Facebook trivializations of community—to express his desire to cauterize the deceits of language and to convey his vision of a world with equality, liberty, and fraternity.

Suffused with the atmosphere of the landscapes that inspire the poet, including the lush countryside of Powys and islands throughout the world, this well-wrought poetry collection contemplates universal midlife themes. It is deeply involved with questions of desire, such as the ideal of a beautiful woman, hope of a good state, and vision of a pristine country and seaside. The tension between such ideals, lofty aims, and inevitable disappointments unite in the main title sequence, where an entire society must scheme and suffer for Helen’s allure. These pointed poems provide an enjoyable glimpse into the poet’s poignant imagination.

Utilizing a clear and mature vision, the poet lyrically expresses experiences concerning love and family. Skillfully pitting the ordinary yet mysterious “small things” of the universe, such as flowers, against loss, these poems also elegize the poet’s late husband, poet and critic Michael Murphy.

Ambition, rebellion, loss of innocence, memory, love, death and spiritual yearning are just some of the themes these poems explore. With an underlying seriousness leavened by wit and a self-deprecating humor, this collection engages in a dialogue that is both intensely Jamaican and universal. Featuring free verse, rhymed quatrains, haikus, and villanelles—in patois and standard English—this book also explores the dynamics, personal and social, of being a white poet in a black country. Ralph Thompson is a Jamaican–American poet whose works have been published in such journals as Carib, the Caribbean Writer, the Gleaner, and London Magazine. He is the author of The Denting of a Wave and View from Mount Diablo, and the recipient of the Jamaican National Literary Award.

Rage

Moving Experience

Managing an Explosive Emotion

Complexities of Acculturation

Theodor Itten Translated by Ruth Martin

The research in this titillating study explores the development of cultural identities among global itinerants and people with multicultural backgrounds through a new methodology—Personal Emotional Account of Cultural Experience (PEACE). Through examining the interactions and inner dialogues of multicultural individuals, the results reveal how globalization and a variety of social variables affect migrants developmentally and emotionally and force them to live their lives in the unclaimed territory between cultural contexts.

Exploring the language of myth, religion, and literature, this book evokes an understanding of how rage has been assimilated into social discourse and also dealt with in ancient and modern times. The author draws from personal experience and the results of research and scientific studies to examine the physical and emotional causes and effects of rage. As it debates the effectiveness and value of psychotherapy in providing a secure environment for people overwhelmed by rage, this profound consideration encourage readers to ponder every aspect of rage and how it influences one’s psyche. Theodor Itten is a psychotherapist and a clinical psychologist in private practice. He is the executive editor of the International Journal of Psychotherapy and the author of Jack Lee Rosenberg.

The Atomized Body

Primary HIV Clinical Care

The Cultural Life of Stem Cells, Genes and Neurons

For Adults, Children and Pregnant Women Fifth edition

Edited by Max Liljefors, Susanne Lundin, and Andréa Wiszmeg

Dr. Clive Evian

Referring to the focus of the biosciences on microscopic cellular and molecular “particles” of the human biology—such as stem cells, genes, and neurons—this account examines the relationships between culture, society, and bioscientific research. Showing that the atomized body is indeed socially and culturally embedded, in plural and complex ways, it argues that biomedicine and biotechnology do not only intersect with the human body, but also reshape our perceptions of selfhood and life. From a multidisciplinary perspective, this volume explores the biosciences and the atomized body in their social, cultural, and philosophical contexts. Max Liljefors is an associate professor of art history and visual studies at Lund University in Sweden. Susanne Lundin is a professor in ethnology at Lund University and a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. She is the editor of Amalgamations and Gene Technology and Economy.

In Blue Sky Boys, the Beatles rock the town hall, while the down-on-their-luck Everly Brothers thrash out their artistic and personal differences with a trio of New Zealand teens. In John, I’m Only Dancing, a subversive music teacher tears down 1970s macho school culture with David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust.” In Waterloo Sunset, a band of Wellington punks clash with ex-pat English mods, each fighting to find a future in the 1980s as their youth runs out.

Drawing attention to Gujarat’s template of governance, efficient public expenditure, decentralization, and participatory planning, this book relates the growth and development of this Indian state. Asserting that development is a result of the perceptible improvement in social sectors as well as of vibrant industry, it states the facts about the Gujarat model and explains how it has implications for other Indian states. Gujarat’s macroeconomic growth was built through education, health, water, electricity, and roads, and this record reveals how these benefits have trickled down and how deprived segments have been main-streamed.

Economic Reforms and Small Farms

Fundamentals of Merchandising

Implications for Production, Marketing and Employment

Edited by Jan Wiid

Parmod Kumar and Sandip Sarkar Comparing and contrasting the Indian states of Punjab and Bihar, this study argues that whereas Punjab farming has bright prospects for a new phase of corporatization, Bihar’s agriculture is still caught in the web of subsistence farming. As it looks at the impact of recent agriculture-related policy changes on the emerging production, marketing, and earning status of small versus large farms, this analysis reveals how farmers’ opinions contend that only the large and midsized farms benefited from the reform process, and examines the potential for better reform. Parmod Kumar is a professor and the head of the Agricultural Development and Rural Transformation Center at the Institute for Social and Economic Change in Bangalore.

Risky Business Insurance Markets and Regulation Edited by Lawrence S. Powell • Advertising in the Independent Review Today’s insurance regulation in the United States is at a crossroads: while some segments of the insurance industry are moving away from a state-based approach toward regulation, others favor a greater role for the federal government—despite the opposition from other stakeholders. Written by leading scholars in risk management, this book addresses some of the most important questions facing the future of state and federal regulation of the insurance industry. Examining not only the impetus behind various reform proposals, but also the historical development of insurance regulation in the United States, it discusses alternative regulatory frameworks used in the United States and in the European Union and, thereby, increases the options that reformers may wish to consider.

Nhava & Sheva Battling for the Environment: Oil, Ports and the Coastline Shyam Chainani The story of a struggle spearheaded by one man against a whole system of destruction, this book follows Shyam Chainani’s passionate and dedicated battle to save a verdant and wooded island near Mumbai, India, from being taken over by a government-owned oil company. Demonstrating how Chainani fought for Nhava by contacting his vast network of friends and acquaintances—and often making enemies—and utilizing every legal weapon in his armory, this detailed document is filled with humor, wit, and admiration for nature’s beauty. Shyam Chainani was a member of the Tata Administrative Service and a founding member of the Bombay Environmental Action Group and the Save Bombay Committee. His relentless lobbying, public interest litigation, and participation on numerous central and state government committees led to the enactment of much legislation related to urban heritage conservation, coastal-zone management, and protection of ecosensitive areas.

The Firth of Forth

Perspectives on Water

An Environmental History

Constructing Alternative Narratives

T. C. Smout and Mairi Stewart

Edited by Lydia Powell and Sonali Mittra

A rare portrait of one of Scotland’s major firths, this book shows how man has interacted with the environment throughout thousands of years. Combining a rich wildlife with a history of long and intense human activity around the estuary’s shores and in its waters, this captivating exploration of the Firth of Forth considers a wide range of questions, including How have people affected and exploited the wildlife, and how, in turn, has it determined the lives of people? What changes to the biodiversity of the firth have taken place as a result of human interference? Why has pollution been easier to control than over-fishing? and What role has conservation had in bringing about changes?

Stressing the importance of sustainable water use, this volume touches upon the broader discourses of water challenges, incorporating different disciplinary perceptions ranging from social to environmental sciences. Discussing how the ecological, social, and economic benefits that freshwater systems provide and the trade-off between consumptive and on-stream benefits remain contested, this collection of narratives calls for a global perspective on sustainable water use with an exclusive emphasis on better management of shared river basins and individual water sheds.

T. C. Smout is the Historiographer Royal of Scotland and an emeritus professor of Scottish history at the University of St. Andrews. He is the former first deputy chairman of Scottish Natural Heritage. Mairi Stewart is an environmental historian specializing in Scottish woodland history. She is on staff at the University of the Highlands and Islands Centre for History where she is working on an extensive research project dealing with the social history of 20th-century Scottish forestry.

Urban Renewal in Flanders 2002–2011 A Particular Practice in Europe Els Vervloesem, Bruno De Meulder, and André Loeckx Thirty-seven urban renewal projects in 25 Flemish towns and cities are discussed in this book that places them in a historical and European perspective. Since the end of the last century, a notable amount of urban renewal has gotten under way everywhere in Europe and, after some hesitation, in Flanders. However, urban renewal practices in Flanders differ fundamentally from large-scale European urban projects. The unique context of Flanders, with its almost total urbanization of the land and the fine, fragmented mesh of its urban sprawl, prompted the authorities and towns and cities to take an individual approach to urban renewal projects, and this account explores their risky and sometimes unmanageable trialogue between designing and building, social emancipation, and administrative innovation. The book addresses urban planners and academics and students of that discipline, policymakers, architects, urban engineers, sociologists, and residents. Els Vervloesem is an architect and researcher at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) and is completing her PhD. Bruno de Meulder is a professor at KU Leuven and the head of the Urban Planning and Architecture Research Group in the department of architecture, urban planning, and spatial planning. André Loeckx is an engineer-architect and a professor emeritus at KU Leuven, where he was head of the department of architecture, urban planning, and spatial planning. He is also the chairman of the jury on urban renewal projects with the Flemish government.

New Local, Regional and Global Perspectives

Rethinking Social Justice

• Author’s previous books sold more than 20,000 copies In the early 1970s, Australian governments began to treat Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders as “peoples” with capacities for self-government. Forty years later, confidence in Indigenous self-determination has been eroded by accounts of Indigenous pathology, misplaced policy optimism, and persistent socio-economic gaps. This record accounts for this shift by arguing that Australian thinking about the Indigenous is a continuing, unresolvable tussle between the ideas of “peoples” and “population.” Offering snapshots of moments in the last 40 years in these tensions are palpable—from honoring the heritage and quantifying the disadvantage to acknowledging colonization’s destruction and projecting Indigenous recovery from it—this book not only asks if a settler colonial state can instruct the colonized in the arts of self-government, but also how could it justify doing anything less. Timothy Rowse is a professorial fellow at the University of Western Sydney, who has also taught at the Australian National University, Harvard University, and Macquarie University.

“A thought-provoking set of essays. . . . A must-have resource for all students and practitioners in Indigenous affairs.” —Anna Yeatman, professorial research fellow, University of Western Sydney

Edited by Hilary Sapire and Chris Saunders Probing beyond the heroic portrayals of armed struggles and nationalist resistance, this collection of essays illustrates the intertwined histories of Southern African liberation struggles and those of regional and international solidarity movements, beginning in the 1960s through the establishment of a nonracial democracy in South Africa in 1994. As this collection seeks to present more nuanced accounts of the solidarity movements that flourished alongside the liberation and exile movements— such as the British-based Anti-Apartheid Movement—it draws together internal and external struggles in exile. Unique and detailed, it offers new insights into the relationships that exiles and guerrillas developed with host societies and solidarity organizations, both within the southern African region and in the United Kingdom. Hilary Sapire is a professor of imperial and southern African history at Birkbeck College at the University of London. She is the editor of the Journal of Southern African Studies and the coauthor of African Apocalypse: The Story of Nontetha Nwenkwe, a Twentieth-Century South African Prophet. Chris Saunders is an emeritus professor of historical studies at the University of Cape Town.

María, Daughter of Immigrants

Anglican Women’s Ministry

María Antonietta Berriozábal

Edited by Elaine Lindsay and Janet Scarfe

More than a memoir of personal and political achievements, this volume chronicles a family’s development from Mexican immigrants to American leaders. Written in an authentic and unique voice, this book describes how the author’s Mexican parents instilled a love of learning, a desire to excel, and a commitment to community in their children. Relating how her heritage and upbringing allowed her to lead her community and promote social justice, the author conveys a courageous story of hope, love, faith, and a fighting spirit long committed to social and environmental justice, regardless of the personal cost.

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the first ordination of women priests in the Australian Anglican Church, this book analyzes the ordination debate and reviews how it occupied church synods, ecclesiastical tribunals, civil courts, and media headlines. It also highlights the accomplishments of the more than 500 ordained female priests since 1992. Including chapters from key players in the ordination debate—such as Peter Carnley, the Archbishop of Perth, who broke the impasse by ordaining women before national legislation was passed—this unique volume also features contributions from religion producer and broadcaster Rachael Kohn and the Very Reverend Dr. Jane Shaw, a notable author.

Rebozos Carmen Tafolla Illustrations by Catalina Gárate García Afterword by Hector Garcia Manzanedo, PhD • Advertising in Poets & Writers (April) • Author’s previous books sold more than 75,000 copies Celebrating both the rebozo as a cultural icon of Mexico and the series of rebozoinspired paintings by Mexican–Californian artist Catalina Gárate, this bilingual collection of poems gives voices of strength, endurance, joy, and sorrow to the women of Gárate’s paintings. The rebozo is considered a physical manifestation of Mexican womanhood throughout every stage of life and can be used as a tool of daily labor: a sling to carry children, a shield from weather or from prying eyes, an heirloom, and even a shroud. The poems are accompanied by a historical explanation of the role of the rebozo. Carmen Tafolla is a professor at the University of Texas–San Antonio. She is the author of numerous books and the recipient of several literary honors. She lives in San Antonio, Texas. Catalina Gárate García is an artist and illustrator whose work has been exhibited nationwide. She lives in San Jose, California. Hector García Manzanedo, PhD was a noted anthropologist and professor of sociology at San Jose State University.
