Australia Commonwealth Department of Post-War Reconstruction 1949 1st Edition Hard Cover Very Good 8vo 
103 pages including a folded large coloured map of Australia. The Commonwealth of Australia first directed its attention toward regional Australia as a specific policy concern under PM John Curtin and the Minister for Post-War Construction and later PM Ben Chifley.

A plan for regional infrastructure and resource development arose through a series of Commonwealth/state conferences, culminating in 1949 with the publication of Regional Planning in Australia by the Commonwealth Department of Post-War Reconstruction. Under the CDPWR, the nation was divided into almost 100 regions leading to, in many instances, the establishment of ‘regional development committees’ (RDCs) that were expected to prepare resource inventories and regional plans ‘directed towards the full development of the region’s resources in order to maintain the maximum population. CONTENTS: PREFACE. PART ONE: CHAPTER ONE - THE GROWTH OF THE REGIONAL PLANNING ORGANIZATION. CHAPTER TWO - REGIONAL PLANNING ADMINISTRATION. CHAPTER THREE - SURVEYS AND PLANNING. PART TWO: CHAPTER FOUR - COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA. CHAPTER FIVE - COMMONWEALTH - STATE PRO]ECTS. CHAPTER SIX - NEW SOUTH WALES. CHAPTER SEVEN - VICTORIA. CHAPTER EIGHT - QUEENSLAND.

What Jesus Saw from the Cross, A. G. Sertillanges
4 A. G. Sertillanges What Jesus Saw from the Cross
USA Sophia Institute Press 1996 0918477379 / 9780918477378 Soft Cover Very Good 8vo 
244 pages. Never has there been spiritual reading as powerful as What Jesus Saw from the Cross, the book that will intensify your love of Jesus by burning the events of His Passion into your memory and imagination. Written early in this century by Rev. A. G. Sertillanges, a priest who lived in Jerusalem, this acclaimed devotional classic gives you vivid and dramatic details not included in the Gospel: With Jesus, you'll be jostled by crowds as you enter Jerusalem, choke on the dust of the narrow streets, experience the exotic oriental smells of the city at festival time, share the Last Supper with the disciples, stare into the face of Jesus' accusers, and be there as He dies on the Cross. Do you remember when Jesus begged His disciples to "watch one hour" with Him in the Garden of Gethsemane? With this book, you can watch not just one but many hours with Jesus. Read it slowly and prayerfully. The vivid details and the gripping narrative will soon take over: you'll find yourself engaged in a personal retreat, an interior pilgrimage, and a profound meditation on the love and sufferings of Jesus on the Cross. From Christ's Cross, you'll: Recall with Him the history of His people, while gazing lovingly on Mount Zion the "City of David" cradled within the walls of Jerusalem. Search the faces in the crowd below, finding there the malice of enemies, the dismay of friends, and the indifference of so many others. Find comfort in the tender love revealed in the sorrowful face of His Blessed Mother. Look across Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives, the road to Bethany, the Upper Room, the Garden of Gethsemane . . . and remember with Jesus the holy deeds He performed in each of these places. Recall the forty days in the desert, the marriage at Cana, the baptism by John, the calling of the Apostles, and the other events of His holy ministry, now brought to fearful consummation on the Cross.

51st State? (Scribe Short Books), Altman, Dennis
8 Altman, Dennis 51st State? (Scribe Short Books)
Australia Scribe 2006 1920769986 / 9781920769987 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
137 pages. Australian prime ministers since Harold Holt have all fostered close relationships with the United States, but John Howard has initiated economic and military policies that have bound the two countries even tighter. As a result, many Australians now believe that not only our sovereignty but also our very identity as a nation is under threat, and that we are fast becoming America's 51st state. If this view is correct, it should be reflected not only in our foreign policy but also in our domestic policies. Indeed, the weakening of social safety nets, the privatisation of areas long seen as government responsibilities, and the signing of the Free Trade Agreement all point to the triumph of US-style neo-liberalism. Yet, as Dennis Altman shows, the story is not so simple. Even as official rhetoric immerses us ever deeper into the US worldview, the resilience of the Australian social contract is imposing real limits on the application of neo-liberal principles. And, despite his enthusiastic membership of the coalition of the willing, Howard has assiduously cultivated economic and political ties within our region which, as the global balance of power shifts, will become increasingly relevant. In this elegant and sophisticated meditation on Australian identity, Altman suggests that the tendency to attribute malign American influence to everything we dislike about the contemporary world is the flipside of seeing the US as the only model worthy of emulation, and serves to conceal the deeper questions we face namely, how does Australia imagine its future?

217 pages.

Or those snail- speed, picky code histories and record books. In this collection of stories you can ?nd a bucketful of stuff you never knew about. Another Bloody Sports Book contains dead-set outright proof positive that’ll squash some of sport’s most cherished moments and skewer some of its big names. And it does it all with a big wide grin. In order to come by this kind of highly con?dential and revealing gear it’s handy to have the services of a trio of knockabouts like Malcolm Andrews, John Byrell and Frank Crook who’ve witnessed more mix-ups, muck-ups and biff-ups than Tiger Woods has records.

Australia Australian Broadcasting Commission 1974 0642973938 / 9780642973931 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
131 pages. In May, 1971, the names of more than 700 scientists, economists and technologists appeared in an advertisement in the Australian press. These people were expressing publicly their concern about the world, about the environment and what the people of the world are doing to it. A research scientist, Dr John Coulter, was Secretary of the Town and Country Planning Association of South Australia which organized the advertisement and some weeks after its appearance he was principal speaker in an edition of ABC-TV’s Monday Conference. The program aroused tremendous interest and over the next two years Monday Conference programs dealing with questions of the environment and ecology provoked similar responses from a public gradually becoming aware of the implications of rapid social change, technological advances and increased use of resources. The ?ve Monday Conference programs published in this collection contain opinions from people eminent in their fields and whose views are relevant to issues which will continue, inevitably, to be issues of the seventies. The upper corner of the first leaf was cut off - no text affected though.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Queensland but Were Afraid to Ask, Bahnisch, Mark
15 Bahnisch, Mark Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Queensland but Were Afraid to Ask
Australia NewSouth Pub 2015 1742234348 / 9781742234342 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
173 indexed pages. Includes bibliographical reference. Everyone has heard the cliches about Queensland politics: Queensland is 'different'. It's the 'Deep North'. Its state elections exemplify Pineapple Party Time. But what if those cliches are in fact looking more like the state of affairs in the rest of Australia? Does the Sunshine State represent the new normal in Australian politics? Once, Queensland was seen as the land that time forgot, with a narrow economy based on agriculture, mining and transport - and conservative values. Then, from the 1980s, a transformation took place as the state modernised, entrenching democratic reforms and civil liberties. Yet now, in the era of Campbell Newman, the Palmer United Party and national politics that oozes alarmist populism, it feels like Queensland's history of eccentricity and unrest has colonised the whole country. So how does Queensland both point the way forward and shine a light on the way we live now? Political commentator and Queenslander Mark Bahnisch looks closely and boldly at the Queensland experience, from the Joh Era to the present. His must-read book reaches some surprising conclusions. "Bahnisch's deep north is a beautiful hive of scum and villainy one day, a perfect storm of gothic corruption the next" - John Birmingham - Mark Bahnisch was the founder of awardwinning political blog Larvatus Prodeo (2005u13) and his commentary has been published in Crikey, New Matilda, The Drum , the Australian Financial Review, The Australian and elsewhere. He has a PhD in sociology from the Queensland University of Technology, Australia and has lived in Brisbane for most of his life. There is a name and date in the title page.

ix + 96 pages including bibliography. This book is written for academic staff who find they are being asked to teach and supervise increasing numbers of students from overseas. lt provides a systematic account of the problems of academic adjustment that confront foreign students, and it outlines practical strategies for teachers who work with these students.

Failure to recognise and address these difficulties can produce problems and frustrations for teachers and supervisors as well as for students. Brigid Ballard is Head of the Study Skills Centre at the Australian National University. John Clanchy is co-ordinator of the Graduate Teaching Program in the Graduate School in the same university. Between them, they have many years of experience working with international undergraduate and postgraduate students both in Australia and in Africa. Asia and the Pacific.
