Australia New Holland 2006 1741103681 / 9781741103687 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
255 pages. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and more. California as you've never seen it before. Award winning travel author Ann Rickard decided to take a road trip around California (with a small detour to Nevada and Las Vegas). With her husband Geoffrey they hire a car and explore the breadth and depth of this rich and fascinating American state: there's the gold country and cowboy towns, the glamour of Hollywood and the breathtaking nature of Yosemite, junk food and gourmet cuisine, the 800 miles (not kilometres) of beautiful coastline and, to the authors great relief and delight, a wine region. Ann declares at the outset that she likes America and Americans, and this is reflected in the narrative as she reveals the weird and wacky side of the Californian Dream with light-hearted insights and comical asides. Geoffrey, he of the ever-ready corkscrew, keeps a steady hand on the wheel as this road trip unravels. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and the biggest backsides on the planet. Yes, this is California, but not as you've seen it before.

The Karma of Culture, Arasanayagam, Jean
5 Arasanayagam, Jean The Karma of Culture
Canada Trafford Pub 2005 1412050790 / 9781412050791 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xxi + 150 pages. This book provides a thoughtful approach to some important and highly topical questions on what constitutes Australia's nationhood. It appeals to academics, public servants, students, and many members of the general public. Culture is ubiquitous. Culture is all-pervasive. Many (mainly Asian) immigrants take into white host nations strongly divergent, and historically durable, cultural stances and practices. In the migrant-receiving countries of the Western world, the core issue of a conflict between a sustained attempt by such immigrants to retain their cultures and the osmotic force of equal opportunity offering an earlier and smoother integration into the values and mores of the host people bobs up and down in the seas of social policy. Cultural diversity can therefore be de-stabilising to a hitherto cohesive society. The national identity which had evolved through the merging of culturally compatible tribes and peoples can now be seen to be threatened. Whilst this book is about Australia, the issues raised have relevance for all immigrant-receiving nations. One's culture provides the template for dealing with life. Its base is laid in childhood, through the values imposed by family and community. The cultural practices of one's tribe reinforce these values and associated perceptions. The impacts of nurture (experience) upon nature (inheritance), as one passes through life, are filtered through this network of cultural values. A conditioned belief among some in the West that a human zygote equates to a human being, contrasting with an older Asian belief that the human soul enters a baby's body at or after birth, is reflective of divergent cultural values. The need for immigrants to reconcile their inherited cultural values and associated practices with the predominant values and practices of their adopted nation-state can create stresses on both cultures. The issues which arise from this cross-cultural impact are those of: equal opportunity; whether a unified people can arise from a wide tribal diversity; individualism vs the collective (the family), ie whether the individual or the family unit has priority in terms of rights and responsibilities; the definition of family, and its role in society; cultural hegemony and political sovereignty in a globalising nation-state; the place of the Creator in modern life; and whether Australia's 'fair-go' social and policy ethos needs an infusion of Asian values.

Telling the Truth About Aboriginal History, Attwood, Bain
6 Attwood, Bain Telling the Truth About Aboriginal History
Australia Allen & Unwin 2005 1741145775 / 9781741145779 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
264 indexed pages. Genuinely good Australian history is under serious attack. This book is a brilliant battlefield analysis. Once upon a time historical controversies were debated among a small circle of academic historians. Today they are the subject of intense 'history wars' fought out in parliament, court rooms, museums, newspapers, cafes and blog sites. Bain Attwood takes us to the heart of the conflict about the Aboriginal past in Australia. He tracks the growing popularity of history and weighs the consequences for the nature of historical knowledge and the authority of the historian. He asks why and how Aboriginal history has become central to Australian politics, culture and identity. He examines the work of historical 'revisionists' and tests their promise of historical truth. Finally, Attwood ponders how the traumatic history of frontier conflict might better be remembered - and mourned - and why telling the truth about history matters for the nation and for all of us.

Australia Tap Art Gallery 2005 0646453467 / 9780646453460 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
84 pages including colour illustrations. An expression of individual pursuit of poetry and art, but the ideal of co-operation and collaboration has been inherent in the compilation, pre-production and publication through to the launch of this book. From seventy poems, monologues and dialogues, l have selected forty for this collection in order to provide a balance that could evoke a wry smile without attitude, an implicit message that could be interpreted to induce a social awareness with or without conscience, a description of life in a moment or an impression formed from a glance that identifies with the rather unique character of life to be found in these localities. Poetry and art pertain to many dimensions of thought but to find the connection in meanings between the two genres offers yet another reality - a shared reality to which end the projection of this book has been given a priority of focus. In the interest of future collaboration between poets and visual artists, the cross-referential nature of this book seeks either a commonality or a counterpoint with regard to meanings implicit in the written word and those represented in the aesthetic and contextual value of the art. lt invites the observer or reader to find connections between the metaphors and analogies of the poems and the images and symbols of the artwork.

For some, travel is the saddest pleasure, whether it is Australians travelling in Europe, Bali or India, or Europeans in Australia.

I thought I might stay in Europe forever. I’in not prepared for this. I like to he prepared for anywhere new, and now I find out you ’re ineant to prepare especially for India.

176 pages including b/w illustrations. It was largely because of such interest, and interest in learning more, that a committee of the ANU Staff Centre was formed to organise and run a wine symposium which would bring together a dozen of the leading winemakers from all over the country, to talk about this art. The papers in this book represent the proceedings of that symposium. As far as the committee is aware this is the first time that a symposium of this nature has been held in Australia, but to judge from the response to the idea, it is long overdue. The committee is particularly pleased that such a blending of science, art and community interest should take place within, and under the auspices of, the Australian National University.

Australia Envirobook 1994 0858811251 / 9780858811256 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
292 indexed pages. Includes bibliographical references. Wildemess conservation has not lost its relevance in the 1990s. Indeed, along with the gains of the last decade have come renewed pressures from governments keen to water down hard-won legislation for the benefit of those who see wilderness as an exploitable resource. And the Mabo judgement has introduced a new dimen-ion to land tenure which sees conservationists having to come to temis with the traditional rights of indigenous people. This book has evolved from papers delivered in late 1993 at the Fourth National Wildemess Conference, organised by the Colong Foundation For Wildemess. Divided into four parts: Identifying and Reserving Wildemess; Guarding the Future of Wilderness; The Enduring Values of Wilderness and Wilderness Management, over 30 contributors from all around Australia present a wide range of wilderness issues, from threats and protection to legislation, tourism, biodiversity and management plans. Writers have also joined the contemporary debates about fire strategies and mechanised access.

74 pages including b/w illustrations. Whilst this book reveals some of the secrets of the super athlete, in its entirety it will assist many others to realize their individual goals of fitness health happiness and longevity. My understanding of the advanced procedures of health and ?tness began at the age of 13 when I suffered from an illness that put me into a coma for several days. Instead of studying for school grades as a teenager, I found myself studying for survival, using books written by exceptional athletes, doctors who accepted the principals of both eastern and western medicine and that unbelievable minority of people who have healed themselves of disease such as cancer. The anguish that my personal crisis caused, changed my whole outlook on life, and exposed principles of the connection between mind and body that allowed me to understand some of our mysteries of life. My learning process not only led me to success over illness, but also exposed secrets that led to super ?tness and strength, enabling me to enjoy national success as an athlete (the author).

Myth and Today's Consciousness, Begg, Ean
14 Begg, Ean Myth and Today's Consciousness
U. K. Coventure 1986 0904575306 / 9780904575309 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
112 pages. The image, or persona, to which it is expected one should conform in the new age, whether we call it Aquarian, post- Christian, nuclear, or space, is already revealing itself. It is both more individual and more generalized than its predecessor. The new tide runs strongly against the accidental differences that divide us, like class, nationality and religion, flowing rather with the essential qualities which unite us. Much light has been shed on the nature of these qualities by the twentieth century phenomenon of depth psychology. As a result, we are becoming more sceptical of the prophet and the hero and the guru who claims special knowledge or virtue - or at least we ought to be - and more aware of the shadow that contradicts and counteracts the aspirations of the idealist, more conscious and tolerant of the paradoxical multiplicity of human nature....The gods and their myths are mighty forces which grip the psyche; they are never more dangerous than when they are ignored, repressed or slighted. So this book is very much concerned with religion, Christianity, and the predecessors which it supplanted, and the present state of our relationship with the gods. This is a presumptuous aim which will rely heavily for its fulfillment on a subjective, intuitive assessment of the signs of the times. Particular emphasis will be placed on the need to become more conscious of the deities with whom we appear to be on bad terms. The book is apologetically polytheistic in the same way that the circle of the horoscope contains the signs and the planets and the Tarot deck its multitude of archetypal images.

157pp. "The only way to understand the "Psalms" is on your knees, the whole congregation praying the words of the Psalms with all its strength." -Dietrich Bonhoeffer. At the time of his execution by the Nazis in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer was not quite forty years old. Yet already, his influence as a theologian was felt not only in Germany, but throughout the world.

Contemporary literary theory and the reading of poetry, Buchbinder, David
20 Buchbinder, David Contemporary literary theory and the reading of poetry
Australia Macmillan 1991 0732905087 / 9780732905088 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
x + 148 indexed pages. The last two decades have seen an unprecedented flourishing in the field of theory, whether literary, social or cultural. Many of these theories present a significant obstacle to the student of literature, who may be daunted on the one hand by their sheer richness and complexity, and on the other by their typical density of expression and style. Moreover, many current theories focus on narrative genres, to the virtual exclusion of poetry, once central to the writing of theory and its application. Contemporary Literary Theory and the Reading of Poetry addresses these issues, firstly by exploring the nature and use of theory in the reading of literary texts, explaining that no reading of a work of literature can be innocent, that all readings are framed, implicitly or explicitly, by a theory of some kind. Second, the book outlines and explores six important and current theories or types of theory: "Anglo-American New Criticism, structuralism, deconstruction, Russian Formalism, historicism (including, among others, Marxist, Bakhtinian and Foucauldian theory), and gender theory. Contemporary Literary Theory and the Reading of Poetry situates these historically and conceptually in relation to one another. Third, it shows how each theory or type of theory works by reading sample poems according to the approach of each theory. This book thus supplies the need of many a student of literature for material that both explicates conte_mporary theory and illustrates it, with specific reference, in this instance to poetry. Lucid and accessible in style, Contemporary Literary Theory and the Reading of Poetry is an invaluable text for the student interested in learning about current literary theory and how it can be usefully applied. David Buchbinder is a senior lecturer in the School of Communication and Cultural Studies at Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia. Though he has written widely on literature, film and television, and culture, he is perhaps best known for his work on men, masculinities and male sexualities, in which field he has, in addition to many journal articles and book chapters, published three books: Masculinities and Identities (1994), Performance Anxieties: Re-producing Masculinity (1998) and Studying Men and Masculinities (2012).
