Australian Aboriginal Art: A Souvenir Book of Aboriginal Art in the Australian National Gallery, Caruana, Wally
3 Caruana, Wally Australian Aboriginal Art: A Souvenir Book of Aboriginal Art in the Australian National Gallery
Australia Australian National Gallery 1987 0642081441 / 9780642081445 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good Folio 
55 colour illustrated pages. The work of Australia's Aboriginal artists, in all its variety of forms and social origins, has a sense of purpose and achievement. A knowledge of long traditions is reflected in the vitality and excitement of its contemporary setting. Aboriginal art, though relatively unknown, is one of the most important forms of artistic expression. It is not only the long history but also the continuing and evolving traditions of Aboriginal art that represent an extraordinary achievement, and most of the artists represented here live and work in traditionally oriented situations in the Northern Territory. This book aims to give the reader a feeling for the Gallery's collection, both in its scope and in its quality. Unfortunately not every artist represented in the collection can be mentioned here. For those that are, one work by each is illustrated. There are many omissions, but the selection has no bias. This book is intended to provide an overview of the Gallery’s collections and of the state of contemporary Aboriginal art. Most works included in this book were collected in the 1970s and ealry 1980s

335 indexed pages. Includes bibliographical references. The Australian court system continues to be the subject of debate and disagreement. Controversial issues in recent years have included judicial independence and judicial administration, the relations between courts and tribunals, the role of the High Court and specialist courts such as the Family Court, and problems of cost and delay. Australian Courts of Law traces the development of the Australian court systems from their English and colonial origins and gives an up-to-date account of the modern system. This third edition has been fully revised to take into account the developments since 1988. All major courts are dealt with - Magistrates Courts, District and Supreme Courts, the Federal Court and the High Court, and the main specialist courts such as the industrial courts and commissions, the Family Court, children's courts and small claims courts. The courts of all six States, the ACT and the Northern Territory are covered. The emphasis throughout is on an understanding of the constitution and operation of the courts, with comparisons of the many differences between jurisdictions. Australian Courts of Law will be essential reading for law students, and is recommended for anyone seeking an introduction to the Australian courts or the Australian legal system, or looking for further information on their workings and problems.

Australia: Boom to Bust: The Great Australian Credit & Property Bubble, David, Lindsay
6 David, Lindsay Australia: Boom to Bust: The Great Australian Credit & Property Bubble
U.S.A. Lindsay David 2014 1497503868 / 9781497503861 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
227 pages. "How much longer can the China construction boom last?" "At the height of the Global Financial Crisis, the American banking system was too big to fail. Today, the Australian banking system is too big to save." Australia: Boom to Bust dives deeply into the plausible collapse of the "Three Pillars" of the Australian economy: Banks, Natural Resources and Real Estate. Lindsay David provides unique commentary on the true state of the Australian economy and identifies major defects in the structures of the Three Pillars. Toxic levels of private sector debt sponsored by Australia's largest banks has managed to flood already-inflated asset classes of the Pillars on the back of a once-in-a-lifetime construction boom and property bubble in China. Compelling data and research suggests that the Australian economy has lost touch with reality and has gambled away its banking system to propel the mining and property markets into unchartered waters. Powerful Australian property and banking pundits have successfully led Australians to believe that the unusually high cost of real estate is justified. The pundits tell us that Australia is simply "different." Pundits love to use the word "boom," but they rarely use the word "bust." When a country as a whole and its cities lack density alongside a median house price that is more than six times the median household income, there is only one word that can describe the true state of the Australian property sector-bubble. The domestic banking sector in Australia learned absolutely nothing from past economic downturns in Japan, America, Spain and Ireland. Unfortunately, it will suffer the same sad fate that its northern-hemisphere peers did, as history has a good track record of repeating itself. The warnings signs of a toxic Australian credit bubble could not be any clearer-they have simply been ignored.

Australian State Politics, Galligan, Brian
10 Galligan, Brian Australian State Politics
Australia Longman Cheshire 1986 0582711444 / 9780582711440 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
xii + 283 indexed pages. Includes bibliography. For tertiary students. There have been extensive changes in state politics, with new governments being elected to office in most states. State governments have had to cope with leaner economic conditions, recession and resources booms, while at the same time continuing to manage vast state apparatuses and provide a wide range of social services and public utilities. Contrary to the prognostications of post-war centralists that federalism was obsolete and the states would wither away, the states are now more dynamic and significant in Australian politics than ever before. The growing recognition of this is producing a resurgence of interest in state politics. This book provides the only comprehensive and up-to-date review of state politics. It focuses on recent developments and the current state of play, examining why there have been such extensive changes" in state politics and assessing the impact of new governments in most of the states. The book is a cooperative research effort by leading scholars and commentators from the various states, coordinated through the Federalism Project at the Institute of Advanced Studies at the Australian National University. There are separate chapters on each of ‘the six states and the Northern Territory, and as well six chapters on key issues of federalism and comparative state politics.

Increasing numbers of people want to experience indigenous culture and visit national parks and historic buildings.

This work addresses the human dimension: it focuses on the interests, values and needs of those who want heritage conserved, yet available for people to experience. This new edition has more emplasis on the use of strategic planning and evaluation as a tool for managing heritage, more detail on visitor management practices such as interpretation, marketing, visitor monitoring and research, and a wider range of case studies from differing environments and localities in Australia and New Zealand.

Australia Marlin Publications 1989 1875165088 / 9781875165087 1st Edition Hard Cover Very Good 12mo 
144 pages including b/w and colour illustrations. Cliff Hansen calls himself a fisherman and storyteller. But the sort of stories Cliff tells are not about the 'one that got away' because not much has escaped Cliff's hook during a lifetime fishing the exciting waters of northern Queensland. Born and raised on the far north coast, Cliff has been a regional and state fishing champion in estuary, reef and offshore competitions, Fishermen of the Year on two occasions and has represented Cairns successfully in Australian championships. He is a life member of two major Cairns ?shing clubs following his long time membership, spanning 25 years at one club, and valuable service at committee level. He is also an associate member of several other clubs and is still treasurer of one club of which he has been a member for 20 years. On one season Cliff fished 51 consecutive Saturdays for this club and then attended the club dinner on the last Saturday of the year. There isn’t a place in northern Queensland that Cliff hasn't tested with rod and reel. As such his advice is much sought after. For more than 15 years he has been doing fishing and boating reports for a Cairns radio station. At the same time he has been a regular contributor to the Cairns Post and Australia's leading fishing publications. His photographs usually accompany his articles, as Cliffs camera always travels with his fishing gear torecord that record-breaking catch. Finally Cliff’s combined knowledge of one of the world's most exciting and challenging fishing areas has been packed between the pages of a book, along with some of his favourite Fishing yarns.

Thai Law: Buddhist Law - Essays on the Legal History of Thailand, Laos and Burma, Huxley, Andrew
14 Huxley, Andrew Thai Law: Buddhist Law - Essays on the Legal History of Thailand, Laos and Burma
Thailand Orchid Press 1996 9748299864 / 9789748299860 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
211 pages. Between 1880 and 1930 Thai law was modernised. Using the French civil code as their model, the kings of Siam recast traditional Thai law into western form. This book describes Thai law as it was before 1880. For at least five hundred years - perhaps nearer a thousand years - the Thai have used written law books. During the last twenty years, Thai scholars have systematically searched for these law books through the book chests of monasteries throughout the country. As a result, there are now ten times as many legal manuscripts available for study compared to the number accessible twenty years ago. In this book six experts on history and law describe the new discoveries and assess how far our view of traditional Thai law has to change. The essays have a regional focus, dealing with the Northern Thai traditions of Lanna, the provincial cities of central Thailand, the Southern Kingdom based on Nakhon Si Thammarat, the law texts of Laos, the new discoveries in Burma and finally with Bangkok and its famous Three Seals Code. A number of questions arise; some are answered, others will provoke a lively debate in the future. How should we describe the Thai legal tradition? Did the Thais bring it with them into Southeast Asia? Or is it part of the Buddhist intellectual traditions that reached Thailand from across the Bay of Bengal? Is it enough to call traditional Thai law 'pre-modern', or should the different regions be graded into degrees of pre-modernity? Ex-library markings.

Australia Allen & Unwin 1998 1864488506 / 9781864488500 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
208 indexed pages. This account of the mining agreements made with Aboriginal people during 30 years provides a practical perspective on mining's role in the native title debate. It dispels the claim that negotiating with Aboriginal communities must necessarily be difficult or devoid of satisfactory outcomes. The author contends that commercial mining is not necessarily hostile to native title. Aborginal people accept development but want it to occur under certain conditions and wish to share in some of the benefits. This study describes how agreements have been reached in this context, sets out the success stories, and offers practical guidance for future negotiations. Table of Contents: Introduction; Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act; State legislation; Mining agreements prior to the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act; Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act Era; Post Mabo Agreements: 1993-1996; Post Mabo Agreements: 1997-1998.

xxii + 340 pages including maps and bibliography. Northern Australia has become the primary focus of Australian defence planning. It is the area in which low-level contingencies are most likely to occur, and it is the direction through which higher level threats are most likely to come. The Review of Australia's Defence Capabilities by Paul Dibb, the 1987 White Paper on The Defence of Australia 1987, and Exercise Kangaroo '89 each identified the need for the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and Australian defence planners to increase their familiarity with northem Australia. This volume is a companion to Canberra Papers on Strategy and Defence No.63, which also dealt with the Northern Territory in the defence of Australia but from the aspects of its geography, history, economy, and the actual Defence presence in the Territory. This volume is concerned with strategic and operational considerations. It highlights the Territory’s place in the threat contingency spectrum, before examining those characteristics of the ambient environment which have particular significance for the conduct of operations. A strategic appraisal of the Territory’s geography follows - in general terms and from an adversary’ s standpoint. Thereafter follow separate and specialised operational considerations as seen from navy, air force and army perspectives. The final chapter addresses the civil-military nexus developing in the Northem Territory.
