1 Come, Holy Spirit, renew the whole creation: six Bible studies on the theme of the Seventh Assembly of the World Council of Churches
Australia Joint Board of Christian Education 1989 0858197782 / 9780858197787 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
108 pages including b/w illustrations. "Come, Holy Spirit - Renew the Whole Creation." That prayer is the theme chosen for the Seventh Assembly of the World Council of Churches, which will meet in Canberra, Australia, 7 to 20 February 1991. Presented in this book are six Bible studies around the Assembly theme. Beginning with our confession of faith in the Holy Spirit, we go on to study the theme as a whole, and the four sub-themes which provide the link between our confession and the demands it makes on us as we try to live our faith from day to day. Included in each study is a wealth of comments and testimonies from friends in many parts of the world. By being involved in these studies as groups of Christian people, all of us can prepare for and contribute to the Canberra Assembly - and allow the renewal we pray for to start with us in our congregation and our local community.

Sport in Australian History (Australian Retrospectives), Adair, Daryl; Vamplew, Wray
4 Adair, Daryl; Vamplew, Wray Sport in Australian History (Australian Retrospectives)
Australia Oxford University Press 1998 0195535901 / 9780195535907 Reprint Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
169 indexed pages. Australians are often said to be obsessed with sport, and playing and watching sport have long been regarded as national pastimes. Sport in Australian History is an innovative and exciting study of the political, economic, social, and cultural role that sport has played in Australia since European settlement. The authors investigate many of the myths surrounding the place of sport in Australian culture. They demonstrate that, although Australians are far from unique in their fascination with sport, a historical study of their involvement - both as participants and spectators - can nevertheless tell us a great deal about Australian society. Indeed, in many respects, sport can be viewed as a microcosm of wider society, reflecting, for example, attitudes to violence and gender relations. Taking a thematic approach, the authors dwell on the values, ideas, and myths that have shaped the nations sporting culture over time. The book focuses on issues such as the sports industry; the place of women; the participation of groups not traditionally involved in mainstream Australian sport (such as Aborigines, the disabled, ethnic groups, and the aged); the influence of science and technology; and controversial topics such as violence, drugs, corruption, the law, and the role of childrens sport. Readers interested in sport, culture, recreation, and history will find much to enjoy in this challenging and thought-provoking book. Contents: Part 1: Sporting belief,historical record. Part 2: The sports industry. Part 3: Political football. Part 4: Sporting women. Part 5: Groups on the margins - minority experiences in sport. Part 6: Stretching the limits - sports performance. Part 7: Not "playing the game" - problems in sport. Part 8: State of play; major readings.

5 Aggleton, Peter Rebels Without a Cause? Middle Class Youth and the Transition from School to Work
U.S.A. Taylor & Francis 1987 1850002258 / 9781850002253 1st Edition Hard Cover Good 12mo 
159 indexed pages. Academic underachievement has long been of interest to teachers and educationalists, as have been the forms of ‘resistance’ employed by disaffected young people in schools and colleges. This book presents findings from a three - year ethnographic study of a group of ‘underachieving’ students in an English college of further education. It identifies patterns of cultural affirmation and ‘resistance’ amongst young people from new middle class backgrounds, and examines the relationship between these and the students’ home and out-of-college lives. The study also examines the consequences of new middle class youth cultural styles for the reproduction of class and gender relations, and raises questions about the radical significance, or otherwise, of middle class ‘resistance’ to schooling. Pictured is the title page of the book.

UK Rider 1978 0091347319 / 9780091347314 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
159 pages. "The most impressive fact in man's spiritual, intellectual, and poetic experience has always been ... the universal prevalence of those astonishing moments of insight which Richard Bucke called 'cosmic consciousness'" (in "This is it" first sentence). This book offers six essays, written between 1956 and 1960 which deal with the relationship between mystical experience and everyday life. The author claims that we need to disentangle ourselves from habits of speech and thought which make it impossible to see that everyday experience is the real thing. The title essay on cosmic consciousness includes the author's account of his own experiences in the inner realm. 'Instinct, Intelligence and Anxiety' is a study of the paradoxes of self - consciousness; Spirituality and Sensuality' presents a lively debate on the false opposition of spirit and matter; and 'The New Alchemy' gives a balanced account of the states of consciousness akin to spiritual experience. This collection also includes the text of the.author's celebrated pamphlet 'Beat Zen, Square Zen and Zen.'

Our Urban Future: New Paradigms for Equity and Sustainability, Badshah, Akhtar A.
8 Badshah, Akhtar A. Our Urban Future: New Paradigms for Equity and Sustainability
United Kingdom Zed Books 1996 1856494063 / 9781856494069 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
220 indexed pages. By the year 2005 half the world's population will be living in cities. Already, half the poor are urban dwellers. Confronted with the sheer scale of the problem, urban policy in the South has undergone a succession of sharp changes of approach over the years. More recently, as the exciting examples in this book vividly show, there are renewed grounds for optimism that a new approach, with an emphasis on a partnership between the people, NGOs, private investors and local authorities, can have a more effective impact in tackling the multiple dimensions of the urban crisis facing the poor. The purpose of this book is to seek out innovative, but not necessarily well-known, approaches that have actually worked on a rather large scale in a variety of big city contexts in India, Pakistan, Egypt, Indonesia and elsewhere. Dr Badshah's aim is to identify effective urban practices that are socially equitable, ecologically sustainable, economically viable and - equally important - culturally transferrable into other contexts. This up-to-date presentation of some of the most fruitful current approaches to tackling urban problems, with its wealth of original case study detail collected in situ, makes it a book of considerable value to all those - planners, researchers, teachers, policy makers - involved in seeking to create a better urban future.

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.

Through various games and projects the twins seek to escape traditional role-models and all their efforts provide outrageously funny reading. The story opens when Candy is hardly old enough to hold a beater, and follows through to when he becomes an apprentice chef at the local hotel. Sheree's determination to succeed at medicine is just as strong at the end of the book, and we wonder if she has managed to achieve the top marks which will enable her to study medicine at university.

Australia Random House 2006 1741661838 / 9781741661835 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
203 pages. Pete, in his last year of high school, is hit with a giant wave of disillusion about his future. His final year is supposed to be when he has 'made it'. Teachers, parents, advertising campaigns all tell him he's had some of the best years of his life and now he should be ready and amped to launch off into adulthood, and the so-called real world. But when he looks at that world, it all seems like more of the same: one great big empty con. Itchy, antsy, angry - and not really understanding exactly why - he finds himself staging a spontaneous anti-you-name-it protest at a local Prince of Burgers franchise. Which gets him on the news. Which draws the attentions of Sophie, a troubled young woman at his school, who sets up a website in his support. Which - given the instantaneous reach of the Net - starts a chain reaction of copycat protests around the world. All of which can't escape notice of the Prince of Burgers' management team. Soon two of its company psychologists, Lucinda and Marcus, want to interview Pete. Intrigued by his angry energy, and his angle on society, they think he might be made of the stuff that could win him a study scholarship. Has Pete's view of corporate ethics been misguided? Meanwhile, Sophie, his fanclub website manager, has developed an unhealthy obsession with Pete's antics. She is following his every move - and she has her own suspicions about why Lucinda and Marcus are so fascinated by Pete. She thinks she knows the truth - but who can the reader trust?

Virginia Woolf: Her Art as a Novelist, Bennett, Joan
13 Bennett, Joan Virginia Woolf: Her Art as a Novelist
UK Cambridge University Press 1979 052109951X / 9780521099516 2nd Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
x + 172 indexed pages. More than most novelists, Virginia Woolf benefits by an introducer. She is never, either by intention or equipment, the expected novelist. She chose the novel to adapt it deliberately and progressively to be the vehicle of her own subtle perception. Behind this study of the novels is an intense interest in the person revealed in the novelist. The criticism is warm as well as acute and the whole study is felt to be a tribute reasoned and justified - to a woman sensitive, compassionate, passionately honest and eager only for truth; to an artist quite unsparing of her own labour, finely gifted, self-effacing, serious and humourous. Mrs Bennett added two chapters on A Writer's Diary and on Virginia Woolf's critical essays for the second edition. Both can help our understanding of Virginia Woolf the novelist; the Diary by the insight it gives into her creative process and the fuller understanding we can gain of technical problems, the essays because they are about novels and novelists.

Australia Matthias Media 1999 1876326131 / 9781876326135 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 16mo 
93 pages. Offers a concise and readable summary of the essence of psychology- what it is, how it came about, and how it relates to the Christian world-view of the Bible. She also scrutinises the deeper assumptions of psychology, and asks how a Christian view of humanity and he mind relates to mental illness. As The New Millennium Dawns, the psychologist has replaced the clergyman as the dispenser of wisdom and peace in our confused and troubled world. When we are depressed or anxious or our marriages are in trouble, it is to psychology that we routinely turn for insight and therapy. It is hard to believe that psychology hardly existed a century ago, and that its prominent place in modern life has only come about in the last generation. In this short book, Dr Kirsten Birkett offers a concise and readable summary of the essence of psychology- what it is, how it came about, and how it relates to the Christian world-view of the Bible. Dr Birkett examines the various kinds of psychological therapies, and how these are based on different views of how the mind works. She also scrutinises the deeper assumptions of psychology, and asks how a Christian view of humanity and he mind relates to mental illness. This penetrating analysis of the insights and claims of psychology makes for fascinating reading. It will be of particular interest to those who struggle with their own mental health, as well as those who support them. The Modern Beliefs series is part of the work of the Matthias Centre for the Study of Modern Beliefs. The series aims to present a short summary and analysis of the beliefs and ideologies of our modern world from a Christian point of view.

Australia PETA 1992 0711916705 / 9780711916708 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 8vo 
116 pages. The increasing pressure for greater accountability which has accompanied recent economic changes has put assessment high on the educational agenda. There are four major groups requiring performance information: students, teachers, parents and educational systems. This book surveys some of the recent developments in language assessment, both in Australia and overseas, which attempt to satisfy the needs of these groups. It looks at some of the issues which surround these developments, raising questions about our views of knowledge and asking whether the needs of all groups can be satisfied by one form of assessment. It also looks at the way some systems and some teachers have tackled the issues and offers practical suggestions for organising assessment in the classroom. Chrystine Bouffler is Head of the School of Education at Ballarat University College. She has had a long involvement in teaching and literacy learning within Australia and overseas. She is well known to PETA members for her work on spelling - in particular, for her book Spell by Writing and PEN Spelling It Out to Parents, both written with Wendy Bean. Her interest and expertise go beyond the area of spelling, however, and her most recent publication was a PEN on Assessment and Evaluation in Reading, written with Bruce Knight.

Australia Allen & Unwin 1986 086861937X / 9780868619378 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
177 indexed pages. Despite all the setbacks, child care in the 1980s is an established area of public policy, an entrenched political issue and a focus of organised activity by many groups. Constant pressure will need to be maintained, however, to secure the gains that have been made and to move closer towards a national commitment to caring for Australia's children. This is the first book to address the political and social issues which surround the provision of child care in contemporary Australia. Caring For Australia’s Children is the first full-scale study of this important, yet hitherto largely unexplored, policy area. The situation in each State is carefully examined and recent federal initiatives are assessed against outcomes. Child care as an industrial question is analysed in relation to the consumers of child care and the workers within the 'child care industry'. Child care is revealed as a key policy issue for women in the workforce: its provision (or, rather, lack of it) is a major factor contributing to the lesser status of women at work. As a lucid account of the debate which is being conducted around a policy area of growing importance, this book will be of interest to all those concerned with the operation of the welfare state, the struggle for sexual equality in the workplace, and the relationship between women and the industrial relations system. There is a name in the first and in the third pages.
