Regional Planning in Australia: A History of Progress and Review of Regional Planning Activities Through the Commonwealth
1 Regional Planning in Australia: A History of Progress and Review of Regional Planning Activities Through the Commonwealth
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. Underlying socio-economic policy objectives included the utilisation of natural resources, defence imperatives and urban decentralisation. 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.

Heroes and Exiles Gay Icons Through the Ages, Ambrose, Tom
2 Ambrose, Tom Heroes and Exiles Gay Icons Through the Ages
U. K. New Holland 2010 1847734685 / 9781847734686 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
216 indexed pages. Demonised by the Church throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, homosexuals became the scapegoats of society, constantly facing exile or a brutal death. In "Heroes to Exiles", the human cost of this long exile is told through the lives of the most eminent homosexual men and women in history. Some were artists like the wild living Benvenuto Cellini or the repressed Edward Lear. Others were poets such as Thomas Gray, W. H. Auden or novelists such as Henry James and A. J. Symonds. Their places of refuge changed through the centuries from Italy in the 18th, to Paris in the 19th and Berlin, California and Tangier in the 20th. Some experiences were tragic, like those of William Beckford, Lord Byron or Oscar Wilde, and some were triumphant, like the remarkable story of the Ladies of Llangollen who became the most famous lesbians in Europe. Often treated with outright suspicion, homosexuals were targets for the totalitarian dictatorships of the 20th century. As such they were consigned in their tens of thousands to exile in Siberia or to the Nazi death camps. Even when peace returned after World War II most democracies still proscribed homosexual behaviour, forcing the Americans Paul Bowles and James Baldwin to seek exile in Europe and North Africa. Today the tolerance of Ancient Greece has returned to most Western societies although homosexuals are still persecuted in some Islamic countries such as Iran. In "Heroes to Exiles", Tom Ambrose asks if we have finally realised that sexual orientation is as irrelevant to character and achievement as gender and skin colour and if the long exile has ended.

The Karma of Culture, Arasanayagam, Jean
3 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.

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.

Hindu Nationalism: Origins, Ideologies and Modern Myths, Bhatt, Chetan
8 Bhatt, Chetan Hindu Nationalism: Origins, Ideologies and Modern Myths
United Kingdom Berg Pub 2001 1859733484 / 9781859733486 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
232 indexed pages. The rise of authoritarian Hindu mass movements and political formations in India since the early 1980s raises fundamental questions about the resurgence of chauvinistic ethnic, religious and nationalist movements in the late modern period. This book examines the history and ideologies of Hindu nationalism and Hindutva from the end of the last century to the present, and critically evaluates the social and political philosophies and writings of its main thinkers. Hindu nationalism is based on the claim that it is an indigenous product of the primordial and authentic ethnic and religious traditions of India. The book argues instead that these claims are based on relatively recent ideas, frequently related to western influences during the colonial period. These influences include eighteenth and nineteenth century European Romantic and Enlightenment rationalist ideas preoccupied with archaic primordialism, evolution, organicism, vitalism and race. As well as considering the ideological impact of National Socialism and Fascism on Hindu nationalism in the 1930s, the book also looks at how Aryanism continues to be promoted in unexpected forms in contemporary India. Using a wide range of historical and contemporary sources, the author considers the consequences of Hindu nationalist resurgence in the light of contemporary debates about minorities, secular citizenship, ethics and modernity.

Avoid Retirement and Stay Alive, Bogan, David; Davies, Keith
9 Bogan, David; Davies, Keith Avoid Retirement and Stay Alive
Australia HarperCollins New Zealand 2007 186950626X / 9781869506261 Reprint Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
272 pages. Avoid retirement and stay alive is the simple message behind this potentially life-changing book. The authors' basic premise is that retirement is notion to be banished from all sensible conversation and promotes the idea that no one should retire and no one should want to retire. Quite apart from the economic reality that our respective Governments can't possible afford the retirement we all expected when we started our working lives. Instead they say we should look at rearranging our lives to suit our changing circumstances, but allow no room for the idea of a use-by date when we stop and vegetate - because that's when we die, usually of boredom. A hard-hitting look at the Western economic history of retirement and how it has no place in the modern world, the authors provide case studies and a workable blueprint for changing our expectations and our plans for the second half of our working lives. With practical, pragmatic and accessible text,, the book will be illustrated throughout with line drawings, pull out quotes and bullet-pointed text summaries.

Any Guru Will Do: A Modern Man's Search for Meaning, Brown, Philip L.
10 Brown, Philip L. Any Guru Will Do: A Modern Man's Search for Meaning
Australia Univ of Queensland Pr 2006 0702235423 / 9780702235429 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
204 pages. A humorous look at a usually lofty and intimidating topic the meaning of life this book documents one man's uphill journey to enlightenment. Explaining the attractions (and pitfalls) of a pick-and-choose approach, the discussion covers Eastern and Western beliefs, all the while elucidating their practices through personal anecdotes. An attack of existentialism, a dogged attempt to discover God through poetry, a doomed holiday at a health farm, and time spent at a ritual Egyptian dance workshop are some of the instructive stories offered, complete with such odd characters as a saffron-turbaned Dadaji, the poet Les Murray, and a Catholic priest who stops taking the author's calls. Phil Brown's life has been one long existential crisis. His path to enlightenment has been uphill - think of climbing Everest with a colonic irrigation or two along the way. Join Phil as he searches for meaning in the most unlikely places. Phil's journey begins inauspiciously when he is carted out of a health farm on a stretcher - good food and vigorous exercise apparently weren't a clever idea for a man with a stomach ulcer and a fear of vegans. Once back from the emergency ward, Phil gingerly dips his toes into a variety of experiences, from speaking in tongues to a ritual Egyptian dance workshop, not to mention meaning-of-life seminars and meditation. With a cast of curious characters including Guru Bubba John, Les Murray and a dial-a-clairvoyant, not to mention Phil himself, this hilarious book will have you doubled up with laughter. Settle yourself into the lotus position, grab a cup of peppermint tea, and enjoy the ride.

Contemporary literary theory and the reading of poetry, Buchbinder, David
11 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).

Exploring Women's Past, Crawford, Patricia (editors)
20 Crawford, Patricia (editors) Exploring Women's Past
Australia George Allen & Unwin 1984 0868616044 / 9780868616049 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
215 indexed pages. This is a book that calls into question some of the traditional notions of what history is all about. Five historians who happen to be feminists have chosen to write about women at various points in time across more than a thousand years and two continents. Medieval nuns in Europe. women in pre-industrial England, women in mid-nineteenth century Western Australia, spinsters in late Victorian England and prostitutes early this century are vividly portrayed and the forces which shaped their lives - and ours - are explored. As Margaret Ker says, ‘If we understand the forces which defeated them, are we not better equipped to avoid similar defeat? This is history at its best - accessible to all those who delight in the way glimpses of the intricate fabric of women's lives can illuminate both past and present. At the time of this book's conception the authors were all based in Western Australia and although they are now scattered throughout Australia they are still closely involved in research on women's history. The topics of their research are as diverse as the material in this book.
