A Guide to Northeastern New South Wales: walking, canoeing, caving, Climbing
1 A Guide to Northeastern New South Wales: walking, canoeing, caving, Climbing
Armidale University of New England Mountaineering Club 1981 4th Edition Stapled Cover Good Large 8vo Richard Hale 
x + 109 pages. This guide aims to describe some of the potential for outdoor recreation within that area of New South Wales which runs south from the Queensland border to the Manning River, and west from the coast to the Warrumbungle and Nandewar Ranges. within this area there exists a wide variety of topography and vegetation and a correspondingly wide potential for outdoor recreation. Although much of the region has been cleared for agriculture or is subject to intensive forestry operations, relatively large natural areas remain. The general environmental characteristics of North Eastern New South Wales are described in this introduction together with some information which is general to most forms of outdoor recreation in the region. This is followed by sections dealing with four major types of outdoor recreation: walking, canoeing, caving and climbing. The walking section is by far the largest of these, describing a very wide variety of walks with grades varying from easy to hard. The canoeing section is also quite comprehensive although little emphasis is placed on flat water trips in the more heavily developed areas of the coastal regions, and the western slopes and plains. The caving section is less detailed than the preceding two in that the actual loca tions of cave entrances are not given because of extensive vandalism of many of the caves in the region. Interested persons are referred to recognised speleological societies. The climbing section is intended as a general introduction to the scope for climbing in the region. Detailed route descriptions are not given as these have been published in a number of guidebooks covering specific climbing areas.

Germany Books on Demand 2010 3839184754 / 9783839184752 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
175 pages. A lot of things have happened during the past few years. New media have become far more than just toys for nerds; they now have an impact on everybody's life to a greater extent than ever before - from the cell phone in your pocket and industries fighting to survive down to your old high-school friend you block on Facebook to prevent him from bothering you every time you're online. We're currently experiencing a time of change - a change during which a whole generation is evolving; this generation is growing up with an entirely new media behavior. It can't imagine a world without new media. Now, also, the marketing industry must adapt, since you can hardly reach this generation using means and methods from the past. This book helps traditional advertising and marketing people master the step into the digital era, providing tools to create campaigns that reach the people of today. It was not written by a CMO giving expensive seminars and presenting big theories with no solutions, but by a creative team dealing with and living the changes in media every day. The team, Innovative Thunder, specializes in innovative marketing and has gathered experience by working with three of the world's leading marketing agencies - Jung von Matt, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, as well as currently, R/GA, New York.

133 pages including b/w photos. Originally published under the title "Vom Ostseestrand in Fernes Land", this text was translated by the author with assistance of Tim Acker. Author's note: "This is not an absolutely exact translation of the original published in Germany. The publishers deleted a number of paragraphs, from the original manuscript some of which, I felt, should stay. I have, of course, adhered to thesequence of events, but occasionally added an explanatory word or sentence, at other times deleted this or that. All of this does in no way affect the overall story. The other difference between this and the original version is that in this translated version I have used actual names throughout, in the original version all family names were changed for privacy reasons, although most first names were not. Also, this translated version includes a few additional photos. Contents: This is how it all began - to 1939; Childhood by the sea - 1939-1945; Journey into the unknown - 1945-1946; Difficult beginnings - 1946-1950; The end of childhood - 1950-56; A voyage to America; What shall I do with the rest of my life? - 1956-1959; To the far end of the earth - 1959-1962; Christmas on the beach - 1962.

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.'

A Woman, Aleramo, Sibilla
18 Aleramo, Sibilla A Woman
U.S.A. University of California Press 1983 0520049497 / 9780520049499 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
219 pages. For a book that sent shock waves through the European literary establishment and, since its original publication in 1906 has gone through seven editions along with highly cclaimed translations into all th principal languages of Europe, "A Woman" (Una Donna) by Sibilla Aleramo (1876-1960) has remained curiously obscure in America. Aleramo's lightly fictionalized memoir presented a kaleidoscopic series of Italian images--the frenetic industrialism of the North, the miserable squalor of the country's backward areas to the South, fin de sič cle Italian politics and literary life--all set in the framework of a drama admiringly characterized by Luigi Pirandellow as "grim and powerful." For some other Italians, "A woman" touched ar aw nerve, and many critics reacted to Aleramo with extreme hostility. However, whether one liked Aleramo's novel or not, the book was an iceberg in the mainstream of Italian literary life, impossible to get around without careful inspection. Sibilla Aleramo is the pseudonym of Rina Faccio, Italian author. She was a feminist best known for her autobiographical depictions of life as a woman in late 19th century Italy.
