Regional Planning in Australia: A History of Progress and Review of Regional Planning Activities Through the Commonwealth
25 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. CHAPTER NINE - SOUTH AUSTRALIA. CHAPTER TEN - WESTERN AUSTRALIA. CHAPTER ELEVEN - TASMANIA.

Speaking of Siva
27 Speaking of Siva
U. K. Penguin 1973 0140442707 / 9780140442700 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 16mo 
199 pages translated and with an introduction by A.K. Ramanujan. Speaking of Siva / Shiva is a selection of vacanas or free-verse sayings from the Virasaiva religious movement, dedicated to Siva as the supreme god. Written by four major saints, the greatest exponents of this poetic form, between the tenth and twelfth centuries, they are passionate lyrical expressions of the search for an unpredictable and spontaneous spiritual vision of 'now'. Here, yogic and tantric symbols, riddles and enigmas subvert the language of ordinary experience, as references to night and day, sex and family relationships take on new mystical meanings. These intense poems of personal devotion to a single deity also question traditional belief systems, customs, superstitions, image worship and even moral strictures, in verse that speaks to all men and women regardless of class and caste. Shiva is usually worshiped in the aniconic form of Lingam. Book pages are browning due to age.

Australia Labour Press Books 1994 1875639063 / 9781875639069 1st Edition Half-Leather Good 12mo 
158 pages including b/w illustrations. On March l9, 1994 an independent Workers Inquiry was convened in Brisbane to uncover the truth about the police killing of Daniel Yock, an 18 year old Aboriginal youth. Yock died on November 7, 1993 after being chased and tackled to the ground by police, handcuffed, left unconscious and then dumped in the back of a police paddy‘ wagon - all in broad daylight in front of eye-witnesses. Yock was the 52nd Aborigine to die in custody since the May 1989 cut-off date for the federal Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, and the 151st since 1980. Held in the face of strenuous efforts by the state to silence it, the Workers Inquiry exposed not only the cause of Yock’s death, but the elaborate cover-up organised by the police, the Goss government and the Aboriginal leaderships. This volume contains the record of the campaign conducted by the Socialist Labour League and the Committee for a Workers Inquiry, the evidence which was presented to the public hearing, and the findings brought down by the Workers Inquiry. Name in the first page.

What Jesus Saw from the Cross, A. G. Sertillanges
40 A. G. Sertillanges What Jesus Saw from the Cross
USA Sophia Institute Press 1996 0918477379 / 9780918477378 Soft Cover Very Good 8vo 
244 pages. Never has there been spiritual reading as powerful as What Jesus Saw from the Cross, the book that will intensify your love of Jesus by burning the events of His Passion into your memory and imagination. Written early in this century by Rev. A. G. Sertillanges, a priest who lived in Jerusalem, this acclaimed devotional classic gives you vivid and dramatic details not included in the Gospel: With Jesus, you'll be jostled by crowds as you enter Jerusalem, choke on the dust of the narrow streets, experience the exotic oriental smells of the city at festival time, share the Last Supper with the disciples, stare into the face of Jesus' accusers, and be there as He dies on the Cross. Do you remember when Jesus begged His disciples to "watch one hour" with Him in the Garden of Gethsemane? With this book, you can watch not just one but many hours with Jesus. Read it slowly and prayerfully. The vivid details and the gripping narrative will soon take over: you'll find yourself engaged in a personal retreat, an interior pilgrimage, and a profound meditation on the love and sufferings of Jesus on the Cross. From Christ's Cross, you'll: Recall with Him the history of His people, while gazing lovingly on Mount Zion the "City of David" cradled within the walls of Jerusalem. Search the faces in the crowd below, finding there the malice of enemies, the dismay of friends, and the indifference of so many others. Find comfort in the tender love revealed in the sorrowful face of His Blessed Mother. Look across Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives, the road to Bethany, the Upper Room, the Garden of Gethsemane . . . and remember with Jesus the holy deeds He performed in each of these places. Recall the forty days in the desert, the marriage at Cana, the baptism by John, the calling of the Apostles, and the other events of His holy ministry, now brought to fearful consummation on the Cross.
