201 Balas, Robert Open 24 Hrs: A Book of Poems by Robert Balas & Paintings by 40 Local Artists About Kings Cross / Darlinghurst, Sydney, Australia
Australia Tap Art Gallery 2005 0646453467 / 9780646453460 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
84 pages including colour illustrations. An expression of individual pursuit of poetry and art, but the ideal of co-operation and collaboration has been inherent in the compilation, pre-production and publication through to the launch of this book. From seventy poems, monologues and dialogues, l have selected forty for this collection in order to provide a balance that could evoke a wry smile without attitude, an implicit message that could be interpreted to induce a social awareness with or without conscience, a description of life in a moment or an impression formed from a glance that identifies with the rather unique character of life to be found in these localities. Poetry and art pertain to many dimensions of thought but to find the connection in meanings between the two genres offers yet another reality - a shared reality to which end the projection of this book has been given a priority of focus. In the interest of future collaboration between poets and visual artists, the cross-referential nature of this book seeks either a commonality or a counterpoint with regard to meanings implicit in the written word and those represented in the aesthetic and contextual value of the art. lt invites the observer or reader to find connections between the metaphors and analogies of the poems and the images and symbols of the artwork.

A Road from Damascus, Balderstone, David
202 Balderstone, David A Road from Damascus
Australia The Poppy Press 1992 0646114409 / 9780646114408 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
219 pages. This book ventures behind daily news of the Middle East - images of killings, assassinations, bombings and faltering peace talks - to tell the story of ordinary Israelis and Palestinians caught up in the Middle East quagmire. The story of a Palestinian family and an Israeli family driven apart by the Arab-Israeli conflict emerges as British spy Dickie Jones attempts to reverse his dwindling career fortunes by exploiting his daughter’s friendship with an Australian archaeologist and photo-journalist. The Australian’s friendship with a Palestinian businessman reveals the saga of the two families, who for decades had been friends and neighbours in Jerusalem up to the years before modern Israel was founded. After more than forty years apart, the separate ways of the families cross briefly and tragically. This encounter focuses attention on the elusiveness of truth in the Middle East. Despite the undoubted tragedy of the Arab-Israeli dispute, the novel captures the humour, irony and fatalism of the area and its people, whose resilience belies the seriousness of the situation. David Balderstone was Middle East Correspondent for The Age, Melbourne, from 1977- 1983. During this time, he was a regular visitor to Ayatollah Khomeini’s Iran, covered peace negotiations between Egypt and Israel, and was a front line reporter on the Iran/Iraq war front and in Lebanon. Since then, he has visited the area regularly, and broadcast extensively on Middle East politics for the ABC ’s Radio Australia. He began his career as a cadet journalist on 'The Age' in 1966.

What's up Mate?, Bales, Helen

Australia Hodder & Stoughton 1987 0340372036 / 9780340372036 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
32 pages including colour illustrations. During the eighteen months my son Anthony was under treatment for cancer, we all - doctors, nurses and family - developed the habit of greeting him with "What's up, mate?". We didn't expect a reply but more often than not we did get a smile. Perhaps in the beginning, the question was too difficult for a six-year-old child to answer. During the long period of struggling to communicate and cope, Anthony himself became aware of our problem. When I decided to try to put it all down on paper, the idea was instantly endorsed "The kids need it, Mum," said Anthony. So do parents, friends, relatives and teachers. I hope that "What's Up Mate?" will make it just a little easier to cope in a very difficult situation.

After all, if his owners, the Trifles, find out that their pet pooch can talk, they might ask him to do chores like answer the telephone or do the shopping. Worse still, they might hand him over to snoopy scientists and he’d spend the rest of his life answering stupid questions. So Selby has vowed to keep his trap shut - even if it kills him! But only fast talking can save him when he’s caught in a cage with Two-Tooth Tina, or is about to be dumped over a cliff, or is going to be sliced into Selby-salami by a gigantic saw blade which is whirring closer and closer...Yikes!

175 pages. "The map!" Bert exclaimed. "The map to the Piggott Treasure! This could be the answer to everything! Yessssss!" 'Piggotts In Peril' begins with the shy and sensitive Bert Piggott accidentally finding the map to pirate treasure hidden many years ago by his great great great great grandfather. At first a quest for untold wealth seems the answer to all his problems but getting it means bringing along his scheming, ratbag family. Little does he know that what lies ahead are problems that even the pessimistic Bert could never imagine: the terror of turbulent seas aboard a "borrowed" boat, capture by pirates, being marooned on the Isle of the Dead, and more. Add to this mix the antics of his best friend (the child actress) Antigone Attwood and Bert's feeling of hopelessness soon turns to utter despair. 'Piggotts In Peril' is a warm, adventure comedy about the origins of the universe, the evolution of humankind - and pirate treasure.

Australia IDP Education 1997 0864030045 / 9780864030047 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
ix + 96 pages including bibliography. This book is written for academic staff who find they are being asked to teach and supervise increasing numbers of students from overseas. lt provides a systematic account of the problems of academic adjustment that confront foreign students, and it outlines practical strategies for teachers who work with these students. The theme of Teaching International Students is that many of the difficulties international students experience in their studies derive not so much from ‘poor English’ as from a clash of educational cultures. indeed, the attitudes to knowledge and learning which characterise formal education in other societies are often very different form those which underpin our own universities and colleges. 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. They are the authors of a number of highly successful books including Essay Writing for Students and Study Abroad: a manual for Asian students. There is a small inscription in the first page.

Germany Waxmann Verlag GmbH 2009 3830916175 / 9783830916178 2nd Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
178 pages. More than ever before, the arts are shaping and influencing our daily lives through the media and the creative industries. The arts are no longer confined to museums and theatres, but are adding value to our national economies and improving the quality of education. This has implications for arts education. However, unlike other subjects taught at schools, the arts have rarely made their purpose clear: Why are they taught? What is good arts education? And what are the benefits of teaching creative subjects or using creative ways to teach? In 2004 Professor Anne Bamford conducted the first international analysis of arts education research for UNESCO, in partnership with IFACCA and the Australia Council. Comparing data and case studies from more than 60 countries, the book analyses the differences between 'education in the arts' and 'education through the arts'. While appreciating that arts programmes are embedded in their unique social and cultural contexts, Professor Bamford develops internationally comparable standards for quality arts education. In addition, she identifies a number of concrete educational, cultural, and social benefits of arts education. This definitive work is of major interest to policy-makers, educators and artists.
