A Concise History of Australia (Cambridge Concise Histories)

A Concise History of Australia (Cambridge Concise Histories)

Australia is the last continent to be settled by Europeans, but it also sustains a people and a culture tens of thousands years old. For much of the past 200 years the newcomers have sought to replace the old with the new. This book tells how they imposed themselves on the land, and brought technology, institutions and ideas to make it their own. It relates the advance from penal colony to a prosperous free nation and illustrates how, as a nation created by waves of newcomers, the search for binding traditions was long frustrated by the feeling of rootlessness, until it came to terms with its origins. The third edition of this acclaimed book recounts the key factors - social, economic and political - that have shaped modern-day Australia. It covers the rise and fall of the Howard government, the 2007 election and the apology to the stolen generation. More than ever before, Australians draw on the past to understand their future.

In All Respects Ready: Australia's Navy in World War One

In All Respects Ready: Australia's Navy in World War One

Written by Australia's foremost naval historian, In All Respects Ready presents the most comprehensive and authoritative account of the Australian Navy's involvement in World War I yet published. When the newly built Australian fleet sailed into Sydney for the first time in October 1913, it was portrayed as a sign of peace that came from being prepared for war. Within a year that war had broken out, and the Royal Australian Navy, fully trained and ready, was the most professional and effective force Australia had to offer the British Empire. Throughout the next four years of conflict Australian ships and sailors would operate across the seas and oceans of the world, establishing a tradition of intrepid courage and dogged endurance while forging their own unique naval and national identity. Impeccably researched, and drawing on a wealth of previously untapped official reports, intelligence summaries and private diaries, this book offers far more than a chronicle of historical fact. Crafting the definitive work on this largely ignored chapter of Australian history, the author presents an engaging narrative of the war at sea that brings to life both the human element and a richly depicted sense of place.

Algae of Australia, Marine Benthic: Algae of Lord Howe Island and the Southern Great Barrier Reef (Algae of Australia Series)

Algae of Australia, Marine Benthic: Algae of Lord Howe Island and the Southern Great Barrier Reef (Algae of Australia Series)

Lord Howe Island, an oceanic outcrop of volcanic origin situated between Australia and New Zealand, is fringed by the world's southernmost consolidated coral reef. The Capricorn Group of the southern Great Barrier Reef is a series of patch reefs and low coral cays. For more than 30 years, Dr. Gerry Kraft, along with his students and colleagues, has studied the species-rich marine algal communities of these reefs, paying special attention to subtidal habitats. This authoritative account, documenting the brown algae of Lord Howe Island and the southern Great Barrier Reef, follows a highly commended volume on the green algae (2007) and will, in due course, be followed by treatments of the red algae. This volume includes 7 orders, 12 families, 38 genera and 92 species of benthic brown algae. Richly illustrated with photographs, many of them in colour, it includes an introduction to the islands, identification keys to genera and species and a comprehensive description and discussion of each taxon.

Australia and the War in the Air: Volume I - The Centenary History of Australia and the Great War

Australia and the War in the Air: Volume I - The Centenary History of Australia and the Great War

Drawing on archival records in Australasia, Europe and North America, Australia and the War in the Air provides a fresh perspective on Australia's involvement in the Great War and a revaluation of air power's early influence on warfare. From the earliest days of the Great War, Australians volunteered to fight in the air - warfare's newest arena, and one that would transform the nature of military operations. In the squadrons of the Australian Flying Corps and with Britain's flying services, Australian airmen fought in campaigns that spanned the length and breadth of the First World War; between 1914 and 1918 they served in the Middle East, the Mediterranean and on the Western Front. By 1919 over 4000 Australians had served with the empire's flying units. Though modest compared to some of the other British dominions, Australia's part had been the most conspicuous. Whereas the other dominions had opted to provide manpower to serve in Britain's flying services, the Commonwealth's insistence on a distinctly national contribution ensured recognition for Australia's support to the empire's effort in the air. This book examines Australia's role in history's first major air war. Unlike previous accounts, which focus on the airmen of the Australian Flying Corps in isolation, this study conceives the Australian part as one of an imperial - and international - whole. In addition to using Australian involvement as a case study to analyse the impact air power had on military operations, this study also addresses aspects of organisation, training, administration and command, as well as the imperial politics and strategic issues that contextualised dominion participation in the war.

Fungi of Australia: The Smut Fungi (Fungi of Australia Series)

Fungi of Australia: The Smut Fungi (Fungi of Australia Series)

The smut fungi (Ustilaginomycetes and some Urediniomycetes) are parasites mainly of flowering plants. In Australia, these fungi include 296 species in 43 genera. The conspicuous stage is the sorus, which is often confined to the ovary or inflorescence, but may also be found in the anthers, fruits, leaves, stems and roots. Responsible for devastating crop losses in the past, their importance for Australian agriculture has been reduced since the introduction of fungicidal seed treatments and the development of disease resistant varieties. However, some smuts remain serious pathogens of cereal crops elsewhere in the world, thus highlighting the importance of accurate identification and the need for a reliable understanding of the taxonomy of the entire group, including endemic and established species. This volume of the Fungi of Australia, the first overview of the Australian smut fungi in almost 100 years, includes identification keys to genera and species, full synonymy, descriptions and comprehensive lists of specimens. The accompanying CD, incorporating a Lucid? Player, provides an easy-to-use, interactive key to smut species, with comprehensive fact-sheets, distribution maps and over 1000 images.

Algae of Australia: Introduction (Algae of Australia Series)

Algae of Australia: Introduction (Algae of Australia Series)

Algae are essential components of marine and freshwater habitats in and around Australia. They play a critical role in nutrient cycling, as food and shelter for invertebrates and fish, and some have considerable potential as biological indicators of the health of aquatic habitats. At least 12,000 marine, freshwater and terrestrial species are thought to occur in Australia, but many are yet to be described or fully documented. It is hoped that the series Algae of Australia will stimulate research, especially on the many poorly known groups and their habitats.

Zoological Catalogue of Australia (Zoological Catalogue of Australia Series)

Zoological Catalogue of Australia (Zoological Catalogue of Australia Series)

Volume 17.2 of the Zoological Catalogue of Australia series deals with four marine mollusc groups. The Aplacophora is a small group of worm or slug-shaped creatures, mostly found on the continental shelf or in deep seas. Polyplacophora, or chitons as they are known, are small, flat, grazing forms with eight calcareous plates embedded in the dorsal surface. Chitons are common in intertidal and shallow coastal waters and are often found by turning over a rock in a tidal pool. The third group, the Scaphopoda, are the tusk or tooth shells, all with a slender, tubular shell, open at each end. These curious molluscs live buried in sand, in littoral to abyssal waters, and may be found washed up on the strand. Lastly, the volume includes the Cephalopoda, the squids, octopods, cuttlefishes and others, many of considerable importance in the fishing industry, others such as the Giant Squid and Blue-Ringed Octopus, marvellously interesting. Each species is cited by name and original references are given to all species known from Australian waters. Information includes synonymy, literature citation, location and status of type material and type locality for each available name, a brief summary of geographical distribution and ecological attributes, and important references on various aspects, especially biology. This catalogue gives fine details of taxonomy and genus and species nomenclature, as well as comprehensive bibliographies for these four marine groups, complementing the family level information provided in Fauna of Australia Volume 5 Mollusca: The Southern Synthesis

Depraved and Disorderly: Female Convicts, Sexuality and Gender in Colonial Australia

Depraved and Disorderly: Female Convicts, Sexuality and Gender in Colonial Australia

This innovative book tells the powerful stories of convict women, while drawing out broader themes of gender and sexual disorder and race and class dynamics. It looks at the cultural meanings of aspects of life in the colony: on ships, in the factories and in orphanages. Damousi considers such topics as headshaving as punishment in the prisons, as well as analyzing the language of pollution, purity and abandonment. The book shows how understanding about sexual and racial difference became a focus for cultural anxiety in colonial society.

Art in Australia from Colonization to Postmodernism (World of Art)

Art in Australia from Colonization to Postmodernism (World of Art)

This book traces the history of Australian art from the settlers of Australia, the colonials trying to recreate their image of home in a foreign landscape, to postmodern artists blurring the boundaries between mediums as well as traditional themes. In this new critical survey, Christopher Allen provides a crucial nexus of historical and cultural information particular to the continent, dividing the book into six provocative chapters on Colonization, Settlement, Unsettlement, The Uninhabitable, Escape Routes, and Homeless. Acknowledging the unique social and geographical circumstances of the country, Allen argues that Australian art does indeed have a history of its own: the history of a society uprooted and transplanted, a history of strangeness and transformative beauty. 183 illus, 58 in color

Synthetics: Aspects of Art and Technology in Australia, 1956-1975 (Leonardo Book Series)

Synthetics: Aspects of Art and Technology in Australia, 1956-1975 (Leonardo Book Series)

New technologies continually arise, offering repeated opportunities to artists in search of the technologically novel. Stephen Jones calls this phenomenon the "rolling new," and in Synthetics he describes how artists in Australia used new technologies in their art, from the early days of digital computing in the 1950s to a landmark exhibition in 1975. Jones looks at not only the artists and the artworks they produced but also at the evolution of computing technologies and video displays as these new forms of media developed into tools that artists could use. He also examines the collaborations that sprang up between artists and the technologists who taught them how to use these new devices. The process, he finds, was reciprocal: the offerings of the engineer could inspire the artist as much as the needs of the artist could inspire the engineer. Jones discusses the constraints imposed by the limitations of new technologies as they developed and shows that different types of output and display technologies made for the production of very different kinds of images. [He explores the development of computer graphics, the use by artists of such new conceptual paradigms as post-object art, and the emergence of video art in the late 1960s and early 1970s.] By 1975, the art and technology movement in Australia reached something of a watershed. The work itself became established as an art form just as funding dwindled and a popular and supportive left-wing government left office. And yet, Jones writes, the early electronic artists laid the foundation for today's burgeoning culture of new media art in Australia.

Drug Use in Australia: Preventing Harm

Drug Use in Australia: Preventing Harm

Drug Use in Australia describes policy, prevention and treatment response to drug use, and details the social and political implications of these approaches. Key sociological, historical and psychological theories are described, with attention to social groups such as Aboriginal people, young people and women. The book also examines the major policy and institutional responses, including recent treatment, educational, and policy developments. Structured in two parts, Part I outlines the biosocial and cultural context of drug use, while Part II deals with the various ways in which a harm-minimisation approach can be used in responding to drug use (the harm-minimisation perspective recognises that safety should be the first priority in dealing with the use of both legal and illicit drugs). The book concludes with a critical reflection on the limits of harm minimisation, a discussion of emerging areas of importance such as drugs in sport, and a glossary of key terms. By challenging prevailing and often simplistic views about drugs and drug use in Australia, the book is often provocative and always engaging. Written for undergraduate and graduate students undertaking drug and alcohol studies, as well as for practitioners working in public health and allied disciplines such as welfare and law enforcement. Drug Use in Australia offers long-ranging and unique insights into contemporary and future issues such as the changing nature of drugs and drug use in this digital age.

Australia's Empire (Oxford History of the British Empire Companion)

Australia's Empire (Oxford History of the British Empire Companion)

This is the first major collaborative reappraisal of Australia's experience of empire since the end of the British Empire itself. The volume examines the meaning and importance of empire in Australia across a broad spectrum of historical issues-ranging from the disinheritance of the Aborigines to the foundations of a new democratic state. The overriding theme is the distinctive Australian perspective on empire. The country's adherence to imperial ideals and aspirations involved not merely the building of a 'new Britannia' but also the forging of a distinctive new culture and society. It was Australian interests and aspirations which ultimately shaped 'Australia's Empire'. While modern Australians have often played down the significance of their British imperial past, the contributors to this book argue that the legacies of empire continue to influence the temper and texture of Australian society today.

Woman Suffrage in Australia (Studies in Australian History)

Woman Suffrage in Australia (Studies in Australian History)

In 1902 when New South Wales women celebrated the granting of their right to vote, suffragist Rose Scott told the male politicians present that their names would be remembered "not only in the history of Australia but in that of the world," while the names of the women would be forgotten. Her words have held true for the best part of this century, until the publication of this book. Woman Suffrage in Australia tells the story of the struggle for female enfranchisement from the first stirrings of the movement in 1880, as it gained momentum and South Australian women were given the vote in 1894, to the success of the suffragists' campaigns when the vote was granted in 1902 by the Commonwealth. The author considers the international ramifications of the victory of Australian women in attaining the vote, comparing their struggle with that of the suffragists in America and the United Kingdom, who did not succeed in being granted the vote until 1918 and 1920 respectively.

A History of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific

This book provides an arresting interpretation of the history of Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific from the earliest settlements to the present. Usually viewed in isolation, these societies are covered here in a single account, in which the authors show how the peoples of the region constructed their own identities and influenced those of their neighbours. By broadening the focus to the regional level, this volume develops analyses - of economic, social and political history - which transcendnational boundaries. The result is a compelling work which both describes the aspirations of European settlers and reveals how the dispossessed and marginalized indigenous peoples negotiated their own lives as best they could. The authors demonstrate that these stories are not separate but rather strands of a single history.

Part of the Zoological Society of London's Conservation Science and Practice Series, Applied Population and Community Ecology evaluates theory in population and community ecology using a case study of feral pigs, birds and plants in the high country of south-eastern Australia. In sequence, the book reviews the relevant theory and uses long-term research over a quarter of a century on the population ecology of feral pigs and then community ecology of birds and plants, to evaluate the theory. The book brings together into one volume, research results of many observational, experimental and modelling studies and directly compares them with those from related studies around the world. The implications of the results for future wildlife management are also discussed. Intended readers are ecologists, graduate students in ecology and wildlife management and conservation and pest managers.

The Outlaw Legend: A Cultural Tradition in Britain, America and Australia

The Outlaw Legend: A Cultural Tradition in Britain, America and Australia

Highwaymen, badmen and bushrangers, both mythical and historical, have been part of folklore for centuries. Remembered and recreated through song, stories and film, this cultural tradition has been remarkably resilient across time and place. Graham Seal shows that these famous "social bandits" share many characteristics, particularly as anti-authority figures, and are best understood within class, ethnic and national struggles. From Robin Hood to outlaws in cyberspace, this book is an important study for folklorists.
