Australia You Little* Beauty: Inside Test Cricket's Dream Team

Australia You Little* Beauty: Inside Test Cricket's Dream Team

Justin Langer scored more centuries than Ian Chappell, Doug Walters, or Bill Lawry and had a better average than Mark Taylor, David Boon, or Mark Waugh yet lived almost every moment of his glittering Test career as if it was his last. In this intimate and at times poignant account, Langer looks back on the team, locker room antics, and onfield triumphs which made up his 105-Test innings as a member of one of the game's greatest teams. Peer behind the scenes to relive the night they soaked the English locker rooms at Lords in beer, the midnight frolic around the SCG in their underpants and baggy green caps, and the Caribbean dinner which cost the Australian Cricket Board $16,000. What was it like to face the barrage of the West Indies and Pakistan attacks at their peak, who was the best bowler he ever faced, and why did an Adelaide pool table help Shane Warne hone his flipper. It's a journey from the world's great cricket grounds to the poorest areas of the sub-continent, Africa, and the West Indies, and the luxuries of a feted sporting champion to the day Matthew Hayden arrived in India with a gas stove in his cricket bag. Learn how meditation and martial arts helped him battle his chronic fear of failure and read first-hand snippets from childhood sweetheart Sue Langer who shines a unique light on life as a cricketer's wife.

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.

Dirty Money: The True Cost of Australia's Mineral Boom

Dirty Money: The True Cost of Australia's Mineral Boom

They put the boys into the Anvil mining truck. They came for my dad. I asked them 'where are you taking him?' and they didn't answer." The Australian mining company trucks had come roaring into the African village and disgorged over 100 heavily armed Government soldiers. The rebels, protesting at the way the Australian company was mining the Congolese silver and copper without giving anything back to the local community, had already surrendered. But their looting of food and fuel from the Anvil Mining depot at Kilwa could not go unanswered. The Australians flew in the Government troops, loaded them onto their trucks and then stood back while they rounded up the rebellion's 'sympathisers'. "We started running but the soldiers caught and searched our belongings, they arrested my dad and two other boys," said Albert Kitanika. The soldiers refused to say where they were taking his father. "They took him 50 metres down the road where they shot and stabbed him to death." A United Nations investigation found Mr Kitanika was one of at least 100 people summarily executed in the Government operation in 2004. Afterwards the Australian company issued a press release praising the Government for its rapid response. Asked about its role in transporting the troops, Anvil's chief executive officer Bill Turner said: "So what". Mining is a dirty business. This book reveals that the real dirt lies in the boardrooms of some of Australia's biggest companies. The United Nations named Katumba Mwanke, an adviser to Congo President Joseph Kabila, as one of the people responsible for the illegal exploitation of Congo's natural wealth. Anvil Mining put Mr Mwanke on the board of directors for three years. The Australian company has steadfastly refused to sign the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, designed to prevent dodgy deals, and is instead considering a tie-up with British mining company Trafigura, which is responsible for one of the worst pollution scandals in recent history. When details of deaths arising from Trafigura's illegal dumping of tonnes of sulphur-contaminated toxic waste were raised, Trafigura attempted to stifle reports in the British Parliament with a super-injunction. Anvil Mining is just one of many Australian mining companies whose dubious operating methods have been called into question both at home and overseas. At home mining is impacting on the lives of every Australian. In Esperance in Western Australia a doctor called for the lead levels in children to be checked after 4000 birds died in a few months. Lead from WA mines was suspected. In Kalgoorlie Newmont mining admitted dumping 7000 tonnes of poisonous mercury over the city in just 12 months. It causes chronic brain and kidney damage. In Tasmania 30km of the Arthur River has been killed by the run-off from the Mt Bischoff tin mine. In Queensland illegal mining pollution is damaging the Barrier Reef while in Darwin a uranium mine sits in the middle of Kakadu National Park - both World Heritage sites. These are issues that affect Australians today. Pollution from mining is entering water courses and the drinking supply of every one of us. The toxic effects are deadly. Overseas, Australians like to boast of their green credentials but it is our mining companies who are representing a very different side of Australia to the world. Companies like CSPB, part of Wesfarmers which owns supermarket chain Coles, which buys phosphate from Western Sahara. Exiles from the region claim Australian money is being used to support an oppressive regime and maintain an illegal Moroccan occupation. Or the Australian owned Esmerelda Mine in Romania, which was responsible for a massive cyanide spill that spread pollution across three countries. Despite this Australian Mining companies oppose legislation that would apply the same standards to their work offshore as they have at home.

From the Mountains to the Bush: Italian Migrants Write Home from Australia 1860-1962

From the Mountains to the Bush: Italian Migrants Write Home from Australia 1860-1962

This path-breaking study explores the experience of Valtellinese migrants to Australia between 1860 and 1953. Jackie Templeton employs the letters exchanged between the Italian migrants and their families to trace the extraordinary story of these sojourners who journeyed from the mountains to the bush. Complemented by fascinating family and social histories, 124 letters are reproduced in full. The Valtellinese did vital work and enriched their communities of adoption from the mining camps of Western Australia to the cane fields of north Queensland. Many long-term sojourners became permanent migrants who inevitably had to ask themselves, "Where is home?" Letters were the means by which, during long absences from home and loved ones, they attempted to maintain contact with their parents, siblings, wives and children, and to preserve some sense of continuity and stability. Today their letters allow us to peer behind the "salt-water curtain" and understand both sides of the migration story.

Fixed: Cheating, Doping, Rape and Murder. . . The Inside Track on Australia's Racing Industry

Past the glitz and glitter of Melbourne Cup winner lies the murky world of Australia's racing industry Dapper horse trainer Les Samba was in Melbourne for the annual yearling sales when he turned down an Italian meal with racing contacts saying: "I have got to meet a bloke." Just hours later he was laying dead, in the middle of the road with blood pouring from five bullet wounds to his head and body. Racing in Australia has a dark and dangerous underbelly. Powerful people play for high stakes in an industry worth $14 billion a year. And they don't play nicely. Yearling sales are rigged, horses doped, races fixed, and taxes dodged by high rolling punters. Every day huge sums of money are made by bookies who don't want to put any of it back into the industry. Meanwhile jockeys starve and sweat themselves to the point of delirium?many dying or suffering permanent injury while racing for as little as $130 a race. Young female jockeys are raped, often by the trainers they work for. Horses suffer terribly too?every year almost half of Australia's racehorses are sent to slaughter, fuelling the booming pet food industry. This is the true story every racing fan needs to read. It goes past the glorious image of the Melbourne Cup winner holding his hand aloft to reveal what really goes on in the dark and murky corridors of Australian racing. It tells you about the bent jockeys, cheating trainers, crooked owners, and greedy bookies. Everyone wants an angle in racing, this book tells you just how often that means the race is Fixed.

Old Masters: Australia's Great Bark Artists

Old Masters: Australia's Great Bark Artists

Bark painting, as practiced by Aboriginal artists of Arnhem Land for millennia, is one of the great traditions of world art, yet it was only recognized as such late in the 20th century. Old Masters: Australia?s Great Bark Artists highlights the work of 40 master painters who have carried one of the oldest continuing traditions of art into the modern era. It features the paintings of Narritjin Maymuru, Yirawala, Mawalan Marika, David Malangi, and their contemporaries. These men of high ritual standing were not only artists, but also ceremonial and clan leaders, philosophers, advocates for land rights and human rights, ambassadors, and politicians, who recognized the power of art as the most eloquent means to build bridges between Aboriginal and European society. The book includes essays by renowned scholars of Aboriginal art, biographies and portraits of the artists, and 122 full-color plates of the paintings, made between 1948 and 1988, from the National Museum of Australia?s rich and extensive collection. This profile of the Museum?s unique collection will serve as lasting documentation of these rare and fragile works that have never before been exhibited or published as a collection.

Peter Thompson presents, for the first time, an account of the conflict that places Australian voices and action at the heart of the struggle.

After a conflict that took an unimaginable number of lives and ended with the unleashing of the most powerful weapon the world had ever seen, the Allies emerged victorious. Australia, however, was criticized by Churchill and his generals for showing cowardice in the face of the enemy and for not caring about the fate of other nations. The endorsement of these claims by several military historians today shows that the smear has not gone away. Until now.

Destination Australia: Migration to Australia since 1901

Destination Australia: Migration to Australia since 1901

In 1901 most Australians were loyal, white subjects of the British Empire with direct connections to Britain. Within a hundred years, following an unparalleled immigration program, its population was one of the most diverse on earth. No other country has achieved such radical social and demographic change in so short a time. Destination Australia tells the story of this extraordinary transformation. Against the odds, this change has caused minimal social disruption and tension. While immigration has generated some political and social anxieties, Australia has maintained a stable democracy and a coherent social fabric. One of the impressive achievements of this book is in explaining why this might be so. Eric Richards recounts the experiences of many individual migrants from all over the world, examines the dramas and challenges of officials involved in this grand experiment and ends up telling a truly remarkable story. Compelling and revealing, Destination Australia is essentially the Australian story of the twentieth century.

Flora of Australia Volume 51: Mosses 1 (Flora of Australia Series)

Flora of Australia Volume 51: Mosses 1 is the first of three volumes describing and illustrating more than 1000 species of Australian mosses. Together they will represent the first national account of these diverse and ecologically significant organisms. The main features of the first volume are: an introduction documenting 200 years of research on Australian mosses; moss classification and an overview of morphology and sexuality; an account of ecology and biodiversity; the origin and evolution of mosses; fossil bryophytes; and a key to the more than 300 genera of mosses known from Australia and its island territories. This volume includes traditional, Flora of Australia-style descriptions of 22 families, 42 genera and 238 species and infra-specific taxa, including synonymy, specimen citations and notes on habitat and distribution. Distribution maps are provided for species and infra-specific taxon as well as more than 50 pages of line-art illustrating habit and anatomy and 64 colour photographs.
