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.

Pacific Fury: How Australia and Her Allies Defeated the Japanese

Pacific Fury: How Australia and Her Allies Defeated the Japanese

Peter Thompson presents, for the first time, an account of the conflict that places Australian voices and action at the heart of the struggle. Based on exclusive interviews with eyewitnesses and written with all the pace and verve you would expect of a master storyteller, Pacific Fury brings the people and the battles of the Second World War to life in a sensational history not to be bettered in a generation. 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.

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.

Australia's Century of Surf: How a Big Island at the Bottom of the World Became the Greatest Surfing Nation on Earth

Australia's Century of Surf: How a Big Island at the Bottom of the World Became the Greatest Surfing Nation on Earth

In 100 years, surfing in Australia has morphed from exotic Pacific Island curio to regimented training for life savers, from counterculture revolution to respectable mainstream sport. Along the way, it has shaped coastal migrations, spawned vast business empires and design innovations, produced sports stars and spectacular casualties in equal measure, helped the beach overtake the bush as Australians' national, natural habitat of choice. No other sport has been through such profound cultural shifts or had such far-reaching influence on our national identity. This book marks the centenary of the great Hawaiian Olympic swimmer and surfer Duke Kahanamoku?s historic visit to Australia in 1914. Duke was not the first to ride a surfboard in Australia, just one of the historical misnomers uncovered in this comprehensive and insightful text. But Duke?s historic surfboard riding displays in the summer of 1914/15 set in motion a great wave of oceanic obsession that continues to this day. The story of Australian surfing is largely one of schisms: between freedom seeking beach-goers and censorial puritans, between the quasi-militaristic regiments and volunteerism of surf life savers and the selfish pleasure-seeking pursuits of board riders, the generational and attitudinal gulf between longboarders and shortboarders, professionals and so-called? soul? surfers, territorial tensions between locals and tourists. Many of our most dramatic cultural conflicts have been played out on the nation?s beaches, from the pitched battles between rockers and surfers in the? 60s, to the teen gender politics of Puberty Blues and the racial clashes of the Cronulla riots.

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.

Constitutional Conventions in Australia: An Introduction to the Unwritten Rules of Australia's Constitutions (The Anthem-ASP Australasia Publishing Programme)

Constitutional Conventions in Australia: An Introduction to the Unwritten Rules of Australia's Constitutions (The Anthem-ASP Australasia Publishing Programme)

Australia?s constitutions tell only part of the story. They omit or barely mention many of the essential and well-known elements of the system of government, such as the cabinet, the prime minister or premier, ministerial responsibility or the opposition. This work fills that void by explaining the nature of conventions, how they arise, how they are altered, as well as their operation and development. This is a book for anyone who has an interest in understanding the complexities and mysteries of the unwritten rules of Australian systems of government.
