It is exquisite. Read it. It changed how I think. Was her death an accident, as the inquest claimed? Or had she committed suicide, or even been murdered? Now a mother herself, Shalmi- child with a loving family, lots of friends and seemingly limitless opyev depicts in urgent vignettes her emotional journeys as an portunity lying ahead of her. After the crime was reported a veil was quiwomen, wayward or otherwise; her tumultuous pit-stop in etly drawn life was supposed to go on. And then one day, many years later, when never knew. Braided into her physical journey is a metaphorical exploration of the she is married and has a small son, she receives a call from the police saying that they think many surrogate mothers Shalmiyev sought out in place of her own—whether in they have finally caught the man who raped her, a man who has hidden in plain sight for decbooks, art, lovers, or other lost souls banded together by their misfortunes.
This, the first biography of Eric Hobsbawm, is far more than a study of a professional historian. It is a study of an era. From the vast underground mycelial networks by which trees communicate to the ice-blue depths of glacial moulins, and from North Yorkshire to the Lofoten Islands, Robert Macfarlane traces a voyage through the worlds beneath our feet. From the love hotels of Shinjuku to the appalling fire-storms of in which many more thousands of people died than in Hiroshima or Nagasaki , from the death of Mishima to the impact of the Tohoku earthquake of They have survived for centuries by taking whales with bamboo harpoons, but now are being pushed toward collapse by the encroachment of the modern world.
When Robert McCabe first came to Mykonos in the summer of , he was one of perhaps 15 visitors on the island. But I was unprepared for how entertainingly she writes! I read this with pleasure. And what if your most deeply-held beliefs turn out to be…wrong? In Stop Being Reasonable, philosopher Eleanor Gordon-Smith tells gripping true stories that show the limits of human reason.
The Snowy Scheme was an extraordinary. Rich and evocative, this prize-winning account of the remarkable Snowy Scheme is available again for the 70th anniversary of this epic nation-building project. The excitement of planning party treats and games, wishing for gifts and the seemingly endless wait will resonate with young children. Perfect for ages 3 to 5. This new craft book from Lonely Planet is full of inspiration from around the world. Simple, clear illustrations of craft ideas are illustrated by photos and drawings, with an interesting background to each project.
Not all projects can realistically be made, the carved love spoons from Wales for example. But there is a history of the custom of giving spoons, and the meaning of the carved symbols, and a space or designing your own. Some projects, like the flower garlands from Hawaii are readily accessible, and some a bit more advanced, eg. Tania and I were extremely impressed by this: the concept, the backstory, and especially the book, which promotes body positivity and self-acceptance in girls aged 6 and upwards adults included.
In picture book format Love Your Body depicts all sorts of body types, normalising ethnic and physical diversity, as well as perceived imperfections such as stretch marks, skin irregularities and cellulite. The focus is on our bodies as amazing physical instruments that allow us to move, to carry, to play or communicate, and to function in the world. Sanders encourages self-care in various forms from eating well to wholesome attitudes, and stresses appreciation of our bodies rather than wasting energy trying to conform to external and unrealistic norms.
As a representation of fundamental values, quietly subverting destructive messages, this deserves to have a similar impact to that of the popular Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls ilk. Very highly recommended! This collection of traditional and contemporary poems chosen by Jackie French is perfect for reading aloud, or for quiet reflection.
Had Tyler Jones not charmed his way into an illicit solo mission the night before his final space academy exam, undoubtedly he would have fulfilled all predictions and topped his year, then chosen his own crew from other elite graduates. Instead, out in interdimensional space he rescued year-old Auri from her cryopod in a damaged craft before returning to the academy—too late to sit his exam.
Strap yourself in for a thrilling cosmic quest with a brilliant cast of characters human and alien, plenty of snarky humour, and warp speed action. This hilarious picture book broke every rule of straightforward story narrative and book design. More than twenty-five years after it was first published, it still makes me laugh.
He is constantly interrupted by the noisy, complaining Little Red Hen. The book soon descends into bedlam as each story appears. Several characters are squashed by the Table of Contents and the book begins again. The Frog Prince is simply a large frog who gives the disgusted princess a slimy kiss. In The Princess and the Pea, the pea under the twenty mattresses is replaced by a bowling ball. Stories break in upon each other regularly, with Jack using each new story to distract the Giant from eating him. The Stinky Cheese Man himself is a work of art: made of awful smelling cheese with two olives for eyes and a slice of bacon for a mouth.
He is cooked in an oven, comes to life, runs away and likes to scare people and animals with his awful smell… until he meets his fate. Wellknown YA authors including Lauren Oliver, Sara Zarr and Tom Pollock reveal their experiences of mental illness—their own or that of someone close—in an anthology both raw and full of impact. Conditions such as anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, PTSD, ADHD, eating disorders, self-mutilation, neurodiversity and depression are candidly discussed, as are tips for recognising various illnesses, and possible strategies.
For teens this is a valuable resource to raise awareness of and destigmatise mental health problems, as well as to illuminate these illnesses, reassure anyone similarly suffering, and to jumpstart conversations and the search for personal coping mechanisms. Before humans took their first steps, there were billions of years of vibrant and varied life on earth.

Along the path Wolf gives colourful anecdotes of famous musicians that illustrate how great an impact mindfulness can have on accessing creative potential, in music or any kind of art. This book applies the emerging science behind the additional benefits that can be achieved by evenly distributing protein across the day. This includes incorporating protein-rich foods at regular meals, with an emphasis on greater protein intake at breakfast as part of a healthy eating plan.
This is for anyone wanting an evidence-based strategy for achieving weight loss or general weight management, and for people wanting to improve their lifestyle for healthy ageing. Each recipe has been tested by Emett in his home kitchen, and he includes guidance and advice for the home cook—discussing complexity, preparation, key elements, complements for planning a larger menu, and tips of the trade.
Over recipes chosen by Good Food editor Ardyn Bernoth from the chefs she charges every week to provide recipes for the Good Weekend. Many of the dishes go back to Moorish times—or earlier—and each of the 8 provinces has their own special dish. Eleanor Ford gives a personal, intimate portrait of a country and its cooking, the recipes exotic yet achievable—the food brought to life by stunning photography.

Blood on the Stone In 17th century Oxford, a detective stands up for justice in the face of sectarian hatred and fury, fomented and exploited for political gain.
He must foil a conspiracy against the Crown, and rescue a young woman from a grisly ritualistic death. Angel Martin, just 11 years old and recently orphaned, moves into a boarding house run by dour Missus Potts, who makes Angel do chores before and after school, when she bothers to go to school. Angel prefers to go to the Art Gallery but is told that she has to wear shoes—for her a seeming impossibility.
She also makes friends with the tram driver and a fisherman at the Bay, as well as the owner of the baby shop, who used to sell baby jackets knitted by her mother and comes up with a second-hand pair of sandals and a dress for Art Gallery visits. Things change when Uncle George appears on the scene, but with Stead you must expect the unexpected. Angel is quite captivating, as indeed are the other colourful characters in this very rewarding novel. Jacqueline Kent has written a memoir of her brief marriage to Kenneth Cook, well known as the author of the classic Wake in Fright.
However, when she began editing The Killer Koala, his most recent book of short stories, an attraction developed between them which led to the marriage that she describes in Beyond Words: A Year with Kenneth Cook. Attraction was one thing, but their union was far from easy. He was a chauvinist, drank and smoked too much and was being pursued by creditors after a bankruptcy.
Unable to find a hotel room, they camped by the Macquarie river, where he had a fatal heart attack. Adrift for a time, she eventually found love again, and was able to set out on a new path, becoming an award-winning biographer. Hugh Stretton is one of my heroes, and historian Graeme Davison has now published Hugh Stretton: Selected Writings as a tribute to this great Australian public intellectual—whose opinions on urban planning and a great many other social and economic issues have been so influential.
Stretton warned us about the drawbacks of economic rationalism decades before many of his colleagues woke up. Davison rightly praises him for the power of his words, the freshness of his thoughts and his lapidary style. Stretton always believed in civilized discussion. He has now written a sequel, The New Silk Roads, in which he says that, though we may now be obsessed with Brexit and Trump, the stuff that really matters is taking place in the East.
While we wonder whether it will be a hard Brexit or whether Mr Trump will build his Great Wall, Frankopan asks rather different questions. How, he wants to know, is Russia engaging with Iran, central Asia and China? Even as the West seems to become more fractious and polarised, the New Silk Road countries seem to be working more harmoniously together. They are, he suggests, also likely to reap an impressive dividend from Belt and Road infrastructure spending. The 21st Century is, he believes, likely to be the Asian Century and the sooner we come to terms with this the better.
But Grant knows this is not where the story ends. Australia Day asks the questions that have to be asked: Who are we? What is our country? How do we move forward? In this honest and revealing memoir, she takes us inside the day-to-day groundwork required to bring about reforms in areas like affirmative action, equal pay, superannuation, childcare, parental leave and work-family issues.
Mathews brings wisdom and experience to it, reflecting on where we are today, with suggestions for further reform. This is a vital source for policy makers and anyone interested in women, work and families. It was also a site of post-war social engineering that helped create a diverse multicultural nation.
This prize-winning account of the remarkable Snowy Scheme is available again for the 70th anniversary of this epic nation-building project. Would Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson have ever crossed the Blue Mountains without the help of the local Aboriginal people? The invaluable role of local guides in this event is rarely recognised. Yet this participation, if admitted at all, was barely acknowledged. Through and , the issues that attracted his analysis were disarmament, the growth of McCarthyism in the United States, the formal division of Germany, and the war in Korea.
Early in the afternoon of 9 February , during the worst drought and heatwave south-eastern Australia had experienced in over a century, two separate bushfires raged towards the massive Hazelwood open-pit brown-coal mine, near Morwell in the Latrobe Valley.
Where London July 2018
The fires overwhelmed local fire-fighting efforts and sent a sky full of embers sailing onto millions of square metres of exposed, highly flammable brown coal. The Hazelwood mine fire burned out of control for 45 days. As the air filled with toxic smoke and ash, residents of the Latrobe Valley became ill, afraid—and angry. Up against an unresponsive corporation and an indifferent government, the community banded together, turning tragedy into a political fight. Tom Doig reveals the decades of decisions that led to the fire, and gives an intimate account of the first moments of the blaze and the dark months that followed.
New York, Members of the Clan-na-Gael—agitators for Irish freedom from the English yoke—hatch a daring plan to free 6 Irish political prisoners from the most remote prison in the British Empire, Fremantle Prison in WA. For Ireland, who had suffered English occupation for years, a successful escape was an inspirational call to arms. For America, it was a chance to slap back at Britain for their support of the South in the Civil War; for England, a humiliation.
And for a young Australia, still not sure if it was Great Britain in the South Seas or worthy of being an independent country in its own right, it was proof that Great Britain was not unbeatable. Damon Gameau has spent most of his adult years overwhelmed into inaction by the problem of climate change and its devastating effects on the planet—so he decided to imagine what the world could look like in , if we all decided to start doing things differently, right now.
It demonstrates that climate change is a practical problem that can be tackled by each of us, one small step at a time, and that we can make a genuine difference—if we know what to do. Brimming with practical wisdom and even 50 delicious recipes, Gameau offers an empowering vision to become the change you want to see in the world. He became an expert in 2 kinds of investigations that are critical to American national security: Russian organized crime—which is inextricably linked to the Russian state—and terrorism. After decades of war, few Afghans remember what it is like to live in peace, and many have never known a time without war.
Bush reflect on the causes of the crisis, why it was so damaging, and what it ultimately took to prevent a second Great Depression. Sugar can be as habitforming as cocaine, researchers tell us, and social media apps are hooking our kids. They could do it again. In the third book in his trilogy Guns, Germs and Steel and Collapse , Jared Diamond reveals how successful nations recover from crisis—showing how seven countries have survived defining upheavals in the recent past, from the forced opening up of Japan and the Soviet invasion of Finland to the Pinochet regime in Chile, through selective change, a process of painful self-appraisal and adaptation more commonly associated with personal trauma.
Looking ahead to the future, he investigates whether the United States, and the world, are squandering their natural advantages and are on a devastating path towards catastrophe. Is this fate inevitable? Or can we still learn from the lessons of the past? Pussy Riot founder Nadya Tolokonnikova, a guerilla guide to radical protest and joyful political resistance—as indispensible to confronting, say, your domineering mother-in-law or your local city council as it is to helping foment an ongoing and ever-escalating insurrection against, say, a sexist, racist, nepotistic powermad oligarchy threatening to destroy democracy as we know it.
Every year, air pollution prematurely kills seven million people around the world. Water Protectors knew this battle for Native sovereignty had already been fought many times before, and that, even after the encampment was gone, their anti-colonial struggle would continue. For rare-book collectors, an original copy of the Gutenberg Bible—of which there are fewer than 50 in existence—represents the ultimate prize. Margaret L. Davis recounts 5 centuries in the life of one copy, from its creation by Johannes Gutenberg, through the hands of monks, an earl, the heir to the Worcestershire sauce empire, and a nuclear physicist to its ultimate resting place, a steel vault in Tokyo.
The result is an unforgettable saga of a building that, like the Soviet Union itself, became a haunted house, forever disturbed by the ghosts of the disappeared. It saw 12 million Africans forced onto slave ships, and had seismic consequences for Africa. The first extensive archaeological excavations of Masada began in the s—but because the mass suicide was recorded by only one ancient author, the Jewish historian Josephus, some scholars question if the event ever took place.
Drawing on the voices of atomic bomb survivors and the new science of forensic archaeology, Charles Pellegrino describes the events and the aftermath of two days in August when nuclear devices, detonated over Japan, changed life on Earth forever. As the first city targeted, Hiroshima is the focus of most histories. Pellegrino gives equal weight to the bombing of Nagasaki, symbolized by the thirty people who are known to have fled Hiroshima for Nagasaki - where they arrived just in time to survive the second bomb.
He explores the neurological basis of spatial orientation within the hippocampus—without which people inhabit a dream state, becoming amnesiacs incapable of finding their way, recalling the past, or imagining the future. Extraordinary Insects by Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson Insects influence our ecosystem like a ripple effect on water.
Where does it come from, what does it do, and why, above all, does life need it? Ants and bees that navigate using patterns of light invisible to humans. Salmon that return to their birthplace by following their noses. Baleen whales that swim thousands of miles while holding a rock-steady course and birds that can locate their nests on a tiny island after crisscrossing an entire ocean. David Barrie takes a tour of the cutting-edge science of animal navigation. Alex Rogers has spent the past 30 years studying life in the deep ocean.
In this book, he voyages to an alien world—the edge of what is known about our oceans today. Replete with stunning photography of underwater life, The Deep is a magisterial study of a world we are only just beginning to understand. And what if your most deeply-held beliefs turn out to be wrong? Philosopher Eleanor Gordon-Smith tells gripping true stories that show the limits of human reason. All of them radically alter their beliefs about the things that matter most.
What makes them change course? What does this say about our own beliefs? And, in an increasingly divided world, what does it teach us about how we might change the minds of others? It would make them better, though—is anything less a moral failure? Can we lead a fundamentally decent life without taking such drastic steps? He explores how we should approach the many relationships in our lives—with friends, family, animals, people in need—through the use of a more forgiving, if no less fundamentally serious, moral compass. Tom Croucher applies a forensiclike focus to interpreting the first 5 chapters of the Bible lifting Adam out of the mists of pre-history and placing him squarely within the context of a known period of human history—the early, literate period of Sumer in southern Mesopotamia.
Lacan abandoned his old family for a new partner, Sylvia Bataille the wife of Georges Bataille , and another daughter, born a few months after Sibylle. In one sense, then, A Father presents the voice of one who, while bearing his name, had been erased. So many of us believe that we are free to shape our own destiny. What if our lives are largely predetermined, hardwired in our brains—and our choices over what we eat, who we fall in love with, even what we believe are not real choices at all?
But when a devastating event hits her personally, she realises that, before being able to help her patients, she must first learn how to help herself. This is the story of a therapist at a critical life juncture, and her own therapist, Wendell, a veteran therapist with an unconventional style. Anxiety is natural. Calm is learned. Learn about the brain chemicals that make us feel threatened and the chemicals that make us feel safe. The Cristero Rebellion, church-state conflict. Rival Crock-pot Slow Cooker Cuisine.
