Description:

A new wagtastic mystery.
Monty, the adorable, food-obsessed Golden Retriever will do anything for his owner, Detective Constable Rose Sidebottom.
Of course, as these things go, Monty is no ordinary dog and Rose is no ordinary hooman.
Monty's super-smart nose and network of unique informers, and Rose's uncanny ability to spot liars make them a funny and formidable team.
When Rose is on sick leave a stranger begs for their help to find a missing person. The case soon becomes a murder investigation, and Rose's boss warns her not to interfere.
But, when dogs start disappearing too, Monty and Rose have no choice but to track down the culprits by doing what they do best - together.

Description:

In 1994, Michael Bernard Kelly recorded six video lectures for the Erospirit Research Institute. The Erotic Contemplative charted a spirituality for gay and lesbian Christians grounded in the contemplative, mystical traditions of the church. Dr Joseph Kramer, who commissioned the lectures, writes: "His powerful words ... seemed to come straight from his heart and right into mine. I told Michael that he was offering transformative guidance, like Joseph Campbell did in his Hero's Journey. 'You have described the Mystic's Journey for Gay and Lesbian Christians.' "
The lectures, originally released in 1995, were digitised and re-released in 2020. Now this transcription of all the lectures is published for the first time, and includes a study guide to the series prepared by Michael Kelly.
"The Erotic Contemplative" is the most powerful and insightful study of Gay Spirituality that I know of. I have watched 'The Road from Emmaus' lecture three times, and still find new riches!" - John J. McNeill, PhD. Author of The Church and the Homosexual.

Description:

The eighth book in the Grafton Everest series sees the hapless ex-President of the Republic of Australia, Dr Professor Grafton Everest, caught up in a web of international espionage and intrigue that he is hopelessly ill-equipped to handle.
Abandoned to his own inadequate devices when his wife Janet departs on a world tour, with his home invaded by his now broke daughter and son-in-law, Grafton accepts an assignment with the United Nations to investigate electoral fraud in Russia. The reason is not only to get out of the house; an old letter from his mother, addressed to someone in the Soviet Union fifty years ago, suggests that Grafton may not be the only child that he always thought he was.
Grafton’s mission to Moscow and his search for this mysterious sibling take him far from the Russian capital, deep into the icy wastes of Siberia and even deeper in a tangled conspiracy whose roots extend back to the Cold War and even as far back as the Russian Revolution.

Description:

Let’s face it: a chasm separates the experience of reading an article on a screen or in a newspaper, and giving yourself over to a good book. No matter how well-written an article may be, when you read it online or in newspaper, myriad distractions jostle for attention and jangle your nerves. Settle in to read the same piece in a book and the experience is transformed!
In this engagingly reflective and deeply passionate collection, Dvir Abramovich takes the reader on a fascinating pilgrimage through the landscapes of the ever-changing Jewish world, an extraordinary tour that demonstrates the full range of his observational powers.
Bristling with the author’s signature eloquence and erudition, this ambitious volume brings together a series of trenchant essays that tackle the momentous political and cultural shifts that have marked the Jewish world in the twenty-first century.
With candour and insight, Abramovich explores an expanse of topics such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, antisemitism, Holocaust trivialisation, the rise of neo-Nazism, education, the nature of extremism, and the role of memory, training his eye on the issues that illuminate the times we live in, and holding nothing back.

Description:

Lasting barely two centuries throughout the 1700s and 1800s, the Industrial Revolution in Britain propelled the country into the role of the world's premier industrial nation. Known as the 'midwife of the Industrial Revolution' coal was, literally, the driving force behind this power.
Although referred to as 'the black diamond', coal is not a thing of beauty, yet like the true diamond, it is representative of power and wealth.
Coal mining usually evokes images of tough men, glistening with the sweat of underground toil. We talk about man-power and manual labour; the industry has become synonymous with men. Rarely, if ever, do women come to mind, yet, until an Act of 1942 banned them from working down the mines, women worked alongside men, their toil equally as gruelling in conditions jut as appalling. Forbidden by Victorian prudery from working underground, they were replaced, at much greater expense to the mine owners, by ponies.
The efforts of these women, every bit as responsible as men for creating Britain's once greatest industry, have rarely been acknowledged.
During the 1926 general strike and lockout, Herbert Smith, President of the Miners' Federation of Great Britain, reported that half the attendees at union meetings were women, "And these", he insisted, "are always the toughest half."
This book tells of the history of coal and coal mining from mediaeval times to the demise of the industry in Britain in the 1990s, and describes women's role in this history and how it affected their lives.
Through a combination of historical narrative, fiction and biography, the book gives a voice to these diminished 'others' - wives, mothers and daughters - whose persistence, courage, pride and sacrifice also contributed to the profits of wealthy mine owners.
Their stories are told through the prism of historical events - the frightened little girl forced to work alone in subterranean darkness, the poverty-stricken young woman confronting an unwanted pregnancy, those enduring the loss of sons and partners to a deadly occupation and women who, through adversity, took the opportunity to publicly reveal their collective strength.
Gentle and gruff, warm-hearted and implacable, these battlers against grime, beaters of carpets, painters, decorators and cooks, activists and staunch supporters of strikes and lockouts, underpinned the foundations of Britain's coal industry.
Woven through this book is the true story of the author's mother, a miner's daughter. Her life too was hard and closely entwined with coal mining to which she made, over many years, a considerable contribution not only to the industry but to the mining communities in which she worked.

Description:

In 1932, Ion Idriess was one of those who set out from tiny port of Derby with the ending of the Wet season, moving through the rugger Kimberleys towards the developing goldfield of Tennant's Creek. This is the story of his wanderings in the 1930s and what he heard and saw along the way; at a time when wireless and air and motor transport were rapidly changing life in the North and North-west: but when the age of pioneers, of heroic journeys, terrifying loneliness, and violent death, had not yet passed away.
Back in print after 60 years.

Description:

The world as we know it has been ravaged by violence and environmental disaster, society has been split into exclusive zones to protect what little is left: divided by Air, Water, Soil and Fire, each zone trades what they can to survive.
Certainly life is difficult, particularly as a fifth zone the Prestige Zone regularly takes what they like to ensure their privileged life continues to thrive.
But when 16 year old Lawlie Pearce's mother is killed, it becomes clear that the tenuous peace between the zones is on the verge of unravelling.
With a thirst for vengeance, Lawlie leaves AirZone to discover the truth and seek justice for her mother. Even if she has to bring down the biggest enemy of all: Sceptre, the leader of the Prestige Zone that dominates the world that is Virozone.

Walkabout

Arthur W. Upfield

Description:

Arthur Upfield is known internationally for his crime novels featuring Bony, the Aboriginal Detective. In these thirteen stories written for Walkabout magazine between 1934 and 1949 and published in book form for the first time, readers will travel well beyond the cities, aided by maps and original photographs - through Cooper's Creek, visiting Lake Frome in South Australia, patrol the rabbit-proof fence in the West, pearling in Broome or go angling for Swordfish at Bermagui. Many of these stories give colour and detail to his more celebrated novels using the same settings as his crime novels. Another describes the Australian Geographical Society's 5000 mile venture from Perth to the Kimberleys and back, which was led by Upfield in 1948.
Truly a book to remind us of the "walkabout" - a journey (originally on foot) undertaken by the Australian Aboriginal in order to live in the traditional manner.
