Description:

Australia today is facing a health crisis such as we have never seen before. Rates of cancer, obesity, diabetes, asthma, ADHD and behavioural disorders in our children are all alarmingly high. What is happening and what can we do to safeguard our own health and the health of our children? Our diets must be part of the problem and fixing our diets must be a large part of the solution. The use of food additives in our everyday foods has increased so rapidly over the past 50 years that it is getting difficult to find foods which are additive free. Although most food additives are safe, there are many which are known to be harmful. Additive Alert will tell you quickly and easily which ones you need to avoid and why.

Aesthetics and the Divine
Engaging Artists, Fostering Religious Art
Shimon Dovid Cowen

Description:

"Rabbi Cowen's creative engagement with these contemporary artists reveals how spirituality can enhance the power of the visual image, the emotional persuasiveness of the literary text, and the neurological impact of music ..." - Mel Alexenberg, formerly Professor of Art at Columbia University
 
In the realm of contemporary aesthetic high culture, there are many painters, writers and composers of great talent, but few with deep religious knowledge and belief. In the realm of faith, there are many with deep belief and religious knowledge, but very few with developed great artistic talent. Is there some way of making good the absent but essential combination of artistic prowess and religious depth required to produce great religious artworks in the various artistic media?
 
In response to this question, this book addresses the theory and practice of engaging significant artists – not necessarily religiously learned or committed – to draw forth from them genuinely religious high art. After exploring the concept of the religious artwork, it documents three religious-creative encounters through which important religious artworks emerged, in the realms of painting, literature and music. It concludes with thoughts on the methodology and kinds of successful engagements between religion and aesthetics – with broader implications for education to religious art.

After the Ultimate Virus

Description:

In the wake of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the world learned some big lessons. But not enough. Life eventually returned to normal, affluence and profligate activity increased - it was The Best of Times. But then the gap between the Haves and the Have-Nots grew.
 
Finally, halfway through the 21st century urban riots, drone warfare and nuclear war, followed by the Ultimate Virus, wiped out the world's population - save a little colony on Australia's Bondi Beach, which sets about rebuilding a new world.
 
Written before the COVID-19 pandemic, in response to the conjecture of Australian Professor Huw Price, Head of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk at Cambridge University, that a mega virus was one of the major existential threats facing our society, this is a story of a great love affair, political intrigue, danger and heroic - and mock-heroic - endeavour, as well as a warning of what could be in store for us all.

Ahad Ha-am
The Zionism of the Future
Israel Kipen
9781742982441
2013-04-01
A$9.99
Hybrid Publishers

Description:

A classic text on Zionism for the 21st Century.
Since its initial publication in 1997, 'Ahad Ha-am: The Zionism of the Future' has become the definitive and standard study of one of Zionism's most towering and influential figures. The republication of this classic text as an e-book is a cause for celebration for students of history, academics and the general public. No one knows Ahad Ha-am better or is better suited to deal with the life and thoughts of the icon of Hebraic cultural nationalism, and with the multivalent debates and conversations his ideas provoked. The book fills a vital gap in the study of early Zionism and of its greatest purveyor of serious ideas.
- Dr Dvir Abramovich, The University of Melbourne

Description:

Drawing is not just Judd’s biggest passion; it’s how he escapes when his parents are fighting.
When he sketches, Judd enters a world of his own, a place where he can follow his dreams but just as his dreams are about to come true, reality catches up with him… Barely settled in her new high school, Kate is pulled into a strange, disorienting world. Inexplicable events are occurring around her and even in her sleep. Soon, her entire reality blends with her dream world.

Almost Invincible
A Biographical Novel of Mary Shelley, Author of Frankenstein
Suzanne Burdon

2014-05-01
A$9.99
Criteria Publishing

Description:

"She is singularly bold, somewhat imperious, and active of mind. Her desire of knowledge is great, and her perseverance in everything else she undertakes, almost invincible."
 
Mary Shelley began Frankenstein in 1814, when she was eighteen. By then, she had been living for two years in a scandalous relationship with the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, who was already married with children. The novel was conceived in a contest with him and Lord Byron to tell ghost stories.
 
When she eloped with Shelley, Mary had been quite prepared to suffer condemnation from society. It was much harder to cope with her jealousy of Claire, her step-sister, who had run away with them and was also in love with Shelley. During the nine turbulent years Mary and Shelley were together, Claire was the ever-present third, whose manipulative behaviour often drove Mary to despair. Shelley was little help - his unconventional attitudes to love strained her devotion to its limits.
 
They moved constantly throughout England, Switzerland and Italy, escaping creditors, censorious families and ill health. It was in Italy that they found their spiritual home, their 'paradise of exiles', but it was also there that the loss of her children nearly broke Mary's spirit.
 
Her writing became her grip on sanity, and Shelley never wavered from his belief in her creative genius - as she believed in his.

A$9.99
Hybrid Publishers

Description:

In so many ways, although personal accounts are at times difficult to read, this is a book celebrating the victory of the human spirit over personal tragedy. It is not a book of tears and sad stories, but inspiring lives where you cheer for sexual abuse survivors who show the way with courage to rebuild their lives and not let their experiences frame or shame them.’ – Dr Darlene Barriere, Trauma and Child Abuse Counsellor and Psychologist
 
In this confronting collection by victims of child sexual abuse, you will read not only of their horrific experiences as children, but also of their lifetime of living with the consequences and aftereffects of that abuse.
There has been silence for too long, and these stories, uncomfortable though they may be to read, should be hidden no longer. The contributors need a voice. They come from various backgrounds: white, Asian, Indigenous, Jewish – male and female.
It is important that their individual stories are told, and we honour their courage in giving their accounts to show the world that the scourge of child sexual abuse must be brought to light, and hopefully help our society to no longer allow it to be hidden or suppressed.
The aim of this book is to to encourage other victims to seek help and redress; also useful for healers and therapists of child sex abuse survivors and other traumatised people.
 
‘There is a need to hear these stories, to know what did happen and what is still happening. A need to not bury our heads and say “it won't happen to me” or “I will never let that happen to MY kid.”’ – Lauren White

An Unsentimental Memoir

A$9.99
Hybrid Publishers

Description:

"Alan Collins' memoir successfully straddles both history and literature. It is a memoir that has wry appeal to the seasoned Jewish historical reader and the novice alike with its keen observations and its pacey narrative, detailing the life of a young Jewish boy growing up in Bondi in the 30s and 40s. Collins, who died in March 2008 aged 79, leaves a compelling story about part of Australia's rich journey of immigration, particularly its Jewish roots." - Reviewed by Sally Spalding, Moorabbin Glen Eira Leader, January 2009
"Collins' memoir is an illuminating look at Sydney's lively Jewish community in the 1930s and 1940s. It is also a testament of courage and resilience. Collins somehow survived his childhood and went on to become a successful businessman, writer, husband and father." - Dianne Dempsey, The Age November 2008

Kerr Publishing

Description:

This book is not about drugs, it is about people. It is about those suffering from addiction and the struggles of the people around them.

Jackson Oppy has walked the road he describes, knows the pain of addiction and knows the road back to wellness, wholeness and stable family and social life.
'Am I Living With an Addict?' is the route map to wellness.
Jackson Oppy used drugs actively for 15 years. He and his family experienced all the pitfalls and trauma that comes with having a loved one in the grip of addiction and the hopelessness of believing that there was no way out.
After countless attempts to stop and after losing everything, Jackson entered recovery at age 35 and now lives alcohol- and drug-free. He now uses his experience in both active addiction and in recovery to help others at Hader Clinic in Melbourne. In his current role he deals with addicts and their families everyday, using his intimate knowledge of the problem and the solution.

Amanka Stories
Saving the Last Apes
Lou Grossfeldt; David Blissett
9781925556742
2021-09-07
A$11.99
Melbourne Books

(click here for links)

Description:

Amanka is a word from one of the languages used by people living in the rural north west of Uganda. It’s a beautiful, rich word that means ‘family’. Yet, in the forests and villages of this part of Uganda – and across much of tropical Africa and Asia – families are at war. In the narrowing margins between forest and farm, human and non-human, there is a growing conflict. A deadly conflict.
The Amanka Book Project has been coordinated by writer, David Blissett and primate curator, Lou Grossfeldt. They celebrate our closest living relatives, by sharing the stories and experiences of the people who are working, fighting, and sometimes risking their lives to save them. The focus is on all ape species (gorilla, orangutan, chimpanzee, bonobo and the gibbon family). These are stories of sacrifice and courage and hope; tears and happiness; love and loss. In each chapter, Lou and David speak with people who devote their lives to the conservation and wellbeing of the apes. This includes scientists, researchers, caregivers, vets, filmmakers and conservation advocates. Many of the stories in this book have never been told before and will give readers a direct insight into the day-to-day heartaches, challenges and joys of working with these intelligent, sentient beings.
‘We wrote this book to raise awareness of the plight of our ape family and to share the stories of the unsung heroes who are trying to help them. All contributors have donated to this project and profits from book sales will be donated to various ape conservation and enrichment programs or projects’ - Lou Grossfeldt and David Blissett.

Description:

Five Asian pieces, four from Kalimantan, Singapore, Taipei, Hong Kong, and one column piece from Samarinda, in one volume.
1. His Brow in Feathers, the Dyak Chieftain and his Equation for the Order of Time.
A Festival of Redemption, led by the Chief of the People Benuaq, Dyaks of the Central Lakes, Borneo.
His lake was once a mountain, which inverted its form in an act of compassion for people who were without fishing grounds. The people are grateful. They understand the force of will in such a feat.
2. Bugis Street Shoes.
Joey, a child of Singapore, makes his living in shoe-shine, from table to table in the restaurant mall Bugis Street, centre of the drag-scene, and since demolished by government decree.
June in Singapore is not winter so much as a breath between summers, and Bugis Street is now gone, but you will get to the right time and place by imagining the sweet smells of fruit and vegetable rinds, the inconsolable cadging of cafe owners and hawkers, and so much bright blue light from second storey windows that you could read a menu sitting at any table in the street at midnight.
3. A Good Pirate Crew Can Swarm Sitting Down.
You can do business of any sort at The Gangplank. The Gangplank is a bar in Taipei where it costs ten dollars, in premium grade currency, for a rum highball with a twist of scurvy.
4. Borneo Ferry.
A Muslim schoolboy rides home obeying the wish of Allah that he be present at his father's death.
This river is the Mahakam, a trade line inland from the Makassar Straits. The lower reach is a sea-mile wide, roadway for colliers, barges, log jams of softwoods, and ferries like ours, carrying miners, timber-cutters, shoppers from far villages, rattan baskets piled high on the roof.
5. Parties All Over Town.
The Handover of Hong Kong to China, commissioned by News Limited for the Handover Issue.
The handing back to China of Hong Kong was cause for celebration for most Chinese all over the world. In Hong Kong parties were everywhere, some by Chinese who had been waiting on this for decades, some by westerners who had made much money under colonial rule and whose partying was nostalgic, as those for the Merchant Bankers and in the British and the American Clubs. The stories of those parties reflect the ways continuing expatriates hope their fortunes should carry into their future.

Description:

In 1936, the celebrated American author Zane Grey arrived in the sleepy New South Wales town of Bermagui, with the express reason of angling for the world's largest fish - Marlin, sharks and Swordfish. Here is his little classic of the chase.
Four miles out I sighted a long sickle fin cutting through a swell. Did I yell, "Marlin!"? I certainly did. An instant later Peter sighted another farther out, and this tail fin belonged to a large fish. I could not tell whether or not it indicated a black marlin. It stood up three feet or more, and that much would make a tail spread of over six feet. These marlin were riding the swells and they were moving fast. The tails would come up out of the top of a swell and cut the water at more than a ten-knot speed. Then they would vanish. It is always necessary to run the boat in the right direction to head the fish off. The Avalon is fast - she can do eighteen knots when opened up - but we could not catch up with the big fellow.
