Amongst our new titles:
|Fighting Monsters: An Intimate History of the Sandakan Tragedy
Only 6 escapees survived the Sandakan death marches of 1945 in North Borneo, the worst atrocity ever inflicted on Australian soldiers. One survivor, Richard Braithwaite’s father, died in 1986, still wanting the story to be properly told.
|The Beerburrum Experiment: A History of Australia's First World War One Soldier Settlement
When Queensland opened up a large area of land at Beerburrum, just north of Brisbane, to settle military veterans in July 1916, it was an experiment in rural development to have unfortunate results.
|So You Can See In The Dark: and other Indian essays
Claudia Hyles has had a lifetime of journeys to the sub-continent, and here she paints India's colour, complexity and vitality vividly.
|Famous People Who Have Met Me and Other Stories: The Photography of Greg Noakes
The best photographs from award-winning Australian photographer Greg Noakes's archives, from the hedonistic highs of a rampant Cold Chisel to the devastation of Victoria's Black Saturday bushfires.
|The Chalkies: Educating an Army for Independence
Between 1966 and 1973, while Australian troops were fighting in Vietnam, some 300 conscripted teachers were quietly posted to Papua New Guinea. Colloquially known as ‘Chalkies’, their task was to raise the educational level of troops.
