|Trust & Betrayal: Morality and the Emotions in Surgery
David Macintosh is a former surgeon and an ethicist who writes with candour, insight and eloquence about empathy, practical wisdom, rationality and human frailty, factors that bear profoundly upon our understanding of trust. He sees trust as a burden a doctor must accept for all patients. It imposes an obligation that goes to the core of a doctor’s character.
All the Beginnings: A Queer Autobiography of the Body
|Leading Social Work
In this history of social work education at the University of Melbourne, Jane Miller draws upon her PhD research to trace the influences that would ultimately shape social work as a new profession in Australia. In a thoughtful exploration of 75 years of teaching social work practice and research, Miller tells an important story of social work and pays tribute to the people who have had a critical impact on the profession.
|Alias Blind Larry: The Mostly True Memoir of James Laurence, the Singing Convict
A convict story, an adventure story, a colonial story, a Jewish story, a theatrical story. A fascinating piece of history, untold until now. Through the narrative of Laurence’s life, it re-creates a whole period of history
|The Killing at Risdon Cove
As one of the foundation events in Tasmanian history, what happened at Risdon Cove on 3 May 1804 has always had a place in narrative histories. A large party of Aborigines were fired upon by English colonists, the number killed estimated variously from three to fifty.
|Goldfields and the Gothic
Generations of Australians have grown up with the legend of Eureka and the familiar images of the gold rush in central Victoria. However, underneath these commonly known stories lies a stranger and darker past. As well as colonists, pioneers, soldiers and rebel miners, the colonial goldfields were home to spiritualists, secret societies, ghost-hoaxers, bunyip legends and murderers.
