  1. The gripping account of how Australia’s greatest warship was lost and found. ‘We just found Sydney. We’ve got it. It’s absolutely crystalclear. She’s sitting upright in a small debris field. There’s no doubt aboutit.’ For sixty-six years it was Australia’s greatest maritimemystery: what happened to the ‘pride of the fleet’ HMAS Sydney – was she beatenin a fair fight with the German cruiser Kormoran, or was there treacheryinvolved? Could the Kormoran survivors’ account of the battle and itsaftermath be believed? Why were there no survivors from Sydney? And where wasthe wreck? One of the world’s foremost shipwreck hunters, David L. Mearns firstheard the story of the Sydney in 1996. It left an indelible impression on him. Hunting the Sydney ten years later tested all his skills as a detective, engineer,marine scientist and navigator. But find it he did, and with that momentous discovery came answers to the mystery; closure to relatives still grieving the 645 men dead; accountability to the RAN, which had all but given up hopeof ever finding its most iconic ship; and a sad but gripping explanation of the staggering naval disaster, allowing Australians to finallymake sense of the conflicting, conspiratorial and painful event.

  2. The early years of Sydney were witnessed by seven expeditions of French exploration between 1788 and 1831. These seven expeditions, with their total of ten ships, spent well over a year in the new town of Sydney meeting most of its leading citizens and visiting its expanding environs. The French explorers, including Freycinet, Laperouse and Bougainville, were received and entertained by Sydney’s dignitaries, including Governors King, Macquarie, Brisbane and Darling and the high-profile Macarthur family. Their revealing accounts presenting intimate details of the everyday lives at all levels of society, from the Governors’ parties to ‘the sickening spectacle’ (as de Bougainville saw it) of convicts on the treadmills in Sydney’s penitentiary. The French Explorers and Sydney contains previously unpublished translations of European experiences in the early colonial period. The journals and records of these French explorers and scientists offer surprising cultural insights and an engaging outsiders’ perspective on the new colony and its residents.

  6. For over thirty years the Terminus Hotel had stood dilapidated and abandoned on the corner of Harris and John Streets in Pyrmont – shrouded in mystery and a heavy coat of ivy, and the memories of its publicans and customers long faded.Told with fascinating insight and rich detail, historian and author Shirley Fitzgerald uncovers for the first time the stories, secrets and long-forgotten characters from what was once regarded as the toughest pub in Sydney – and today has been brought back to life and reopened as a heritage gastropub for locals and visitors alike.First built in 1863, the Terminus evolved from local meeting place to workers pub, through very different liquor laws that allowed children to be served, and finally to its last trading years in the 1970s and 80s, where the clientele comprised of hardened merchant seamen and wharfies, biker gangs and curious punters who were served by topless, tattooed barmaids and entertained by rock bands. Revealing its changing personality through photographs and interviews, Terminus: The Pub that Sydney Forgot offers a beautiful and captivating social history of Pyrmont through the lens of one pub, now open for the enjoyment of a new generation of patrons to make their own history.

  8. ‘Peter Grose has a natural ability to tell a good yarn and the story of the Japanese subs that slid into Sydney Harbour in 1942 is about as good as any Aussie yarn can get . . . a great retelling of a great story.‘The Sydney Morning Herald On the night of 31 May 1942, Sydney was doing what it does best: partying. The theatres, restaurants, dance halls, illegal gambling dens, clubs and brothels offered plenty of choice to roistering sailors, soldiers and airmen on leave in Australia’s most glamorous city. The war seemed far away. Newspapers devoted more pages to horse racing than to Hitler. That Sunday night the party came to a shattering halt when three Japanese midget submarines crept into the harbour, past eight electronic indicator loops, past six patrolling Royal Australian Navy ships, and past an anti-submarine net stretched across the inner harbour entrance. Their arrival triggered a night of mayhem, courage, chaos and high farce which left 27 sailors dead and a city bewildered. The war, it seemed, was no longer confined to distant desert and jungle. It was right here at Australia’s front door. Written at the pace of a thriller and based on new first person accounts and previously unpublished official documents, A Very Rude Awakening is a ground-breaking and myth-busting look at one of the most extraordinary stories ever told of Australia at war.
