  2. East Indies follows the trade winds, the trade routes, and the port cities across the East Indies and the Orient. High finance, piracy, greed, ambition, double dealing, exploitation all is here.

Thestory is told by the history of these port cities, beginning with Malacca -one of the world’slargest trading ports in the 16th Century – and ending with thefounding of Singapore and Hong Kong.

  1. In Australia’s rush to commemorate allthings Anzac, have we lost our ability to look beyond war as the central pillarof Australia’s history and identity? Thepassionate historians of the Honest History group argue that while war has beenimportant to Australia – mostly for its impact on our citizens and our ideas ofnationhood – we must question the stories we tell ourselves about our history.We must separate myth from reality – and to do that we need to reassess thehistorical evidence surrounding military myths.Inthis lively collection, renowned writers including Paul Daley, Mark McKenna,Peter Stanley, Carolyn Holbrook, Mark Dapin, Carmen Lawrence, Stuart Macintyre, Frank Bongiornoand Larissa Behrendt explore not only the militarisation of our history but thealternative narratives swamped under the khaki-wash – Indigenous history,frontier conflict, multiculturalism, the myth of egalitarianism, economics andthe environment. `The Honest History group announced its arrival in 2013 with a clear, urgent purpose: to challenge the dominance of the Anzac legend in Australian popular memory. The group also took as its mission to remind Australians of the diversity of our history. The Honest History Book distils this approach in a series of compelling, highly readable essays by some of Australia’s most distinguished historians.’ – Michelle Arrow `An important book, both timely and compelling: timely because it provides a powerful and much-needed riposte to the current practice of elevating military history above all other aspects of the nation’s past.’ – Henry Reynolds `This book not only offers a vital corrective to the flimflams and taradiddles of Anzackery, but also gives us a new collection of fascinating essays on Australian history. Complex, inclusive, balanced, disruptive and – crucially – evidence-based, The Honest History Book is destined to provide a much-needed talking point for teachers, journalists, general readers and, with any luck, politicians and policy makers.’ – Clare Wright

  6. The History of Australia in 100 Objects is a fresh, accessible take on Australian history. It explores both well- and little-known stories through the objects of the time and the people who made and owned them. Some stories are of pivotal moments in Australia’s past, including the Rum Rebellion, World War I, Federation and the birth of the Native Title Act. And yet sometimes these big events are most powerfully told through a small object belonging to someone long forgotten- a gold locket, a boomerang, a cup and saucer from the Country Women’s Association. Former Rolling Stone editor Toby Creswell takes each object as a starting point to tell the stories that make up our national history, exploring and celebrating key technological, social, political, artistic and sporting moments. From Ned Kelly’s armour to Henry Lawson’s pen and Julia Gillard’s glasses, Creswell’s objects are sometimes iconic, sometimes unexpected and quirky; but the mix creates a compelling, multi-layered story. ‘Through these often simple yet emotionally charged items, Toby Creswell makes history thrillingly immediate.’ The Sydney Morning Herald
