  1. The extraordinary story of Australian sappers on the frontlines of the war in Afghanistan. They were young, they were tough and they were everywhere. They were both the backyard builders and the frontline troops in Australia's war against the Taliban. This is the powerful story of the sappers, the Army engineers in Afghanistan whose raw courage and skills were inspired by the original Australian Tunnel Rats of the war in Vietnam. These Tunnel Rats of Afghanistan have rooted out the enemy from deep inside their caves and mountain hideouts, have defused thousands of improvised explosive devices (the booby traps and landmines of this most recent of wars), built bridges and schools to win a war of hearts and minds, and fought side by side with special forces commandos and SAS troops. They, too, lost a disproportionate number of their comrades and many returned home with the devastating baggage of war, post-traumatic stress disorder. Inspiring and action packed, this is the story of a special breed of soldier operating in a modern war against an enemy with medieval morals . . . and bombs triggered by mobile phones. It is a story that connects the unsung heroes of Vietnam with the modern heroes of Afghanistan.About the Author JIMMY THOMSON is a journalist, author and screenwriter. He is the author of Snitch, Watto and Wendell Sailor: Crossing the line, and co-wrote Tunnel Rats and A Sappers' War with Sandy MacGregor. As a young captain SANDY MACGREGOR, a graduate of the Royal Military College, Duntroon, commanded the original Tunnel Rats of 3 Field Troop in Vietnam and was awarded the Military Cross. He served in the Army for 30 years, finishing as a colonel in the Reserves.

  8. From the author of Guns, Germs and Steel, Jared Diamond’s Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Survive is a visionary study of the mysterious downfall of past civilizations. Now in a revised edition with a new afterword, Jared Diamond’s Collapse uncovers the secret behind why some societies flourish, while others founder – and what this means for our future. What happened to the people who made the forlorn long-abandoned statues of Easter Island?What happened to the architects of the crumbling Maya pyramids?Will we go the same way, our skyscrapers one day standing derelict and overgrown like the temples at Angkor Wat? Bringing together new evidence from a startling range of sources and piecing together the myriad influences, from climate to culture, that make societies self-destruct, Jared Diamond’s Collapse also shows how – unlike our ancestors – we can benefit from our knowledge of the past and learn to be survivors. ’A grand sweep from a master storyteller of the human race’ Daily Mail ’Riveting, superb, terrifying’ Observer ’Gripping … the book fulfils its huge ambition, and Diamond is the only man who could have written it’ Economist ’This book shines like all Diamond’s work’ Sunday Times Jared Diamond (b. 1937) is Professor of Geography at the University of California, Los Angeles. Until recently he was Professor of Physiology at the UCLA School of Medicine. He is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the widely acclaimed Guns, Germs, and Steel: the Fates of Human Societies, which also is the winner of Britain’s 1998 Rhone-Poulenc Science Book Prize.

  11. Now in its fourth edition, Education, Change and Society continues to help readers situate educational activity in its broad social and policy contexts. The study of education can do more than help us understand how individuals may learn and how teachers should teach. It helps us understand what is valued in that society, and how `winners and losers’ are created. We only have to look at the life outcomes of the results gained by young people at various points in their education to see that the way our society organises the education of young people has broad consequences at both a social and an individual level.This book encourages discussion and debate, and points to issues that are highly significant for an understanding of Australian education today. Questions raised in this book include:What impact has globalisation had on Australian schools?How do Aboriginal students experience Australian schools? Why are Australian schools funded in such peculiar ways?Why did state, private and corporate schools emerge as they did in Australia? How do social class and gender differences affect schooling and its outcomes?How do cultural differences affect the schooling of students and their communities?How does the world of education in cities differ from that in regional, rural and remote schools?How does what is taught in schools-the curriculum-relate to the preceding questions? What constitutes the work of teachers, and can teachers `make a difference’?It has never been more important for students of education to be able to understand the connections between the local and the global in explaining contemporary educational change. But it is not enough to understand the connection between local and international events: This book will help students appreciate how the Australian system has been shaped over time, and how this has influenced the current institutions and policies that comprise the state of education today.New to this EditionNew authors – Nicole Mockler, Susan Groundwater-Smith, Kellie Burns, Remy Low have joined the team and revised select chapters to ensure contemporary relevanceUpdated introductory vignettes open each chapter with a scenario that illustrates one or more of the key themes of the chapter – designed to demonstrate how the chapter contents might be relevant to situations teachers may faceIncreased attentionto the Australian Professional Standards for TeachersIncreased content on Assessment including critical responses to modes of assessmentMore content on Early Years and the educational contexts of young childrenIntroduction expanded to incorporate more on Ways of Seeing in sociological terms to help students learn how to think in sociological waysUpdated Further Reading and websites to help students explore the wealth of research.Completely revised chapter 14 exploring ways to conduct research, and the implications of adopting one research framework or another – an important tool for any contemporary teacher

  16. The award-winning, Booker and Goldsmiths Prize-shortlisted author Magnus Mills is back with his best novel yet, a hilarious and surreal exploration of power, fanaticism and really, really good records Within a few months we’d witnessed bickering, desertion, subterfuge and rivalry. I was rapidly coming to the conclusion that only a miracle could save us now. Two men with a passion for vinyl create a society for the appreciation of records. Their aim is simple: to elevate the art of listening by doing so in forensic detail. The society enjoys moderate success in the back room of their local pub, The Half Moon, with other enthusiasts drawn to the initial promise of the weekly gathering. However, as the club gains popularity, its founder’s uncompromising dogma results in a schism within the movement and soon a counter group forms. Then the arrival of a young woman called Alice further fractures the unity of the vulnerable society. As rifts are forged and gulfs widen, Magnus Mills examines the surreal nature of ordinary lives. The master of the comic deadpan returns for his ninth novel, a spectacularly disingenuous exploration of power, fanaticism and really, really good records.

This is the original translation by Fredy Perlman, kept in print continuously for the last 30 years, keeping the flame alive when no-one else cared.
