              Shanghai is a city defined by war. The city and its armed struggles were central to the relationship between China and Australia from the fall of the Manchus in 1912 to the Communist victory in 1949. Yet with the notable exception of George 'Chinese' Morrison, the Australian cont...ribution has been largely neglected and no single volume covers the experiences of the many remarkable Australians caught up in the drama. Set against a backdrop of imperial splendour and abject squalor, SHANGHAI FURY examines one of the seminal periods of the 20th Century in a compellingly readable narrative that mixes personal memoir with combat action to complete a powerful trilogy on Australians at war.

              The Big Fella: The Rise And Rise Of BHP Billiton (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Macklin, Robert; Thompson, Peter

              The never-before-told story of BHP Billiton's global conquests, told by the key players. BHP is part of Australia's DNA; but it remains an enigma. The Big Fella: The rise and rise of BHP Billiton is the compelling story of how BHP and its partner Billiton rose from the humblest b...eginnings in the Australian Outback and on the Indonesian island of Belitung to starry heights on the great bourses of the world. Based on more than 60 exclusive interviews, it rips away the superficial gloss to expose the political and industrial forces that really drive Big Business in the 21st century. In an investigative tour de force, authors Peter Thompson and Robert Macklin reveal the visions, the schemes, the scandals and the corporate life-and-death struggles that have characterised BHP's evolution from the first lucky strike by the mysterious Charles Rasp at Broken Hill in 1883 to its merger with Billiton in 2001 to its daring $150 billion bid for Rio Tinto six years later. The result is a gripping story of foresight and blunder, of nation-building and rampant ego, of greed and of grace, written by two master storytellers with, for the first time, access to the key players themselves. The Big Fella won the 2010 Blake Dawson Prize for Business Literature.
