            Clearing Boundaries is the first ever coffee-table style book dedicated to women's cricket, and the first literary update on the history of the women's game in Australia for nearly 30 years. The project traces the strong lineage of females in cricket from the 19th century to the ...watershed 2020 T20 World Cup, told largely through the lens of the Australian Women's Cricket Team. Celebrating generations of trailblazers across five distinguishable 'eras' - from foundation to professionalism - Clearing Boundaries curates a collection of short stories covering memorable tours, matches, innings, spells and moments. The highly pictorial book presents over 200 images; many were previously inaccessible to the public, but have been brought back to life by the Bradman Museum's Holman Collection in conjunction with other private collections donated to the Museum. It also features the statistical records of every woman to represent the nation on the cricket field, and a foreword written by arguably Australia's greatest female cricketer, Belinda Clark AO.

            The Nazis spared their lives because they were twins. In the summer of 1944, Eva Mozes Kor and her family arrived at Auschwitz. Within thirty minutes, they were separated. Her parents and two older sisters were taken to the gas chambers, while Eva and her twin, Miriam, were herde...d into the care of the man who became known as the Angel of Death: Dr. Josef Mengele. They were 10 years old. While twins at Auschwitz were granted the 'privileges' of keeping their own clothes and hair, they were also subjected to Mengele's sadistic medical experiments. They were forced to fight daily for their own survival and many died as a result of the experiments, or from the disease and hunger rife in the concentration camp. In a narrative told simply, with emotion and astonishing restraint, The Twins of Auschwitz shares the inspirational story of a child's endurance and survival in the face of truly extraordinary evil. Also included is an epilogue on Eva's incredible recovery and her remarkable decision to publicly forgive the Nazis. Through her museum and her lectures, she dedicated her life to giving testimony on the Holocaust, providing a message of hope for people who have suffered, and worked toward goals of forgiveness, peace, and the elimination of hatred and prejudice in the world.

            THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 'Everything you need to know about one of the deadliest outbreaks in human history' Bill Gates 'Easily our fullest, richest, most panoramic history of the subject' New York Times Book Review In 1918, the world faced the deadliest pandemic in human... history. What can the story of the so-called Spanish Flu teach us about the fight against present day crises, and how to prepare for future outbreaks? At the height of WWI, history's most lethal influenza virus erupted in an army camp in Kansas, moved east with American troops, then exploded, killing as many as 100 million people worldwide. It killed more people in twenty-four months than AIDS killed in twenty-four years, more in a year than the Black Death killed in a century. But this was not the Middle Ages, and 1918 marked the first collision of science and epidemic disease. Magisterial in its breadth of perspective and depth of research, The Great Influenza is ultimately a tale of triumph amid tragedy, which provides us with a precise and sobering model as we confront the aftermath of Covid-19 and future pandemics looming on the horizon.

            For thousands of years, the Maori tohunga, sages, passed closely guarded knowledge to new generations of sages, using only an orally coded system. Two hundred years ago, they started recording that knowledge into secret manuscripts. Why did they suddenly abandon their oral tra...ditions? Who were they writing for? Can this indigenous knowledge provide us with a beacon in our time?
