              In his second novel, satirist David Reiter does for the Australian education system what the BBC series Teachers did for the British system. Like every primary teacher, Cherry Kaufman had her ideals-once. You put in the hours, get the degree and hope your first job isn't a fiv...e hour drive west of Blackbutt. She knew it wouldn't all be long summer breaks and the adoration of grateful parents. But nothing prepared her for the "challenges" of teaching at Bayside State School, not to mention what her colleagues would get up to after school hours... A humourous expose of the education system, with a serious undercurrent.Birthdays, custard, book reports, gardens, families, friendship and fun all combine in this contemporary, witty and moving book. A fresh and uplifting novel based on a true story.

              Put the Billy On gives us insights into what it was like to grow up in Australia in the 1930s and 40s. The story is mixed with undertones of delightful humour and fading innocence. Historical events, such as the lead up to World War II, are artfully compared to the tensions in th...e speaker's own life. Ann Jones invites us to reflect on how far we've come, and the precious things that may have been lost on the way. Put the Billy On won the IP Picks 08 Best Creative Non-Fiction Award.

When Nadine Neumann decides that she wants to be an Olympic swimmer at age eight, she trades a normal life of school friends and partie...s for the rigours of elite sports training. With acute honesty, wisdom and humour, Nadine spins readers through the heartaches and loneliness of a different kind of adolescence. Enduring and overcoming Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, a life-threatening accident and imposed breaks from her passion, Nadine pursues her dream as only an Olympian can - with the rarest of intensity and focus. Sweeping from Perth to Germany, India to Sydney, Brisbane to Hong Kong, the reader is invited along this journey of a remarkable young woman who stops at nothing to achieve her goals.

              Poetry of the Earth: Mapuche Trilingual Anthology
                

              Poetry of the Earth: Mapuche Trilingual Anthology (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Edited by Villa, Jaime Luis Huenun; Brock, Steven; Reiter, David Philip; Translated by Garrido-Salgado, Juan; Holas, Sergio

              Mapuche poetry has flourished in recent decades and is now one of the most compelling neighbourhoods of contemporary Latin American literature. Incredibly, however, much of it remains untranslated into English. Not only does this anthology correct the situation, it goes far beyon...d the scale of anything published before. Some of the most important and exciting Mapuche poets are gathered here. Providing versions of each poem in Mapudungun, Spanish and English, Poetry of the Earth demonstrates how Mapuche poetry is so much more than just a collection of poems, or an act of writing. Rather, it is an expression of a long, rich and dynamic history, which at different times and places has made use of many kinds of musical, literary and linguistic forms. As the poems are often operatic in their scope and register, the anthology as a whole is also a sophisticated ensemble of languages, cultures, critics and poets. Translations by Mapuche and Settler Chileans meet the translations of Chileans and Australians on the other side of the Pacific Ocean. Then, Aboriginal, Mapuche and Settler scholars provide extremely useful introductory essays. Poetry of the Earth is a remarkable example of Australian-Chilean resonance, and of the shared history of European colonisation of indigenous peoples around the world. This is not just an anthology of poetry from a distant land and language; it's an illustration of a vital, trans-Pacific force. - Stuart Cooke, Griffith University

              Quakers have had a big influence on the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) from its beginning in 1975. This is consistent with their emphasis on seeking 'that of God in everyone' and their commitment to finding nonviolent ways to respond to conflict. In the 2015 Backhouse Lec...ture, drawing on long experience, Sally Herzfeld outlines the remarkable development of AVP within prisons, schools and social groups, and its spread to 60 countries. The philosophy and processes used in AVP workshops are explained in a way that makes it clear why this approach has changed many lives and helped build more peaceful communities.
