Packed with more than 80 inspiring quotations, and bold, intriguing illustrations, The Islam Book is an invaluable source of information both for members of one of the world's major religions and any interested reader who wants a clear unbiased guide to the meaning of this faith.

            In the tradition of THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ, a heartbreaking true story of love, loss and survival against all odds during the Second World war. Conscripted into the Polish army as Hitler's ground and air forces are bearing down on his country, Jew Tolek Klings vows to return ...to his wife, Klara, and son, Juliusz. However, when the Luftwaffe's bombs start falling and the Polish cause looks hopelessly lost, Tolek finds himself under fire from his supposed brothers in arms. The Polish army is rife with anti-Semitism and he is relentlessly tormented. As the Germans cross the border, he is faced with a terrible dilemma: flee to protect his family - and risk being shot as a deserter - or ride out the war, hoping rumours of women and children being spared in the concentration camps are true. What follows is an odyssey that will take Tolek from a Hungarian internment camp, where his ability to type spares him from the frontline, on to Palestine, Beirut, Egypt, Tobruk and Italy. A broken telegram from Klara, ending with the haunting words, 'We trouble', pushes him to the brink.

            Women and Leadership: Real Lives, Real Lessons

            Women and Leadership presents a lively and readable analysis of how gender impacts the access of women to positions of political leadership, the perceptions of them as leaders, the trajectory of their leadership and the circumstances in which it comes to an end. Analysing the les...sons learned from these women, Julia Gillard and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala provide a road map of essential knowledge to inspire all of us. Women leaders often have biographies published but the approach taken to analysing gender is not consistent. Authors may shy away from dealing deeply with gender questions fearing a backlash if a book is seen to be whinging in tone. Women and Leadership fills that void and takes a consistent and comprehensive approach to teasing out what is different for women leaders. The same interview questions were used to examine each woman's journey in leadership and their real world experiences were tested against the authors' hypothesis of how gender impacts leadership. Resulting in an action agenda for change that will make it more likely women leaders are treated fairly and with no gender bias. Featuring- Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Clinton, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Theresa May, Michelle Bachelet, Joyce Banda, Erna Solberg, Christine Lagarde and more.

            `Dark Emu injects a profound authenticity into the conversation about how we Australians understand our continent ... [It is] essential reading for anyone who wants to understand what Australia once was, or what it might yet be if we heed the lessons of long and sophisticated hum...an occupation.' Judges for 2016 NSW Premier's Literary AwardsDark Emu puts forward an argument for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer tag for pre-colonial Aboriginal Australians. The evidence insists that Aboriginal people right across the continent were using domesticated plants, sowing, harvesting, irrigating and storing - behaviours inconsistent with the hunter-gatherer tag. Gerritsen and Gammage in their latest books support this premise but Pascoe takes this further and challenges the hunter-gatherer tag as a convenient lie. Almost all the evidence is Dark Emu comes from the records and diaries of the Australian explorers, impeccable sources. Bruce's comments on his book compared to Gammage's: My book is about food production, housing construction and clothing whereas Gammage was interested in the appearance of the country at contact. [Gammage] doesn't contest hunter gatherer labels either, whereas that is at the centre of my argument.
