Amongst our new titles:

  Squatting: Romance & Reality
Told largely in the words of those involved, this is the story of squatting in the new colony. Squatters' rugged individualism did much to form the Australian character, and theirs is a story of courage and determination, but also of tragedy as economic progress led to the degradation of the land and destruction of the Aboriginal way of life.

Keating and his Party Room
The first comprehensive account of a full term of the proceedings of the Labor Party Room, where the Party's actions and performance in the Parliament are closely scrutinised and debated.

Turtle nest
Aruni returns to the island of her birth, Sri Lanka, aching to discover the truth about her mother, the wild and sensual beach girl, Mala. Happy for the first time in her life, Aruni believes she has found the place to which she belongs. But as the tragic story of Mala’s life unfolds, Aruni finds that belonging makes its own relentless claims …
Agents of Empire: How E.L. Mitchell's photographs shaped Australia
For nearly 100 years, E.L. Mitchell's emblematic photographs have shaped ideas about Australia. But who was Mitchell and why did he succeed above his competitors?
Persistent Young Offenders
A revolutionary way of thinking about the diagnosis and treatment of offenders. Rather than categorising offenders according to their offenses, the primary focus needs to be shifted to identifying the underlying psychological processes out of which the offending behaviour flows.
Escape from the Sun: Surviving the tyrannies of Lenin, Hitler & Stalin
When a son begins to question his parents’ judgement and decisions after WWII, he is overwhelmed by what he finds. To survive dictators you need to keep secrets even if this means deliberately disinforming your family. But should secrets be kept for ever?
