MONASH UNIVERSITY PUBLISHING


JA NUARYJUNE 2016

WITH A GROWING list we are moving to six-monthly catalogues. In the first half of
2016 we will, I hope, strengthen our reputation with original and socially important
works that in a number of cases can be expected to stand as the key reference in their
intellectual area for years to come.
There is the autobiography of Frank Vajda, who survived the holocaust in Hungary
and went on to devote his life in Australia, in part, to revering the memory of Raoul
Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat credited with working heroically to save Jews at that
moment. Vajdas account is especially pertinent now, as the official memory of the Nazi
invasion, within Hungary, becomes increasingly contested.
No less relevant, at a time of mass population pressure and continuing state violence,
is Whos Afraid of International Law, edited by Rai Gaita and Gerry Simpson. And Farid
Bezhan may rightly claim to have produced the first study of the nature of life for women
in contemporary Afghanistan that is grounded in solid scholarly research.
I am hopeful Small Screens: Essays on Contemporary Australian Television will be a
new kind of cultural study, drawing on scholarly expertise and a critical eye to engage
productively with a form of truly popular culture so often shunned by Cultural Studies
intellectuals.
And Im excited by the innovative, content-enriched Manga Vision: Cultural and
Communicative Perspectives.
Our press continues to increase its impact, with sales and revenue growing every
year since our launch in 2010. This growth was particularly marked in 2015 and we
continue to hope that our focus on socially relevant scholarly publishing will continue
to please readers.

Sally Dammery practised clinical midwifery for many years, developing a deep interest
in the diversity of cultural beliefs and traditions among the women she attended. Travelling
widely increased this interest and led to formal study of anthropology and history. Her
previous publications include the ethnography Walter George Arthur: a Free Tasmanian?
which shared the Ian Turner History Prize in 2001, and the biography of her enigmatic
grandmother, She Lived in Launceston: Isobel Horner of Waratah House, winner of the Lilian

Saved to Remember
Raoul Wallenberg, Budapest 1944
and After
By Frank Vajda
Frank Vajda, a major figure in Australian
neurology, was a boy in Budapest, Hungary, during
the Second World War. He witnessed the attempt
by Hitlers Nazis and a fascist Hungarian militia
to murder him, his family, and the rest of the Jews
RAOUL WALLENBERG, BUDAPEST

of this nation. Frank survived in the care of his
FRANK VAJDA
courageous and ever-resourceful mother.
In Saved to Remember Vajda vividly and matterof-factly conveys what life was like for Jews trying
to stay alive in a world where the law of the land,
backed up by brute soldierly force, suddenly
determined that they were to be killed, and how
they hid, bluffed, and fought to avoid that fate.
Vajda pays tribute to those who did not survive,
including his father, and to those who did their
best to save them, amongst whom the name of Raoul Wallenberg, Swedish diplomat, shines
most brightly. Saved to Remember is also an account of Vajdas ongoing campaign, within
the journey of his life, to publicly recognise and honour those, particularly Wallenberg, who
risked their own lives in the attempt to save Jewish life.
At a time when the memory of this period of Hungarian history is increasingly contested,
Vajdas memoir is important both for what it reveals of what happened and for what it says of
how these happenings should be remembered.

Whos Afraid of International Law?


Edited by Raimond Gaita and Gerry Simpson
Is there such a thing as an international law of
which to be afraid? Can international law be
seen as a coherent set of norms? Or is it, rather,
something experienced radically differently by
different individuals and groups in different parts
of the world? And what do the different sets of
international law seek to change or justify today?

Monash Steps / Stawell Steps

This book presents documentation, reflection and


critical analysis of two award-winning projects,
Monash Steps and Stawell Steps. These linked
projects were designed and built by Monash
Architecture students under the leadership of
Hiroshi Nakao and Nigel Bertram. The works were
developed in close collaboration with the town of
Stawell, through partnership with local brick maker
Krause bricks and civil engineers at the Northern
Grampians Shire Council.
Monash Steps and the associated exhibition
were installed at the Monash University Museum
of Art in 2012, making a temporary occupiable
space using dry-stacked bricks. Stawell Steps is a

Activism and Aid


Young Citizens Experiences of Development and Democracy in
East Timor
By Ann Wigglesworth

An immensely readable and insightful glimpse into the experiences, concerns and

aspirations of Timor-Lestes youth, charting their course from student activists to nation
builders, from the fight for national liberation to the battle for participation in governance

structures and aid and development programs. I strongly recommend this book to anyone
wanting a snapshot of the principal challenges facing Timor-Leste today in its quest to
build a strong, stable and equitable nation for all citizens, young and old.

Timor-Lestes independence was forged at a time when international developmental theory


had rejected top down approaches and recognised the importance of participation informing
developmental strategies. When the arrival of the United Nations and a multitude of bilateral and
multilateral and non-government organisations arrived in Timor-Leste in 1999 it was hoped that
the international intervention would at last produce a development success story.
Independence also brought the realisation that dreams for an independent Timor-Leste varied,
often according to generation. Three generations the political elite, a younger generation of
independence activists (gerasaun foun) and todays youth of independent Timor-Leste each
bring their own experiences and face different challenges in Timor-Leste. Today, stark contrasts
between the values of customary life and those of the modernising world place both community
leaders and young Timorese at a crossroads. The experiences of the Timorese are unique, but
this book reflects a broader analysis of how aid-influenced processes of development can work
in greater harmony with the people to realise their own visions of the future of their nation.

fields, were held in a crowded refugee camp at the
border of their country, and then sent back to a
nation still at war. The past is not spoken about
but the struggles are not over and the sons and
daughters of those who once were refugees sense
mystery in their legacy and know it is important to
them.
Joan Healy lived and worked with these refugees
for many years. In response to a young man who
said he needed to know everything, she has told
a story of his troubled homeland, retrieved from
the fading pages of her journals and letters. The
saga of this quarter century is witness to both a
determination to survive and human goodness that was never quenched.
Joan Healys personal, learned, eye-witness account is essential reading for anyone seeking
to understand Cambodia.
Joan Healy is an Australian who has lived among Cambodians since she began working
in a refugee camp on Cambodias border in 1989. When the population of the camp was
relocated back to Cambodia she was invited to mentor efforts to rebuild community in
villages divided by civil war. Until 1997 her home was in a village at the edge of Battambang
in the war-torn north of the country. She continues to be invited back to Cambodia to
facilitate, review NGOs and share her experience of education and human development. Joan
is a member of the Sisters of St Joseph.

How to Vote Progressive in Australia


Labor or Green?
Edited by Dennis Altman and Sean Scalmer
Red or Green? Traditionally, Australian
progressives have supported the Australian Labor
Party; increasingly, the Greens appeal. What are
the key differences between the parties? Is greater
collaboration desirable? Is it likely?
Some progressives remain strongly committed to
Labor or the Greens. Others have abandoned one or
other of the parties from bitter experience. Others
still are genuinely undecided, or seek to promote
greater understanding and cooperation. What is
the best way forward?
EDITED BY DENNIS ALTMAN AND SEAN SCALMER
This volume brings together a range of party
leaders, veterans, and academic experts to tackle
these important questions. Deliberately pluralistic,
it encompasses strongly divergent views. Dedicated
to progressive change, it aims both to capture and
to advance a vital public debate.
Dennis Altman, a Professorial Fellow in Human
Security at La Trobe University, has published
thirteen books, most recently The End of the
Homosexual? and (with Jon Symons) Queer Wars.
In 2006, The Bulletin listed Dennis Altman as one
of the 100 most influential Australians ever, and he was appointed a Member of the Order of
Australia in 2008.
Sean Scalmer teaches History at the University of Melbourne. His books include Dissent
Events, The Little History of Australian Unionism and Gandhi in the West. He is a co-editor of
the journal Moving the Social.

which attempted to explain the mysteries of his
origins and adventures, and the reasons he always
used pseudonyms after fleeing from the USA to
Australia.
Additional material in this edition reveals for the first time the details of the Vagabonds
earlier life in Virginia, USA. Here he married the widow of a rich planter, used her money to
build a delightful Southern mansion, became a leading light in society, took control of the
local bank, and absconded when things went wrong.
The rascal managed to redeem himself with his unique work for Australian newspapers,
where no-one realised his true identity. A further addition to this volume is a scholarly
examination of the Vagabonds pioneering technique of immersion journalism, where the
reporter becomes part of the story and gives his own observations and opinions.

By Brian McFarlane

DouBle-act

Double-Act

not Many can boast of careers that lasted successfully for nearly seventy years, but that
is what both Googie Withers and John Mccallum achieved. Googie portrayed everything
from brazen murderesses to lady Bracknell, taking in blonde nitwits, wartime resistance
workers, lady farmers and Shakespeare along the way. John not only performed memorably
in all the acting media but also was a pioneer producer in australian television sending
Skippy into the far corners of the earth the managing director of a huge theatrical firm,
and a film director, playwright and author.
Just as remarkable was their 62-year marriage, not all that common in the entertainment
world, and the way this worked is as fascinating as their varied and prolific careers. There
were plenty of disagreements along the way but underlying all was their profound respect
for each others work and a kind of love that was essentially complementary. together, in
professional and personal matters alike, an unbeatable combination. Brian McFarlanes
biography justice to this remarkable pair and reads as an absorbing story.

this is the story of Celia Rosser, internationally acclaimed botanical illustrator,


who dedicated her life to painting the entire genus of Banksia, the only artist
to have done so. Her dedication to the task put her at the centre of the Monash
Banksia Project for twenty-five years, and culminated in the production of an
extraordinary three-volume florilegium that became one of the great books
published in the twentieth century.
Banksia Lady reveals the emergence of an artist who grew up in difficult
circumstances during the Great Depression and who pursued her art as a way of
protecting herself from the harsher side of life. the story follows Celias struggle
to pursue her artistic passion while fulfilling the expectations that women of
the 1950s would subordinate themselves as wives and mothers. as her children
became more independent, she recognised opportunities and, eventually, found
a place at Monash University to fully express herself through her art.
in telling this story of Celia Rossers unparalleled talent and extraordinary
achievement, this book explores the history of botanical illustration, botany,
academia, gardens and their herbarium, and australias place in changing the

The Hanged Man and the Body Thief


Finding Lives in a Museum Mystery
By Alexandra Roginski
1860. An Aboriginal labourer named Jim Crow is led to the scaffold of the
Maitland Gaol in colonial New South Wales. Among the onlookers is the
Scotsman AS Hamilton, who will take bizarre steps in the aftermath of the
execution to exhume this young mans skull. Hamilton is a lecturer who
travels the Australian colonies teaching phrenology, a popular science
that claims character and intellect can be judged from a persons head. For
Hamilton, Jim Crow is an important prize.
In a compelling and original work of history, Alexandra Roginski leads
the reader through her extensive research aimed at finding the person
within the museum piece. Reconstructing the narrative of a life and a
theft, she crafts a case study that elegantly navigates between legal and Aboriginal history, heritage
studies, and biography.
The Hanged Man and the Body Thief is a nuanced story about phrenology, a biased legal system,
the aspirations of a new museum, and the dilemmas of a theatrical third wife. It is most importantly
a tale of two very different men, collector and collected, one of whom can now return home.

Dancing in My Dreams
By Kerry Highley

CONFRONTING THE SPECTRE OF POLIO


KERRY HIGHLEY
Across most of the world, an entire generation has lived free from the spectre of polio,
but for fifty years during the twentieth century that fear was overwhelming. Polio became
every parents worst nightmare, and panic drove people to do bizarre things to protect
their children. Survivors of the disease and treatment often found that they faced a world
unfriendly to their disability.
In pre-Second World War Australia, how best to treat polio survivors was fiercely debated
and generated a rift between the medical community and those advocating alternative
therapies. Two women symbolised this rift. In Victoria, Dr Jean Macnamara used splints,
plaster casts and braces to immobilise patients, an approach that, by the 1950s, most Western
countries had abandoned. In her clinics in Australia, and later in the United States, Sister
Elizabeth Kenny championed and practised a different approach involving little or no
constraint on the paralysed body, the application of gentle exercise of the muscles in the
early, acute stage of the disease, and the use of hot packs to relieve pain and muscle spasm
and tightness.
Dancing in My Dreams describes the disease of polio and its treatment, the scientific
endeavour that led to the discovery of the poliovirus, and the studies in virology and
immunology that culminated in the production of a polio vaccine. It highlights the
experiences of patients and the voices of survivors, revealing how ethnicity, class, age and
gender all mediated individuals reactions to the disease, which included fear, rejection,
denial and anger.
Despite the vaccination programs initiated by the World Health Organization, the poliovirus has not been eliminated globally. In three countries, Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan,
the wild poliovirus remains endemic. The striking 50-year decline in the incidence of polio
has stalled, leading to falling levels of immunity in populations. As the frequency of polio
epidemics has declined, so too has the collective memory of the experience of the disease,
with the growth of anti-vaccine sentiment in many societies a complicating issue.
There is no cure for polio. The treatment for polio today remains the same as it was forty
years ago. The only way to prevent future epidemics of polio is by vaccinating the population.
If the poliovirus cannot find an unvaccinated individual to infect, it will die out. But the
success of a vaccination program depends on the cooperation of all individuals to ensure
the common good. As long as a single person remains infected with polio, all unvaccinated
children throughout the world are at risk.

CONFRONTING THE SPECTRE OF POLIO

KERRY HIGHLEY
Across most of the world, an entire generation has lived free from the
spectre of polio, but for fifty years during the twentieth century that
fear was overwhelming. Polio rapidly became every parents worst
nightmare. Epidemics arrived silently, often with symptoms that could
easily be mistaken for a common cold, and with dreadful suddenness.
Those fortunate enough to survive infection often faced an unfriendly
and unhelpful world.
Dancing in My Dreams investigates the disease of polio and its treatment over a long period,
the scientific endeavour that led to the discovery of the poliovirus, and the early studies in
virology and immunology that culminated in the production of a polio vaccine. For the first
time, in a history of this disease, the voice of the polio survivor can also be clearly heard.

Born and educated in South Africa, Tatz worked to expose and oppose that
nations centuries-old apartheid regimes before leaving for what he thought would
be a more enlightened nation, only to find in Australia striking parallels of that
other dismal universe.
As a researcher, writer and activist he has dedicated his life to confronting what

how alienation, his Jewishness and an intriguing problem with food have been, for
him, propelling forces.

MARIAN QUARTLY AND JUDITH SMART
For much of the twentieth century, the National Council of Women of Australia
was the peak body representing women to government in Australia and, through
the International Council of Women, to the world. This history of the NCWA
tells the story of mainstream feminism in Australia, of the long struggle for
equality at home and at work, which is still far from achieved. These days, when
women can no longer be imagined as speaking with one voice and women as a
group have no ready access to government, something of the optimistic vision
of the leaders of the NCWA is still needed. Respectable in hat and gloves to the
1970s and beyond, the women of the NCWA politely persisted with the truly
radical idea that women around the world should be equal with men.

AUSTRALIAN ARCHAEOLOGY has been involved in a great enterprise over the last sixty
years, uncovering the deep past of a desert continent and the history of its first people. This
book is a guide to the catchphrases of the discipline. It is a meditation on science and place,
culture and politics, deep time and the Dreaming and it is steeped in an appreciation of
good writing and a well-turned phrase. Woven in amongst these quotations is the story of
how, as a nation, we are coming to terms with ancient Australia.
The entries are drawn from letters and journals, histories and poems, newspapers and
novels. Each has been chosen because it is a pithy summation of an issue. Combined,
they map the development of the field and encourage a dialogue between science and the
humanities.

A Vigilant Life
With a foreword by Michael Kirby

A Vigilant Life
John Emerson

A Vigilant Life

In MArCH 1967 South Australian Attorney-General Don Dunstan appointed


his states most outstanding barrister as Chief Justice. In public, Brays appointment
brought barely a ripple, but in the murky waters of Adelaides corridors of power
this decision unleashed waves of outrage and bitter revenge seeking, which would
eventually lead to the sacking of a police commissioner, the resignation of Dunstan
as South Australian Premier and the early retirement of Bray.
After his successful defence of rupert Murdochs News in 1960 in a seditious
libel case, Bray made a powerful enemy who coveted the position of Chief Justice
that Bray would come to hold an enemy who would then ruthlessly target Brays
unconventional private life.
This is the story of an extraordinarily gifted man whose judicial writings continue
to be cited across the Commonwealth and who determined to defend not only his
own natural right to a private life but also that of all citizens.
As Michael Kirby relates in his Foreword, the abuse of power, recorded in those
pages, stands as a warning to us.

WINNER of the National Biography Award 2013

They shared a name, of course, and their physical resemblance was startling.
And both Frank Thrings were huge figures in the landscape of twentieth-century
Australian theatre and film.
But in many ways they could hardly have been more different. Frank Thring
the father (18821936) began his career as a sideshow conjuror, and he wheeled,
dealed and occasionally married his way into becoming the legendary F.T.
impresario, speculator and owner of Efftee Films, Australias first talkies studio.
He built for himself an image of grand patriarchal respectability, a sizeable
fortune, and all the makings of a dynasty.
Frank Thring the son (19261994) squandered the fortune and derailed the
dynasty in the course of creating his own persona a unique presence that
could make most stages and foyers seem small. He won fame playing tyrants
in togas in Hollywood blockbusters, then, suddenly, came home to Melbourne
to play perhaps his finest role that of Frank Thring, actor and personality
extraordinaire. Central to this role was that Frank the son was unapologetically
and outrageously gay.
Peter Fitzpatricks compelling dual biography tells the story of two remarkable
characters. Its a kind of detective story, following the tracks of two men who
did all they could to cover their tracks, and to conceal the self : Frank the father
used secrecy and sleight-of-hand as strategies for self-protection; Frank the son
masked a thoroughly reclusive personality with flamboyant self-parody. Its also
the tale of a lost relationship and of the power a father may have had, even
over a son who hardly knew him.

Witch-Hunt and Conspiracy


The Ninja Case in East Java
By Nicholas Herriman
This book brings unique insight and prize-winning analysis to an
extraordinary story that of a witch-hunt and ninja craze that
swept a region of Java, Indonesia, in 1998. When neighbours, family
members and friends believed that one among them was a sorcerer,
this suspicion would sometimes culminate in the death of the suspect.
In 1998, these sporadic killings turned into an outbreak of violence.
Muslim organisations attributed the escalation of these killings to
political conspirators, alleging that squads of ninjas were responsible. A paramilitary group
(Banser NU) began preparing and training for an onslaught of further violence, while anxious
residents throughout East Java established road-side guards. Dozens of suspected ninjas were
caught and some were tortured and killed.
Using first-hand accounts, Herriman provides these events with a detailed context and
history and analyses their development in terms of the interplay of national institutions and
local culture and dynamics.

Genocide, memory And history

Aftermath: Genocide, Memory and History examines how genocide is


remembered and represented in both popular and scholarly memory,
integrating scholarship on the Holocaust with the study of other genocides
through a comparative framework. Scholars from a range of disciplines
re-evaluate narratives of past conflict to explore how memory of genocide
is mobilised in the aftermath, tracing the development and evolution
of memory through the lenses of national identities, colonialism, legal
history, film studies, gender, the press, and literary studies.

Diversity, Challenges and Changes


Edited by Philip Chan

Education in Asia Pacific countries is being transformed by globalisation and


the market economy. Most economies within the region have flourished due to
increased regional capital flow, trade and other forms of economic and political
interaction. The Asia Pacific also has rich and unique traditions, which create
cultural diversity as well as common challenges, including obstacles of language
and geographical separation. While these countries are well documented in
Western scholarship, there is a growing reaction to the predominance of Western
social theories. This response is fuelling recognition of and movement towards
theories that reference the wide range of contextual and cultural perspectives
available in the East.
The contributors to this volume are currently researching contemporary
education in Asia Pacific countries. They offer Eastern-oriented perspectives
on teacher education, parent participation, government withdrawal, textbook
content, uses of modern technology, the challenges of the migrating families
and tertiary students who travel from overseas for study. These commentaries
highlight the issues of equity, identity and social justice and also open up
dialogue between social theories that reference East as well as West.

Asian Horizons

...a masterly study of how Australians remember, forget, invent


and imagine their experiences of war. Ken Inglis

ALISTAIR THOMSON

AnzAc MeMories was first published to acclaim in 1994, and has achieved
international renown for its pioneering contribution to the study of war memory
and mythology. Michael McKernan wrote that the book gave as good a picture of
the impact of the Great war on individuals and Australia as we are likely to get in
this generation, and Michael Roper concluded that an immense achievement of
this book is that it so clearly illuminates the historical processes that left men like
my grandfather forever struggling to fashion myths which they could live by. In
this new edition Alistair Thomson explores how the Anzac legend has transformed
over the past quarter century, how a post-memory of the Great war creates new
challenges and opportunities for making sense of the national past, and how
veterans war memories can still challenge and complicate national mythologies.
He returns to a family war history that he could not write about twenty years
ago because of the stigma of war and mental illness, and he uses newly released
Repatriation files to question his own earlier account of veterans post-war lives
and memories and to think afresh about war and memory.

EditEd by Putu Oka Sukanta

Edited by former political prisoner Putu Oka Sukanta, this collection brings
together voices from people around the archipelago who experienced the 196566
violence in Indonesia. Fifteen witnesses from Medan, Palu, Kendari, Yogyakarta,
Jakarta, Bali, Kupang and Sabu Island share stories of how they navigated this
horrifying period of Indonesian history and how they have lived with this past.
These are ordinary people who worked as teachers, artists, womens activists and
policemen before their lives were turned upside down when those considered
to be supporters of the Indonesian Communist Party began to be attacked.
These accounts, including one from a perpetrator who is now tormented by
guilt, and others from survivors who still feel isolated and rejected by society,
show how the violence continues to influence Indonesian society. This book
will be a valuable resource for students of history, of Indonesia and for people
wanting to understand the impact of the 196566 violence.

Edited by Bill Kent, Ros Pesman and Cynthia Troup

Long before the advent of modern tourism, Australians travelled to live


in Italy, or undertook extensive visits there. Indeed they continue to do so in
increasing numbers, as women and men find Italian partners; as business people
with European interests settle there; as retirees in their thousands seek the good
life that Italy in Ros Pesmans words, this culturally endowed place of rebirth
seems to promise.
While many are familiar with celebrated expatriates such as Germaine
Greer, Jeffrey Smart, Peter Robb and David Malouf, hundreds of other artists,
writers, musicians and intellectuals have made and continue to make a notable
contribution to the cultural and intellectual lives of both countries. Whilst
Australian Studies flourishes in Italian universities, Australian academics write
distinguished accounts of Italian history covering various eras. Despite this
sustained activity, the scholarly and cultural engagement of Australians with
Italy is not a well known story.
This collection seeks to map the past and present of the Australian love
affair with Italy, and yields rich insights into its causes, motivations and
transformations. Contributors include former Australian Ambassador to Italy
Rory Steele, poet Peter Porter, contemporary artists Euan Heng and Jo-Anne
Duggan, as well as distinguished academics and young scholars. Amongst the
diverse range of articles and vignettes are chapters by Ian Britain on Donald
Friends Italian years, Loretta Baldassar exploring the phenomenon of reverse
migration, and novelist Lisa Clifford reflecting on her family ties with Italy.
Australians in Italy will appeal to scholars and students of migration and
multiculturalism, Australian Studies, Italian Studies, and tourism and travel.
It will also delight those interested in Italy and all things Italian people of
Italian-Australian backgrounds, armchair and actual travellers, sojourners in
Italy, and the general reader.

In Timors chequered history, many other nation states have been involved.
The prime purpose of this book is to examine the role of the British in Timors
past. Timor was not a part of the British empire, nor important to its commerce.
However, Timor had a long relationshipindeed its longestwith Portugal.
Britains interest was thus largely indirect. Indirect as it was, this interest had two
peaks, marked by the Second World War and by the decolonisation of Southeast
Asia. These are recognised in this book, with the former being the concern of the
first four chapters, and the latter the focus of the last four.
The book concludes with an account of the Indonesian incorporation of Timor
into its territory. During this time, reporting by British diplomats was still copious
and perceptive. Britainwhich had by now withdrawn from Singaporeadopted
only a very limited policy-making role. But though its interest was more indirect
than ever, its role had implications for the independence that the Timorese finally
secured. Tarling suggests from this that post-colonial states are successor states of
empire.

Contemporary australian
politiCal party organisations
Edited by Narelle Miragliotta, Anika Gauja and Rodney Smith

Political parties have always been fundamental to Australias representative


democracy. As organisations, however, their continued centrality and
longevity depend upon their ability to respond to changing political, social
and technological circumstances, such as declining levels of membership and
partisan affiliation, and the rise of social media.
In this volume the first book dedicated to Australian political parties in
nearly a decade we bring together many of the leading scholars of Australian
politics to examine the evolving role and relevance of political parties
today. Chapters explore the diversity of Australian parties organisational
arrangements, the contemporary challenges they face, and the institutions
that shape their behaviour. The contributions tell a story of adaptation by
the Australian parties during a time of flux, one which suggests that party
organisations will be central to Australian political life for quite some time yet.

Dare Me!
The Life and Work of Gerald Glaskin

J o h n

B u r B i d g e

With a foreword by robert dessaix

Burbidge has done us a favour in bringing an important writer back to the spotlight, and
recounting a life that reveals much about marginality in twentieth century Australia.
Dennis Altman, author of Homosexual: Oppression and Liberation
A grand story masterfully told his management of detail is one of its strengths
quite an amazing accomplishment. Robert Dessaix

Burbidges biography rescues Glaskin from obscurity and uses his life to throw light on a
period of Australian history that is attracting more and more attention.
Graham Willett, President, Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives

gerald glaskin (19232000) pushed the boundaries of acceptability in what


he wrote and how he wrote it. his twenty major publications novels, short stories,
travelogues, memoirs, plays and more tackled such taboo subjects as homosexuality,
incest and parapsychology.
in the aftermath of the second World War glaskin challenged white australians to
re-examine their attitudes to asian and aboriginal people, and his 1965 novel No End
to the Way initially banned in his home country was groundbreaking in its frank
and honest portrayal of a homosexual relationship.
outside australia, glaskins books were translated into multiple languages and
garnered praise from critics and readers alike. he was hailed as the ace of australian
story tellers. Yet in his home country he was, and remains, a virtual nonentity.
Why did australia turn its back on him? Was it his delight in provoking people?
Was it his audacious, belligerent and at times overbearing manner? Was he a victim of
his countrys tall poppy syndrome, or of a provincial publishing industry?
This insightful biography probes the life and work of one of australias most
neglected writers and in so doing gives glaskin his proper due.

The essays in this collection explore transcultural


events to reveal deeper understandings of
the dynamic nature, power and affect
of performance as it is created and
witnessed across national and
cultural boundaries. Focusing
on historical and contemporary
public events in multiple contexts,
contributors offer readings of transcultural
exchanges between Europe, Asia and the Middle East,
between colonisers and the colonised and back again. In the
process the authors explore questions of aesthetics, cultural anxiety,
cultural control and how to realise intentions in performance practice.
Maryrose Casey is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow with the
Monash University Indigenous Centre. Her publications include Creating Frames:
Contemporary Indigenous Theatre (UQP 2004), Transnational Whiteness Matters
(Rowan Littlefield 2008) co-edited with Aileen Moreton-Robinson and Fiona Nicoll,
and Telling Stories: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Performance (ASP 2012).

WOMENS EXPERIENCES OF 1965 IN EASTERN INDONESIA
Edited by Mery Kolimon, Liliya Wetangterah and Karen Campbell-Nelson

The case studies in this report reveal a great deal of new knowledge. As far as I know, this
is the first study on the subject conducted by a Christian church in Indonesia Catholic
or Protestant It is therefore of utmost urgency that this book is distributed
as widely as possible. Studies such as this can lead to related initiatives
in memorialisation, reparations and education.

Edited by Mery Kolimon, Liliya Wetangterah

I am very appreciative and amazed at the work that has gone into this book; such a
complete study from the perspective of victims, especially women victims. What is very
interesting is how the church participated in the violence, or at least did not prevent
the violence from occurring. It adds to our knowledge about the impact of the political
turmoil after the military coup by Suharto and his accomplices, and how the anti-PKI
campaign has ruined many lives without them knowing why or what really happened.

Womens experiences of 1965 in Eastern Indonesia


Edited by Mery Kolimon, Lilya Wetangterah and Karen
Campbell-Nelson | Translated by Jennifer Lindsay

FORBIDDEN MEMORIES

FORBIDDEN MEMORIES
THIS IS the first book to consider the experiences of women survivors of the 1965
anti-communist violence in the majority Christian region of Eastern Indonesia. So far,
most studies of the 1965 violence have focused on the Muslim majority population of
Java and the Hindu majority population of Bali. Forbidden Memories presents stories
from across the regions of Sumba, Sabu, Alor, Kupang and other parts of West Timor
of women who were imprisoned and tortured or whose husbands were murdered. The
book comprises a critical examination of the role of the Protestant Church at the time
of the violence and, in its aftermath, the ongoing sanctions and political purges against
those considered to be supporters of the Indonesian Communist Party. The writers argue
that religious and state institutions failed to care for this vulnerable community in the
face of state terrorism and a culture of fear.
The editors and research team hope this publication will create a safe and peaceful
environment for survivors to tell their stories and have their stories acknowledged by
their society.

Jean Galbraith
Wr i t e r i n a Va l l e y
Meredith Fletcher

Winner: Victorian Community History Awards 2015

this is the story of Jean Galbraith, one of australias most influential botanists
and writers on nature, plants and gardens. during a writing career that spanned
seventy years, she turned botanical writing into a literary art, developed new
forms of garden writing in australia, and was tireless in spreading knowledge of
native plants. The magic of her writing delighted her readers. she put her vision of
nature into words and helped australians of all ages to see their own landscapes
in new ways.
This is also the story of a writer and her place, a valley in Gippsland, Victoria.
The valley was fundamental to her being and the source of her inspiration. she
celebrated the beauty of all she saw a peppermint tree by her fence, a drift of
wildflowers near a creek but she was also witness to encroaching industrialisation
that transformed her landscapes.
Through telling the story of Jean Galbraiths passion for nature and her simple
life, of her writing and its far-reaching influence, this book offers insights into
australias gardening, botanical and environmental history.

The Complete Writings 18981904

IN INDONESIA, the legacy of Raden Ajeng Kartini (18791904) is celebrated on


Kartini Day, 21 April, every year. Around the world Kartini is recognised as a major
figure in the history of the advancement of women, a tireless and effective advocate
of womens education and emancipation. However, this is the first complete and
unexpurgated collection of Kartinis published articles, memoranda and correspondence
ever published in any language.
This collection reveals Kartinis importance as a pioneer of the Indonesian nationalist
movement. Claiming in her letters and petitions her peoples right to national autonomy
well before her male compatriots did so publicly, Kartini used her writing in an attempt
to educate the Netherlands and Dutch colonialists about Java and the aspirations of
its people. Had she lived longer, she would have been one of Indonesias leading preindependence writers as well as an educationalist. In 1964 she was elevated to the status
of national hero by Indonesias first president, Sukarno. She has become one of the most
well known Asian figures in the international womens movement.
The product of several decades study and based on archival sources, Kartini is
extensively annotated and provided with an authoritative historical introduction by
one of the worlds leading Kartini authorities. This work will be the essential resource
for scholars and students of Kartini and her place in Indonesian history, around the
world, for many years to come.

Australias Greatest Citizen General

MAESTRO JOHN MONASH AUSTRALIAS GREATEST CITIZEN GENERAL


TiM Fischer
A perfected modern battle plan is like nothing so much as a score for an orchestral
composition, where the various arms and units are the instruments, and the tasks
they perform are their respective musical phrases. Every individual unit must make
its entry precisely at the proper moment and play its phrase in the general harmony.
John Monash
Who was the most innovative general of World War One? For Tim Fischer, the answer has
to be Australias Maestro John Monash, a man who, for all the recognition he received in
his lifetime and after, has arguably not been given his proper due.
Fischer also asks why Monash, Australian Army Corps commander, was never promoted to
field marshal, postwar, as international precedent suggested was most appropriate, pointing
the finger primarily at the Australian prime minister of the time, Billy Hughes, within a
wider context of establishment suspicion towards this son of a German Jewish migrant.

The Making of a ParTy SySTeM


Minor Parties in the australian senate
Zareh GhaZarian
Minor parties have come a long way in australia. From an era where there were
no minor parties in the national parliament, they have become crucial players in
shaping government policy and the political debate. This book charts the rise of
minor parties in the australian senate since the end of the second World War
and constructs an analytical framework to explain how they became the powerful
actors they are today. it shows that there has been a change in the type of minor
party elected. rather than be created as a result of a split in a major party, newer
minor parties have been mobilised by broad social movements with the aim of
advancing specific policy agendas. By shedding light on these parties, the book
shows how minor parties have impacted the australian political system and how
they look set to remain an important component of governance in the future.

ANDREW SCOTT

The nations of Scandinavia and Finland, or Nordic Europe, continue to provide


living proof that economic prosperity can be combined with social equality and
environmental responsibility. This book, written from an Australian perspective,
explores previous outside policy interest in the Nordic nations and outlines some
lessons which the English-speaking world, in particular, can learn now from the
achievements of the four main Nordic European nations. In terms of income
distribution these countries are still much more equal than Australia, Britain,
New Zealand and Canada and nearly twice as equal as the United States.
Workforce participation rates are high in the Nordic nations but working hours
remain within reasonable limits, enabling genuine worklife balance. Sweden
has played a leading role in improving wellbeing, and lowering poverty, among
children. Finland has achieved stunning success in schools since the 1990s.
Denmark invests in comprehensive skills training as part of providing security,
as well as flexibility, in peoples employment lives. Norways taxation approach
and other measures ensure that its natural resources are used sustainably for
the entire nations long-term wealth. All of these achievements are relevant to
the policy choices for the future which Australia, and other English-speaking
countries, can now make.
Dr Andrew Scott is Professor in Politics and Policy at Deakin University,
Melbourne. He is the author of four previous books and numerous book chapters
and articles on aspects of politics, policy and history, frequently involving
international comparisons. For several years Andrew has been researching
English-speaking nations past interest in and lessons they can learn from
the policy achievements of the Nordic European nations.

HeatH er neils on

The late Gore Vidal occupied a unique position within American letters. Born into a
political family, he ran for office several times, but was consistently critical of his nations
political system and its leaders. A prolific writer in several genres, he was also widely
known particularly in the United States on the basis of his frequent appearances in
the various electronic media.
In this groundbreaking work examining the central theme of power throughout
Vidals writings, Heather Neilson focuses primarily on Vidals historical fiction. In his
novels depicting American history and those set in ancient times, Vidal evokes a world
in which deliberately propagated falsehood disinformation becomes established as
truth. Neilson engages with Vidals representations of political and religious leaders, and
with his deeply ambivalent fascination with the increasingly inescapable influence of the
media. She asserts that Vidals oeuvre has a Shakespearean resonance in its persistent
obsession with the question of what constitutes legitimate power and authority.

academic philosophy. The essays in this collection examine the influence of


Gaitas ethical thought in this broad sense, and particularly within Australian
society and culture, where it has been most significant. Through his various
works, including in particular his acclaimed biography, Romulus: My Father,
Gaitas ethical thought has had a considerable impact on the intellectual
and cultural life of Australia. This collection is unique for its survey of this
influence, with new essays from significant writers and academics, including
Barry Hill, Alex Miller, Brigitta Olubas, Helen Pringle, Robert Manne, Gerry
Simpson, Steven Tudor, Geoffrey Brahm Levey, Dorothy Scott, Christopher
Cordner, Craig Taylor and Miranda Fricker, along with an introductory piece
by J.M. Coetzee. Other features of the collection include a new poem for Gaita
by poet and screenwriter Nick Drake and an interview with Gaita by Anne
Manne, in which Gaita reflects on the origins and development of his ethical
thought as a form of lucidity.

In 1956 Bernard Smith wrote that we in Australia were migratory birds. This
was to become a leading motif of his own thinking, and a significant inspiration
for Peter Beilharz. Beilharz came to argue that the idea of the antipodes made
sense less in its geographical than its cultural form, viewed as a relation rather
than a place. Australians had one foot here and one there, whichever there this
was. This way of thinking with and after Bernard Smith makes up one current of
Beilharzs best Australian essays.
Two other streams contribute to the collection. The second recovers and
publicises antipodean intellectuals, from Childe to Evatt to Stretton to Jean
Martin, who have often been overshadowed here by the reception given to
metropolitan celebrity thinkers; and examines others, like Hughes and Carey,
who have been celebrated as writers more than as interpreters of the antipodean
condition.
The third stream engages with mainstream views of Australian writing, and
with the limits of these views. If we think in terms of cultural traffic, then the
stories we tell about Australia will also be global and regional in a broader sense.
Australia is the result of cultural traffic, local and global.

errance n. 1 the act of travelling from one place to another


without any clear destination 2 a wandering of the mind

The eleventh edition of Monash Universitys creative writing annual collects


itinerant stories and poems that draw their energy from travel, in-between
spaces, and the unknown.
Characters travel from country to country, or drift between borders;
they dont know where they are. Poems buzz in the liminal space between
knowing and being. They delight in the incommensurable. Mars, Iraq, sex,
death, thinking statues, vulgar tourists, journeys to the underworld, insects,
geometry, music, the abject and the rapturous are all invited.
Verge 2015 includes works from established and emerging writers from
Australia and around the world.
