JULYDECEMBER 2016

IN THE SECOND HALF of 2016 there are


a number titles were especially proud to
be publishing. While space doesnt permit
mentioning them all, I do want to point to a
handful. The first is Charlie Wards account
of the Gurindji peoples struggle for selfsufficiency and independence in the wake of
their famous walk-off, in the mid-1960s, and
subsequent attainment of land rights, granted
in an historic ceremony by then prime minister
Gough Whitlam. The story of the Gurindjis
casting off the shackles of virtual slave labour,
on outback pastoral stations, slow building of
public and official support for their right to
self-determination, and difficult years spent
trying to put that dream into practice, is at
once inspiring, disillusioning, and instructive.
A Handful of Sand will be launched to mark the
50 th anniversary of the walk-off, near where
it happened, at Kalkaringi in the Northern
Territory.
How to Vote Progressive in Australia has
anticipated and fed into an important and what
may well be a protracted public debate about
the role of the Greens within the Australian
polity. This feels already like a small classic of
Australian political engagement.
Joan Healys Writing for Raksmey: A Story
of Cambodia provides a human history of
the recent decades of this troubled and
impoverished nation. As one who has lived
and worked in Cambodia for many years, she
shows what life has been and is like for those
who survived the atrocities of Pol Pot only to
face a continuing fight for freedom and dignity
within a brutally corrupt and oppressive
regime. Though she writes for Raksmey, a
Cambodian man she has known since birth,
her account is both exquisitely readable and
enormously relevant.
Our continuing interest in our region, with
Indonesia a special focus, is borne out in
Revolution in the City of Heroes: A Memoir of

the Battle that Sparked Indonesias National


Revolution. Written by Suhario Padmodiwiryo,
who went on to attain the rank of General and
play a major role in Indonesian development,
and translated by Frank Palmos, whose
translation of Bao Ninhs The Sorrow of War
was ranked by the London-based Society
of Authors as one of 50 Best Translations
of the 20th Century, this is an exciting and
illuminating account of a vital military
encounter virtually forgotten outside of
Indonesia.
Much closer to home, for us, The Vagabond
Papers of Melbournes nineteenth-century
muckraking journalist John Stanley James
(The Vagabond), first published in the 1960s,
is being re-issued in an expanded edition that
takes in James always colourful life and work
in Virginia, USA, and New Caledonia. This new
edition will re-kindle interest in a writer and a
world already regarded as fascinating by many
of Australias notable journalists and social
historians. Michael Cannon, the books editor
and one of Australias most popular historians,
will speak at a number of events we are staging
in collaboration with our co-publishers for this
project, the State Library of Victoria.
Finally, Avan Judd Stallards immensely
learned, stylish and richly illustrated Antipodes:
In Search of the Southern Continent, is a book
which, in bringing to mind the sensitive and
atmospheric historical scholarship of the
late Greg Dening, will I hope afford us a new
understanding of and sympathy for those
courageous explorers and scientists who sailed,
vainly, in search of the mythic great southern
continent. What they found, and what they did,
suggests Stallard, was none the less valuable for
having been driven by ancient lore, scientistic
speculation, avarice and folly.

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.

strongly divergent views. Dedicated to progressive change, it aims both to capture

in the remote Northern Territory of Australia heralded
a revolution in the cattle industry and a massive shift in
Aboriginal affairs. Now, after many years of research,A

candid and perceptive hand,A Handful of Sand reveals the
path Vincent Lingiari and other Gurindji elders took to
achieve their land rights victory, and how their struggles in
fact began, rather than ended, with Whitlams handback.

Writing for Raksmey

By Joan Healy
Anna Akhmatova wrote, of the millions who

people she introduces us to we wont forget. We have

Writing for Raksmey tells of the lives of six families


JOAN HEALY
who fled the aftermath of the Cambodian killing
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 that legacy is
important to their future.
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 to human
goodness that was never quenched.
This 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.

Antipodes
In Search of the Southern Continent
By Avan Judd Stallard
This remarkable book is about an imaginary place:
Terra Australis Incognita, the Unknown Southern
Land an informative and entertaining mixture
of geography, history and epistemology, at once
academically rigorous and approachable. It is also
about the history of ideas and how ideas interact
with reality. It is lavishly illustrated with numerous
wonderful and obscure maps, and will appeal
to readers with an interest in geography and old
maps, as much as those fascinated by the history of
exploration and the great journeys of discovery. This
book is a visual and intellectual feast.
Dave Martus, Books+Publishing
Antipodes: In Search of the Southern Continent is a
new history of an ancient geography. It reassesses
the evidence for why Europeans believed a
massive southern continent existed, and why they
advocated for its discovery. When ships were equal to ambitions, explorers set out to find and
claim Terra Australissaid to be as large, rich and varied as all the northern lands combined.
Antipodes charts these voyagesvoyages both through the imagination and across the High
Seasin pursuit of the mythical Terra Australis. In doing so, the question is asked: how could
so many fail to see the realities they encountered? And how is it a mythical land held the gaze
of an era famed for breaking free the shackles of superstition?
That Terra Australis did not exist didnt stop explorers pursuing the continent to its
Antarctic obsolescence, unwilling to abandon the promise of such a rich and magnificent land
till it was stripped of every ounce of value it had ever promised. In the process, the southern
continentan imaginary landbecame one of the shaping forces of early modern history.
Avan Judd Stallard is a historian whose interests in diverse fields (e.g., philosophy,
psychology, biological sciences, philology) are underpinned by an abiding concern with
method and epistemologyhow we get to knowledge and what we purport to do with it. He is
a proponent of greater consilience between the sciences and humanities.

The Conscription Conflict and the Great War


Edited by RobIn Archer, Joy Damousi, Murray Goot and Sean Scalmer
While the Great War raged, Australians were
twice asked to vote on the question of military
conscription for overseas service. The recourse to
popular referendum on such an issue at such a time
was without precedent anywhere in the world. The
campaigns precipitated mass mobilisation, bitter
argument, a split in the Labor Party, and the fall
of a government. The defeat of the proposals was
hailed by some as a victory of democracyover
militarism, mourned by others as an expression
of political disloyalty or a symptom of failed selfgovernment.
But while the memory of the conscription
campaigns once loomed large, it has increasingly
been overshadowed by a preoccupation with the
sacrifice and heroism of Australian soldiersa
preoccupation that has been reinforced during the
centennial commemorations.
This volume redresses the balance. Across
nine chapters, distinguished scholars consider
the origins, unfolding, and consequences of the
conscription campaigns, comparing local events with experiences in Britain, the United States,
and other countries. A corrective to the militarisation of Australian history, it is also a major
new exploration of a unique and defining episode in Australias past.
Robin Archer is Director of the postgraduate program in Political Sociology at the London
School of Economics and Emeritus Fellow in Politics at Corpus Christi College, Oxford. He is
the author of Economic Democracy and Why Is There No Labor Party in the United States?

Beyond Gallipoli
New Perspectives on Anzac
Edited by Raelene Frances and Bruce Scates

BEYOND
GALLIPOLI

Much of the scholarship on the Great War, and


especially the Dardanelles/anakkale campaign,
has been viewed through a narrow national prism
and focused exclusively on military aspects of
the engagement. This new collection of essays
offers fresh perspectives from countries on both
sides of the trenches of Gallipoli. Examined here
NEW PERSPECTIVES ON ANZAC
are intersections of art and memory and the role
that material culture and museums play in the

representation and commemoration of war. The
ideas and writing draw on fiction, poetry and diaries,
as well as new digital media, which together frame
the memory of war. Our ongoing encounter with
Gallipolis much-contested landscape takes on new
hues and reveals untold stories. Beyond Gallipoli
takes an innovative approach to the varied and
controversial cultural legacies of an event which
continues to shape the identities of Australia, New
Zealand, and Turkey.

Revolution in the City of Heroes


A Memoir of the Battle that Sparked Indonesias National Revolution
By Suhario Padmodiwiryo; translated by Frank Palmos
We were just boys in a mans game. Deep down, we were
aware that none of us had sufficient military expertise
to enable us to face an invasion by a modern army.

REVOLUTION
IN THE
CITY OF HEROES

The battle of Surabaya looms large in the history of


Indonesia. Yet the story of this battle is not well known
A Memoir of the Battle that Sparked Indonesias National Revolution
outside of that nation.
Suhario Padmodiwiryo
Newly liberated from nearly four brutal years under
Translated by Frank Palmos
Japanese control, the people of the lands that would
become Indonesia faced great uncertainty in October
1945, as the British Army attempted to deal with
surrendered Japanese personnel and restore Dutch
colonial rule. The youth of Surabaya seized Japanese
arms and repelled the force sent to occupy this city.
They then held off British reinforcements for two
weeks, battling tanks and heavy artillery with little
more than light weapons and sheer audacity. Though
eventually defeated, Surabayas defenders had set the
stage for Indonesias national revolution.
Based on the diary of 24-year-old Indonesian medical student Suhario Padmodiwiryo,
Revolution in the City of Heroes is an evocative first-hand account of the popular uprising in
Surabaya. It vividly portrays the chaotic swirl of events and the heady emotion of young people
ready to sacrifice their lives for independence, and is essential reading for Australians seeking to
gain a better understanding of their increasingly important northern neighbour.
Suhario Padmodiwiryo, Hario Kecik to his friends and family, was born in Surabaya on
12 May 1921. He began a career in medicine but his studies were cut short by the arrival of the
Japanese. After his extraordinary experiences as a Deputy Commander of forces fighting in
Surabaya in 1945, he stayed in the newly formed Indonesian National Army, rising eventually
to the rank of General. Later placed under house arrest by President Suharto, General Suhario
published his memoirs in Indonesian in 1995.
Frank Palmos is a journalist, historian and translator. His translation of Bao Ninhs The
Sorrow of War was ranked by the London-based Society of Authors as one of 50 Best Translations

Conceiving the Goddess


Transformation and Appropriation in Indic Religions
Edited by Jayant Bhalchandra Bapat and Ian Mabbett
Conceiving the Goddess is a sequel to The Iconic
Female: Goddesses of India, Nepal and Tibet (2008),
an exploration of goddess cults in South Asia, and it
embodies further researches on South Asian goddesses
in various disciplines. The theme running through all
the contributions, with their multiple approaches and
points of view, is the concept of appropriation, a notion
prominent in recent scholarship. In the present case of
goddess worship, appropriation can be recognised when
one religious group adopts a religious belief or practice
not formerly its own.
What is the motivation behind these actions? Are
such actions attempts to dominate, or to resist the
domination of others, or to adapt to changing social
circumstances, or simply to enrich the religious

questions in a variety of settingsa Jain goddess
lurking in a Brahminical temple, a village goddess who
turned into the patroness of the powerful Peshwa lords, the millennia-long story of the goddess
Ekveera who was adopted by a fishing community, the mythology of Prvat, consort of the
great god iva, the fraught relationship between the humble Camr caste and the river goddess
Gag, the changing political roles of Durg in the annual celebrations of her cult, the mutual
appropriation of disciple and goddess in the tantric exercises of Kashmiri aivism, and the
alarming self-decapitation of the fierce goddess Chinnamast.
Jayant Bapat holds doctorates in Organic Chemistry and Indology and is a research fellow
at the Monash Asia Institute. His research interests include Hinduism, goddess cults, Fisher
community of Mumbai and Jainism and he has published widely in these areas. He is co-editor
of The Iconic Female and The Indian Disapora: 150 Years of Hindus and Sikhs in Australia. For
his work in education and for the Indian community, Jayant was awarded the Order of Australia
Medal (OAM) in 2011.
Ian Mabbett has taught Asian history at Monash University since 1965, where he remains
an adjunct research fellow. He has also taught and carried out research at Princeton and at

RECENT HIGHLIGHTS
Australian Religious Thought
AUSTRALIAN RELIGIOUS THOUGHT
WAYNE HUDSON
The history of Australian religious thought receives here the
sophisticated treatment that it richly deserves, in the hands of an author
of phenomenal learning and intellectual range.
Frank Bongiorno

Wayne Hudsons great achievement is to explicate the more subtle forms


of religious discourse conducted here in a way that illuminates the life of
the mind in Australia. Stuart Macintyre

Australian Religious Thought is the first major study of this field. Wayne Hudson
argues that religious thought can be found in many intellectuals in Australia, both
in the religiously inclined and in those who were not conventionally religious.
Drawing together existing and new research, he opens up new perspectives and
re-thematises this area of enquiry in six exploratory studies. The concept of
sacral secularity is used to complicate and contest discussions of the secular in
Australia. Religious liberalism is interpreted as transnational and as often a source
of social reform. Interactions between religious thought and philosophy are
discussed in some detail, as is the development of theology, which has received
relatively little attention from historians. Account is also taken of what might be
called postsecular consciousness in many intellectuals.
Taking religious thought more seriously suggests possible revisions to the way
the national story has been told. There has been more serious intellectual life in
Australia than historians have generally acknowledged, and a considerable part
of it was in a broad sense religious.
Wayne Hudson works across the fields of philosophy, history, politics and
religion. He is an authority on the German Jewish philosopher Ernst Bloch and
a leading historian of English deism. He has published eighteen books and is an
an Adjunct Professor at Charles Sturt University and the University of Tasmania.

WAYNE HUDSON

There was more religious thought in Australia than historians


have previously acknowledged. It was also intrinsically interesting
and often socially important. This book is the first major study of
Australian religious thought. Wayne Hudson argues that religious
thought can be found in a great many intellectuals in Australia, both the religiously inclined
and in those not conventionally religious. Account is also taken of post-secular consciousness
in many intellectuals. This book opens up new perspectives and re-thematises the field in
six highly original exploratory studies. Hudson demonstrates, finally, how taking religious
thought more seriously suggests possible revisions to how the Australian national story has
been told.

SAVED TO
REMEMBER

Raoul Wallenberg, Budapest 1944 and After

RAOUL WALLENBERG,

BUDAPEST 1944 AND AFTER

By Frank Vajda

FRANK VAJDA

Frank Vajda, a major figure in Australian neurology, was a boy in Budapest,


Hungary, during the Second World War. In the care of his courageous and
ever-resourceful mother, he survived the attempt by Hitlers Nazis and a fascist
Hungarian militia to murder him, his family and the rest of the Jews of this nation.
In Saved to Remember Vajda vividly and matter-of-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 to publicly recognise and honour those, particularly
Wallenberg, who risked their own lives in the attempt to save Jewish lives.
At a time when the memory of this period of Hungarian history is increasingly
contested, Frank Vajdas memoir is important both for what it reveals of what
happened and for what it says of how these events should be remembered.

This is a compelling book, telling the story of the nonpareil of rescuers,


Wallenberg, and of his survivors, and one in particular, on an intimate
and utterly convincing and riveting scale. I hope the world reads this
book and absorbs the message. Thomas Keneally

Activism and Aid


Young Citizens Experiences of Development and Democracy in
East Timor
ACTIVISM AND AID
YOUNG CITIZENS EXPERIENCES OF DEVELOPMENT
AND DEMOCRACY IN TIMOR-LESTE

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.
Kirsty Sword Gusmo, Chair, Alola Foundation & Goodwill Ambassador
for Education of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste

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.

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


rejected top down approaches and recognised the importance of participatory approaches
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 their generation. Three generations of Timorese: 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 about how
aid influenced processes of development can work in greater harmony with the people to
realise their own visions of the future of the nation.

have womenon different levelslived in Afghanistan? How have
they been treated, both in the private sphere and in public? And how
did they resist mistreatment during the war inside Afghanistan, in
refugee camps or in diaspora? Who are the sponsors and perpetrators
of human rights violations against Afghanistani women? What are
the connections between Islam, local customs, the mistreatment of
women, and womens connectedness to revolution and jihad? This
book provides answers to these questions through an innovative study of the life and short

Afghanistan is regarded as a classical patriarchal society, where social tradition,


religious doctrine and socio-economic and cultural backwardness have made women
second-class citizens. But what has been the nature of life for women in Afghanistan?
How have they been treated, both in the private sphere and in public? How did
they resist mistreatment during the war inside Afghanistan, in refugee camps or in
diaspora? Who are the sponsors and perpetrators of violence against Afghanistani
women? And what are the connections between Islam, local customs, the mistreatment
of women, and womens connectedness to revolution and jihad? This book provides
answers to these questions through an innovative study of the life and short stories
of one of the countrys leading female writers, Maryam Mahboob. It offers a different
image of both the suffering and resistance of Afghanistani women than that which the
West has come to know.
Dr Faridullah Bezhan was born and grew up in Afghanistan, where he taught
literature at Kabul University. He is now a Senior Research Fellow at the Monash Asia
Institute, Monash University, Australia. He has published several books and articles in
English and Persian on the history and literature of Afghanistan, especially the work
of the countrys prominent and emerging female authors.
