Waltzing with Jack Dancer

A slow dance with cancer

Geoff Goodfellow, Grace Goodfellow, Randy Larcombe

'Geoff Goodfellow is one of those rare people who says what he thinks, usually with a few expletives added. When he learned he had cancer, he told the disease what he thought of it and, like a boxer, prepared himself for the fight ahead. Yet Geoff is also a sensitive man whose poems tap into the emotions unleashed by a close encounter with death. Randy Larcombe's photographs are a perfect match. They are brutally honest about the impact of cancer and the treatment of it, and at the same time they are deeply moving because they reveal the human frailty of this proud man.' - Roy Eccleston ...

Warrant for Genocide

The myth of the Jewish world conspiracy and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion

Norman Cohn

Hitler's anti-semitic obsession was fuelled by the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a hugely successful forgery containing the master-plan of an alleged Jewish conspiracy to control the world.

In a fascinating work of literary and historical detection, Norman Cohn unravels the origins of the Protocols. Tracing its roots in anti-semitic mythology, Cohn pinpoints the collaboration of hack writers and secret policemen in concocting a book that, published around the world, was once second only to the Bible in its circulation. ...

What Does it Mean to Be a Saint?

Reflections on Mary MacKillop, saints and holiness in the Catholic tradition

When They Came for You

Elegies of resistance

Christopher Barnett

In this solemn act of remembering, the poet pulls onto his shoulders the terrible weight of 'this world gone wrong' and bears it for us all.

Where Shadows Have Fallen

The descent of Henry Kendall

Adrian Mitchell

Henry Kendall was once regarded as Australia's finest poet, compared favourably with Wordsworth. His poetry was romantic, sentimental in its celebration of the Australian bush he loved. But he was more Henry Lawson than John Keats: a self-pitying wife deserter, cadger and drunkard. And it ran in the family.

In this intriguing work of literary investigation, celebrated author and historian Adrian Mitchell delves deep into Kendall's storied life and uncovers a dark past that casts new shadows on his legacy. He discovers that this habitually self-effacing poet had good reason to keep himself and his family out of the limelight. This is the true story of Henry Kendall, his parents and his grandparents - and he had every reason to dread it being made public.
