The Little Book of the 1960s by Dee Gordon Book Summary:

Based on quirky facts and fascinating data, with a discerning eye on the bizarre, the frivolous and the funny, The Little Book of the 1960s is nostalgia with a difference. The sights, the sounds, the lifestyle, the whole 1960s experience can be relived through the pages of this book, but be warned – you’ll need a sense of humour. It’s a book that can be dipped in to time and time again to reveal something new about the people, the fashions, the scandals and the enduring fascination of a decade that was truly the most colourful of all. Did You Know? When the Beatles played at the Birkenhead YMCA in 1962 for just £30 (the same year Decca famously turned them down because ‘groups with guitars were on their way out’), they were booed off stage. When Barbara Windsor and the cast of Sparrers Can’t Sing were filming in the East End in the early 1960s, the Krays were hired to provide security on the set. When Princess Margaret married photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones in May 1960, she became the first royal to marry a commoner for 450 years.

Pictures of Time Beneath by Kirsty Douglas Book Summary:

Pictures of Time Beneath examines three celebrated heritage landscapes: Adelaide’s Hallett Cove, Lake Callabonna in the far north of South Australia, and the World Heritage listed Willandra Lakes Region of New South Wales. It offers philosophical insights into significant issues of heritage management, our relationship with Australian landscapes, and an original perspective on our understanding of place, time, nation and science. Glaciers in Adelaide, cow-sized wombats, monster kangaroos, desert dunes littered with freshwater mussels, ancient oases and inland seas: a diverse group of deep-time imaginings is the subject of this ground-breaking book. Ideas about a deep past in Australia are central to broader issues of identity, belonging, uniqueness, legitimacy and intellectual community. This journey through Australia’s natural histories examines the way landscapes and landforms are interpreted to realise certain visions of the land, the nation and the past in the context of contemporary notions of geological heritage, cultural property, cultural identity and antiquity.

THE BODY THIEF - Book Two of the Sydney Harbour Hospital Series by Chris Taylor Book Summary:

A race against time… Samantha Wolfe is no stranger to death. As a senior forensic pathologist at the Department of Forensic Medicine in Sydney, she’s lost count of the number of post mortems she’s performed in the quest to find answers. But something strange is happening in the Glebe Morgue. The number of bodies coming through with donated organs has surged upwards and there doesn’t appear to be any valid reason. Has the government’s initiatives to increase the number of organ donors finally paid off, or is something far more sinister at play? The more Sam delves into the mystery, the more she’s certain evil lurks nearby. Detective Sergeant Rohan Coleridge is put in charge of the investigation and he’s not exactly happy about it. The last time he spoke to Samantha Wolfe, she was a college student and accused him of walking out on his responsibilities. Taking on the investigation means significant hours spent up close and personal with her and he’s not sure if either of them will walk away unscathed… or even if he wants to. The more Rohan investigates, the more he’s convinced something is amiss, but is the perpetrator one of the doctors of the prestigious Sydney Harbour Hospital, or is it someone far closer to home….?

It's Not the Winning that Counts by Max Davidson Book Summary:

From Ancient Greece to the Beijing Olympics, sport has delivered thrilling victories and gut-wrenching defeats, but moments of good sportsmanship are increasingly rare. Is chivalry dead? Or have rumours of its demise been exaggerated? Whether displayed by an Australian sculler or an Egyptian judoka, sportsmanship has come in many guises. It?s Not the Winning that Counts celebrates the Boy's Own heroism of yachtsman Pete Goss's mercy dash across the Southern Ocean to rescue a capsized French rival; recalls the high ideals of the gentleman-amateurs of the Corinthian Football Club; salutes Freddie Flintoff, hero of the 2005 Ashes, commiserating with an opponent before celebrating with team-mates; and takes its hat off to Jack Nicklaus, conceding a two-foot putt on the final green of the 1969 Ryder Cup. At its best, sportsmanship has reverberated around the world - from German athlete Lutz Long publicly befriending the black American runner Jesse Owens at the 1936 Berlin Olympics to Russian chess player Boris Spassky conducting himself impeccably during his Cold War showdown with Bobby Fischer.

General Defences in Criminal Law by Alan Reed,Michael Bohlander Book Summary:

The law relating to general defences is one of the most important areas in the criminal law, yet the current state of the law in the United Kingdom reveals significant problems in the adoption of a consistent approach to their doctrinal and theoretical underpinnings, as exemplified by a number of recent developments in legislation and case law. A coherent and joined-up approach is still missing. This volume provides an analysis of the main contentious areas in British law, and proposes ways forward for reform. The collection includes contributions from leading experts across various jurisdictions. Part I examines the law in the United Kingdom, with specialist contributions on Irish and Scottish law. Part II consists of contributions by authors from a number of foreign jurisdictions, all written to a common research grid for maximum comparability, which provide a wider background of how other legal systems treat problems relating to general defences in the context of the criminal law, and which may serve as points of reference for domestic law reform.

The Defence of Passing On by Michael Rush Book Summary:

The identity and existence of a loss-based defence in the law of unjust enrichment is disputed. Widely known as 'passing on', but better identified as 'disimpoverishment', this defence has generated confusion and disagreement across and within England, Australia, Canada and the United States of America. This book seeks to address these problems in three ways. First, by providing a solution to the defence's terminological problems and presenting a coherent picture of the current state of the law. Secondly, by examining whether a defendant's unjust enrichment can be said to have come 'at the expense of' a claimant when a third party has borne the cost of that enrichment. Put another way, whether awards of restitution are, or should be, restricted by the value of a claimant's loss. And finally, by analyzing the reasons in favour of accepting or rejecting a loss-based defence in the law of unjust enrichment. Numerous scholarly textbooks and law journals have devoted space to these issues. This work, however, has tended to focus narrowly on either particular cases or sets of issues. This book seeks to address this deficiency by collating, and providing total coverage of, the controversies and questions pertaining to a loss-based defence in the law of unjust enrichment.This work will be essential reading for anyone interested in the law of restitution, and in its relationship with other areas of private law.

A History of Gastric Secretion and Digestion by Horace W Davenport Book Summary:

For centuries men speculated about the process of gastric digestion, but Iate in the eighteenth and early in the nineteenth centuries physiologists, both physicians and laymen, began to accumulate experimental evidence about its nature. At the same time, others discovered that the stomach is capable of secreting a strong mineral acid, and the questions of how that secretion is produced and how it is controlled became enduring problems. A Iittle later, the discovery that an acid extract of dead gastric mucosa is capable of digesting meat put the study of gastric secretion and digestion on a firm mechanistic foundation. From that time to the present, physi ologists have assiduously investigated gastric secretion and digestion, with the result that knowledge ofthose topics is as comprehensive and penetrating as isthat about other physiological processes. In addition, that knowledge is the basis of discrimi nating and effective clinical practice. I have described the experimental study of gastric secretion and digestion for two reasons. The firstisthat the successes and some ofthe failures ofphysiologists over two centuries are important parts of intellectual history that deserve to be recorded. The second is that some of those who use the accumulated knowledge every day are curious about its genesis. I assume that my readers have the technical knowledge to understand what I have written. If my account does not fully satisfy their curiosity, I have provided references that will open the path to further study.

J. T. Wilson and the Fraternity of Duckmaloi by Patricia Morison Book Summary:

In the 1890s four young scientists at Sydney University - two Scots, a Londoner and an Australian - began sustained research into Australian native fauna for which each was awarded the FRS. They all went on to pursue notable careers in the biological sciences, concluding in London 46-8 and Cambridge.This book follows their careers and enduring friendship exploring in detail the life of its senior member, J.T. Wilson (1861-1945), who was professor of anatomy at Sydney University (1890-1920) and Cambridge (1920-1933) and had abiding interests in science, philosophy, education and military affairs.The narrative is mainly concerned with issues of historical interest to scientists and medical educationists though some, like Empire relations and the contribution of Scots to Australia's development, will interest a wider readership. Many of the preoccupations of Wilson and his colleagues remain topical: the debate between biological science and religion; the struggle to interpret Darwin's theory without placingHomo sapiens at the top of an evolutionary tree; pure versus applied science; vocationalism versusscholarship in university education.

John of Gaunt by Sydney Armitage-Smith Book Summary:

“’Old John Gaunt, time-honoured Lancaster.’ What name on the roll of English princes is more familiar? What actor in the great drama of English history has been watched with less attention? Two striking episodes in the Duke’s history have been related again and again, and from all points of view. The defence of John Wycliffe and the attack on Sir Peter de la Mare and William of Wykeham—these are the communes of the history of the Church and of the Constitution. But for the rest, the Duke makes his exits and his entrances, but it is upon the other players in the piece that the audience fix their attention. His strong and persistent craving for continental royalty, the keynote to his character, has been strangely neglected. The man has never yet lived and moved among the historic figures of his age or nation. “Old John of Gaunt, and gaunt in being old:” the words have fixed in our minds the idea of a feudal magnate, the venerable uncle of a young and spendthrift king, but with Richard II, who asks “Can sick men play so nicely with their names?” we do not listen, but go on our way and leave him. Yet, however inadequately conceived, the figure of John of Gaunt, which filled so large a place in the story of his times, has appealed to our imagination. Though the man is almost a stranger to us, his name is a household word. Traces of his doings are met with on every side, for he seems to have been everywhere and to have attempted everything.” This classic biography of John Gaunt is organized as follows: Introduction I. Birth of John of Gaunt II. The First Campaign III. The Invasion of Castile IV. The Outbreak of War V. The Naval Question VI. The “Good” Parliament VII. The Last Parliament of Edward III—Trial of Wycliffe—Quarrel With the City VIII. Lancaster and the Church IX. Death of Edward Iii X. The Lancastrian Estates XI. Lancaster Returns to Power XII. Parliament and the King of Castile XIII. The Second Invasion of Castile XIV. John of Gaunt the Peacemaker XV. The Duchy of Aquitaine XVI. Lancaster’s Third Marriage

Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper Book Summary:

A New York Times bestseller for three years and counting! “A gutsy, candid, and compelling story. It speaks volumes.” —School Library Journal (starred review) “Unflinching and realistic.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) From award-winning author Sharon Draper comes a story that will forever change how we all look at anyone with a disability, perfect for fans of RJ Palacio’s Wonder. Eleven-year-old Melody is not like most people. She can’t walk. She can’t talk. She can’t write. All because she has cerebral palsy. But she also has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She’s the smartest kid in her whole school, but NO ONE knows it. Most people—her teachers, her doctors, her classmates—dismiss her as mentally challenged because she can’t tell them otherwise. But Melody refuses to be defined by her disability. And she’s determined to let everyone know it…somehow.

Eleven-year-old Melody is not like most people. She can’t walk. She can’t talk. She can’t write. All because she has cerebral palsy. But she also has a photographic memory; she can remember every detail of everything she has ever experienced. She’s the smartest kid in her whole school, but NO ONE knows it. Most people—her teachers, her doctors, her classmates—dismiss her as mentally challenged because she can’t tell them otherwise. But Melody refuses to be defined by her disability. And she’s determined to let everyone know it…somehow.

Oxfordshire Colony by Christopher Sladen Book Summary:

This is the first independent account of a unique institution, the Wallingford Farm Training Colony - later known simply as 'Turners Court' - which opened a century ago. Founded by a group of philanthropic non-conformists, the 'Colony' aimed to take unemployed young men off the streets, train them on the land and send them off to the 'Dominions'. During its 80 year history, Turners Court's clientele, training programme and lifestyle all changed radically. The author has used the institution's own records, together with the (mainly unpublished) accounts of former 'colonists' and staff members, and sets the history of the Colony in the context of 20th century legislation, economic and social change.

The Oxford Handbook of Human Capital by Alan Burton-Jones,J. -C. Spender Book Summary:

Macroeconomic research on human capital - the stock of human capabilities and knowledge - has been extensively published but to date the literature has lacked a comprehensive analysis of human capital within the organization. The Oxford Handbook of Human Capital has been designed to fill that gap, providing an authoritative, inter-disciplinary, and up to date survey of relevant concepts, research areas, and applications. Specially commissioned contributions from over 40 authors reveal the importance of human capital for contemporary organizations, exploring its conceptual underpinnings, relevance to theories of the firm, implications for organizational effectiveness, interdependencies with other resources, and role in the future economy. Unlike neoclassical macroeconomic concepts of human capital, human capital in organizations is shown to be dynamic and heterogeneous, requiring new theories and management frameworks. The systemic role of human capital is explored, revealing it as the lynchpin of social, structural and other forms of intangible and tangible capital. Connections between human capital and organizational performance are investigated from HR management, procurement, alignment, value appropriation, and accounting perspectives. Links between micro and macro perspectives are provided through analyses of inter firm human capital mobility, national and regional human capital formation regimes and industry employment relations practices. This Handbook is designed for scholars and graduate students of organization and management theory, strategy, entrepreneurship, knowledge and intellectual capital, accounting, IT, HR, IR, economic sociology and cultural studies. For policy makers and practitioners it should provide an up to date guide to the nature and role of human capital in contemporary organizations and the roles that government, industry and other extra firm institutions can play in facilitating its development.

Ecology and Conservation of Owls by Ian Newton,Rodney Kavanagh,Jerry Olsen,Iain Taylor Book Summary:

Owls in Australia are difficult to find and study, so comparatively little is known about their biology. Even less is known about the status, taxonomy, and biology of those species and sub-species living in tropical and subtropical environments and on islands. Many island species and subspecies are at risk, some have already been lost. Ecology and Conservation of Owls includes sections on population ecology, distribution, habitat and diet, conservation and management, and voice structure and taxonomy. It contains a number of review chapters that bring together findings from a wide range of previous research, including recent developments in owl taxonomy and systematics, and studies of population limitation in northern hemisphere owls. The chapters in this book derive from papers presented at the Owls 2000 conference held in Canberra, Australia, which was third in a series of international meetings on owls.
