A series of stunning images from sunrise to sunset that capture the vibrancy, uniqueness and culture of Australia. An intimate portrait of Australia, looking at the people and activities that give it its personality.
This collection of essays, first published in 2000, was the first systematic attempt to explain the social, administrative, technical and cultural history of 'European' housing in Australia. Written by a collaborative team of scholars from a wide range of disciplines, it explains how Australian housing has evolved from the ideas brought by the first settlers, and what makes Australian housing distinctive in social terms. This book covers a broad range of topics including the ways in which houses reflect social values and aspirations, the relationship between houses and gardens, the home as a site of domestic production and consumption, and an exploration of how housing provides the basis for developing a sense of community. The book will be invaluable for students of urban affairs and those engaged in housing and the design professions, as well as policy-makers and analysts in the public and private sectors.
Carl Portman, tarantula expert from the West Midlands travels to Queensland with two Sheilas in search of spiders and adventure. He finds both in this engaging and oddly heartwarming book. A must for anyone interested in the natural world. A glorious mix of arachnology and adventure, with a smattering of silly humour. Not to be missed!
