Between 1940 and 1944 in German-occupied France, the previously disregarded documentary or "film de complement" took on a new and more prominent role for cinema audiences. Film programmes were obliged for the first time to show documentaries as well as the main feature. Vichy Government support and encouragement made documentary a vehicle for the palatable promotion of policy whilst ostensibly appearing neutral and didactic. Key to this task was the fostering of a climate in which documentary film could be appreciated in its own right, and so it was that special series of high quality documentaries were screened first in Paris and then across France. In 1943 a Government-sponsored Documentary Film Congress acknowledged that these screenings were - au service de la France et du Marechal -. This book relates the films to their historical context with reference to other propaganda materials of the period, to indicate how this might have been achieved."

This book is one of a series on Constitutions of the world. The series is a bold experiment in presenting constitutional systems in context, so as to give those outside each system access to an insider's view on it in a way that reveals features that are not generally expressed although typically are assumed. Consistently with the aims of the series, the book canvasses the Australian constitutional system in a way that explains its form and operation, provides a critical evaluation of it and conveys a sense of the contemporary national debate. The chapters deal respectively with the foundations of Australian constitutionalism, its history from the time of European settlement, the nature of the Australian Constitutions, the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government, federalism and multi-level government, rights protection and prospects for future change. Running through all the chapters is the story of the gradual evolution of Australian constitutionalism within the lean but almost unchanging framework of the formal, written, national Constitution. A second theme traces the way in which the present, distinctive, constitutional arrangements in Australia emerged from creative tension between the British and United States constitutional traditions on which the Australian Constitution originally drew and which continues to manifest itself in various ways. The book is written in a clear and accessible style for informed but non-specialist readers in countries around the world. Each chapter is followed by additional references to enable particular issues to be pursued further by readers who seek to do so.

Though most church leaders crave authenticity in their congregations, most also know it is an elusive goal. People by nature are self-protective. And although the gospel message that we are all sinners saved by grace ought to make people more real, the truth is many of our churches are plagued by fakeness. This inauthenticity hinders spiritual and emotional health and maturity. So what’s a church leader to do?The key, says Elaine Hamilton, is to go beyond talking about doing things differently. We have to act and live differently. It begins with leaders; the people will follow. We need to tell the truth about who we really are, and then provide forums for others to do the same. Church on the Couch helps you take practical steps toward changing the culture of your church. As the masks come off, the healing and growth will begin.
