In December 2002, The Fabrication of Aboriginal History, Volume One by Keith Windschuttle was published. It argued that violence between whites and Aborigines in colonial Tasmania had been vastly exaggerated and sought to rewrite one of the most troubling parts of Australian history. The book soon attracted widespread coverage, including both high praise and heated critcism. Until now, Windschuttle's arguments have not been comprehensively examined. Whitewash collects some of Australia's leading writers on Aboriginal history to do just this. The result provides not only a demolition of Windschuttle's revisionism but also a vivid and illuminating history of one of the most famous and tragic episodes in the history of the British Empire - the dispossession of the Tasmanian Aborigines. Contributors include: James Boyce, Martin Krygier, Robert van Krieken, Henry Reynolds, Shayne Breen, Marilyn Lake, Greg Lehman, Neville Green, Cathie Clement, Peggy Patrick, Phillip Tardif, David Hansen, Lyndall Ryan, Cassandra Pybus, Ian McFarlane, Mark Finnane, Tim Murray, Christine Williamson, A. Dirk Moses and Robert Manne.

It's the pesticide on our dinner plates, a chemical so pervasive it's in the air we breathe, our water, our soil, and even found increasingly in our own bodies. Known as Monsanto's Roundup by consumers, and as glyphosate by scientists, the world's mpopular weed killer is used everywhere from backyard gardens to golf courses to millions of acres of farmland. For decades it's been touted as safe enough to drink, but a growing body of evidence indicates just the opposite, with research tying the chemical to cancers and a hof other health threats. In Whitewash, veteran journalist Carey Gillam uncovers one of the mcontroversial stories in the history of food and agriculture, exposing new evidence of corporate influence. Gillam introduces readers to farm families devastated by cancers which they believe are caused by the chemical, and to scientists whose reputations have been smeared for publishing research that contradicted business interests. Readers learn about the arm-twisting of regulators who signed off on the chemical, echoing company assurances of safety even as they permitted higher residues of the pesticide in food and skipped compliance tests. And, in startling detail, Gillam reveals secret industry communications that pull back the curtain on corporate efforts to manipulate public perception. Whitewash is more than an exposé about the hazards of one chemical or even the influence of one company. It's a storyof power, politics, and the deadly consequences of putting corporate interests ahead of public safety.

Praise for "Whitewash" "F***ing Brilliant"-The Estate of Euan O'Dell "How does Blair do it? Everyone in this town talks to Erik Blair, because if you don't, you're screwed."-Paris Biddle Blumenthal "Blair's paroxysms of outrage at being a victim of deception speak for all of us who thought we knew what we knew when we knew it. And his unparalleled gift for the intimate anecdote reveals an inner Washington we all should have seen coming a long time ago"-Frank Arouet "A disarming account which reveals the salient fact of modern political life: the perpetual war between honesty and loyalty. Whitewash" should awaken us from our dogmatic slumbers"-Samantha Franken Butler When Erik Blair took in a homeless woman, injured by the roadside, he could not possibly have imagined the staggering rise to fame and power that the future held for her. Nor could he have known that she was hiding a secret life. The CIA, the President, and his staff most certainly could discern her true identity, though, if only they would dare to look. But is there anyone willing to pay the price of honor ?

By putting the language used in television, the radio, the internet and press, as well as that spoken by key leaders, under the spotlight, what is ultimately revealed is the existence of a 'white' language, both coded and overt. Taking specific examples and presenting new factual evidence, John Gabriel studies the racial politics that lie behind much of the communication in the public arena. Case studies draw on contemporary political controversies and are used to explore the relationship between racialised forms of media discourse and political and economic change.

In 1935, a series of bizarre and heinous crimes gripped the American Southwest in fear. From New Mexico to the far reaches of the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation, a string of kidnappings, robberies, and violence has targeted Catholic missionaries and more. In a bold effort to stop the nightmare, the chief of tribal police is paired with an undercover FBI agent. They start at a missionary boarding school, but with each new question, increasingly alarming answers expand the scope of their investigation further than either ever imagined. Now, an Apache family must battle a massive international conspiracy involving the Catholic Church, the Vatican, and the United States government. Victims and families become allies. The superintendent of Indian Affairs and the clergy become enemies. Deeply steeped in the culture and mystique of the ndee—the Apache people—the secrets that wait in the shadows will inspire these experienced agents to do whatever it takes to solve this case—at any cost. As new information surfaces, the only fact to trust is no one can be trusted.
