Nick Hayes

The Book of Trespass takes us on a journey over the walls of England, into the thousands of square miles of rivers, woodland, lakes and meadows that are blocked from public access.

Weaving together the stories of poachers, vagabonds, gypsies, witches, hippies, ravers, ramblers, migrants and protestors, and charting acts of civil disobedience that challenge orthodox power at its heart, The Book of Trespass will transform the way you see the land.

Mark McKenna

Return to Uluru brings a cold case to life. It speaks directly to the Black Lives Matter movement, but is completely Australian. Recalling Chloe Hooper's The Tall Man, it is superbly written, moving, and full of astonishing, unexpected twists. Ultimately it is a story of recognition and return, which goes to the very heart of the country. At the centre of it all is Uluru, the sacred site where paths fatefully converged. 'I feel sure that it will become an Australian classic, not the first of its kind, but certainly the most powerful narrative I have read of frontier injustice and its resonance in our lives today.'-Marcia Langton.

Rosie Ayliffe

British mother Rosie Ayliffe thought her 21-year-old daughter, Mia, would be safe travelling around Australia on a gap year. But Mia wanted to extend her visa and in order to do that needed to find 88 days of work on a farm -- a requirement that would lead to catastrophic events. Four short days after Mia moved to a hostel in Queensland to take a job on a sugarcane farm, she was brutally killed. Faced with every parent's worst nightmare, Rosie travelled to Australia to retrieve Mia's body. From the moment she landed, however, she started to hear stories about the terrible treatment of young workers like Mia -- stories of exploitation, sexual harassment, rape. Her death was traumatic and life-changing. In Rosie's memoir, she describes movingly how she has found the strength to come to terms with devastating loss, drawing on inspiration from her daughter's short life. She also explains how she has become the driving force behind an international campaign to press for change to the 88 days system.

Good economics for hard times

Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo

In this revolutionary book, prize-winning economists Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo show how economics, when done right, can help us solve the thorniest social and political problems of our day. From immigration to inequality, slowing growth to accelerating climate change, we have the resources to address the challenges we face but we are so often blinded by ideology. Original, provocative and urgent, Good Economics for Hard Times offers the new thinking that we need. It builds on cutting-edge research in economics - and years of exploring the most effective solutions to alleviate extreme poverty - to make a persuasive case for an intelligent interventionism and a society built on compassion and respect. A much-needed antidote to polarized discourse, this book shines a light to help us appreciate and understand our precariously balanced world.

Twenty years ago Geoffrey Robertson inspired the global justice movement with his ground-breaking book, Crimes Against Humanity. Since then, the movement has stalled, as nationalism takes hold and populist governments retreat from international courts and refuse to comply with their rulings. But there is an alternative. The Plan B for human rights looks back to national laws to name, blame and shame abusers. These abuses are a concern for all human beings, and good people are no longer prepared to tolerate them, in their own country or elsewhere in the world. The Magnitsky laws can show the way forward for the global justice movement in the twenty-first century.

Clarrie Briese

This is a remarkable account of corruption in the courts in the 1980s and how it was thwarted and finally exposed by the testimony of Clarrie Briese, NSW Chief Magistrate, supported by that of District Court Judge Paul Flannery. Briese provides a detailed analysis of how High Court Justice Lionel Murphy and District Court Judge John Foord approached him and Flannery with a view to perverting the course of justice in relation to criminal charges against Murphy's friend, solicitor Morgan Ryan. His stance has never wavered, despite vigorous attacks by people in their public defence of Murphy, such as NSW Premier Wran and Malcolm Turnbull. This account reveals fresh evidence which shows that the tentacles of corruption extended to the very top, reaching Wran himself.

Raising Free People

Akilah S Richards and Adebayo C Akomolafe

This book explores examples of the transition from school or homeschooling to unschooling, how single parents and people facing financial challenges unschool successfully, and the ways unschooling allows us to address generational trauma and unlearn the habits we mindlessly pass on to children.

The Psychopath: A True Story

Mary Turner Thomson

In 2006, Mary Turner Thomson's world shattered when she discovered her husband Will was a bigamist, con man and convicted sex offender. Unbeknownst to her, this would be the start of a bold new chapter in her life, fighting to protect other women from his heartless gaslighting campaigns -- and putting a stop to his endless deception.

We all want to be healthy, live longer and avoid cancer, but too many of us are being scammed by sciencey-sounding crooks and nonsense marketing. Dr Brad McKay, GP and experienced Australian science communicator, has watched how misinformation and 'alternative facts' have come to permeate every facet of our lives, causing many of us to turn away from academic expertise and instead look to social media influencers and dodgy websites to guide our health choices. Fake Medicine looks at the danger of Wellness Warriors, conspiracy theories and vaccine deniers, supplements and fad diets, alternative practitioners and the power of positive thinking, and interrogates the marketing that leads consumers toward dubious products and practices. In the wash of celebrity influencers and miracle cures, this is the essential book to debunk the faux-science and scam marketing of the modern health landscape.

Matthew Harffy

While his fellow monks flee before the Norse onslaught, one young novice stands his ground. He has been taught to turn the other cheek, but faced with the slaughter of his brothers and the pagan desecration of his church, forgiveness is impossible. Hunlaf soon learns that there is a time for faith and prayer ... and there is a time for swords

It should have been precious time as a family, with board games, walks in the mountain and pancakes for breakfast. Instead my little one is has vanished. 'They are looking for him,' the nurse told me, 'but the storm is slowing down the search.' The police think Theo has the answers, that he knows what tore our family apart. But I have no idea where he is. No clue if he is safe. I won't survive unless I bring him home. But if I do, and the truth comes out, will I survive that?"

Like most crows, Arlo has a big brain. But Arlo has something else: a little pal who's not afraid to tell him when he's being insufferable! In the first of three episodes, a battle of the brains and bird-to-bird banter soon turns into an unexpected friendship. Arlo and Pips' adventures include a visit the big city and the beach on their hunt for shiny things and French fries. Cool crow facts are included throughout the book.

An expert in untangling the motives of depraved minds, forensic psychologist and single mother Ann Bailey joins forces with Montana Highway Patrol officer Bryce McCabe to help solve the mystery of two murdered women doused with gasoline and set aflame. She is reminded of Elijah Weston, who served a decade in prison for arson-- and whose crimes nearly cost Ann her life. One of the victims has been identified as an obsessed Elijah groupie. And ever since Ann returned to town, Elijah can't take his eyes off her. As a mother with a secret, she's the perfect victim for an infatuated psychopath
