12. The Good the Bad & the Unlikely Australia's Prime Ministers (Large Print 16pt) - Mungo MacCallum

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Good drinkers, bad swimmers and unlikely heroes. Since Australia's birth in 1901, twenty - seven politicians have run the national show. Their time at the top has ranged from eight days for Frank Forde to eighteen years for Bob Menzies. But whatever the length of their term, each Prime Minister has a story worth sharing. Edmund Barton united the bickering states in a federation; Billy Hughes forced US President Woodrow Wilson to take notice of Australia. The unlucky Jimmy Scullin took office days before Wall Street crashed into the Great Depression, while John Curtin faced the ultimate challenge of wartime leadership. John Gorton, Gough Whitlam and Paul Keating each shook up their parties' policies so vigorously that none lasted much longer than a single term in office. With characteristic wit and expert knowledge, Mungo MacCallum brings the nation's leaders to vivid life. The Good, the Bad and the Unlikely tells the tale of the many men and one woman who've had a crack at running the country. It is a wonderfully entertaining education. 'The most informative and entertaining book about Australian politics since Don Watson's Recollection of a Bleeding Heart.' The Sydney Morning Herald 'Vintage Mungo.' The Australian.

The Vancouver International Ballet Academy has opened its doors after the winter break, and everyone is back!

Alexandra is as focused as usual, but others don't seem to understand how much time and energy she has to give to ballet if she wants to be the best. While Taylor is still criticized at VIBA, she's getting a lot of positive attention from outside - especially from a recently retired Canadian ballerina who's taken an interest in her and Julian. Who will get noticed in competition and the spring seminar? Whatever happens, someone's going to lose and someone's going to win.

14. Abortion Conscience & Democracy (Large Print 16pt) - Mark R. Macguigan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Few issues have polarized Canadians and Americans as much as the abortion debate. In this thoughtful and thought - provoking reflection on the implications the law on abortion has on democracy, Mark MacGuigan brings a much - needed perspective to this controversial subject. Few people are as well qualified to do so: MacGuigan is a former law professor, minister of justice and attorney general of Canada, a Catholic, and a federal appellate - court judge.Distinguishing carefully between morality and the law, MacGuigan includes a history of the criminal law, the Catholic Church's views, and the often - ignored roles of individual conscience, freedom and responsibility in democracy. He reviews the essential debate, important case histories, and the evolving social perspectives that have attached themselves to discussions of abortion. He also includes chapters on the related issues of contraception and euthanasia. MacGuigan refers to a wide range of influential and international documents and judgements: papal encyclicals, the Wolfenden Report, Roe vs. Wade, a ruling in a case that involved Dr. Henry Morgentaler, and numerous other sources. With great candour, MacGuigan also explores how his own attitude and position have changed to the point where he now opposes any legislation limiting abortion before viability. Those who are seeking clarity of the issues and those who want to uncloud the rhetoric and the arguments should not miss reading this important work.
