3. QE53 That Sinking Feeling: Asylum Seekers and the Search for the Indonesian Solution (Large Print 16pt) - Paul Toohey

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In the first Quarterly Essay of 2014, Paul Toohey searches for the solution our politicians have been unwilling or unable to find, and asks whether, amid the diplomatic turmoil, we've now missed our chance. Tony Abbott promised to stop the boats. With the help of Kevin Rudd's ''PNG solution'', he has. But at what cost? Visiting the Indonesian departure points, Toohey tells the dramatic stories of asylum seekers heading from Java to Australia, investigates people - smuggling and witnesses the aftermath of a sinking at sea. He examines the individual policies and outcomes of the Howard, Rudd, Gillard and now Abbott governments. He also interrogates Australian attitudes to boat people, and what politicians have made of these. This engaging, powerful essay provides the untold personal stories of those waiting to make the dangerous journey, and the long view of this fraught issue. That Sinking Feeling is an unflinching look at people at their worst and best - and most ruthless and most vulnerable - by one of Australia's finest reporters. ''Any hope for a genuine regional solution rested with Indonesia, the final stepping stone to Australia ... Why did neither Howard, in his better times with Indonesia, or Labor, from 2007, seek a one - on - one solution with Indonesia? 'The Indonesian Solution.' Those words would have been the most convincing political statement any Australian government could ever deliver to Australian voters on asylum seekers.'' - Paul Toohey, That Sinking Feeling

5. Quarterly Essay 48 After the Future Australia's New Extinction Crisis (Large Print 16pt) - Tim Flannery

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Australia is home to many animals and plants found nowhere else on earth, making Australians caretakers of a unique heritage in a land that tolerates few mistakes. Yet, in After the Future, Tim Flannery shows that this country is now on the brink of a new wave of extinctions, which threatens to leave our national parks as ''marsupial ghost towns.'' Why are species becoming extinct despite the tens of millions of dollars being spent to protect nature? And what more should be done? In this passionate and illuminating essay, Flannery tells the story of the human impact on the continent. He revisits his Future Eaters hypothesis, discussing how firestick farming helped to shape the ecology and preserve native fauna. He looks at the way recent governments, in tandem with an indifferent populace and a rabid libertarian right, have let environmental knowledge and commitments erode. Finally, he describes new approaches to wildlife conservation and argues that Australia must take the lead on these. This is an essay that rings the alarm on behalf of the natural world, and asks us to think again about protection of its irreplaceable riches. ''Such is the depth of public ignorance about Australia's extinction crisis that most people are unaware that it is occurring, while those who do know of it commonly believe that our national parks and reserves are safe places for threatened species. In fact the second extinction wave is now in full swing, and it's emptying our national parks and wildlife reserves as ruthlessly as other landscapes.'' - Tim Flannery, After the Future

11. Quarterly Essay 47 Political Animal The Making of Tony Abbott (Large Print 16pt) - David Marr

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Tony Abbott is the most successful Opposition leader of the last forty years, but he has never been popular. Now Australians want to know: what kind of man is he, and how would he perform as prime minister? In this dramatic portrait, David Marr shows that as a young Catholic warrior at university, Abbott was already a brutally effective politician. He later led the way in defeating the republic and, as the self - proclaimed 'political love child' of John Howard, rose rapidly in the Liberal Party. His reputation as a head - kicker and hard - liner made him an unlikely leader, but when the time came, his opposition to the emissions trading scheme proved decisive. Marr shows that Abbott thrives on chaos and conflict. Part fighter and part charmer, he is deeply religious and deeply political. What happens, then, when his values clash with his need to win? This is the great puzzle of his career, but the closer he is to taking power, the more guarded he has become. 'Since witnessing the Hewson catastrophe at first hand, Abbott has worn a mask. He has grown and changed. Life and politics have taught him a great deal. But how this has shaped the fundamental Abbott is carefully obscured. What has been abandoned? What is merely hidden on the road to power? What makes people so uneasy about Abbott is the sense that he is biding his time, that there is a very hard operator somewhere behind that mask, waiting for power.' David Marr, Political Animal

Written with wit, verve and heart, Queen Bees is the story of a form of societal revolution and the extraordinary women who helped it happen.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Why are Australians are so disenchanted and angry when it comes to politics? Given how well the country is going, by all rights we should be delighted with our political leadership. And yet we're not. In Quarterly Essay 46, Laura Tingle argues that something deep in the culture now amplifies antagonism and complaint. By turns we rail at the prime minister, whinge about minority government, and act as if the mining and carbon taxes will be the end of the world. When we were prosperous in times past, we did things like form a federation. What has changed? What would a different politics look like? And, Tingle asks, can a leader surf the wave of anger all the way to power?
