The Japanese bombing raid on Darwin, on 19 February 1942, was the first wartime assault on Australian soil. The Japanese struck with the same carrier-borne force that devastated Pearl Harbor only ten weeks earlier. There was a difference: more bombs fell on Darwin, more civilians were killed, and more ships were sunk. The people of Darwin abandoned their town, leaving it to looters, a few anti-aircraft batteries, and a handful of dogged defenders with single-shot rifles. Yet the story has remained in the shadows. Drawing on long-hidden documents and first-person accounts, Grose tells what really happened. There was much to be proud of in Darwin that day: courage, mateship, determination and improvisation. But the dark side of the story involves looting, desertion and a calamitous failure of leadership. (1 of 2 available copies.). ISBN/ASIN: 9781741756432. Our Book No: 15138. $14 AUD.

London: Fourth Estate. 164 pp. Paperback trade, good plus condition, front cover creased, few page corners faintly creased, pages faintly toned as usual, minor edgewear. An invigorating book about the debates raging within China. We know that China has brought 300 million people from agricultural backwardness into modernity in just 30 years (something that took 200 years in Europe). It has become so integrated into the global economy that its prospects have immediate effects on our everyday lives: simultaneously doubling the cost of the London Olympics while halving the cost of our computers, and keeping the US economy afloat but sinking the Italian footwear industry. Because China s rise - like the fall of Rome or the British Raj - will echo down generations to come, these are the questions we increasingly need to ask. Mark Leonard asks us to forget everything we thought we knew about China and start again. He introduces us to the thinkers that are shaping China's wide open future and opens up a hidden world of intellectual debate that is driving a new Chinese revolution and changing the face of the world.

New Delhi: Manohar. 310 pp. Hardback small octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket), pictorial cover, tables, minor edgewear. Deccan like the rest of British India had all the social economic and material ingredients for proliferation of epidemic diseases. Its population lived in unsanitary conditions, consumed contaminated water, and was crowded into wretched houses: extreme poverty, sunk in debt, and suffering from serious food shortage and malnutrition. The existence of mass poverty and its denial by the colonial state made the situation worse. This book argues that the reason for dysentery diarrhoea and bowel complaints was really malnutrition undernourishment and the general poverty of the masses. Even though the diseases were associated with poverty and malnutrition, the British imperial medical establishment continued to blindly adhere to its non-contagion miasmatic ideology. When the imperial state created hundreds of miles of roads and railways, diseases like cholera malaria, smallpox and plague proliferated everywhere. ISBN/ASIN: 8173043140.
