But hand-in-hand with the remote beauty of the region went a series of tragic events in the 19th century. Shipwrecks, murders, attacks by the Aboriginal inhabitants on the white explorers and settlers, and attacks by white colonists on the Aborigines also made the Coorong one of the most violent regions of the South Australian colony. Drawing mostly on original sources, provides an insight into the sometimes harsh and desperate conditions faced by the Europeans attempting to populate "that lonely shore", and the inevitable conflicts with the original inhabitants.

London: Earthscan Publications. 185 pp. Hardback octavo, no jacket as issued, pictorial cover, as new condition. Explores how uncertainty is interpreted and used by policy makers, experts and politicians. It argues that conventional notions of rational, evidence-based policy making - hailed by governments and organisations across the world as the only way to make good policy - is impossible in highly complex and uncertain environments. The blind pursuit of such a rational goal is in fact irrational in a world of competing values and interests. Based on two high-profile case studies: the Iraq War, and climate change policy in the US, UK and Australia. Based on three years' research - including interviews with experts such as Hans Blix, Paul Pillar and Brian Jones. Both case studies show that treatment of uncertainty issues in specialist advice is often determined by how well the advice fits with or contradicts the policy goals and orientation of the politicians. One should not allow the debate to be side-tracked by arguments over whose expert advice is "more right". We must accept that uncertainty in complex issues is unavoidable, and recognise the values and interests that lie at the heart of the issues. Offers a hedging approach; this enables policy makers to manage rather than eliminate uncertainty. ISBN: 9781849710831. Our Book No: 14256. $40 AUD.

This wonderful book explores the bay's special wildlife and the unique and colourful town of Broome alongside it - its massive tides, monsoonal climate, pearling history and special Aboriginal heritage. Roebuck Bay is one of only a dozen or so areas in the world with huge intertidal flats rich in shorebirds, including many from as far afield as Siberia. It lies on the receiving end of the most species-rich of all shorebird flyways, and these shorebirds end up in the most biodiverse marine province in the world. ISBN: 0730755401.

The Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland consists of 2000 kilometres of spectacular coral reefs, sand cays and islands.
