Haward & Griffiths
The Antarctic Treaty, which is at the heart of the regime that covers the vast region of sea and land surrounding the South Pole, has been in force for 50 years. Australia and the Antarctic Treaty System examines Australia’s crucial contribution, past and present, within the system of cooperative governance established by the Antarctic Treaty. The Antarctic Treaty System has been a notably successful international collaboration that has fostered scientific discovery, environmental protection and most of all peace, while enabling national interest and endeavour.
Lehmann & Gray
A good poem is one that the world can’t forget or is delighted to rediscover. This landmark anthology of Australian poetry, edited by two of Australia’s foremost poets, Geoffrey Lehmann and Robert Gray, contains such poems. It is the first of its kind for Australia and promises to become a classic. Included here are Australia’s major poets, and lesser-known but equally affecting ones, and all manifestations of Australian poetry since 1788, from concrete poems to prose poems, from the cerebral to the nave, from the humorous to the confessional, and from formal to free verse.
