"'Taking pictures' explores the issues and pitfalls of filming across a cultural boundary - through interviews with Australian filmmakers and by sampling their powerful award-winning documentaries about PNG [Papua New Guinea] - including the 'Highlands trilogy', 'Trobriand cricket', 'The sharkcallers of Kontu', Cannibal tours' and 'Man without pigs'. It also covers the work of indigenous PNG filmmakers, and their own experience of making sense of film and culture. 'Taking pictures' is an inquiry into the practicalities, politics and aesthestics of the documentary experience"--Container inlay

The sun by L Golub( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essential for life on earth and a major influence on our environment, the Sun is also the most fascinating object in the daytime sky. Every day we feel the effect of its coming and going--literally the difference between day and night. But figuring out what the Sun is, what it's made of, why it glows so brightly, how old it is, how long it will last--all of these take thought and observation. Leon Golub and Jay M. Pasachoff offer an engaging and informative account of what scientists know about the Sun, and the history of these discoveries. Solar astronomers have studied the Sun over the centuries both for its intrinsic interest and in order to use it as a laboratory to reveal the secrets of other stars
Refrigerator : the story of cool in the kitchen by Helen Peavitt( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From a late-night snack to a cold beer, there's nothing that whets the appetite quite like the suctioning sound of a refrigerator being opened. In the early 1930s fewer than ten percent of US households had a mechanical refrigerator, but today they are nearly universal, the primary means by which we keep our food and drink fresh. Yet, for as ubiquitous as refrigerators are, most of us take them for granted, letting them blend into the background of our kitchens, basements, garages, and all the other places where they seem so perfectly convenient. In this book, Helen Peavitt amplifies the hum of the refrigerator in technological history, showing us just how it became such an essential appliance. Peavitt takes us to the early closets, cabinets, and boxes into which we first started packing ice and the various things we were trying to keep cool. From there she charts the development of mechanical and chemical technologies that have led to modern-day refrigeration on both industrial and domestic scales, showing how these technologies have created a completely new method of preserving and transporting perishable goods, having a profound impact on society from the nineteenth century and on. She explores the ways the marketing of refrigerators have expressed and influenced our notions of domestic life, and she looks at how refrigeration has altered the agriculture and food industries as well as our own appetites." --Publisher description
