Paved with good intentions : terra nullius, Aboriginal land rights and settler-colonial law by Hannah Robert( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a century before Mabo and generations before 'Terra Nullius, Aboriginal land rights were briefly acknowledged by the early colonists of South Australia and Victoria. The way to Hell is paved with good intentions. Lust for land snuffed out hopes for a fair go, as the original owners of the land were pushed to the margins. This book looks at the way colonists exploited humanitarian rhetoric developed by Englands anti-slavery movement, to oust Aboriginal claims; how they reinvented the Common Law of property to secure their own title, twisting legal analysis and economic theory to suit their aims. It also explores the interactions between colonists and governments in Hobart, Sydney and London. Unlike many writers on the early colonial period, Hannah Robert takes full account of legal and bureaucratic sources. The book also has some interesting illustrations
Mothermorphosis : Australia's best storytellers write about becoming a mother by Monica Dux( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Mothermorphosis, some of Australia's most talented writers and storytellers share their own experiences of motherhood. In telling their stories they articulate the complex internal conflicts, the exhilaration and the absurdity of the transformation that takes place when we become mothers. We read about the yearning for a child, the private and public expressions of maternal love, the questioning, uncertainty and unexpected delight, as well as unfathomable loss. Mothermorphosis reveals that there is no 'right' version of this epic experience and no single tale that could ever speak for all mothers. Yet it is in reading about other women's experiences the hard bits, the joyous bits and even the ridiculous bits that we can become more compassionate, not just to other mothers but hopefully to ourselves. Mothermorphosis includes writing from: Kate Holden, Kathy Lette, Lorelei Vashti, Rebecca Huntley, George McEnroe, Fatima Measham, Jo Case, Hilary Harper, Cordelia Fine, Jane Caro, Hannah Robert, Susan Carland, Kerri Sackville, Catherine Deveny, Lee Kofman and Dee Madigan."--Publisher's website
