The Grammar is divided into two parts. Part A covers traditional grammatical categories such as agreement, nouns, verbs and adjectives. Part B is carefully organized around language functions covering all major communication situations such as establishing identity, making contact and expressing likes, dislikes and preferences.
With a strong emphasis on contemporary usage, all grammar points and functions are richly illustrated with examples. Building on the success of the first edition, this second edition also includes:
• An introduction to the history and current status of Brazilian Portuguese
• Notes for Spanish speakers pointing out the main grammatical differences between the two languages
• Additional explanation and exemplification of areas of particular difficulty for learners.
A combination of reference grammar and practical usage manual, Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar is the ideal source for learners of Brazilian Portuguese at all levels, from beginner to advanced.
The book is divided into two sections:
• Part A provides exercises based on essential grammatical structures
• Part B practises everyday functions (e.g. making social contact, asking questions and expressing needs).
A comprehensive answer key at the back of the book enables you to check on your progress.
The Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar Workbook is ideal for all learners who have a basic knowledge of Brazilian Portuguese, including undergraduates taking Brazilian Portuguese as a major or minor part of their studies, as well as intermediate and advanced school, adult education and self-study students. While primarily intended for use in conjunction with Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar: A Practical Guide, it can also serve as an independent resource.
In this vastly entertaining book, Mungo MacCallum captures the spirit of a nation-changing time. He portrays the Whitlam government’s key figures – from Gough and Margaret to Lionel Murphy, Bill Hayden and Jim Cairns – as well as “the other mob” in opposition – Billy McMahon, John Gorton, Malcolm Fraser and many more.
The Whitlam Mob addresses some crucial questions: What was the night of the long prawns? Who was the playboy of the parliament? And who was “the toe-cutter”?
This is Mungo at his best: vivid and barbed, nostalgic but always clear-eyed.
Superbly edited and introduced by Tim Flannery, this is a classic tale by a brilliant observer of the savagery and tenderness of life when the modern age was in its infancy.
John Nicol was born in Scotland in 1755, and first went to sea in 1776. He served in the American War of Independence, and later sailed to Greenland, the West Indies, the South Pacific, China and the colony of New South Wales. He lived with the convict Sarah Whitlam in Port Jackson in 1790 after their son was born on the voyage to Australia. Later he served in the French Revolutionary Wars in Egypt and the Mediterranean, until he settled in Scotland in 1801. He died in 1825.
Tim Flannery is a bestselling writer, scientist and explorer. He has published over a dozen books, most recently Among the Islands: Adventures in the Pacific. In 2011 he was appointed chief commissioner of the Australian Climate Commission.
'The unaffected remembrances of an 18th-century mariner, eerie in their ability to make readers feel contiguous with the events...This is a remarkable memoir...Nicol had an eye and ear for the background music of the everyday, of language...an immediacy rings in the account, pulling you in...[a] lucky find for treasure hunters who discovered a gem worth far more than its weight in gold doubloons.' Kirkus Reviews
'A rare treat...fresh, unstudied and spectacularly observant, it ranks with many of the better known classics...The result is a charming account of the world seen through the eyes of a kindly and thoughtful man with a great capacity for empathy, a tremendous eye for detail and, apparently, a spectacular memory...The world he travelled was so terribly interesting, foreign and strange and yet in some ways familiar, poised on the brink of modernity, as we are now poised on the brink of something else...And the stroke of genius was to secure Tim Flannery, author of the best-selling book on Australia's ecological history, The Future Eaters, as the series editor. Rapidly becoming Australia's answer to Stephen Jay Gould, Flannery is a scientist who writes like a historian and has a historian's passion for these early texts...Flannery brings a contagious enthusiasm to everything he does.' Sunday Age
'This remarkable little book defies the normal course of historical writing and gives us a uniquely personal view of the world as seen from the focsle in the late 18th century...Tim Flannery is to be congratulated for having the eye to breathe life back into a person whose story engages readers today as much as when it was first written.' Sydney Morning Herald
'It's a knockout...Nicol is a sunny, charming, highly observant guide and a first-rate storyteller.' Sun Herald
'It is tales such as these that suddenly transport you back in time...For anyone with a passing interest in history, or those who just like a good story, you can't go past Nicol. It's going to be one of those books that everyone reads once - and then buys five copies to give to friends.' Herald Sun
'Sometimes a voice comes out of nowhere and - like the wedding guest - you are stopped in your tracks by the tale of an ancient mariner...Terrific.' The Times
One of Europe’s most important literary figures, Jonathan Swift was also an inspired humorist, a beloved companion, and a conscientious Anglican minister—as well as a hoaxer and a teller of tales. His anger against abuses of power would produce the most famous satires of the English language: Gulliver’s Travels as well as the Drapier Papers and the unparalleled Modest Proposal, in which he imagined the poor of Ireland farming their infants for the tables of wealthy colonists.
John Stubbs’s biography captures the dirt and beauty of a world that Swift both scorned and sought to amend. It follows Swift through his many battles, for and against authority, and in his many contradictions, as a priest who sought to uphold the dogma of his church; as a man who was quite prepared to defy convention, not least in his unshakable attachment to an unmarried woman, his “Stella”; and as a writer whose vision showed that no single creed holds all the answers.
Impeccably researched and beautifully told, in Jonathan Swift Stubbs has found the perfect subject for this masterfully told biography of a reluctant rebel—a voice of withering disenchantment unrivaled in English.
So who was the man behind the phenomenal success of the Kevin07 campaign? This Mandarin-speaking professional diplomat, committed Christian and self-described policy wonk, who grew up as the son of a dairy farmer in rural Queensland to become the 26th prime minister of Australia?
While journalists, the professional commentariat and Rudd's political foes have together felled forests writing about the 'real' Kevin Rudd, until now he has refused to provide any written response to his many critics. That changes with this volume, which takes us to his election as prime minister in 2007. This is the first time we hear from the man himself, in his own words, about what makes him tick.
With a level of self-reflection, and a capacity for sending himself up that is rarely seen in political autobiography, Rudd chronicles a childhood shaped by the love of his mother and tragically disrupted by the death of his father when he was eleven - an event that left the family without a home or an income, and which would foster in him a visceral passion for social justice, and the foundations of his own political vision.
He tells of his years as a budding China scholar, his many misadventures as a young diplomat in Stockholm and Beijing, his marriage to the remarkable Thérèse Rein and the centrality of his tight-knit family to both his private and public lives. He takes us through his years as Queensland's most powerful public servant during the days of the Goss government, and the soul-destroying moment of losing his first election to Federal Parliament in 1996, before finally prevailing through the maze of Labor factional politics to win his seat in 1998.
Rudd's account of the next nine long years in Opposition lays bare the inner workings of our national politics, including the absurdities of the factional system, the essential nature of Australian conservatism, and the arrogance of the Howard government, culminating in Howard's two greatest follies: the decision to take Australia to war in Iraq, and the introduction of WorkChoices. He also describes the monumental task of wresting office from a conservative prime minister who tried every trick in the book to hold on to power.
Rudd also carefully chronicles the evolution of his own deepest beliefs, values and political convictions over many decades, long before his entry to Parliament. He describes his book as 'an essay in encouragement' for those considering a public life who are committed to changing the world for the many, not the few, but are uncertain if they have the stomach for it.
This is an optimistic book, written with passion, conviction and insight. It is the first in a two-volume autobiography. It covers the unlikely rise of the 'boy from Eumundi' to the most powerful office in the land.
When some army generals sought to overthrow Spain’s elected government, Francisco Franco quickly emerged as their leader; Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy supported him with men and materiel; pusillanimous politicians in Britain and the United States, even in France, turned a blind eye – and the Spanish Civil War was on. Edward VIII took a scandalous holiday cruise with Mrs Simpson, Berlin staged the greatest sporting event of modern times, the alternative Peoples’ Olympiad never came to be, and Barcelona was transformed into a unique workers’ paradise. All this in four weeks. It was an incongruous, at times brilliant, juxtaposition of events.
Bad decisions were made. Bad behaviour prevailed. Thousands died. Bad people won; not forever, but for a time. There is some joy in those four weeks that summer – much in fact, with Europe on holiday and Berlin en fête – four weeks, however, when it all went wrong.
Since Australia’s birth in 1901, twenty-eight politicians have run the national show. Their time at the top has ranged from eight days for Frank Forde to eighteen years for Bob Menzies. But whatever the length of their term, each Prime Minister has a story worth sharing.
Edmund Barton united the bickering states in a federation; Billy Hughes forced US President Woodrow Wilson to take notice of Australia. The unlucky Jimmy Scullin took office days before Wall Street crashed into the Great Depression, while John Curtin faced the ultimate challenge of wartime leadership. John Gorton, Gough Whitlam and Paul Keating each shook up their parties’ policies so vigorously that none lasted much longer than a single term in office. Julia Gillard overthrew Kevin Rudd and Kevin Rudd overthrew Julia Gillard, thus paving the way for Tony Abbott.
With characteristic wit and expert knowledge, Mungo MacCallum brings the nation’s leaders to vivid life. The Good, the Bad and the Unlikely tells the tale of the many men and one woman who’ve had a crack at running the country. It is a wonderfully entertaining education.
“This is the most informing and entertaining book about Australian politics since Don Watson’s Recollections of a Bleeding Heart.” – The Sydney Morning Herald
“The irrepressible Mungo MacCallum has for decades been one of our most entertaining political journalists. This breezy book is vintage Mungo.” – The Australian
“MacCallum captures the essence of each incumbent and his/her prime ministership brilliantly.” – The Courier Mail
“informative and entertaining.” – Inside Story
“This book is packed with all the charm, wit and expert knowledge readers have come to expect from MacCallum’s writing.” – Bookseller + Publisher
The Protest Years tells the inside story of Australia's domestic intelligence organisation from the last of the Menzies years to the dismissal of the Whitlam government. With unrestricted access to ASIO's internal filesand extensive interviews with insiders, for the first time the circumstances surrounding the alleged role of ASIO in the demise of the Whitlam government are revealed and the question of the CIA's involvement in Australia is explored. The extraordinary background to the raid on ASIO headquarters in Melbourne by Attorney-General Lionel Murphy and Australia's efforts at countering Soviet bloc espionage, as well as the sensitive intelligence activities in South Vietnam, are exposed.
This is a ground-breaking political and social history of some of Australia's most turbulent years as seen through the secret prism of ASIO.
The Protest Years is the second of three volumes of The Official History of ASIO.
'Engaging and revealing ... like a torchlight shone from an unexpected angle' Geoffrey Blainey, Weekend Australian
Fresh from the success of his phenomenal bestselling memoir, LAZARUS RISING, which has sold over 100,000 copies, John Howard now turns his attention to one of the most extraordinary periods in Australian history, the Menzies era, canvassing the longest unbroken period of government for one side of politics in Australia's history. The monumental Sir Robert Menzies held power for a total of over 18 years, making him the longest-serving Australian Prime Minister. During his second term as Prime Minister, a term of over sixteen years - by far the longest unbroken tenure in that office - Menzies dominated Australian politics like no one else has ever done before or since, and these years laid the foundations for modern Australia.
The Menzies era saw huge economic growth, social change and considerable political turmoil. Covering the impact of the great Labor split of 1955 as well as the recovery of the Labor Party under Whitlam's leadership in the late 1960s and the impact of the Vietnam War on Australian politics, this magisterial book offers a comprehensive assessment of the importance of the Menzies era in Australian life, history and politics. John Howard, only ten when Menzies rose to power, and in young adulthood when the Menzies era came to an end, saw Menzies as an inspiration and a role model. His unique insights and thoughtful analysis into Menzies the man, the politician, and his legacy make this a fascinating, highly significant book.
'This important book' Clive James, Times Literary Supplement
'The best biography written by an Australian; the best biography written about an Australian.' Sir Richard Kirby
For forty years Sir Garfield Barwick stood at the centre of power in Australia. He was an advocate who saved the private banks from Chifley and fought to destroy the Communist Party. He was the Attorney-General who reformed the divorce laws and the Foreign Minister who put Australian troops in Vietnam. He was the Chief Justice who broke down the tax laws, dramatically advanced the power of Canberra and gave Sir John Kerr the constitutional imprimatur to dismiss the Whitlam government.
Barwick is the portrait of a complex and driven man who began life in the Sydney slums, a man totally committed to the exercise of power and utterly certain of the rightness of his beliefs. It is also a remarkable insight into the inner workings of Australia's supreme legal institution.
Winner of the NSW Premier's Literary Award, Barwick is an Australian classic.
When it was suggested he was funny, Gough responded: 'Funny! Funny? Witty, yes. Epigrammatic perhaps, but not funny. You make me sound like a clown.'
James Carleton, Radio National presenter and founder of the university club 'The Dewy-Eyed Whitlamites', presents a keepsake of Goughisms that vindicates the Great Man's self-assessment, 'I never said I was immortal, merely eternal.'
From disastrous foreign forays to syphilitic poets, from political intrigues to ambitious young playwrights keen to curry favor with the king, John Stubbs brings alive the vibrant cast of characters that was at the center of the English Civil War.
In Reprobates, the acclaimed biographer John Stubbs finds his new subject in England’s turbulent decades of the mid-seventeenth century. With conflict between the monarchy and Parliament threatening to explode, a group of courtiers and army officers known as the Cavaliers emerged to defend the king. They were jeeringly labeled “Cavaliers”—then a term for a gallant or a rogue—by their opponents on the streets of London. Their movement was soon memorialized by poets such as Robert Herrick, whose poem “To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time”—which begins, “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may”—later became a carpe diem anthem for their lost cause. Often imagined as elegant gentlemen, chivalrous and dandified, the Cavaliers were also originally to be found in the form of the gambler and poet Sir John Suckling or his syphilitic friend William Davenant.
Stubbs sheds new light on this groundbreaking group of men, on their world and their journeys through it, in peace and war, from the Blackfriars Playhouse to the battlefields of King Charles’s kingdoms.
The Life and Adventures of John Nicol, Mariner is a recently rediscovered text that vividly renders the unforgettable story of a man whom history has nearly forgotten.
In his many voyages the Scottish-born sailor John Nicol twice circumnavigated the globe, visiting every inhabited continent while witnessing and participating in many of the greatest events of exploration and adventure in the eighteenth century. He traded with Native Americans on the St. Lawrence River and hunted whales in the Arctic Ocean. He fought for the British navy against American privateers in the Atlantic Ocean and Napoléon’s navy in the Mediterranean Sea. In Grenada he witnessed the horrors of the slave system and befriended slaves who invited him to join in their dance celebrations. In the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) he was entertained by the king’s court mere days after the murder of Captain James Cook. En route to Australia he would meet the love of his life, Sarah Whitlam, a convict bound for the Botany Bay prison colony, who would bear his son before duty forced them apart forever.
At the end of his journeys, John Nicol returned to his homeland and a life of obscurity and poverty, until the publisher John Howell met him one day while he was wandering the streets of Edinburgh, searching for dregs of coal to fuel his hearth. After hearing the fascinating stories of Nicol’s seafaring experiences, Howell convinced him to write his memoirs—the publication of which eventually earned Nicol enough money to live comfortably for the rest of his days.
An international bestseller, The Life and Adventures of John Nicol, Mariner is a rousing, eminently readable memoir of an ordinary man’s extraordinary life—a great, true-adventure tale. Celebrated scientist and historian Tim Flannery has edited Nicol’s original text, providing accompanying footnotes and an introduction (updated for this North American edition) that give historical context to the sailor’s exploits.
"Appeasing Jakarta is an analysis of what happened in 1975 when we condoned Indonesia's intervention and what happened in 1999 when we stood against it ...John Birmingham is deadly in his disdain for the way a defunct paradigm...was clung to like a dogma...but [this] is also an essay about the human cost...written in flowing colours with a strong narrative streak and a swashbuckling power of dispatch..." —Peter Craven, Introduction
"It was a policy of wilful blindness, made possible only because we were always somewhere else when the trigger was pulled." —John Birmingham, Appeasing Jakarta
Parliament lies at the heart of Australian life. From spy scandals to immigration quotas, from wars to domestic crises, from trade tariffs to stem cell research, the concerns of the nation are reflected in the speeches of its representatives.
Speaking for Australia offers a selection of the most memorable speeches given in the Australian parliament since Federation in 1901. Some of these speeches changed history, some mark a significant moment in Australian life, and others offer a very personal perspective. Many of Australia's most colourful political figures are represented: Billy Hughes, Arthur Calwell, Robert Menzies, John Gorton, Gough Whitlam and Pauline Hanson. Together, these speeches track the development of the nation: two world wars and other major international conflicts; the battle for rights for women and Aborigines; changing attitudes to immigration; the growth of economic planning; and the ever-shifting political landscape.
Speaking for Australia is a fascinating record of a century of Australian public life, and a treasure trove of quotes for speech makers, writers and students.

Until now, few would have known of the surprising extent of clandestine operations in Australia by foreign intelligence operatives and the violence-prone activities of local extremist groups from the Middle East, Armenia and Croatia in the 1970s and 1980s. Meanwhile, prompted by probing royal commissions and reviews, ASIO was being systematically transformed into a modern intelligence organisation.
The Secret Cold War uncovers behind the scenes stories of the Hilton bombing in Sydney, assassinations of diplomats, the Combe-Ivanov affair, and the new threat from China. It reveals that KGB officers were able to recruit and run agents in Australia for many years, and it follows ASIO's own investigations into persistent allegations of penetration by Soviet moles.
The Secret Cold War is the third and final volume of The Official History of ASIO.
'The Secret Cold War concludes the seminal trilogy of the Official History of ASIO, and provides an unabashed perspective into ASIO's inner workings throughout the 1970s and 1980s.' - His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia
The Manual reflects the language as it is currently taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels by providing detailed explanations of the sound and writing systems and the grammar of the principal Portuguese dialects. A reference guide rather than a textbook, the Manual also provides extensive verb charts, as well as comparisons of Portuguese with English and Spanish.
Australian diplomats in Jakarta and Canberra or Australian defence intelligence operatives? Senior ministers in the Whitlam government or senior public servants?
At first light on 16 October 1975, Indonesian special forces stormed the East Timor village of Balibo, killing five newsmen. A quarter of a century later, the fate of these unarmed civilians continues to nag at consciences in Britain, New Zealand and Australia.
Did highly-placed Australians secretly 'sign off' on Indonesia's plan to invade its neighbour? Did they know that the newsmen were targets? Did they choose to leave these young men to the mercy of the Indonesian Army?
In this book, a long-term analyst of Indonesian defence and foreign policy and a world-renowned expert on military intelligence uncover what Canberra has been hiding.
Here is a story that follows a trail of cover-ups and denials which reaches from Australia's capital to Jakarta... to five corpses in a small village in East Timor.
'A thoroughly researched indictment against successive Australian governments and the senior bureaucrats and intelligence elite of Australia, for connivance in the Indonesian invasion of East Timor and for a quarter century of cover up.'
--The Hon. Justice John Dowd AO, President, Australian Section, International Commission of Jurists
'This is an account of how the Australian secret intelligence community and pliant politicians conspired to suppress the truth about the murder of five TV journalists in Timor on 1975. Long overdue, convincing, restrained and truly shocking, it is a 'must read' for anyone concerned about the future of open government.'
-- Phillip Knightley, author of The First Casualty, a history of war correspondents.

호주의 국가원수는 영국여왕이다 : 결론적으로 호주의 국가원수는 호주총리가 아니라 영국여왕(Queen of Australia)이며, 호주의 행정권은 엄연히 영국여왕이 임명 및 파견한 연방총독(Governor-General)에게 있습니다. 총독은 어디까지나 형식적인 위치라구요? 호주의 웨스트민스터 법(Statute of Westminster Adoption Act 1942)은 엄연히 총독의 권한을 의례적인 역할 외에 행정권을 비롯한 국군통수권이라고 규정하고 있습니다. 호주 뿐 아니라 영연방 국가 전체를 통틀어 보더라도 드문 경우이기는 하나, 1975년 연방총독 John Kerr는 호주총리 Gough Whitlam를 해임한 바 있습니다.
트래버스 베이넌 : 호주 담배회사 Freechoice Tobacco의 상속자 트래버스 베이넌(Travers Beynon). 담배광고가 금지된 호주에서 그가 선택한 마케팅은 바로 SNS! 1년 365일 파티를 개최할 수 있는 호화로운 저택을 짓고, 셀러브리티를 초청할 뿐만 아니라 미녀군단과 동행하는 그의 일상(?)은 언론과 SNS를 통해 급속도로 퍼지고 있습니다. 모델과 풋볼 선수로 활약한 준수한 외모와 그의 럭셔리한 라이프는 대중들에게 강력하게 전달되고 있죠. 자신의 롤모델이 플레이보이 창업자 휴 헤프너라는 그의 인스타그램, 둘러보시지 않을 수 없겠죠?
네드 캘리 : 그는 빅토리아 주의 이주민 가정에서 태어난 그는 동생, 친구들과 켈리 갱(Kelly Gang)을 결성해 수년간 경찰과 대치하며 은행을 털었다. 1880년에야 비로소 체포되어 사형을 선고 받았는데 그 과정에서 ‘직접 제작한 수제 갑옷’을 선보이기도 했다. 비록 그가 경찰관을 살해하는 등의 악행을 저질렀으나, 가난한 이주민 가정에서 성장하면서 억울한 일도 적지 않게 겪었고, 은행에서 가난한 이들의 채권을 불태워 버리는 등 영국이란 지배계층과 의연하게 맞서 싸우는 장면을 연출하면서 현재까지도 ‘호주의 의적’으로 인정받고 있다.
앨버트 나마티라 : 호주에서 가장 성공한 원주민 예술가 앨버트 나마티라(Albert Namatjira)의 그림은 호주의 대자연을 주요 소재로 하나, 애보리진(Aborigine) 스타일이 아닌 일반적인 서양식의 수채화로 수많은 호주 가정에 그의 복제품이 걸려 있을 정도로 인기를 누린 인물입니다. 영국여왕으로부터 메달을 수여받을 정도로 작품성 또한 인정받았으나, 그 자신은 앨리스 스프링스의 원주민 보호구역을 벗어나지 않는 빈곤한 삶을 살았습니다. 정부로부터 음주에 관한 권리를 부여 받았으나, 자신의 집에 방문한 친구들에게 술을 권한 것으로 6개월 징역형을 선고 받는 어처구니없는 사건으로 미루어 볼 때 당시 원주민이 얼마나 많은 박해를 견뎌야 했는지 미루어 짐작할 수 있습니다.

Governments seem to be locked in a constant struggle with the problems of budgeting. Cabinet never has enough resources to go around, and while some agencies 'guard' public expenditure, others find endless ways to make new claims on budgets.
Managing Public Expenditure in Australia provides the first systematic analysis of government budgeting and the politics of the budgetary process. Drawing on extensive original sources, the authors examine debates and reforms in public finance from Whitlam and Fraser to Hawke, Keating and Howard, and assess their impacts on policy development. In tracking the way governments actually spend money, Managing Public Expenditure in Australia provides an alternate and complementary political history of federal government over the past forty years.
This book also includes accessible discussions on topics such as budget theory, financial management in government, and debt and deficit reduction. An explanation of new resource management techniques and initiatives help to illuminate the ongoing changes to budget and expenditure management practices.
This is an essential purchase for students, teachers and practitioners of public finance, and for anyone involved in the continuing debate over the nature and role of the public sector.
Pronunciation is very clearly explained first, and it is followed by twenty-five well-proportioned, progressive lessons that cover all the main points of contemporary grammar: gender, present indicative, formation of plural, agreement and position of adjectives, definite and indefinite article, use of ser and estar, commands, personal pronouns, imperfect indicative, reflexive pronouns and reflexive verbs, present subjunctive, future and imperfect subjunctive, conditional, negatives, infinitive, pluperfect and perfect indicative, and much more. An Appendix gives conjugations of regular verbs, orthographic-changing verbs, radical-changing verbs, and irregular verbs, while a Portuguese-English Vocabulary, an English-Portuguese Vocabulary, and an Index complete the book.
This book is suitable for self-study outside of class, for refresher, and for reference. It is particularly useful as a supplement to phrase and conversational study.
With information gathered from different reliable sources, the book details in chronological order the Petrov's defection - the events that occurred before and the factors that led to it; its announcement; and the implications of this event for politics and espionage. The text also explains how the affair affected the Australian people and the world; the conclusion of this event; and the events that happened after it.
