A study of one of this century's most important Australian landscape painters.

51 min. pal vhs.

The landscapes of the Australian painter Arthur Boyd (b. 1920) have a rough sensuality that is raw and pure as the primeval wilderness he depicts. This film shows the artist at work and reflects on his obsession with man’s relation to the environment.

Down Under: Bill Bryson (engl.) 398 S.

Artikel-Nr.: B650ep

It is the driest, flattest, hottest, most infertile and climatically aggressive of all the inhabited continent and still Australia teems with life - a large portion of it quite deadly,. In fact, Australia has more things that can kill you in a very nasty way than anywhere else.
Ignoring such dangers - and yet curiously obsessed by them - Bill Bryson journeyed to Australia and promptly fell in love with the country. And who can blame him? The people are cheerful, extrovert, quick-witted and unfailingly obliging: their cities are safe and clean and nearly always built on water; the food is excellent; the beer is cold and the sun nearly always shines. Life doesn't get much better than this...

In Tasmania: Nicholas Shakespeare (engl.) 374 S.

Artikel-Nr.: B983e

A brilliant account of 200 years of Tasmanian history and an acclaimed writer's discovery of his secret connection with that island and its past.

In Tasmania on holiday, novelist and Chatwin biographer Nicholas Shakespeare discovered a house on a 9-mile beach and instantly decided this was where he wanted to live. He didn't know then that his ancestor was the corrupt and colourful Anthony Fenn Kemp, now known as ‘the Father of Tasmania', or that he would find relatives living on the island.

Shakespeare interweaves his personal journey into a new-found paradise with a brilliant account of the two turbulent centuries of Tasmania's history in this fascinating and timely book. ‘A delightful book. Nicholas Shakespeare is a fine story teller and here he unveils for us a compendium of fascinating Tasmanian characters past and present, from bankrupt squires to convict cannibals, from love struck romantics to the captivating monstrous Anthony Fenn Kemp, the Flashman of early colonial Australia. From all these lives Shakespeare builds up a rich and powerful portrait of this intriguing land, his adopted home.' - Matthew Kneale

Mit seinem zutiefst persönlichen Tasmanien-Porträt gelingt Nicholas Shakespeare, was vor ihm nur Bruce Chatwin mit seinem berühmten Buch In Patagonien gelungen ist: Die Erkundung einer Landschaft und ihrer rauen Geschichte wird zum literarischen Ereignis.
Shakespeares Titelwahl verdeutlicht, dass hier auch ein Duell mit Bruce Chatwins In Patagonien stattfindet - ein Duell, bei dem Shakespeares Buch in jeder Hinsicht triumphiert (Daily Telegraph).
Mit den Abenteuern seiner Vorfahren erzählt Shakespeare zugleich die raue Geschichte dieser Insel am Ende der Welt.

The Locals: Rob Garbutt (engl.) 250 S.

Artikel-Nr.: A190

Identity, Place and Belonging in Australia and Beyond

This book presents the first comprehensive survey of being a local, in particular in Australia. As in much of the colonised, English-speaking world, in Australia the paradox is that the locals are not indigenous peoples but migrants with a specific ethnic heritage who became localised in time to label other migrants as the newcomers and outsiders. Claims of belonging as 'local' provide a crucial insight into power relations that extend beyond the local level to questions of national identity and the ethics of belonging in a postcolonial, multicultural nation. How have Anglo-Celtic Australians installed themselves as locals? Where do Indigenous Australians stand in this local politics of identity? What are the ethical considerations for how we connect our identities to places while also relating to others in a time of intensifying migration?

This book explores these questions via a multidisciplinary cultural studies approach and a mixed methodology that blends a critical language study of being local with auto-ethnographical accounts by the author, himself a 'local'.

Great Australian Flying Doctor Stories: Bill Marsh (engl.) 256 S.

Artikel-Nr.: A404

Bill Marsh has crafted an enthralling swag of first-hand accounts from all walks of life just in time, before reality vanishes into urban myth. With fascination we eavesdrop on wonderful, frightening, hilarious, tragic and poignant true stories, but we have more than just a remarkable anecdotal record – we have a chronicle that keeps us in touch with the independent, inspired, and often larrikin-spirited pioneers of Australia's inland.

' "What can we do now?" we were thinking (now that one of the pack of dogs had eaten the chap's amputated finger). "Okay, we can knock these dogs out, open them up one by one. Then, when we find the finger we can assess the situation and take it from there." But the fellow must have read our minds. "Ah," he said, "take me word fer it. The finger was pretty much stuffed. What's more, there's no bloody way yer gonna cut open any of my dogs just to look fer me missing finger. I got nine of the buggers left, anyways." '

Understanding Aboriginal Culture: Cyril Havecker (engl.) 110 S.

Artikel-Nr.: A410

Here is a legacy of untold value left by the Dreamtime heroes of the Australian Aboriginal people; a race so ancient it is reputed to be descended from the gods. This is a priceless heritage which belongs to every Australian, black or white.

The records left by the Wisemen of the Aborigines tell of the creation myth, how Baiame the Supreme Intelligence of the universe, created all living things and how extrasensory perception was used as a means of gaining knowledge of the past and future. There are laws for living on earth and laws for living in the multi dimensions beyond earth.

Theirs is a powerful philosophy, one which has meaning and cannot be changed by time or circumstances. It is a spiritual philosophy which most Australians, until recent years, saw as primitive and of little importance to the world.

How wrong we were, for here, in Australia, we have the oldest known people on earth whose philosophy and science served them well for nearly 50,000 years.

Cyril Havecker was a blood brother of the Warramunga tribe of Groot Eylandt. His writings, workshops and lectures during the years from 1976 until 1979 were his contribution towards a better understanding of the Australian Aboriginal's ancient culture.

Edited and foreword by Yvonne Malykke.

Country A Continent, A Scientist and a Kangaroo: Tim Flannery (engl.) 258 S.

Artikel-Nr.: B409

In this, his most personal book yet, Tim Flannery draws on three decades of travel, research, and fieldwork to craft a love letter to his native land and one of its most unique and beloved inhabitants: the kangaroo.

Crisscrossing the continent, Flannery shows us how the destiny of this extraordinary creature is inseparable from the environment that created it. Along the way he uses encounters with ancient aboriginal cultures and eccentric fossil hunters, farmers and scientists, kangaroo advocates and kangaroo hunters, to explore how Australia's deserts and rain forests have shaped human responses to the continent -- and how kangaroos have evolved to handle the resulting challenges. Ultimately, the book is an appealingly erudite yet utterly readable synthesis of memoir, travel, natural history, and evolutionary science - and further proof of Flannery's offhand interdisciplinary brilliance (Entertainment Weekly).

"Country" is almost unclassifiable. It is partly about Flannery's formative years as a palaeontologist, partly a natural history of the Australian landscape, and partly a study of the evolution of kangaroos, which, I know, sounds like three reasons not to read it. In fact, from beginning to end it is absorbing, funny, and wondrously learned (Bill Bryson).
