He fought Napoleon's army and survived. He was sent to the gallows and escaped the noose. Now he is in chains and on his way to the other side of the world. What happens next will become one of the most remarkable survival stories in history. The 19th century has just begun. The world is at war. England, ruled by a mad king, is exiling thousands of criminals to an old land that has become its newest dumping ground. One of those prisoners is William Buckley, barely 21, a former soldier sentenced to life for stealing two small pieces of cloth. He's a giant for his times. But it's not just his towering frame that sets him apart. It's his desire for freedom that will make his story so unique - even in an era famous for outrageous acts of bravery and heroism. On a moonlit night Buckley escapes and disappears into the Australian bush. Discovered and adopted by an aboriginal tribe who regard him as a ghost, he is initiated into their rich and complex culture. Given up for dead by his white captors, he will not be seen again for more than 30 years until he emerges one day...carrying a spear, dressed in animal skins and having forgotten the English language. Buckley's Chanceis a profound journey into a turning point in history where cultures clash, bitter rivals go to war and the body count mounts. It's also the story of a man who refuses to be held down. A man prepared to defy all odds and take a chance. Buckley's chance.

Dr. Niall (Jock) McLaren is an Australian psychiatrist who uses philosophical analysis to show that modern psychiatry has no scientific basis. This startling conclusion dovetails neatly with the growing evidence that psychiatric drug treatment is crude and damaging. Needless to say, this message is not popular with mainstream psychiatrists. However, in this book, he shows how the principles of information processing give a formal theory of mind that generates a model of mental disorder as a psychological phenomenon.

Among all those legendary bushrangers, heroic explorers, genius inventors and upstanding politicians in Australian history, aren't there some duds in the pack? Of course there are! Paul Stafford has rounded up all the dingbats, dropkicks and disasters in our glorious past. All together now, let us say to them . . . 'YOU'RE HISTORY, MATE!' Which explorer claimed to have found an enormous reef of gold then lost it again (and lost himself in the process)? Heard about the men who sold their shares in BHP just days before the mineral discovery that made it the richest mine in history? Surely it can't be true that one of our politicians drank a glass of herbicide to prove it wasn't poisonous? And how did the police catch the ugliest, least successful and unluckiest colonial bushranger you could ever hope to find? Learn about some of the lesser-known episodes buried in our history and what life was really like in colonial Australia, right through to the 1920s and beyond.
