Corden has written a charming and insightful account of his professional and personal life, from his childhood in Breslau, Germany, until his retirement in Melbourne. The book is divided into two parts. Part I considers Corden's early life, from a young boy growing up in Nazi Germany, to his immigration from England to Australia and what that means for the author's self-identity. Part II addresses Corden's work on the Australian Protection Policy for which he is perhaps best known, before reflecting upon the author's time at Oxford University and the Australian National University, and, finally, moving on to review contributions made at the IMF, Johns Hopkins University, and The World Bank. This book will be of interest to all aspiring economists, as well as established economists familiar with Corden's work. It is an inspiring and profound record of the intellectual journey made by one of Australia's best known economists.

In Renate's spellbinding story, we're taken along on an incredible journey of survival that spans three countries and one remarkable life. In sun-soaked pages, Renate shows us life on the kibbutz and how a young country experiences the miracle of statehood. Part of Renate's gift is to give us vibrantly real and intimate glimpses of what it's like to be a young mother, nurse and doting wife during turbulent times and in a strange land. She doesn't sugarcoat, but instead shows us both the pleasures and the perils of her life, including the terrifying time when she and her husband, back in Israel, are separated from their children during the Yom Kippur War. Fearlessly honest in her writing, Renate spares no detail. This outstanding book occasionally breaks the fourth wall, allowing the author to talk with readers and reveal to them how freeing it has been for her to write about the traumas in her life. This boldness and strength of spirit give From the Promised Land to the Lucky Country its shining truth and intimacy. “We are meant to enjoy the earth.” Renate says, and in this moving memoir, we experience a woman who has, despite all the odds, found purpose and peace.– Ellen Tanner MarshNew York Times best-selling author

An inventive and vibrant historical novel about the woman who dared to be the equal of the Bard of Avon. Dramatizing a marriage born of passion and strained by ambition, Arliss Ryan's fascinating historical novel chronicles a love affair for the ages, and the story of a woman who dares to fulfill her own surprising destiny. Anne Hathaway is weighing her prospects for marriage when a dalliance with young Will Shakespeare, the poetry-writing son of a rural glove- maker, leaves her pregnant and wed. When Will joins a traveling acting troupe and moves to London, Anne leaves their children in his parents' care and boldly follows him. Taking up a new identity at Will's side, Anne supports his career as a struggling actor by sewing costumes and transcribing manuscripts in the rough-and-tumble world of London's theatres. As Will finds his true calling in writing, Anne's own literary skills begin to flower, leading to a secret collaboration that makes Will the foremost playwright in Elizabethan England.
