Watching Warne, McGrath and Langer leave the field for the last time after the 2007 Ashes whitewash, Michael Hussey knew that life was going to get tough for the Australian cricket side. With these stars retiring and more to follow, he wondered how the team could ever recover. This is the inside story of how it did. No-one foresaw quite how far Australia would fall, or for how long. For the next seven years, disasters on the field were echoed by failings in the boardroom and at the management table. Twenty20 loomed large, three coaches came and went, Ricky Ponting made way for Michael Clarke. The Argus review argued for fundamental change in the team. England took their revenge on the pitch and India asserted its dominance off it. Somehow, though, out of the worst of the chaos in 2013 emerged the sweetest of triumphs: a team of old campaigners and emerging youngsters shook off the recent past to repeat the 5-0 Ashes sweep at home. Australian cricket was back. One of Australia's sharpest cricket writers, Daniel Brettig watched all this unfold at close quarters. Drawing upon the frank reflections of a host of key figures in Australian cricket and his own observations from behind the scenes, he seamlessly weaves together events on and off the field into a fascinating insider's account of the lows and highs of recent Australian cricket. Whitewash to Whitewash tells a tale that is in turns ludicrous, uproarious and heroic – and the great comeback stories of modern times. 'Multitudes of books are written about sport. Too few are as thorough, entertaining and, in places, brave as Daniel Brettig's.' Adelaide Advertiser

By putting the language used in television, the radio, the internet and press, as well as that spoken by key leaders, under the spotlight, what is ultimately revealed is the existence of a 'white' language, both coded and overt. Taking specific examples and presenting new factual evidence, John Gabriel studies the racial politics that lie behind much of the communication in the public arena. Case studies draw on contemporary political controversies and are used to explore the relationship between racialised forms of media discourse and political and economic change.

In December 2002, The Fabrication of Aboriginal History, Volume One by Keith Windschuttle was published. It argued that violence between whites and Aborigines in colonial Tasmania had been vastly exaggerated and sought to rewrite one of the most troubling parts of Australian history. The book soon attracted widespread coverage, including both high praise and heated critcism. Until now, Windschuttle's arguments have not been comprehensively examined. Whitewash collects some of Australia's leading writers on Aboriginal history to do just this. The result provides not only a demolition of Windschuttle's revisionism but also a vivid and illuminating history of one of the most famous and tragic episodes in the history of the British Empire - the dispossession of the Tasmanian Aborigines. Contributors include: James Boyce, Martin Krygier, Robert van Krieken, Henry Reynolds, Shayne Breen, Marilyn Lake, Greg Lehman, Neville Green, Cathie Clement, Peggy Patrick, Phillip Tardif, David Hansen, Lyndall Ryan, Cassandra Pybus, Ian McFarlane, Mark Finnane, Tim Murray, Christine Williamson, A. Dirk Moses and Robert Manne.

When a school vehicle gets wrecked in the remote Gibson Desert, the education department try to whitewash the accident. The wrecked vehicle is quickly removed from the accident scene. An injured school teacher is taken to a remote Aboriginal community where there is no doctor and no hospital. Despite having life threatening injuries including a fractured skull, broken back, broken ribs, broken neck and spine injuries, he is denied medical treatment. When he survives, it creates a dilemma for those involved in whitewashing the accident. They didn't provide him with any medical help after the accident so they need to deny he has any injuries. Although he sustained more than fifty broken bones, they try to pretend those bones are not broken. He manages to stay alive by getting medical treatment oversees. When he makes a bit of noise about the matter, the Western Australian Government need to muzzle him to protect their reputation. They don't want people to find out about the incident. They kidnap the teacher and lock him up at a detention center. He gets freed after four days incarceration. They then need to cover up the kidnapping and unlawful detention as well as the accident. They want to imprison him again to silence him. They want to silence him indefinitely. He flees Australia and goes into exile oversees to evade the government's devious intentions.This is a true story based on the author's personal experiences with government departments like the education department and health department. The author obtains fraudulent documents manufactured by the health department after the kidnapping. These events take place in Australia where most people assume this kind of thing doesn't happen.

According to common perception, the Federal Republic of Germany supported the formation of the Israeli state for moral reasons - to atone for its Nazi past - but did not play a significant role in the Arab-Israeli conflict. However, the historical record does not sustain this narrative.Daniel Marwecki's pathbreaking analysis deconstructs the myths surrounding the odd alliance between Israel and post-war democratic Germany. Thorough archival research shows how German policymakers often had disingenuous, cynical or even partly antisemitic motivations, seeking to whitewash their Nazipast by supporting the new Israeli state. This is the true context of West Germany's crucial backing of Israel in the 1950s and '60s. German economic and military support greatly contributed to Israel's early consolidation and eventual regional hegemony. This initial alliance has affected Germany'srole in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the present day.Marwecki reassesses German foreign policymaking and identity-shaping, and raises difficult questions about German responsibility after the Holocaust, exploring the many ways in which the genocide of European Jews and the dispossession of the Palestinians have become tragically intertwined in theMiddle East's international politics. This long overdue investigation sheds new light on a major episode in the history of the modern Middle East.

Rachel Carson Environment Book Award, First Place (2017) "Reads like a mystery novel as Gillam skillfully uncovers Monsanto's secretive strategies."—Erin Brockovich "A damning picture...Gillam expertly covers a contentious front." —Publishers Weekly "A must-read." —Booklist "Hard-hitting, eye-opening narrative." —Kirkus In Whitewash, veteran journalist Carey Gillam uncovers one of the most controversial stories in the history of food and agriculture. Gillam explores the global debate over the safety of a herbicide so pervasive that it is found in our cereals, snacks, and even in our urine. Known as Monsanto's Roundup by consumers and as glyphosate by scientists, the world's most popular weed killer is sold as safe enough to drink, but Gillam's research shows that message has been carefully crafted to conceal a host of dangers. Whitewash is more than an exposé about the hazards of one chemical. It's a story of power, politics, and the deadly consequences of putting corporate interests ahead of public safety.

North Americans are some of the least healthy people on Earth. Despite advanced medical care and one of the highest standards of living in the world, one in three Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and 50 percent of US children are overweight. This crisis in personal health is largely the result of chronically poor dietary and lifestyle choices. In Whitewash, nutritionist Joseph Keon unveils how North Americans unwittingly sabotage their health every day by drinking milk, and he shows that our obsession with calcium is unwarranted. Citing scientific literature, Whitewash builds an unassailable case that not only is milk unnecessary for human health, its inclusion in the diet may increase the risk of serious diseases including: Prostate, breast, and ovarian cancers Osteoporosis Diabetes Vascular disease Crohn's disease Many of America's dairy herds contain sick and immunocompromised animals whose tainted milk regularly makes it to market. Cow's milk is also a sink for environmental contaminants and has been found to contain traces of pesticides, dioxins, PCBs, rocket fuel, and even radioactive isotopes. Whitewash offers a completely fresh, candid, and comprehensively documented look behind dairy's deceptively green pastures and gives readers a hopeful picture of life after milk. Joseph Keon has been a wellness consultant and nutrition and fitness expert for over twenty-five years. He is considered a leading authority on public health and has written three books, including Whole Health: The Guide to Wellness of Body and Mind and The Truth About Breast Cancer.

Harold Weisberg’s Whitewash was originally self-published in 1965, at a time when few publishing houses would consider a book challenging the Warren Report. Written in Harold’s fiercely passionate yet scrupulously honest style, and relying on the government’s own evidence and documentation, Whitewash destroys the Warren Commission’s claims about Oswald and shows that the Commission knowingly engaged in a cover-up. Weisberg diligently researched the government’s unpublished evidence and played a major role in forcing disclosures via the Freedom of Information Act. A watershed publication and one that established the author as one of the premier JFK assassination researchers, Whitewash (as well as the subsequent books in the Whitewash series) has become of the essential assassination publications, and nearly five decades later his work has lost none of its bite.

White Americans, abetted by neo-conservative writers of all hues, generally believe that racial discrimination is a thing of the past and that any racial inequalities that undeniably persist—in wages, family income, access to housing or health care—can be attributed to African Americans' cultural and individual failures. If the experience of most black Americans says otherwise, an explanation has been sorely lacking—or obscured by the passions the issue provokes. At long last offering a cool, clear, and informed perspective on the subject, this book brings together a team of highly respected sociologists, political scientists, economists, criminologists, and legal scholars to scrutinize the logic and evidence behind the widely held belief in a color-blind society—and to provide an alternative explanation for continued racial inequality in the United States. While not denying the economic advances of black Americans since the 1960s, Whitewashing Race draws on new and compelling research to demonstrate the persistence of racism and the effects of organized racial advantage across many institutions in American society—including the labor market, the welfare state, the criminal justice system, and schools and universities. Looking beyond the stalled debate over current antidiscrimination policies, the authors also put forth a fresh vision for achieving genuine racial equality of opportunity in a post-affirmative action world.

In 1935, a series of bizarre and heinous crimes gripped the American Southwest in fear. From New Mexico to the far reaches of the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation, a string of kidnappings, robberies, and violence has targeted Catholic missionaries and more. In a bold effort to stop the nightmare, the chief of tribal police is paired with an undercover FBI agent. They start at a missionary boarding school, but with each new question, increasingly alarming answers expand the scope of their investigation further than either ever imagined. Now, an Apache family must battle a massive international conspiracy involving the Catholic Church, the Vatican, and the United States government. Victims and families become allies. The superintendent of Indian Affairs and the clergy become enemies. Deeply steeped in the culture and mystique of the ndee-the Apache people-the secrets that wait in the shadows will inspire these experienced agents to do whatever it takes to solve this case-at any cost. As new information surfaces, the only fact to trust is no one can be trusted.

Praise for "Whitewash" "F***ing Brilliant"-The Estate of Euan O'Dell "How does Blair do it? Everyone in this town talks to Erik Blair, because if you don't, you're screwed."-Paris Biddle Blumenthal "Blair's paroxysms of outrage at being a victim of deception speak for all of us who thought we knew what we knew when we knew it. And his unparalleled gift for the intimate anecdote reveals an inner Washington we all should have seen coming a long time ago"-Frank Arouet "A disarming account which reveals the salient fact of modern political life: the perpetual war between honesty and loyalty. Whitewash" should awaken us from our dogmatic slumbers"-Samantha Franken Butler When Erik Blair took in a homeless woman, injured by the roadside, he could not possibly have imagined the staggering rise to fame and power that the future held for her. Nor could he have known that she was hiding a secret life. The CIA, the President, and his staff most certainly could discern her true identity, though, if only they would dare to look. But is there anyone willing to pay the price of honor ?
