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.

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.

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 ?

"This magnificent book, the fruit of a decade of original research, is a landmark in Los Angeles's difficult conversation with its past. Deverell brilliantly exposes the white lies and racial deceits that have for too long reigned as municipal 'history.'"—Mike Davis
