From the author's notes: The events that took place in the life of David Howie are historical fact, and appropriate record details are quoted in the bibliography. There is no evidence that Howie left any diaries, so some speculation and embellishment has been necessary to reconstruct his story where no records exist. An insight into David Howie's immediate family in Fifeshire where he was born, has been well researched. He became a household name in Australia in 1845. The research over many years in England, Scotland and Australia tells the story of a man who became a legend in his adopted country. The story is one of crime, passion, wrecked ships, attempted murder, sealers, pirates, Aborigines, graft and incredible bravery. He rescued the survivors of the Cataraqui wreck on King Island, Australia's worst sea tragedy on record. He was awarded the title of Straits Constable by the government of the day in order to police the islands of Bass Strait. ISBN: 1876913088. Our Book No: 29603. $35 AUD.

447. Ivison, Duncan (2002). Postcolonial Liberalism (1st ed). Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (CUP). 214 pp. Paperback trade, very good condition, tiny dent rear cover, minor edgewear. Presents a compelling account of the challenges to liberal political theory by claims to cultural and political autonomy and land rights made by indigenous peoples today. Written in Australia, and with a focus on Australian Aborigines. Public debate between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples has been often mired in mutual recrimination and misunderstanding. This experience is not unique to Australia. Attempts to present a larger picture within which to consider these questions, beyond the technicalities of legal doctrine and the bureaucratic imperatives of public policy. What is distinctive about this book is the middle way it charts between separatism, on the one hand, and assimilation, on the other. These two options present a false dichotomy as to what might constitute a genuinely postcolonial liberal society. ISBN: 0521527511. Our Book No: 30432. $30 AUD.
