To the convicts arriving in Van Diemen's Land, it must have felt as though they'd been sent to the very ends of the earth. Tells the history of the men and women transported to what became one of Britain's most notorious convict colonies. Following the lives of dozens of convicts and their families, she uncovers stories of success, failure, and everything in between. While some suffered brutal conditions, most served their time and were freed, becoming ordinary and peaceful citizens. Yet, over the decades, a terrible stigma became associated with the convicts, and they and the whole colony went to extraordinary lengths to hide it. The majority of Tasmanians today have convict ancestry, whether they know it or not. While the public stigma of its convict past has given way to a contemporary fascination with colonial history, she debates whether the convict past lingers deep in the psyche of white Tasmania.

It is the clash of liberalism and its enemies - the battle between freedom and totalitarianism that arose in Europe many years ago and spread to the Muslim world. The author considers the wars against fascism and communism from the past, and draws cautionary lessons.

Sydney: Hachette Australia. 338 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, black & white photos, minor edgewear. When Harold Bell Lasseter disappeared in 1930 it could have been the end of a mystery.

Smithton, TAS: Jamala Press. 186 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, no flyleaf or title page as issued, black & white photos, front hinge slightly split (pages firm), minor edgewear corners & top spine. 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.

Wigton, Leics: Capella / Arcturus Publishing. 239 pp. Paperback trade, very good plus condition, maps, few black & white drawings, minimal edgewear. Between 1450 and 1750, more than 100,000 people - mainly women - in Europe and colonial America were prosecuted for practising harmful magic and worshipping the devil. Tens of thousands were executed, often after being subjected to bestial tortures. Examines this persecution, and the religious hysteria which inspired it, tracing its roots back to the savage suppression of the heretical Waldensian sect by the Catholic Church. With the creation of the Inquisition, and the publication of the book 'Witchfinders' Bible', the craze soon spread across Europe and reached as far as the United States where, despite the infamy of the Salem Witch Trials, it was soon dismissed by a more rational population. Although witch trials continued in Scotland until 1727, Norway until 1760 and Hungary until 1777, the growth of scientific reason gradually gained ground from the witch hunters. ISBN: 1841931845.

Why has the overall response to terrorism after 9/11 been so abysmal, slow, piecemeal, and far from effective? Why have some countries, despite international criticism, disregarded universally accepted humanitarian norms when prosecuting terrorist suspects? The United States, for example, has squandered an opportunity to combat terrorism with a united and powerful force. Presents clear and concise proposals for future dealings with global terrorism.

But that is actually a very small part of his story.

Nora flew out of Prague on the first Kindertransport, on the eve of World War II. This rescue mission, organised by Nicholas Winton, saved the lives of hundreds of children. Nora tells her own fascinating story and those of other survivors of those terrible times. Her father, an anti-Fascist journalist from a cultured German Jewish family, foresaw the rise of the Nazis and escaped to the safe haven of England, where both he and Huppert spent the War. Loss, rescue, the web of connections and the idea of home for someone who has experienced five migrations, are the book's compelling themes. Home for her is a quality of being, about blending in and making a contribution wherever she finds herself living. Read this book to relive the experience of one child refugee and to gain an insider's view of Europe before the War and Britain and Australia afterwards. (Retitled edition, or perhaps revised.

New York: St Martin's Press. 290 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket), minimal edgewear. First edition. Across the USA, families are being torn apart and people sent to prison, because of a trendy new psychological phenomenon: recovered memory. When the mind is forced to endure a horrifying experience, can it bury the entire memory so deeply within the unconscious that it can only be recalled as a flashback? Therapists and lawyers have created an industry based on treating and litigating the cases of people who suddenly claim to have "recovered" memories of everything from child abuse to murder. Psychologist Loftus reveals that there is no controlled scientific support for the idea that memories of trauma are routinely banished into the unconscious and then reliably recovered years later. They neither dispute the reality of childhood sexual abuse nor the existence of traumatic memories, but they reject the true believers' assertions that "incest is epidemic, repression is rampant" and that "skeptics" are "in denial."

In this story of squandered opportunities, misguided alliances and double-dealing, Rashid pinpoints with chilling accuracy where the true threat to our global security comes from. Ahmed Rashid is Pakistan's premiere journalist, an expert on Central Asia, on jihad and Muslim extremists movements, on the Taliban and Al Qaeda, on insurgency, and on the catastrophe of US policy in this region, on which he has reported for 25 years.
