One of America's most brilliant public intellectuals, he has spent his career writing on revolutionary movements and their totalitarian aspects. He argues that, in the "War on Terror", we are not facing a battle of the West against Islam - a clash of civilizations. We are facing, instead, the same battle that tore apart Europe during most of the 20th century, only in a new version. 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. But he also draws, from those past experiences, a liberal program that departs in fundamental respects from the policies of the Bush administration. ISBN: 0393325555. Our Book No: 16065. $12 AUD.

Sydney: Random House. 386 pp. Paperback thick octavo, very good plus condition, black & white photos centre spread, minimal edgewear, old price marks. Murder or justice? This question has still been fiercely debated a century after Lieutenants Harry Morant and Peter Hancock were executed outside Pretoria at dawn on 27 February 1902, by a British military firing squad. They were found guilty of murdering Boer prisoners, but claimed they were received orders from Lord Kitchener to "take no prisoners". In every war there is a character like Morant - a buck jumper, bush balladeer and rebellious spirit who ends up on the wrong side of the "great cause". The lies and the civic and political skulduggery that lay behind his executions are exposed here for the first time. ISBN: 174051081X. Our Book No: 11246. $15 AUD.

New York: Basic Books / Perseus Books. 563 pp. Paperback thick trade, very good plus condition, black & white text-photos centre spread. A provocative and boldly-conceived history that explodes many of the myths surrounding the First World War (WW1), which killed around eight million men and bled Europe dry. Was the sacrifice worth it? Was it all really an inevitable cataclysm and were the Germans a genuine threat? Was the war, as is often asserted, greeted with popular enthusiasm? Why did men keep on fighting when conditions were so wretched? Was there in fact a death wish abroad, driving soldiers to their own destruction? The war, he argues, was a disaster - but not for the reasons we think. Far worse than a tragedy, it was the greatest error of modern history. One of the very few books whose own scale matches that of the events it describes. ISBN: 0465057128. Our Book No: 15595. $20 AUD.

The Japanese bombing raid on Darwin, on 19 February 1942, was the first wartime assault on Australian soil. The Japanese struck with the same carrier-borne force that devastated Pearl Harbor only ten weeks earlier. There was a difference. More bombs fell on Darwin, more civilians were killed, and more ships were sunk.The raid led to the worst death toll from any event in Australia. The people of Darwin abandoned their town, leaving it to looters, a few anti-aircraft batteries and a handful of dogged defenders with single-shot rifles. Yet the story has remained in the shadows. Drawing on long-hidden documents and first-person accounts, Grose tells what really happened. There was much to be proud of in Darwin that day: courage, mateship, determination and improvisation. But the dark side of the story involves looting, desertion and a calamitous failure of leadership. ISBN: 9781741756432. Our Book No: 15138. $15 AUD.

London: Earthscan Publications. 185 pp. Hardback octavo, no jacket as issued, pictorial cover, as new condition. Explores how uncertainty is interpreted and used by policy makers, experts and politicians. It argues that conventional notions of rational, evidence-based policy making - hailed by governments and organisations across the world as the only way to make good policy - is impossible in highly complex and uncertain environments. The blind pursuit of such a rational goal is in fact irrational in a world of competing values and interests. Based on two high-profile case studies: the Iraq War, and climate change policy in the US, UK and Australia. Based on three years' research - including interviews with experts such as Hans Blix, Paul Pillar and Brian Jones. Both case studies show that treatment of uncertainty issues in specialist advice is often determined by how well the advice fits with or contradicts the policy goals and orientation of the politicians. One should not allow the debate to be side-tracked by arguments over whose expert advice is "more right". We must accept that uncertainty in complex issues is unavoidable, and recognise the values and interests that lie at the heart of the issues. Offers a hedging approach; this enables policy makers to manage rather than eliminate uncertainty. ISBN: 9781849710831. Our Book No: 14256. $40 AUD.

The wave of ethnic conflict that has swept across Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and Africa, has led to fear that these conflicts are contagious.

Ethnic conflict is not caused directly by intergroup differences or centuries-old feuds. The collapse of the Soviet Union did not simply uncork ethnic passions long suppressed. They look instead at how anxieties over security, competition for resources, breakdown in communication with the government, and the inability to make enduring commitments lead ethnic groups into conflict. Considers the strategic interactions that underlie ethnic conflict and its effective management. ISBN: 0691016909. Our Book No: 15049. $20 AUD.

London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson. 257 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket). Novel based on the mutiny on the Bounty that weaves facts with fiction. At dawn on 27 April 1789 Fletcher Christian, master's mate on the HMS Bounty, took a coconut to quench his thirst from the supply on the quarterdeck. But the consequences followed: mutiny; Captain Bligh's navigation 3000 miles across the Pacific in an open boat in violent weather without maps or supplies and with starving men; the colonising of Pitcairn Island; the shipwreck on the Great Barrier Reef of HMS Pandora sent to capture the mutineers; and, two hundred years later, the seduction of the narrator in a rudderless yacht on stormy seas. This singular tale by a Whitbread Prize-winning writer connects the famous mutiny on the Bounty in the Pacific Ocean in 1789 to the plight of the islanders of Pitcairn now. Its conceptual core is chaos theory: how a small chance thing, the taking of a coconut by Fletcher Christian from William Bligh's stores on the ship, had dramatic ramifications that continue today.
