The American soldier named Bill Wynne called her Smoky, never dreaming that Smoky would become famous. Bill became ill with dengue fever, and he asked for Smoky to visit him at the hospital. She was soon visiting other soldiers on the ward. This experience inspired Bill to visit injured soldiers with Smoky while on leave in Australia, and she is recognised today as the first therapy dog. The author is a historian and former military dog handler. He writes about his own efforts to see Smoky formally recognised for her war work. He has interwoven Smoky's story with remarkable tales of other military dogs, past and present, and the vital roles they play in wartime. ISBN: 9781742574592. Our Book No: 29882. $18 AUD.

New York: Guilford Press. 402 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), rear jacket flap creased, minimal edgewear. Second edition. Since the original publication of this seminal work, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) has come into its own as a widely practiced approach to helping people change. This book provides the definitive statement of ACT--from conceptual and empirical foundations to clinical techniques--written by its originators. ACT is based on the idea that psychological rigidity is a root cause of a wide range of clinical problems. The authors describe effective, innovative ways to cultivate psychological flexibility by detecting and targeting six key processes: defusion, acceptance, attention to the present moment, self-awareness, values, and committed action. Sample therapeutic exercises and patient-therapist dialogues are integrated throughout. New to this edition: (1) Reflects tremendous advances in ACT clinical applications, theory building, and research. (2) Psychological flexibility is now the central organizing focus. (3) Expanded coverage of mindfulness, the therapeutic relationship, relational learning, and case formulation. (4) Restructured to be more clinician friendly and accessible; focuses on the moment-by-moment process of therapy. ISBN: 9781609189624. Our Book No: 17458. $50 AUD.

New Delhi: Manohar. 310 pp. Hardback small octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket), pictorial cover, tables, minor edgewear. Deccan like the rest of British India had all the social economic and material ingredients for proliferation of epidemic diseases. Its population lived in unsanitary conditions, consumed contaminated water, and was crowded into wretched houses: extreme poverty, sunk in debt, and suffering from serious food shortage and malnutrition. The existence of mass poverty and its denial by the colonial state made the situation worse. This book argues that the reason for dysentery diarrhoea and bowel complaints was really malnutrition undernourishment and the general poverty of the masses. Even though the diseases were associated with poverty and malnutrition, the British imperial medical establishment continued to blindly adhere to its non-contagion miasmatic ideology. When the imperial state created hundreds of miles of roads and railways, diseases like cholera malaria, smallpox and plague proliferated everywhere. ISBN: 8173043140. Our Book No: 17457. $30 AUD.
