  • Have you killed any strangers lately? Try it - it can be fun! All you have to do is make a friend; because every time you make a friend you kill a stranger. Each person whose story is in this book has learnt this exciting, valuable lesson.  Many people, able-bodied and disabled, find it hard to make friends.  The book issues the challenge to the claim that normal (?) people are responsible for the non-acceptance of disabled folk in the full life of the community.  The disabled can equally be at fault. "It's a bit like the generation gap - both sides must be willing to walk some of the way across the bridge of communication." Here are REAL people willing to share their hidden scars and their joyous victories.
  • The part played by over 24,000 women in the Australian Army in World War II is largely unknown - until now.

Taken from first-hand revealing experiences, photos and documents.
  • Cohen came to international attention when he was photographed hanging onto the bow of a US nuclear-armed warship in Sydney Harbour in protest against the nuclear arms race.  Cohen, the first Green member of the N.S.W Parliament, looks back over sixteen years of radical environmentalism. Cohen tells it as it was on the ground, at protests such as the 1982 Nightcap Forest campaign, the Franklin River blockade, Roxby Downs uranium mine protests, Daintree, the Chaelundi old growth forest campaign in northern NSW and the campaign to end French nuclear testing in the South Pacific. Here is a gripping, powerful and insightful account of the Australian environmental protest movement, a moment which has transformed Australian politics. Illustrated with black and white photographs.
