    Creating New Futures - Settling Children and Youth from Refugee Backgrounds

    by Mary Crock

    This book has been written at a time when as many children are on the move as forced migrants as at any time in human history. In 2014, UNHCR estimated that more than 59 million people were on the move as refugees or ‘persons of concern’. At least half were children. Australia has not escaped this global phenomenon: young people feature prominently in both planned humanitarian migration and asylum flows. Rather than focus on how children seek protection, this book is about what happens afterwards. Essays by distinguished professionals in...

    Forgotten War

    by Henry Reynolds

    *Winner of the 2014 Victorian Premier's Award for non-fiction!* Australia is dotted with memorials to soldiers who fought in wars overseas. Why are there no official memorials or commemorations of the wars that were fought on Australian soil between Aborigines and white colonists? Why is it more controversial to talk about the frontier war now than it was one hundred years ago?

  • Inclusion in the Early Years 2nd Ed.

    Inclusion in the Early Years 2nd Ed.

    by Cathy Nutbrown and Peter Cloug

    This insightful text shows how practices in a range of early years settings can be influenced by the attitudes and responses of adults in those settings. The authors argue for a broad definition of inclusion, not limited to those with learning difficulties or impairment, but addressing factors affecting all members of the learning community. The book presents a number of original stories (generated from a recent research project carried out by the authors) of how the lives of practitioners, parents and children have been affected by inclusive and non-...
