Children of the Zone – Derek Parker
Paperback, 142 pages
In 1986 there was a nuclear disaster at Chernobyl, in what was then the Soviet Union. The area, over two thousand square kilometres, was evacuated and sealed, closed off from the world by a massive wall. But 149 schoolkids are left behind, forgotten. Over time, they learn how to survive, and slowly they build a society for themselves despite the dangers - radiation, wolves, and winter - of the Zone. Twenty years after the Evacuation, a helicopter from the other side of the Wall appears, with a mysterious woman at the controls. That encounter sparks a chain of events which takes one of the Children, the hunter Isaak, back to the past, to the day of the Evacuation - and towards a confrontation which threatens the future of the Zone itself. Derek Parker is a freelance writer based in Melbourne. His non-fiction writing appears in a wide range of publications. He has two children and two cats. Children of Zone is his second novel, after This Tattooed Land.
Liberty, Equality & Democracy – Chris Berg
Paperback, 194 pages
If we don't believe our fellow citizens are intellectually capable of deciding what and how much to eat, whether to drink, or how to arrange their financial affairs, then why do we think they are capable of voting?' We live in a fundamentally undemocratic age. Governments treat their citizens as incapable of making decisions for themselves. Policy-making power has been taken out of the hands of elected politicians. Poll after poll shows the public is unhappy with democracy itself. In this wide-ranging book, Chris Berg makes the case for radical democratic equality, and a democratic order that truly respects the equality and rights of its citizens. Chris Berg is a Senior Fellow with the Institute of Public Affairs and a prominent columnist and political commentator.
Really Dangerous Ideas – Edited by Gary Johns
Paperback, 152 pages
The inspiration for this book of essays came from the Festival of Dangerous Ideas (FODI). The Sydney Opera House and the St James Ethics Centre have hosted FODI for four years. Although the organisers try to canvass ideas that appeal across the political spectrum, they are about as balanced as the ABC1 television's Q&A and as subtle as, 'when did you stop beating your wife?' For example, Israel is an apartheid state was a nice little starter in the 2012 Festival. Ilan Pappe an Israeli was invited to speak; he is the author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. Who are the people who attend FODI and believe the nonsense they are fed?: those who forsake the world of markets and profit, who forsake religion, except for environmentalism, who forsake science, except in the service of climate change abatement policies. They are the people we call, and they also call, Progressives. The proposition in this book is that not much progress occurs when Progressives rule the policy roost. These are beaut little essays, written in an opinion style, easy to digest, indeed quite dangerous and perhaps the first of many volumes.
The Forgotten People: An Update – Edited by Paul Ritchie
Paperback, 254 pages.
Robert Menzies' famous Forgotten People speeches captured the hopes of Australians as they looked forward to a better life after World War II. While times have changed, Menzies' themes of freedom, opportunity and responsibility remain.

The Conservative Revolution – Cory Bernadi
Paperback, 164 pages
An unapologetic advocate for mainstream values, Cory Bernardi presents a bold vision for a stronger nation that is founded on conservative principles. He takes the fight to the political left and calls for an overturning of the existing moral relativism that threatens Australia's way of life. Bernardi argues that the best way to tackle this threat is to protect and defend the traditional institutions that have stood the test of time, something that he has done during his time as a senator in the Australian Parliament. Bernardi's work courageously promotes the conservative cause and sets out a path to a better Australia through a commitment to faith, family, flag, freedom and free enterprise. This volume reminds us that conservative principles - not the populist whims of the left - generate enduring stability, success and strength. That is why we need a conservative revolution.
