Nhanda from the Author: Juliette Blevins. This book presents the first detailed sketch grammar of Nhanda, a Pama-Nyungan language of the central coast of Western Australia presently on the verge of extinction. This language was once spoken along the lower Murchison River, from Kalbarri inland, and south to present-day Northampton and Geraldton, but has remained largely unknown until recent years. Nhanda is based on the author's fieldwork in Western Australia from 1993 to 1998 with one of the last speakers of the language, and also incorporates notes of early explorers and linguists who passed through the area. The grammar presents the general features of the language within the Australian context, followed by a comprehensive study of Nhanda sound patterns, major sections on nominal and verbal morphology, and descriptions of simple sentences and constituent order. Each chapter is rich in data and provides comparative evidence with important implications for historical relationships between the languages of Australia. The volume also includes Nhanda-English and English-Nhanda alphabetical vocabularies and an alphabetical list of Nhanda affixes. Oceanic Linguistics Special Publication No. 30

This new edition, the fourth, will be widely and warmly welcomed. Massive changes have taken place. There have been 15 amendments to the Mining Act and 28 amendments to the Mining Regulations since the third edition. In that period, there has been a substantial volume of case law through decisions in the High Court, the Supreme Court and the Wardens' Courts. Other significant changes have arisen as a result of another seven yearsâ™ experience of the impact of the Native Title Act upon the application of mining law. The most important changes for practitioners of mining law have been made in the area of proceedings before the warden where the administrative and judicial functions ofthe warden have been separated. The new edition reflects all these changes and states the lawas at 1 October 2008. The basic structure of previous editions is retained - chapter by chapter commentary which follows the layout of the Mining Act itself. Although the book deals with mining law in Western Australia, it has always been regarded as having a relevance to the mining industry in other States and the Northern Territory, as broadly similar principles apply throughout Australia. This relevance has been enhanced in the fourth edition because of the expanded coverage of case law and native title issues.

Running Out from the Author: Ruth A. Morgan. For nearly 200 years, the visions and aspirations of the people of Australia's west have been characterized by an 'unquenchable thirst.' This book uncovers a fear that has long gripped the region's inhabitants and loomed large on the state's political agenda: the fear of running out of water. This fear has shaped how urban and rural Western Australians learned to live with the effects of a variable climate on their water supply, lifestyle, and livelihood. This is a story of hardship and persistence; of inclusion, exclusion, and defiant profligacy in the face of growing scarcity, through a period of great development and social change. It is an engrossing environmental history that offers a new understanding of the past. Running Out?: Water in Western Australia questions this way of life, as Western Australians approach an uncertain future in a drying climate. Connecting the local to the global, the book provides a deep, historical nuanced discussion on the country's water resources and usage. *** Ruth Morgan has written a book that wears its scholarship easily and tells its story briskly with grace and skill...an analysis that has relevance well beyond Australia. -- Richard White, Stanford U. *** Lucid and engaging, this book tells a compelling story with vital implications for the nation's future...This is environmental history at its best. -- Grace Karskens, U. of New South Wales [Subject: Australian Studies, Environmental Studies, History]

Prehistoric Mammals Of Western Australia from the Author: Ken McNamara. "A rich accumulation of bones, many far larger than any modern-day native mammal, was excavated in 1909 from Mammoth Cave in Australia's south-west. The treasure trove was a time capsule of mammal megafauna, evidence that in prehistoric times giant animals had roamed the Australian bush."--Back cover.

The Languages Of The Kimberley Western Australia from the Author: William B. McGregor. The Kimberley, the far north-west of Australia, is one of the most linguistically diverse regions of the continent. Some fifty-five Aboriginal languages belonging to five different families are spoken within its borders. Few of these languages are currently being passed on to children, most of whom speak Kriol (a new language that arose about half a century ago from an earlier Pidgin English) or Aboriginal English (a dialect of English) as their mother tongue and usual language of communication. This book describes the Aboriginal languages spoken today and in the recent past in this region.
