Running Out from the Author: Ruth Morgan. For nearly 200 years the visions and aspirations of the people of Australia’s west have been characterised by an unquenchable thirst. Ruth Morgan uncovers the fear of running out of water — a fear that has long gripped the region’s inhabitants and loomed large on the state’s political agenda. It 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. An engrossing environmental history that offers a new understanding of the past Running Out? questions this way of life as we approach an uncertain future in a drying climate.

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.

The Shore Whalers Of Western Australia from the Author: Martin Gibbs. Every winter between 1836 to 1879 small wooden boats left the bays of southwest Western Australia to hunt for migrating Humpback and Right whales. In the early years of European settlement these small shore whaling parties and the whale oil they produced were an important part of the colonial economy, yet over time their significance diminished until they virtually vanished from the documentary record. Using archival research and archaeological evidence, The Shore Whalers of Western Australia examines the history and operation of this almost forgotten industry on the remote maritime frontier of the British Empire and the role of the whalers in the history of early contact between Europeans and Aboriginal people. Dr Martin Gibbs is a senior lecturer in the Department of Archaeology of the University of Sydney and the President of the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology.

Contested Country from the Author: Patricia Crawford. Whose country is Australia? And who decides how the land should be managed? In exploring such fundamental questions, involving divergent views on Aboriginal land rights, environmental issues and, in particular, the future of Australian forests, Patricia and Ian Crawford argue that differing attitudes to the land underlie many of the current divisions between Aboriginal and European, city and country. This book focuses on the area surrounding Northcliffe, a small Western Australian country town deep in the cool, rainy karri country and coastal plains of the lower South West. But Northcliffe is presented as a microcosm of Australian society, so this is essentially an Australian story, one in which the authors seek to understand the land, the conflicting views over its use, and the way people have sought to shape it to their own purposes, whether hunting and gathering, droving, dairy farming, forestry or conservation. This book has grown out of the author's close personal involvement with the region and its people, and their concern for the preservation of one of the most botanically diverse areas in Australia.
