John Jess, Seeker of Justice: The Role of the Parliament in the Hmas Voyager Tragedy, Elizabeth McCarthy
1 John Jess, Seeker of Justice: The Role of the Parliament in the Hmas Voyager Tragedy
Elizabeth McCarthy Australia Sid Harta 2015 1925230880 / 9781925230888 Soft cover New Book 21.6 x 14.0 cm 
50 Years On "The truth must be found out and it must be told. Otherwise the people of Australia will repudiate this parliament forever." - John Jess J. 1967 (Jess J. (1967) CPD 16 May) When one hears the words Voyager Royal Commission, the first thing that comes to mind is "whitewash." John Jess described the first book ever written about Voyager by Admiral Hickling as "clearly piercing the darkness." John Jess, Seeker of Justice goes a step further. This book is not an interpretation of history. It is history being allowed to speak for itself. In his own words, which Liberal parliamentarian Edward St John termed "the voice of Truth which can never be still or silenced" John Jess sheds even more light upon the collision between HMAS Melbourne and HMAS Voyager in 1964, which was the greatest tragedy in Australian peacetime history. A re-examination of the first royal commission, particularly the prohibited publication pages of transcript, sheds light on the collision and the conclusion proposes a reason for the collision that has never previously been advanced. No book comes closer to solving the mystery of this tragedy that cost eighty-two lives. No book has word for word the conversations that went on behind closed doors between politicians and prime ministers and the pressures and influences that existed between the powers that be. If a film were to be made about Voyager, this book would be essential reading as nothing has been glossed over, it has real conversations, real quotes; the true story has finally been told.

Terrorism: The New World War [used book], Lloyd Pettiford and David Harding
2 Terrorism: The New World War [used book]
Lloyd Pettiford and David Harding Australia Arcturus Publishing 2004 1841931543 / 9781841931548 Soft cover Good Book B-format 
With cutting edge analysis of recent error attacks, such as 9/11 and the Bali bomb attack, Terrorism: The New World War offers a timely examination of the complex phenomenon of terrorism and the role it plays in modern society. Exhaustively researched and authoritative in scope, the book includes comprehensive biographies of major terrorist groups and individuals. It discusses in detail the most infamous acts of terror perpetrated from the kidnapping and murder of the Italian prime minister Aldo Moro, to the US-Iranian hostage crisis of 1979. In the light of recent events it also provides a startling look at the possible future of terrorism and its impact on the Western world. Emotions that can overcome people at times of personal, national or global tragedy are often powerful and stark in their simplicity. This book is an attempt to explore the belief that problems rarely have easy answers and to show that terrorism today is complicated and threatening reality.
