Bark

Anthony Lawrence

Exploring the Australian land-
scape, Anthony Lawrence’s
12th collection of poetry seizes
the harshness of rural exis-
tence without overlooking the
minute, beautiful details of the
surrounding world. Filled with
a rich lyrical vein, the poems
meditate on all aspects of life
from native birds and fish to
deeply moving personal reflec-
tions of family life. Alternating
between formality and free
verse, this collection reveals
an imagination fascinated with
figurative language and the
creation of poetry.

Anthony Lawrenceis the recip-
ient of the New South Wales
Premier’s Kenneth Slessor Prize
for Poetry, the Judith Wright
Calanthe Poetry Prize, and an
Australia Council Fellowship.

books of poetry, including

Sleep of a Learning Man.

The Balcony

David Brooks

Believing that erotic love is
one of the highest forms of
contemplation, this stunning
new collection from one of the
quiet masters of modern
Australian poetry explores the
depths of learning to live life
to the fullest. These poems
contemplate all that is beauti-
ful in the world—and much
that is not—and transform it
into something sacred. From
the snowy balconies of Central
Europe to the white-hot sub-
urbs of Sydney, these contem-
porary poems encompass the
globe in its endless search for
enriched life.

David Brooksis a professor of
Australian literature at the
University of Sydney and the
author of The Double Looking
Glassand The Fern Tattoo.

Skin Painting

Elizabeth Hodgson

Brave, haunting, and evoca-
tive, this powerful volume
presents its poetry in the form
of a memoir. From the poet’s
early experiences in an insti-
tution and the effect of this on
her family to the illustration of
her strength and independence
as an adult, this biographical
collection helps make the
Aboriginal experience accessi-
ble and resonant. Exploring
themes of art, identity, sexuali-
ty, and loneliness, this com-
pendium is both universal
and intimate.

Elizabeth Hodgsonhas been
featured in various magazines.
She sits on the panel of the
New South Wales Ministry for
the Arts Advisory Council, the
Indigenous Arts Reference
Group, and facilitates, men-
tors, and writes for the Aborig-
inal Oral History Project.

The Decline
of American
Liberalism

Arthur A. Ekirch, Jr.

“An intelligent and important book. . .
a serious historical interpretation
which is at the same highly readable.”
—The New York Times

“Brilliant, penetrating, and often illu-
minating study of American political
history.”

—New Republic

“Ekirch has contributed a stimulating interpretation and survey
of American development. His chapters on the growth of the gar-
rison state and the cult of national loyalty are a devastating com-
mentary which has the virtue of relating these developments to
long-term trends in this society.”

—The Nation

From the Revolutionary War and World Wars I and II to the
Great Depression and civil rights battles, this chronicle takes a
historical look at how principles such as individual liberty and
democratic rule have weathered the last few centuries. The
growth of state empowerment and its effect on autonomy and
the economy is also discussed.

Arthur A. Ekirch Jr.was a leading scholar of American intellectu-
al history and a professor emeritus of history at the State
University of New York–Albany. He is the author of numerous
books, including The American Democratic Tradition, The
Civilian and the Military, andMan and Nature in America.
