Australia And New Zealand As The Home Of A New Sub-race
Adherents of theosophy, the esoteric philosophy popular at the turn of the 20th century, believed that science and religion could be reconciled, and that the plan of the universe could and should be understood, and that it was humanity's duty to adapt to that plan. Here, in a series of lectures delivered in Sydney, Australia, in 1915, the renowned spiritualist Charles W. Leadbeater, a leader of theosophical thought, celebrates the new "sub-race" of humanity come to joyful life in the immigrant nations of America, Australia, and New Zealand, where, freed from the social shackles of Old World Europe, races and classes were intermingling to create a new kind of culture, which would in turn reshape the world. Far-reaching and perceptive, this is an extraordinary little volume of social insight and criticism. British author CHARLES WEBSTER LEADBEATER (1854-1934) was ordained as an Anglican priest, but later joined the prominent Theosophical Society and traveled to India to study alternative spiritual and occult practices, eventually settling into his life as a clairvoyant and author. His other works include Man Visible and Invisible and The Science of the Sacrament.
A Larger Australia
In the ABC 2015 Boyer Lectures, one of Australia's most influential foreign policy experts examines our country's place in the world.
For most of Australia's history, the world was run by nations like our own. But now the international order that has prevailed since the end of the Second World War is fraying. Global institutions are showing their age. Our great and powerful friends are becoming less great and powerful. Rising powers such as China are challenging the old order. Wealth and power are shifting eastwards, towards us. The tyranny of distance is being replaced by the predicament of proximity.
Award-winning historian and author Michael Fullilove argues that we must shape our international environment. This requires us to be smarter and shrewder â€“ but also larger. Australia needs to be a big, confident, ambitious country, open to the world, with an effective political system, the instruments to influence the balance of power and the confidence to have our own head of state. Stirring, timely and important, A Larger Australia tells us it is time for Australians to think big.
The ABC Boyer Lectures is an annual series of lectures delivered by prominent Australians who are invited by the ABC Board to express their thoughts on major social, cultural, scientific or political issues. The ABC Boyer Lectures are named after the late Sir Richard Boyer, a former chairman of the ABC.

Memoir Of The Rev. Sydney Smith 2 Volume Set
First published in 1855 and reissued here in the second edition of that year, this two-volume work celebrates the life of the author, wit and clergyman Sydney Smith (1771-1845). A founder of the second Edinburgh Review, Smith is best remembered for his entertaining observations and witticisms. The work comprises a memoir, written by Smith's daughter Saba Holland (1802-66), and a selection of letters, edited by Sarah Austin (1793-1867). Together, the volumes offer private insights into a man who lived much of his life in the public eye. Sharing her father's sense of humour, Holland peppers her memoir in Volume 1 with many of his best jokes, while also emphasising his character as a compassionate clergyman, loving father and dutiful friend. Volume 2 continues with Smith's letters, selected for the light that they shed on his character.
