George Gittoes defies categorisation as his life defies belief. One thing is certain: Gittoes is the greatest Australian hero working today and his epic story must be told. Equal parts artist and warrior, George is world-famous for waging war on war with art, circus, photography and film. "Soldiers die for flags. For me it is art," he says. George has been shot, stabbed, bombed, beaten, tortured, drowned and jailed. He has worked with Andy Warhol, dined with Fidel Castro, plotted with Julian Assange, been feted by Mandela, blessed by Mother Theresa, sneezed on by the Dalai Lama. Blood Mystic begins with George flying back to Jalalabad carrying a letter from the Taliban threatening to chop off his head and show the decapitation on live TV. George's mission is to film with street kids in the most dangerous city on earth - the Ghostbuster street exorcists, the Snow Monkey ice cream boys, the urchin girls and kuchi kids, the child gangsters with razor blades under their lips. As the danger grows, George reflects deeply on a life less ordinary - his boyhood being groomed as a gangster, his escape to New York, the Yellow House art revolutions, crazy brave adventures in outback Australia, ghetto America, jungle Nicaragua, war-torn Cambodia, badlands Baghdad, hollow Bosnia... and beyond. This is a specially formatted fixed layout ebook that retains the look and feel of the print book.

"Making art is quite therapeutic", Tracey Moffatt once said of herself. This brief statement reveals much of the artist's personality and above all about her manner of interpreting the artistic experience, a practice that frequently refers to her personal episodes and events. An Aborigine by birth, Tracey Moffatt grew up as a foster child in a white family in line with the policy of the time, and she quickly became fascinated by the pop culture of those years. Images drawn from magazines, cinema and television began to form the symbolic universe that would become a point of reference in most of her work, alongside the ever-present and in part autobiographical theme of ostracism and segregation experienced in all its aspects: racial, social, sexual. Childhood memories return, blending with mass culture, and there is no longer any difference. Everything mixes in a non-linear narrative built on several narrative and emotive levels. Elements of a story are gathered, but not the thread that binds them together. The photographic narratives of Moffat draw their essence in part from the empty spaces dividing one image from the next. This complete monograph brings together nearly 150 photographs, including a series of film-stills produced by Moffat from 1989 to the present.

When the 2016 Oscar acting nominations all went to whites for the second consecutive year, #OscarsSoWhite became a trending topic. Yet these enduring racial biases afflict not only the Academy Awards, but also Hollywood as a whole. Why do actors of color, despite exhibiting talent and bankability, continue to lag behind white actors in presence and prominence? Reel Inequality examines the structural barriers minority actors face in Hollywood, while shedding light on how they survive in a racist industry. The book charts how white male gatekeepers dominate Hollywood, breeding a culture of ethnocentric storytelling and casting. Nancy Wang Yuen interviewed nearly a hundred working actors and drew on published interviews with celebrities, such as Viola Davis, Chris Rock, Gina Rodriguez, Oscar Isaac, Lucy Liu, and Ken Jeong, to explore how racial stereotypes categorize and constrain actors. Their stories reveal the day-to-day racism actors of color experience in talent agents’ offices, at auditions, and on sets. Yuen also exposes sexist hiring and programming practices, highlighting the structural inequalities that actors of color, particularly women, continue to face in Hollywood. This book not only conveys the harsh realities of racial inequality in Hollywood, but also provides vital insights from actors who have succeeded on their own terms, whether by sidestepping the system or subverting it from within. Considering how their struggles impact real-world attitudes about race and diversity, Reel Inequality follows actors of color as they suffer, strive, and thrive in Hollywood.

There is ample literature detailing lack of interest girls particularly in their later teen years show in computing generally and the subsequent decline in the number of women entering the IT workforce. In 2007, to address this problem, we trialled a new and revolutionary program designed to excite girls' interest in Information Technology (IT); we called our program 'Digital Divas'. As far as we know there has only been one other longer term intervention program which was run in the United Kingdom, designed to change girls' perceptions of IT. Our program was unique because it ran in schools as part of the school curriculum. The underlying philosophy of Digital Divas was that if we provided educationally sound materials that tapped into the interest of girls, delivered in all-girl classes within the school curriculum we could change girls' perceptions of IT careers. The pilot program was a success and this led us to design a larger project the outcomes of which are the subject of this book. The authors all have backgrounds in secondary teaching and three also have an IT background. The project ran for three years and was implemented in nine secondary schools in Victoria and one in New South Wales. Digital Divas ran usually as an elective over 10-12 weeks or a school semester and all the class were girls only. Many of the schools elected to run the program for more than one semester. We collected a significant amount of pre and post qualitative and quantitative data from both teachers and students at the school. We also conducted a number of focus groups at the schools one or two years after the girls had undertaken Digital Divas. As a result of the data collected we are able to conclusively demonstrate among other things that such a program can increase girls' self-efficacy with IT, change their stereotypical image of IT being only for men and boys and have them seriously consider IT as a career option. This book details the rationale and motivation we had for designing Digital Divas, the evaluation planning and framework which underpinned both the design of the program and the research, the research approach and data gathered and the results. We also discuss the wider impact of the program. Finally wed reflect on what has been learned, the things that worked, those that did not and what surprised us in the hope that others may benefit from our experience.
