You are an 18th-century convict faced with a fate potentially worse than death: to be sent to one of the new English colonies in Australia, where you will face hardship, isolation and great danger at the razor edge of colonial enterprise. "You Wouldn't Want To Be" is a constantly-growing library of exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived. Humorous cartoon-style illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events.
First published in 1990, this book presents an original and comprehensive overview of Australian economic thought. The authors stress, by way of introduction, the many important innovative contributions Australian economists have made to thought worldwide. As the argument develops, the work of major figures is discussed in detail in addition to the role of different journals and economic societies.
Whether one's problem is choosing a seat on public transport, acting passive with the opposite sex, or tiptoeing through the minefields of etiquette, this tongue-in-cheek funny guide to the hazards of Australian social life has just enough truth to keep one amused, and somewhat horrified right to the end.
