Book Description: John Singe first arrived at Thursday Island in 1970. Peopled by many wild and wonderful characters, this tropical paradise proved to be no place for the faint-hearted. As a diver, John Singe survived shark attack and frequently faced the Strait’s unpredictable moods when sailing the waters from Cape York to Papua New Guinea. Hunting and fishing expeditions also provided him with an unexpected education.As well as charting one man’s Indiana Jones-like adventures, this entertaining book voyages across contemporary Islander cultures and lifestyles. Much more than a travel saga, My Island Home traces the rewarding journey of its author who continues to be drawn irresistibly to the gregarious people and unlimited horizons of Torres Strait.

Book Description: For four decades, Jeremy Beckett has shone a light on previously marginalized fields of life. While the many went in search of “traditional culture,” Beckett was fascinated to learn how people who often lacked wider recognition of their Aboriginality went about their lives. In the process he changed our understandings of those people and highlighted the issues they confronted. He has enriched our appreciation of the diversity of Indigenous identities and experiences, and his knowledge is shared in this book. He was an expert witness leading up to the Mabo decision and has brought Australian Indigenous studies into a world framework. His work continues to be influential to many: those who revisit his ideas here and those who are newer to his work.
