M.C. Ricklefs
2018 432pp

Unmarked Graves
Death and Survival in the Anti-Communist Violence in East Java, Indonesia
Vanessa Hearman
2018 288pp
The wave of anti-communist violence that swept across Indonesia in 1965-66 produced a particularly high death toll in East Java. It also transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of survivors, who faced decades of persecution, imprisonment and violence. In this book, Vannessa Hearman examines the human cost and the community impact of the violence on people from different sides of the political divide.

To coincide with the release of mathematician and award-winning children's book author Richard Evan Schwartz’s latest book Life on the Infinite Farm, we’ve been looking at books which encourage children to dip their toes into the wonderful world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Schwartz’s fifth book for children, Life on the Infinite Farm teaches about infinity and curved space through stories of whimsical farm animals. Join Gracie, the shoe-loving cow with infinitely many feet, Hammerwood, the gum-loving crocodile with an endless mouth, and their friends as they navigate the challenges that come with being infinitely large. 

Did you ever wonder why some insects can walk on water? Or how the Ancient Egyptians made mummies? Are you curious about why a guitar sounds different from a flute? Gather some everyday materials from around your home and find out the answers with 50 kid-approved science activities from CSIRO Publishing. Discover more about the world of science with Hands-On Science by making dancing slime, rubbery bones, a ping pong ball shooter, ghastly ghostly photos, fizzy dinosaur eggs and a lemon battery.

Zobi and the Zoox tells the tale of Zobi, a brave rhizobia bacterium who teams up with a family of slow but steady zoox (zooxanthellae) when her home comes under threat from a warming ocean and as the coral bleaches, everyone begins to starve. 

Zobi and the Zoox joins CSIRO’s growing collection of books for primary school-aged children which includes Phasmid, The Great Lizard Trek, Bouncing Back and The Squid, the Vibrio and the Moon which is publishing early in 2019.

November sees the release of Academic Studies Press’s long-anticipated Russian Cuisine in Exile. Translated into English from the original Russian, Russian Cuisine in Exile defies genre to present an exploration of what it meant to be a Russian émigré in the 1980s.

Made up of humorous cultural essays and interspersed with traditional Russian recipes, the book explores the connection food has to culture, both at large and specifically émigré, whilst providing an amusing look at the intersection between Russian life and the American cultural landscape in which the original writers, Pyotr Vail and Alexander Genis, found themselves existing.

The original Russian text became a staple of émigré communities and Soviet residents alike, and this new English translation features extensive commentary by the translators and editors, Angela Brintlinger and Thomas Feerick, allowing an entirely new community access to a funny, contemplative, and instructive book that is filled with glimpses of what it means to be Russian, regardless of where you are in the world.

In celebration of the book’s publication, we tried to recreate one of the classic Russian recipes that the book provides instruction on – one that the whole Eurospan office might be on board with! Our choice was the sharlotka, an indulgent dessert not unlike a bread and butter pudding. If you’re feeling braver, though, traditional recipes throughout include mushroom meatballs, chicken broth, the perfect garlic aioli, and the most Russian dish of them all – cabbage soup!

Sharlotka seemed to be an obvious choice for a wintery Monday at the Eurospan office – sweet, hearty, and perfect with a cup of tea. There’s also a recipe for the proper way to make tea included in the book as well, just in case you needed a refresher! Judging by the empty tray in the kitchen, Vail and Genis were on to a winner with this staple dessert…

And as Vail and Genis summarise themselves: “Of course, no one gets skinny eating sharlotka. And they say that eating a lot of bread is harmful. On the other hand, life is generally a harmful thing — after all, it always leads to death. But once you’ve eaten a piece of sharlotka, that inevitable destination seems somehow less frightening.”

Russian Cuisine in Exile from Academic Studies Press is available to order in paperback on the Eurospan bookstore.
