✏Remarkable Australian Farm Machines Book Summary : This book tells the story of the men, machines and equipment developed for Australian agriculture. It traces developments ranging from broadacre cultivation to garden rotaries, to prickly pear destruction, to auto headers, to banana harvesting for paper making. Contemporary advertising sprinkled through the book provides a backdrop for the people, companies and products that have been important to our farming history. Did you know that tractor hands-free steering was first commercialised by Beeline in Moree, NSW? That the worlds biggest paddock cleaning machines are made in Banana? That single-pass grain and straw harvesting began in Western Australia? Dr Graeme Quick, is an internationally-recognised expert on farm equipment. He has worked on farm machinery engineering in over thirty countries and holds fourteen patents, two of which are incorporated into grain harvesters world-wide. This is the companion volume to "Australian Tractors, Indigenous Tractors and Self-propelled Machines in Rural Australia", the definitive reference on the 40-plus Australian manufacturers of tractors and self-propelled machines. He has published half a dozen other books. This one fits a unique place in documenting remarkable machines in the Australian economic and historical context.

✏Consuming Whiteness Book Summary : The "White Australia Policy" - the country's historical policy that favored immigration to Australia from various European countries, especially Britain - has largely been discussed with regard only to its political-ideological perspective. No account was taken of the central problem of racist societalization, i.e. the everyday production and reproduction of race as a social relation (doing race) supported by broad sections of the population. This comprehensive study of Australian racism and the historical "white sugar" campaign shows that the latter was only able to achieve success because it was embedded in a widespread white Australia culture that found expression in all spheres of life.

✏Furphy Book Summary : 'Furphy' is a uniquely Australian word. The Australian National Dictionary defines it as 'a water cart' and 'rumor, or an absurd story'. But how did the family name of John Furphy, an iron founder in Shepparton, come to have this extraordinary double meaning? For Australians on the land the water cart is life sustaining and indispensable, and the firm of John Furphy is the most famous of its makers. In Victoria and the Riverina, by the time of the First World War, the Furphy was the water cart. This book challenges some widely held misconceptions about the origin of the word and gives a full and authentic account of the history of the making and marketing of the Furphy. Furphy water carts were made for over 90 years. They are now collectors' items, and tank ends, with intriguing moral and political messages in cast iron, are prized as wall plaques. In the eyes of later generations they symbolise a rural past of simple verities and individual effort.
