The Warriors

KNOCKABOUT MELBOURNE TAXI DRIVER JACK VAN DUYN HAS HIT ROCK BOTTOM. HIS TAXI BUSINESS HAS GONE BUST, HE’S BEEN EVICTED AGAIN, AND HIS FRIENDS HAVE EMIGRATED.

The mundane process of applying for the dole and finding a place to live unexpectedly propel Jack onto the front line of the gender wars. He is forced to go back to uni and enrol in Gender Studies, and finds himself enlisted to infiltrate the Warriors, a secretive men’s group dedicated to harassing women who’ve separated from their violent partners. Their prime target is his new co-tenant Anita, a sex-worker who Jack commits to protecting – because he is falling in love with her.

As the odd assortment of eccentrics and chancers in the decaying Carlton mansion he’s moved into descend into chaotic conflict, Jack’s mission turns deadly when the Warriors unleash vicious revenge attacks on women.

The Warriors explores the appalling realities of male violence against women, the twisted mentalities that impel otherwise ordinary men to extremes of brutality and murder, and the challenges facing decent men caught in a bewildering maze of rapidly changing gender roles and expectations.

PAPERBACK

The Spirit of Pehdzeh Ki

Maintaining a sustainable lifestyle and following traditional values in the face of a barrage of mining and Canadian business interests is quite a challenge.

This book is a comprehensive account of the history, lifestyle and values of a small Slavey Dene community in the Northwest Territories of Canada. The community is located north of the 60th parallel in the middle of the Deh Cho (Mackenzie River) Valley. It is about the history of the Dene people in attempting to maintain their traditional lifestyle and as much as possible sovereignty over their land. The Dene have a long tradition in the north dating back almost 30,000 years. These traditional people have maintained the integrity of their land by respecting what it has to offer. For the Dene life is part of the land and its maintenance is important for the future. The Dene see the land as providing for their people a spirit which became a way of life.

About the Author

This book has been written by an Australia couple who as adult educators first lived in Pehdzeh Ki family years ago with their young family. It gives an account of the day-to-day experiences of this family as they worked in the community. They learned about sustainability and the traditional knowledge needed for survival in a completely different environment to what their experiences were in Australia. In return they set about helping to develop some of the skills and knowledge needed by the local people to operate in a European system. The community were attempting to achieve this without the loss of their traditional values or dignity while maintaining their Dene language.
