Dear blog readers,
Please note the reprint of David Walker's seminal work on fear in Australian culture, a work that has been discussed at length in the June 2009 special issue of Antipodes. See JF Vernay and Nathanael O'Reilly.
As an upcoming independent book publishing house based in New Delhi, India, SSS Publications aims at promoting "high quality, scholarly, student friendly and easily accessible books while maintaining high academic & literary merit and international production standards to advance knowledge." (Vimal Kumar Sharma, Marketing Manager)
In November 2009, they have published the 2nd (Special Indian) Edition of David Walker's Anxious Nation: Australia and the Rise of Asia, 1850-1939 that has won the prestigious Ernest Scott Prize for History in 2001 and is "one of the best known works on Australian history and culture". (Vimal Kumar Sharma)
It has been noted that "Recent attacks on Indian students in Australia have attracted extensive and often very hostile commentary in India. Accusations that Australia is a racist society have resurfaced...Anxious Nation provides a frank and detailed history of Australia’s representations of Asia, including India, from the mid-nineteenth century to the outbreak of the Second World War. In doing so the book provides Indian readers with a comprehensive account of the making of the Australian nation, not least its often awkward and always sensitive relationship with Asia."
