Adding Value to the Farmers’ Trees: Community forestry in Indonesia
Community-based commercial forestry (CBCF) is seen worldwide as a way of reversing the loss of forests. Linking reafforestation with commercial opportunities for rural communities seems a logical strategy. Over the past 10 years, a multi-disciplinary team of over 30 Australian and Indonesian researchers has addressed this across five districts within Indonesia. In this 128 page paperback, project team leader Dr Digby Race and his colleagues have drawn together the threads of their research and presented it in plain English. Exclusive to em PRESS, inc p&h

My Father's Son - award winning autobiography by Ric Throssell
My Father's Son was runner-up in the National Book Council Banjo Awards for Australian Literature.

In 1997, em PRESS published a revised edition, which includes a new final chapter that uncovers the information in top secret files held by ASIO on Throssell. Despite Throssell's claims to the contrary, a recent book advances evidence he was part of a Russian 'spy-ring' during the Cold War. Inc p &h and GST.
