Using previously secret government documents, The Chameleon Crown re-writes the history of Australia’s relationship with the United Kingdom and the Crown. It makes clear that the Australian States remained colonial dependencies of the British Crown until 1986 when the Australia Act was passed. It was the ‘Queen of the United Kingdom’, not the ‘Queen of Australia’ who reigned over them. For many decades historians, lawyers and politicians believed that the British Government’s role in advising the Queen on State matters was simply a formality and that the British merely provided the ‘channel of communication’ for State advice. This book reveals for the first time the true extent of the independent role played by the British Government in State affairs as well as the significant role of the Queen. The Chameleon Crown takes the reader behind the scenes into the confidential negotiations between the States, the Commonwealth, the British Government and Buckingham Palace on the termination of the colonial links between the States and the United Kingdom. This was a battle of high politics, played by the likes of Whitlam, Murphy, Bjelke-Petersen, Wran, Fraser, Hawke, in which the sovereignty of the States was at stake. It is essential reading for those interested in Australian politics, history and the monarchy. A NSW Sesquicentenary of Responsible Government publication.

Πριν από δέκα χρόνια ο Όλεθρος ήρθε στον κόσμο. Εμφανίστηκε σαν μια εκτυφλωτική λάμψη στον ουρανό και χάρισε υπεράνθρωπες δυνάμεις σε μια πλειάδα καθημερινών ανθρώπων. Πλημμυρισμένος από φόβο και δέος, ο υπόλοιπος κόσμος άρχισε να αποκαλεί τους ανθρώπους αυτούς Επικούς. Οι Επικοί, όμως, δεν είναι φιλικά διακείμενοι προς την ανθρωπότητα. Μαζί με τις απίστευτες ικανότητές τους απέκτησαν και το πάθος της εξουσίας και η απόλυτη εξουσία προϋποθέτει τη συντριβή του ελεύθερου ανθρώπινου πνεύματος. Στις μέρες μας, στο σημείο όπου κάποτε βρισκόταν η πόλη του Σικάγο, ο πανίσχυρος Επικός που είναι γνωστός ως Ατσαλόκαρδος κυβερνά ως τύραννος, προικισμένος με απίστευτη φυσική δύναμη και την ικανότητα να ελέγχει τα στοιχεία της φύσης. Οι φήμες λένε πως οι σφαίρες δεν μπορούν να τον βλάψουν, πως καμιά λεπίδα δεν μπορεί να τον πληγώσει, πως η φωτιά δεν τον αγγίζει... Είναι άτρωτος, ανίκητος. Κανείς δεν τολμά να του αντισταθεί. Κανείς… εκτός από τους Τιμωρούς. Οι Τιμωροί είναι μια μυστηριώδης ομάδα απλών ανθρώπων που έχουν αφιερώσει τη ζωή τους στη μελέτη των Επικών. Σκοπός τους είναι να ανακαλύψουν τα αδύνατα σημεία τους και να καταφέρουν κάποτε να τους αφανίσουν. Ο νεαρός Ντέιβιντ θέλει όσο τίποτα στον κόσμο να γίνει μέλος των Τιμωρών. Λίγο μετά την άφιξή του στο Σικάγο, ο Ατσαλόκαρδος δολοφόνησε τον πατέρα του Ντέιβιντ. Όπως ακριβώς και οι Τιμωροί, ο Ντέιβιντ μελετά εδώ και χρόνια τους Επικούς, καταστρώνοντας σχέδια για την εξάλειψή τους. Το μεγάλο του όπλο στην προσπάθεια αυτή, όμως, δεν είναι κάποιο αντικείμενο αλλά μια ανάμνηση, που οι Τιμωροί έχουν ανάγκη για να εκπληρώσουν την αποστολή τους. Έχει δει τον Ατσαλόκαρδο να ματώνει. Κι η καρδιά του διψά για εκδίκηση.

Three engrossing historical novels—in one volume—bring the Plantagenets and the splendor and scheming of twelfth-century Europe to vivid life. In The Fatal Crown, set against the seething political intrigues of twelfth-century Europe, two royal heirs surrender to passion as they vie for the most glittering, treacherous prize of all: the English throne. At twenty-five, the widowed Maud must marry once again, this time to fourteen-year-old Geoffrey Plantagenet. But it is with Stephen of Blois, Maud’s fiercest rival for the British throne, that the headstrong princess discovers the true meaning of desire. In Beloved Enemy, Aquitaine is under the French king’s safekeeping, and Eleanor, the Duke of Aquitaine’s eldest daughter, knows she must wed Prince Louis in order to insure the future of her beloved duchy. Fiercely independent, filled with untapped desire, the woman who would be queen must provide Louis VII, her monkish husband, with heirs. But it is young Henry of Anjou who catches Eleanor’s eye—and sets fire to her heart. And in Gilded Cages, Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry Plantagenet—whose marriage was born of power, politics, and an all-consuming, fiery love—rule a vast kingdom. At first they work to unify and repair their war-torn lands—before being torn apart by intrigue, adultery, and deadly revenge.
