Leviathans at the Gold Mine is an ethnographic account of the relationship between the Ipili, an indigenous group in Papua New Guinea, and the large international gold mine operating on their land. It was not until 1939 that Australian territorial patrols reached the Ipili. By 1990, the third largest gold mine on the planet was operating in their valley. Alex Golub examines how "the mine" and "the Ipili" were brought into being in relation to one another, and how certain individuals were authorized to speak for the mine and others to speak for the Ipili. Considering the relative success of the Ipili in their negotiations with a multinational corporation, Golub argues that a unique conjuncture of personal relationships and political circumstances created a propitious moment during which the dynamic and fluid nature of Ipili culture could be used to full advantage. As that moment faded away, social problems in the valley increased. The Ipili now struggle with the extreme social dislocation brought about by the massive influx of migrants and money into their valley.

The Tasmania Reef was the richest gold discovery anywhere in Australia in the 1870s and 1880s, and Beaconsfield grew to become Tasmania’s third biggest town. In today’s money, some $3 Billion came out of Beaconsfield over the life of the Tasmania mine. This book is a first-hand account of the discovery of gold and how the town was established. The narrator is a composite of the writings of around a dozen miners who were there – and describes the mines, the people and the events of the early years, as Beaconsfield grew and changed from a tent city to become a proud, innovative and community-conscious urban society.

The ships of the world are under attack, attacks so sudden and vicious that many ships are lost without a single distress call. The navies of the world start a frenzied search, but even these ships disappear without a trace. Enter the Event Group, the most secret organization in U.S. history. Armed with proof that history is repeating itself, the Group finds themselves in the grasp of an insane genius straight out of the pages of Jules Verne. They are up against the descendent of the man who was the inspiration for the captain of a vessel known to the world as Nautilus. Legend comes to life in the form of Leviathan, the most advanced undersea vessel in history. She will stop at nothing to save the seas and to render justice to humankind for a world that has long been dying, a world Leviathan plans to alter forever, unless the Event Group can stop her!

HELIOS Corporation, the nation’s most powerful gas and energy conglomerate has done something technologically amazing to continue its strangle hold on the oil market. Its engineers have built a vessel that can reach the 1.8 trillion barrels of oil and unlimited natural gas reserves discovered at the base of the Marianas Trench, more than six miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean. The deep-sea mining submarine “Goliath” is a monstrous behemoth armed with rock-slicing blades, stone pulverizing drills, and an armor-plated, crush-resistant hull. With Goliath, mining the oil in this unreachable area of Earth will galvanize HELIOS as the sole owners of the nation’s future energy supply. But during one of the sub’s experimental dives, something goes horribly wrong and now Goliath has disappeared in the trench. Suddenly, the U.S. Pacific Fleet goes on full alert when the nuclear attack sub USS Texas goes missing while pursuing an unknown contact in the waters off Guam. Cargo ships, tankers and a billionaire’s yacht are also reported missing. Floating debris and remains show that these vessels were not ‘lost’ but shredded by something of horrific size and strength – something man-made! Evidence shows that whatever it is, it’s lurking somewhere in the crushing depths of the trench. The Defense Department must now seek the help of Dr. Joe Salas, an anti-military protester and renowned oceanographer whose contempt for the Navy is legendary. He designs the heralded Dolphin submersibles capable of operating deeper and longer than any US Navy submarine in existence. Despite years of mutual contempt, CINCPACFLT, SUBPAC commanders and Salas’ staff are forced to work together to find out how to find and stop this juggernaut which continues to grind the Pacific Ocean into a bloody graveyard.

A Los Angeles Times Best Non-Fiction Book of 2007 A Boston Globe Best Non-Fiction Book of 2007 Amazon.com Editors pick as one of the 10 best history books of 2007 Winner of the 2007 John Lyman Award for U. S. Maritime History, given by the North American Society for Oceanic History "The best history of American whaling to come along in a generation." —Nathaniel Philbrick The epic history of the "iron men in wooden boats" who built an industrial empire through the pursuit of whales. "To produce a mighty book, you must choose a mighty theme," Herman Melville proclaimed, and this absorbing history demonstrates that few things can capture the sheer danger and desperation of men on the deep sea as dramatically as whaling. Eric Jay Dolin begins his vivid narrative with Captain John Smith's botched whaling expedition to the New World in 1614. He then chronicles the rise of a burgeoning industry—from its brutal struggles during the Revolutionary period to its golden age in the mid-1800s when a fleet of more than 700 ships hunted the seas and American whale oil lit the world, to its decline as the twentieth century dawned. This sweeping social and economic history provides rich and often fantastic accounts of the men themselves, who mutinied, murdered, rioted, deserted, drank, scrimshawed, and recorded their experiences in journals and memoirs. Containing a wealth of naturalistic detail on whales, Leviathan is the most original and stirring history of American whaling in many decades.
