Teitl yn y gyfres o gyfrolau byr a chyflym Stori Sydyn. Ganed Howard Marks ym Mynydd Cynffig ond doedd fawr o gariad ganddo at Gymru na'r Gymraeg. Ac yn sicr, pan gafodd ei garcharu yn yr Unol Daleithiau, ac yntau'n brif smyglwr cyffuriau'r byd, doedd Cymru ddim yn rhy awyddus i'w arddel yntau chwaith. Ond mae ei berthynas a gwlad ei febyd wedi newid ers iddo gael ei ryddhau.

This is a story lost to history for over two hundred years; a dirty secret of failure, fatal misjudgement and desperate measures which the British Empire chose to forget almost as soon as it was over. In the wake of its most crushing defeat, the America War of Independence, the British Government began shipping its criminals to West Africa. Some were transported aboard ships going to pick up their other human cargo: African slaves. When they arrived at their destination, soldiers and even convicts were forced to work in the region's slave-trading forts guarding the human merchandise. In a few short years the scheme brought death, wholesale desertions, mutiny, piracy and even murder. Some of the most egregious crimes were not committed by the exported criminals but by those sent out to guard them. Acts of wanton desperation added to rash transgressions as those whom society had already thrown out realised that they had nothing left to lose. As jail and prison hulks overflowed, and as every other alternative settlement proved unsuitable, the British Government gambled and decided to send its criminals as far away as possible, to the great south land sighted years before by Captain James Cook. Out of the embers of the African debacle came the modern nation of Australia. The extraordinary tale is now being told for the first time - how a small band of good-for-nothing members of the British Empire spanned the world from America, to Africa, and on to Australia, profoundly if utterly unwittingly changing history.

Australian English is perhaps best known for its colourful slang, but the variety is much richer than slang alone. This collection provides a detailed account of Australian English by bringing together leading scholars of this English variety. These scholars provide a comprehensive overview of Australian English’s distinctive features and outline cutting-edge research into the variation and change of English in Australia. Organised thematically, this volume explores the ways in which Australian English differs from other varieties of English, as well as examining regional, social and stylistic variation within the variety. The volume first explores particular structural features where Australian English differentiates itself from other English varieties. There are chapters on phonetics and phonology, socio-phonetics, lexicon and discourse-pragmatics as these elements are core to understanding any variety of English, especially within the World Englishes paradigm. It then considers what are arguably the most salient aspects of variation within Australian English and finally focuses on historical, attitudinal and planning aspects of Australian English. This volume provides a thorough account of Australian English and its users as complex, diverse and worthy of study. Perhaps more importantly, this volume’s scholars provide a reimagining of Australian English and the paradigm through which future scholars may proceed.

Maverick Archdeacon Robert Hammond, Minister of St. Barnabas’ Church, established Hammond’s Pioneer Homes during the depths of the Great Depression to provide affordable homes for struggling families. By 1940, Hammondville, on the outskirts of Sydney, Australia, had 110 homes, a school, a general store, a post office, and a church, and was a nationally recognized model for small-scale land settlement. Today, HammondCare serves a wide range of people with complex health and aged-care needs through dementia and aged-care services, palliative care, rehabilitation, and mental health programs. This unusual and surprising company history traces a fascinating journey, beginning with an archdeacon with big dreams in Depression-era Sydney and ending with HammondCare's transformation into one of the most respected health and aged-care providers in Australia.
