This is a personal look at one life, lived by an ordinary guy, who has visited some extraordinary places. From Scotland to Saudi Arabia, Allan M. Jack’s autobiography takes you on a journey through education, marriage, geology, apartheid, travel and everything in between. Allan sets the scene with stories of his parents and grandparents, including descriptions of his Scottish home village, Gartmore. This is followed by a chronicle of his schooldays and a somewhat chequered and chaotic career at Glasgow University and the University of Cape Town in South Africa, with asides including love and marriage, youth organisations and various sporting activities! Journey with Allan, his wife and their three children as they face the reality of apartheid in South Africa for eleven years and, after a particularly close-to-home bombing experience, are driven back home to the UK for sixteen years. Engage in an ongoing family history, into which Allan weaves stories of his travels around Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the USA, Chile, Baku, Kazakhstan and Singapore, and finally ending up in Saudi Arabia where he joins a small junior mining company. Written to give his descendants an idea of what he did with his life, Allan’s book will appeal to those interested in travelling, exotic lands, history and biographies.

Northern Australia is one of few tropical places left on Earth in which biodiversity—and the ecological processes underpinning that biodiversity—is still relatively intact. However, scientific knowledge of that biodiversity is still in its infancy and the region remains a frontier for biological discovery. The butterfly and diurnal moth assemblages of the area, and their intimate associations with vascular plants (and sometimes ants), exemplify these points. However, the opportunity to fill knowledge gaps is quickly closing: proposals for substantial development and exploitation of Australia’s north will inevitably repeat the ecological devastation that has occurred in temperate southern Australia—loss of species, loss of ecological communities, fragmentation of populations, disruption of healthy ecosystem function and so on—all of which will diminish the value of the natural heritage of the region before it is fully understood and appreciated. Written by several experts in the field, the main purpose of this atlas is to compile a comprehensive inventory of the butterflies and diurnal moths of northern Australia to form the scientific baseline against which the extent and direction of change can be assessed in the future. Such information will also assist in identifying the region’s biological assets, to inform policy and management agencies and to set priorities for biodiversity conservation.

Colonial architecture and urbanism carved its way through space: ordering and classifying the built environment, while projecting the authority of European powers across Africa in the name of science and progress. The built urban fabric left by colonial powers attests to its lingering impacts in shaping the present and the future trajectory of postcolonial cities in Africa. Colonial Architecture and Urbanism explores the intersection between architecture and urbanism as discursive cultural projects in Africa. Like other colonial institutions such as the courts, police, prisons, and schools, that were crucial in establishing and maintaining political domination, colonial architecture and urbanism played s pivotal role in shaping the spatial and social structures of African cities during the 19th and 20th centuries. Indeed, it is the cultural destination of colonial architecture and urbanism and the connection between them and colonialism that the volume seeks to critically address. The contributions drawn from different interdisciplinary fields map the historical processes of colonial architecture and urbanism and bring into sharp focus the dynamic conditions in which colonial states, officials, architects, planners, medical doctors and missionaries mutually constructed a hierarchical and exclusionary built environment that served the wider colonial project in Africa.
