Geoffrey Robertson argues in this book that the Magnitsky movement offers a potent solution to crimes being committed against humanity, whether in America, Russia, China or Belarus. These abuses are a concern for all human beings, and good people are no longer prepared to tolerate them, in their own country or elsewhere in the world. The Magnitsky laws can show the way forward for the global justice movement in the twenty-first century. #aussieauthors #authorsatabbeys #131york #sydney In The Heart, Human Rights, Good People, Special Gifts, Authors, The Twenties, Sydney, Rid, Russia

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK - This makes a worthy addition to the fine Indigenous novels that are appearing on the shelves these days. Heiss, who has shown herself to be an accomplished writer, has produced her best ever with this historical novel set on the Murrumbidgee in the nineteenth century. A novel that shows the disruption and cruelty of colonialism, but celebrates the enduring culture of the Wiradyuri and the indomitable spirit of a brave woman.
