In 1905 President Teddy Roosevelt dispatched Secretary of War William Howard Taft on the largest U.S. diplomatic mission in history to Hawaii, Japan, the Philippines, China, and Korea. Roosevelt's glamorous twenty-one year old daughter Alice served as mistress of the cruise, which included senators and congressmen. On this trip, Taft concluded secret agreements in Roosevelt's name. In 2005, a century later, James Bradley traveled in the wake of Roosevelt's mission and discovered what had transpired in Honolulu, Tokyo, Manila, Beijing and Seoul. In 1905, Roosevelt was bully-confident and made secret agreements that he though would secure America's westward push into the Pacific. Instead, he lit the long fuse on the Asian firecrackers that would singe America's hands for a century

In his books, James Bradley has exposed the hidden truths behind America's engagement in Asia. Now comes his most engrossing work yet. Beginning in the 1850s, Bradley introduces us to the prominent Americans who made their fortunes in the China opium trade. As they--good Christians all--profitably addicted millions, American missionaries arrived, promising salvation for those who adopted Western ways. And that was just the beginning. From drug dealer Warren Delano to his grandson Franklin Delano Roosevelt, from the port of Hong Kong to the towers of Princeton University, from the era of Appomattox to the age of the A-Bomb, The China Mirage explores a difficult century that defines US-Chinese relations to this day

It is a trip that brings out the truths of both that symbolic act, and of their lives during war
Destiny in Alice [from the CAAMA Collection]( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the heart of central Australia, the town of Alice Springs has become something of a haven for Lesbians - a place where black and white women mix and mingle, confronting the challenges of loving across racial and cultural gaps. In a delightful parody of a famed TV naturalist, Destiny Attenborough (played by filmmaker Trisha Morton-Thomas) guides us through the habitat and customs of the women who love women in Alice Springs. The origins of the community are traced back to the women's movement against the American base at Pine Gap near Alice Springs in the early 1980s. Three Aboriginal Lesbians provide insight into the complexities of their relationships with other women and with their families. Satirical and funny, this revealing documentary asks the question: is it hard to sustain love when racial and cultural differences seem insurmountable?
The Old Man & The Inland Sea [from the CAAMA Collection]( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stark, barren landscapes around Coober Pedy are stunningly photographed by Warwick Thornton, who also directed this outstanding short film. Thornton went on to achieve international recognition in 2009 for his first feature, SAMSON AND DELILAH. This beautiful documentary is a character study of an old man named Norman Hayes Jagamarra who gave up droving and came to Coober Pedy decades ago to work as an opal-miner. Norman is a 'noodler' - someone who sifts through the mining scrap-heaps looking for remnant opals among the rubble. Although Norman qualifies for the old-age pension, he'd rather not take the 'sit-down money' and prefers to keep noodling and be self-sufficient. Norman's reminiscences reveal his dignity and pride in his work. He reflects on his years in the Coober Pedy area, about the devastating impact of the introduction of alcohol and the social dislocation that followed for many Aboriginal people. He also talks about the greed that disrupted the life on the diggings. Norman's story is backed by a superb original music score by the Dirty Three
