Pat Ritter (co-author) of Closing The Gap was a police officer. His concern was when teenagers ran away from home. At first he didn’t have any answers however after attending college to learn about a subject ‘behaviour’, his lecturer Bob O’Sullivan and Pat decided to write a book to help parents overcome issues with their teenagers.
This book was bought about by frustration. There had to be an answer to the issue of teenagers running away from home. Pat discovered the answer by attending college to learn skills in communication, conflict resolution and problem solving.
He used these newly learned skills to educate parents of teenagers with great success.
Finally when he’d discovered the holy grail of parent/teenager communication issues, he with Bob wrote and published ‘Closing The Gap’.
In 1891 Australian history changed forever because of ‘The Great Shearers Strike of 1891’ when shearers from across the country went on strike for better working conditions and wages. Joe Ryan was one of those shearers. This is his story.
“Click Go the Shears” is a traditional Australian folk song. The song details a day’s work for a sheep shearer in the days before machine shears. The enduring popularity of this song reflects the traditional role that the wool industry has played in Australian life. The song describes the various roles in the shearing shed, including the “ringer”, the “boss of the board”, the “colonial experience man” and the “tar boy”. After the day’s shearing, the “old shearer” takes his cheque and heads to the local pub for a drinking session.

The theme of this book is crime and reality, reality of the dysfunctioning of our institutions, which we are a part of. The story is about a Hindu girl who gets raped and murdered by the son of a local constable. The constable, in efforts to prevent his son from getting jailed, contacts his cousin brother who compellingly helps him in building a false case. He puts all the blame on a Muslim prisoner with extreme psychotic behavior. As this false case builds up, the politicians and the media together start to concoct a web of lies of their own. So a battle erupts between fair justice and political dominance, not knowing who’d win…
I’m sure you’ve found that premise interesting; you can know more about the story from my site.
