50 Years of Television in Australia by Michael Roberts

Book Description

Australians have enjoyed a love affair with television ever since it first appeared in this country way back in 1956. We love watching it, talking about it - even complaining about it. We're fiercely loyal to our favourite shows and personalities, and just as passionate about those we loathe. The stars are our friends, and characters become members of our extended family. So millions tuned in and cried when Molly died, watched horrified as the Number 96 block came crashing down, laughed at everything from Mavis Bramston to Kath and Kim, and mourned when Hey Hey It's Saturday finally left our screens. This book is a fun and nostalgic celebration of the first 50 years of TV in Australia - the good, the bad and the downright embarrassing. It recalls all the colour, drama and sensations that TV has provided: the stars, the spats, the great (and not-so-great) programs, the on-air gaffes, the unforgettable moments that had us all talking at work or school the next day. It's a book for everyone that's ever owned a TV set. And isn't that just about all of us?

Long Depression by Michael Roberts Long Depression, Paperback (July 2016)

"[The author] argues that the global economy remains in the throes of a depression. Making the case that the profitability of capital is too low, and the debt built up before the Great Recession too high, [he] presents his case that this depression will persist until the profitability of capital is restored through yet another slump"--Back cover.

Receptor Biology by Michael Roberts Receptor Biology, Paperback (March 2016)

Written by two experienced college teachers from the USA, this is the only entry-level textbook on the subject currently available. The authors begin by explaining some basics in membrane biochemistry, hormone biology, and the concept of receptor based signaling as the main form of communication between cells and of cells with the environment.
