Books By Author Philip Jones

Behind the Doors by Philip Jones Behind the Doors, Paperback (March 2014)

The Yuendumu Doors are among the freshest, most remarkable documents of Aboriginal art. Painted 30 years ago at a remote desert school by artists steeped in ritual knowledge, the Doors survived against the odds. After near-obliteration by desert winds, sun, and children's graffiti, the Doors have been conserved and their powerful designs restored.

Public Finance and Public Choice by Philip Jones Public Finance and Public Choice, Paperback (July 2009)

Public Finance and Public Choice provides a comprehensive analysis of the economics of the public sector, taking a diagrammatic approach to the subject. Particular emphasis is given to the public choice and behavioural economics schools of thought.

Boomerang by Philip Jones Boomerang, Paperback (September 2004)

From Aboriginal history to kitschy souvenirs to the shelves of your local sports store, boomerangs have a fascinating place in history and popular culture. Author Philip Jones draws on the world's largest boomerang collection at the South Australian Museum to describe the boomerang's traditional uses and its more recent flight into western culture.
