Australian sportsmen are known worldwide for their hilarious and, quite frankly, inspired sledges. Over the years, there have been some classic lines uttered on a variety of sporting fields and arenas, whether it's across the cricket pitch or on the footie field. Now, for the first time, we have the ultimate collection of sporting insults brought together by a man with a reputation for his humorous witticisms and cutting sledges: Merv Hughes. Merv Hughes' Best Sporting Insults will amuse any sports fan for hours.

Merv Hughes is one of the true characters of Australian sport. A big-hearted fast bowler, he was one of the greatest to have played our national game, taking 212 wickets and making 1032 runs during 53 Test matches he played for Australia. With his mischievous sense of humour, and his imposing moustache, Merv is regarded by both Australian and international media as one of sport's eminent providers of quotable quotes.


Female Action Heroes

RRP $286.99

Female action heroes, like other fictional characters, not only reveal a lot about society, but greatly influence individuals in society. It is no surprise that the gradual development and increase in the number of female action heroes coincides with societal changes and social movements, such as feminism. Nor is it a surprise that characteristics of female action heroes echo the progressive toughening of women and young girls in the media.

"Female Action Heroes: A Guide to Women in Comics, Video Games, Film, and Television" brings to the forefront the historical representation of women and girls in film, television, comic books, and video games. The book includes profiles of 25 of the most popular female action heroes, arranged in alphabetical order for easy reference. Each chapter includes sections on the hero's origins, her power suit, weapons, abilities, and the villains with whom she grapples. Most significantly, each profile offers an analysis of the hero's story-and her impact on popular culture.
