Congratulations to Robert Eales

Our congratulations to Alumnus Robert Eales on the publication of his book 'The Compassionate Englishwoman, Emily Hobhouse in the Boer War' by Middle Harbour Press.

Author's note

This non-fiction book is about the woman who discovered what the British were doing to civilians, mainly women and children, in the Boer War in South Africa more than 100 years ago. If Emily Hobhouse were alive today, she would receive world-wide recognition and accolades for her quite remarkable work. She was not only compassionate, but also courageous, adventurous, committed, intelligent and could write very well. I need hardly tell you that I found her inspirational. But in her lifetime, her own government did not want you to hear her story and they made life very difficult for her. Now, through this book, I hope everyone will get to know her story. This compelling book will arouse many emotions and may change your view of our common history, including the history of our time.
