Jesus taught his followers that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. Yet by the fall of Rome, the church was becoming rich beyond measure. Through the Eye of a Needle is a sweeping intellectual and social history of the vexing problem of wealth in Christianity in the waning days of the Roman Empire, written by the world's foremost scholar of late antiquity. Peter Brown examines the rise of the church through the lens of money and the challenges it posed to an institution that espoused the virtue of poverty and called avarice the root of all evil. Drawing on the writings of major Christian thinkers such as Augustine, Ambrose, and Jerome, Brown examines the controversies and changing attitudes toward money caused by the influx of new wealth into church coffers, and describes the spectacular acts of divestment by rich donors and their growing influence in an empire beset with crisis. He shows how the use of wealth for the care of the poor competed with older forms of philanthropy deeply rooted in the Roman world, and sheds light on the ordinary people who gave away their money in hopes of treasure in heaven. Through the Eye of a Needle challenges the widely held notion that Christianity's growing wealth sapped Rome of its ability to resist the barbarian invasions, and offers a fresh perspective on the social history of the church in late antiquity.

When the shadows of war became a reality in September 1939 Australia was forced to look to its own resources for its defence. Initially this involved reopening a number of World War 1 Naval lookouts, known as War Signal Stations, at key points around its coast. These were quickly proved ineffective as in 1940 the German Navy had sent a number of disguised, heavily armed ships to prey on commercial shipping in all parts of the world. One of these ships easily evaded the War Signal Stations at both Wilsons Promontory and Cape Otway to lay 110 mines in Bass Strait. Those mines claimed two ships before they could be cleared. This prompted plans to deploy top secret radar stations at Cape Otway and other key points.Before the radars could be commissioned Japan sent a submarine to the vicinity of King Island. An aircraft was launched from it to make a reconnaissance flight over Melbourne. It was sighted but before action could be taken it had flown back to the submarine which quickly left the area. In both cases radar would have provided timely warning of the intrusion so that defences could have reacted successfully. The Cape Otway radar station was duly brought into operation and in these pages you can read accounts of it by the men who served there as well as the above events.
