AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In a London Underground station during the build-up to peak hour: a penniless tourist, hefting an enormous backpack, is almost pushed off the crowded platform; an elderly woman craves a cigarette while staring at a government health warning; a pregnant mouse struggles to escape an oncoming train. In the tropical heat of suburban Brisbane: a lone schoolboy has a disconcerting experience while watching a film in a multiplex; three office workers mercilessly taunt a colleague; a father discusses with his young sons the morality of Stalin's starvation of the peasantry.'
