Where Ideas Grow

The Pulse | Current Affairs

The flashpoint of the death of George Floyd has unleashed a surge of shock and anger that has reached far beyond the borders of the United States, igniting not only support for the Black Lives Matter movement around the globe, but also an urgent demand for a new respect and a deeper understanding of indigenous and minority communities and individuals simply going about their daily lives.

SPOTLIGHT ON CHINA

News surrounding diplomatic tensions between China and western nations, Australia and the US in particular, can colour our understanding of the Chinese people as distinct from their leadership. Our bookshop at 131 York Street and our online catalogue features a wide variety books on all facets of China, from ancient history and art, the people and lifestyles, the power struggles and politics, business and trade, to modern day developments.

For language learning and novels in Chinese, our Language Book Centre contains a wealth of textbook resources, readers and children's books: CHINESE

COVID-19 DELAYS UPDATES:

Our online store is powering along, but here's a few things to note. In Stock items will ship immediately, however items that need to come in from our suppliers may be subject to disruption, so your patience is appreciated.

LENGTHY DELAYS: OVERSEAS BOOKS NOW COMING BY SEA: Books from overseas can normally take 4 weeks or more to arrive here. Unfortunately, international air freight has been disrupted by the pandemic so that many books are now coming via sea and are generally taking over 8 weeks to arrive into store. A title's supplier might estimate as little as 6 weeks, or it could be 12 weeks or longer but we'll update you as soon as we know!

AUSPOST: EXPRESS POST UPDATE: AusPost have temporarily suspended their Express Post guarantee. The Express Post service continues to be our fastest postal delivery option for our customers – and we'll continue to prioritise these deliveries. They just may not be delivered next business day every time.

AUSPOST: OUTGOING INTERNATIONAL PARCELS DELAYS: We have been advised of delays of between 5-15 BUSINESS DAYS on parcels leaving Australia.

AN ALADDIN'S CAVE FOR READERS

Nestled beside the Queen Victoria Building...

Abbey's Bookshop at 131 York Street has become an institution among readers and knowledge seekers looking for those hard to find books. Abbey's remains a favourite of many of Australia's academics and authors, politicians and lawyers.

We're a 'must' if your interests are in...

...history, science, crime fiction or literature. Our customers often express their surprise and delight at finding books they were unaware of, whether from smaller publishers or sourced from overseas.

And more treasures lie upstairs...

...Thousands of fantasy and science fiction books in our GALAXY Bookshop, plus an enormous range of fiction in other languages within our Language Book Centre.

Abbey's really is an Aladdin's cave for readers!
