              Mundane Events Big Issues: Exploring Everyday Life in Auckland (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Edited by Shore, Cris; Haggar, Sarah

              "The essays in the book, written by first year anthropology students at the University of Auckland, offer unique insights into key aspects of everyday life in New Zealand's largest city, Auckland. Through a series of often highly personal ethnographic vignettes, the authors explo...re a range of topics, from food, sex, clothing, work and leisure, to religion, consumption, gender relations, student etiquette, and the social organisation of space. Together, they provide an extraordinary demonstration of the value of ethnography and its ability to generate new insights into the symbolism and meanings people attach to their everyday social practices."--Back cover.

              There are few areas of society today that remain outside the ambit of policy processes, and likewise policy-making has progressively reached into the structure of everyday life. An instrument of modern government, policy and its processes provide an analytical window into the sys...tems of governance themselves...

              This sociological study examines the process of European integration. It reveals that there is a subculture of corruption within the institutions of Europe, and that its problems are largely a result of the way the EU itself is constituted and run.

              The Crown and Constitutional Reform is an innovative, interdisciplinary exchange between experts in law, anthropology and politics about the Crown, constitutional monarchy and the potential for constitutional reform in Commonwealth common law countries. The constitutional foundat...ion of many Commonwealth countries is the Crown, an icon of ultimate authority, at once familiar yet curiously enigmatic. Is it a conceptual placeholder for the state, a symbol of sovereignty or does its ambiguity make it a shapeshifter, a legal fiction that can be deployed as an expedient mask for executive power and convenient instrument for undermining democratic accountability? This volume offers a novel, interdisciplinary exchange: the contributors analyse how the Crown operates in the United Kingdom and the postcolonial settler societies of Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. In doing so, they examine fundamental theoretical questions about statehood, sovereignty, constitutionalism and postcolonial reconciliation. As Queen Elizabeth II's long reign approaches its end, questions about the Crown's future, its changing forms and meanings, the continuing value of constitutional monarchy and its potential for reform, gain fresh urgency. The chapters in this book were originally published in a special issue of The Round Table: The Commonwealth Journal of International Affairs.
