              The only thing to bring this frozen world to life is an imagination. Who has one? Do I? Let me check. Rata Gordon's first poetry collection is both graceful and restless, sorrowful and witty. In poems about childhood, travelling, the body and the earth, Gordon describe...s the freedom and disorientation we find in unfamilar places, and the way that our longings and imaginings animate our lives.

              This book is the first to represent the full extent of the work of James Brown. With personal lyrics, narrative desire, short takes, anti-poetry, stolen lines, and hill-climbing, Selected Poems is a showcase of one of New Zealand's essential poetic voices. 'James Brown is the... New Zealand poet laureate of torpor, resignation and exhaustion ... with intermittent bouts of fanatical bicycle riding. The miracle is that he can make it all so interesting and darkly humorous and weirdly moving.' -Gregory O'Brien 'This is not a poetry book for the faint-hearted.' -Pania Brown (James's sister) 'The finding of poetry in unlikely places expands our concept of what poetry is - if a poem can be found in the heart of an ATM, where can it not be found?' -Gabe Atkinson

              In this witty and entertaining memoir, Alister Kershaw describes the pleasures of his prolonged residence in France - a country of villages - from 1948, when even Paris was a series of villages. In post-war Paris, Kershaw lived a penniless but joyous existence, tramping streets h...e had long imagined from the poets and novelists he had read. Village to Village captures a Paris long gone but vividly remembered. The author conjures Paris prior to the triumph of the technocrats and town planners, and the major redevelopments that changed the provincial cities for all time. It also traces the authors move into the Berry, two hours south of Paris, where he lives in a hamlet of six houses and finds a rural life amongst a small group of traditional winemakers. What will his neighbours make of this intruder - a writer, a poet, a broadcaster - and an Australian into the bargain?

              New Zealand History and Cultural Environment. Early history, Settlement, People and Tradition, Polynesians, Maori culture. Contemporary New Zealand has a majority of people of European origin, a significant minority of Maori, and smaller numbers of people from Pacific islands and... Asia. In the early 21st century, Asians were the fastest-growing demographic group. New Zealand was one of the last sizable land areas suitable for habitation to be populated by human beings. The first settlers were Polynesians who traveled from somewhere in eastern Polynesia, possibly from what is now French Polynesia. They remained isolated in New Zealand until the arrival of European explorers, the first of whom was the Dutch navigator Abel Janszoon Tasman in 1642. Demographers estimate that, by the time British naval captain James Cook visited the country in 1769, the Maori population was not much greater than 100,000. They had no name for themselves but eventually adopted the name Maori (meaning normal ) to distinguish themselves from the Europeans, who, after Cook's voyage, began to arrive with greater frequency
