            From out of the housing crisis towards the end of the Second World War, Auckland City's mayor John Allum came up with the idea of turning former military camps into transit housing, filling the gap between inadequate slum areas and better homes provided by the government schemes,... amongst others. The idea took hold nationwide for a time, until the crisis eventually eased. Today, hardly anything remains. A Place to Stay awhile details the stories and the lives at Auckland's five transit housing camps, at Mt Victoria in Devonport, Western Springs, Victoria Park, the Auckland Domain, and Camp Bunn near Panmure, as well as Transit Camps in other areas of New Zealand..

It provides a coherent descriptive and analytical account of the key elements of the complex societies that make up the region and its component countries. Illustrated with 80 maps and offering concise entries on key issues, the book is structured thematically in these sections: South Asia in Global Context The Geographical Environment The Historical Evolution of Modern South Asia Key Issues in Contemporary South Asia The Economy Defence and Security South Asia, its Neighbours and the World. Designed for use in teaching undergraduate and graduate classes and seminars in geography, history, economics, anthropology, international relations, political science and the environment as well as regional courses on South Asia, this book is also a comprehensive reference source for libraries and decision makers focusing on South Asia.
