            In the period from 1820 to 1920, more than 60 prophets arose in New Zealand leading distinctive movements in response to the message brought by Christian missionaries. Although many served as vehicles for social protest, these movements were primarily attempts to affirm spiritual... and racial identity in the face of rapid cultural change. Mana From Heaven records the evolution of Maori spirituality from early contact, particularly considering the influence of the translated scriptures, and showing how and why the movements differed in distinct periods. Regarded as the definitive work in its field, the book analyses the principal influences in Maori religious movements during the first century of European settlement and gives vivid portrayals of the dozens of individuals who shaped the responses to the new beliefs.

            Internationally recognised Graham Bennett is best known in Aotearoa New Zealand for the soaring Reasons for Voyaging outside Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna Waiwhetu, the Tribute to Firefighters using steel from the World Trade Center ruins, and major commissions at Gibbs Farm a...nd at Connells Bay Waiheke Island. Especially prominent in Japan, he has also exhibited widely elsewhere: Korea, Hong Kong, New York, Spain and Australia. His works have featured on the cover of international sculpture publications. Bennett's intricate sculptures speak not only to human invention, the history of voyaging, the need to find balance in our activities and the realities of science, but also the urgency of recognizing and responding to the warning signs of a growing global environmental catastrophe. Bennett's striking sculptures sit atop an extensive and varied art practice embedded in drawing, printmaking, photography. He distils complex ideas by experimenting with scales that range from intimate to monumental, and calls on a variety of media and contemporary technologies. Three major essays by accomplished writers and five elegant image sequences give insight into the nature of his thinking and process, firmly based in Aotearoa New Zealand yet spanning the globe and half a century. Bennett adds personal insights in an absorbing behind-the-scenes account of the intertwining of art and life, ever changing, turning, moving forward.

            A story of life growing up in Palmerston North in the 1950's, 60's and early 1970's and then to locations further afield in West Australia, Gisborne, Asia and Bay of Islands. Main Street, Victoria Avenue, Roy Street, Russell Street Primary School, Freyberg High School, Massey Uni...versity, Longburn Freezing Works and the PNCC Rubbish Cart, all have their moment. The book provides an insight into growing up in post-war small-town New Zealand, the usual angst of a young man finding his way in life, how to earn a living and build relationships. Working on farms, in the freezing works, flatting while studying at university, working in a construction camp in the West Australian outback and travelling the Hippie Trail across Asia, all form the backdrop to a Palmy Boy's Story.
