            This is a brief account for the general reader of the deadliest and most gruesome chapter in New Zealand's history - the Musket Wars in which around one third of the Maori population were killed. The wars were a continuation of the inter-tribal fighting that had been a feature of... native life ever since the tribes arrived in New Zealand in their canoes but the introduction of muskets increased the killing to an industrial scale.

            No Maori Allowed: New Zealand's Forgotten History of Racial Segregation (Paperback)

            This is the story of New Zealand's most racist town. From 1952 to 1964, Pukekohe housed the only segregated Maori school in the history of the country. Tragically, hundreds of Maori infants and children died as a result of their segregation in slums where they were forced to live... on the edge of town. No Maori Allowed looks at what happened at Pukekohe and the extent of racial intolerance across the country. Using records from the National Archives and firsthand interviews, chapters cover the extent of racial intolerance across the country in housing and employment during the segregation period from 1925 to the early 1960s. Did you know that on 'K Road' in Auckland, shops had signs reading 'No Credit for Maori,' in Hamilton stores refused to let them try on pants, hospitals had segregated maternity wards and gave them less expensive cutlery, while many stores and major banks had official policies of not hiring 'coloureds'. When a New Zealand University Press insisted that I modify the text as it was too pro- Maori, I decided to publish it myself, because the true history of Maori cannot be censored.

            A sound broke through the usual calm-the same cracking sound I had heard while I was awake! The fragments Awa Bryant trapped just after she learned she was a long-awaited-for Dreamweaver are terrifyingly close to breaking free - so close that even in the waking world she can hear... their efforts to crack their giant glass dome prison. Veila the Dreamcharmer is training her to use her powers, but Awa is impatient, distracted and still struggling with anxiety in her waking life. Yet, the threat grows stronger. She learns from Veila and the Priestess Tree that she must find the mysterious Dreamrealm labyrinth in order to master her powers and learn to alchemise the fragments before they can do more harm. Even with the training and the guidance she's received, can she succeed in her quest and defeat them before the marvellous Dreamrealm is destroyed?

            This is the third volume of a trilogy detailing the everyday experiences of NZ school children. It covers state and private schools, single sex schools and co-educational from throughout New Zealand. This particular volume has a special emphasis on Maori with seventeen out of the... thirty five interviewees being Maori. As to be expected, some sailed through school with no problems while others suffered discrimination and prejudice from pupils and teachers alike. The book traverses all aspects of schooling, academic, sporting, discipline, religion, school libraries, assemblies and prize-givings. There are some extremely interesting anecdotes which will not fail to raise a smile. The book is illustrated with colour photographs. Judith Bassett kindly wrote a foreword.
