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

            By E. Bartholomew, Robert

            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.

            The Wine O'clock Myth takes an in-depth look at the drinking habits of New Zealand women. It's written through the lens of Lotta Dann's own story and her work in the field of recovery and addiction today. It contains evidence-based research gleaned from primary sources, and numer...ous interviews with experts in many fields. As well as examining the normalising of alcohol in New Zealand, The Wine O'clock Myth explores the glorification that goes on with regards to this drug. It discusses when and how the alcohol industry began specifically targeting women, unpicking the tactics they employ to target female customers. It looks at the rise of the now-ubiquitous 'Wine Mum' culture on social media and the role the alcohol industry and media companies play in perpetuating this. It also investigates the impact that regular, heavy drinking has on women, both physically and emotionally. It looks at the emotional impacts - the numbing, dulling and disconnection that can occur - and the physical impacts: the problems alcohol can cause in the body and the increased risk of diseases. But while the book offers a big-picture analysis, it also provides an intimate view of the issue by featuring the voices of Kiwi women sharing their personal stories, revealing the pervasive and negative impact alcohol can have on a woman's life. These personal reflections contain tales of emotional disconnection, diminished power, confused thinking and damaged relationships. There are also uplifting stories of the remarkable transformations that can occur when alcohol is removed.

            In 2012, Jackie Clark launched The Aunties, a grassroots charity helping women to rebuild their lives after a period of trauma. She quit her job, turning her back on her comfortable life, to focus on The Aunties full-time, becoming Aunty in Charge and assisting hundreds of women ...with material needs and emotional support. Jackie has long dreamed of a publication that gives these women a voice. This powerful new book features the stories of a number of very different New Zealand women, told their way. The collected stories chart their narrators' lives and personal histories, through the lens of having lived with - and escaped - an abusive partner. Her Say is spoken from the heart, uncompromising but offering hope, redemption, personal triumph. It's a book for all women, showing how owning our stories gives us the power to write daring new endings. It will challenge, illuminate, and empower readers - not to mention the storytellers themselves.
