            In 1998, just as South Island iwi Ngai Tahu was about to sign its Treaty of Waitangi settlement with the government - justice of sorts after seven generations of seeking redress - a former foundryman stepped into the pivotal role of kaiwhakahaere or chair of Te Runanga o Ngai T...ahu - the tribal council of Ngai Tahu. Mark Solomon stood at the head of his iwi at a critical moment and can be credited with the astute stewardship of the settlement that has today made Ngai Tahu a major player in the economy and given it long sought-after self determination. Bold, energetic and visionary, for 18 years Solomon forged a courageous and determined course. Now, in this direct memoir, Ta Mark reflects on his life, on the people who influenced him, on what it means to lead, and the future for both Ngai Tahu and Aotearoa New Zealand.

            Linda Collins gets up on a Monday morning, dresses for work, makes coffee and goes into her daughter Victoria's bedroom. Why hasn't Vicky got up yet? It's an important day: the start of the second term of her final year at school. Today she will hear her latest exam results. T...he bedroom is empty. So begins every parent's worst nightmare. Collins, a New Zealand journalist based in Singapore, writes with startling candour about her daughter's suicide: the secrets she kept from her parents, the revelations in the personal journals she left behind, and the struggle of Collins and Malcolm McLeod, Victoria's father, to find answers in the midst of enormous grief. How, they ask themselves, could they have missed the signs? What did the counsellors at Victoria's school know about her state of mind? Did her school friends have any idea how desperate she was? And above all, why would a beautiful, talented, much loved young woman take her own life? Loss Adjustment is a wake-up call. New Zealand has the highest suicide rate for teenagers among the world's wealthy developed countries. Most of those who kill themselves are, like Victoria McLeod, aged 15 to 19. Linda Collins examines the tragedy of teenage suicide from her profoundly personal viewpoint, while Victoria's journals, uncovered after her death, give an incredibly valuable insight into the unseen stresses and anxieties suffered by many teenagers.

            The official book of the 130th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower, one of the most famous monuments in the world At 1,063 feet (324 meters) high, the Tower is a symbol-of Paris and of France, and of modernity. Since its creation in 1889, the Eiffel Tower has been hailed as a feat of... architectural and engineering prowess, one that still reflects the best of what France has to offer the world. Known in France as the Dame de Fer, or Iron Lady, the Tower is the embodiment of a Parisian woman: seductive and always superbly dressed to impress the 6 million visitors she receives each year. This beautiful two-sided book celebrates the dual identity of the Tower: It opens from one side to offer a behind-the-scenes look at the technical aspects of the monument, and from the other side to show off the star herself, the Tower as an icon of France, an inspiration to artists and designers, a symbol of peace and freedom, and so much more.

            This is a story of contrasts: contrasting countries, cultures, attitudes and fates. The thread connecting them is the commentary of one articulate and strong-willed woman, my mother. In her letters, notes and diary we read about the 6-day trip from London to Hong Kong in 1938 via... flying boat; the enviable social life of busy expatriates in Hong Kong from 1938 to 1941; and the horror, heartbreak and suffering that followed the Japanese invasion in December 1941. My father, being an eligible bachelor and a keen sailor, is mentioned with increasing frequency in the early letters, but as a leading architect in the booming economy of Hong Kong he was very busy and it was not until late 1939 that they were married.

            Battle for the heart of a city. The brilliant true story of a Kiwi musician bringing hope to the main square of a major New Zealand city for a decade. "One night while Wyn and I were there, a scary, drunk bloke turned up and sat down beside me. He told me to play some Led Zep...pelin, and I told him I didn't play that kind of music. Next thing, he punched the front of my Ovation guitar so hard. I thought he'd made a hole in the soundboard. Like a flash, Wyn was on his feet, flipped the guy hard onto his back on the cobblestones and, kneeling on his chest with a fistful of the drunk guy's collar twisted up under his chin, began saying, "You need to repent, bro. Repeat after me: Lord Jesus ..." It turned out that Wyn was a black-belt in pretty well every martial art, and I began to be thankful for God's unusual provision. I was always safe when Wyn was around." -Rick Stokes (excerpt from Chapter Two)
