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

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

              By E. Bartholomew, Robert

              • RRP: $25.99

              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.

              Kobe: Forever (EPUB ebook)

              Kobe Bryant will forever be remembered as one of the most influential figures basketball has ever known. The Black Mamba's path to iconic status started quietly with the 13th pick of the 1996 NBA Draft, but Kobe left his mark in Los Angeles and beyond as a fierce competitor who l...ifted those around him and never settled for anything less than the best. This is a profound remembrance of an extraordinary life cut short, covering 20 years of hardwood genius plus a rich existence off the court as a father, filmmaker, mentor, and entrepreneur. Including nearly 100 full-color photographs, fans are provided a glimpse into Kobe's early days bursting onto the NBA scene, the five NBA championships with the Lakers, his transcendent 60-point final game, and his multifaceted second act in retirement.
