              In the early 1900s, 130 young Anglo-Indians were sent to New Zealand in an immigration scheme from Kalimpong, India. They were the mixed-race children of British tea planters and local women, and were placed as workers with New Zealand families. Jane McCabe here tells this compel...ling and little-known story, in pictures.

              The poems in Sinking Lessons portray the vitality of a world full of things and beings we too often disregard, using language that vibrates in harmony with the lively tales it tells - from small, everyday events to stories of shipwrecks and strandings, resurrections and reanimati...ons, arctic adventures and descents into the underworld.

              In lieu of flowers, bring weeds. Elizabeth Morton's poems look unflinchingly at a raw and unstable world - the crash, the aftermath, the comeback, 'the black heat at the centre of things'. The poems in Morton's second collection are charged with a visceral energy. This is poetry ...as incantation: an intense, larger-than-life, tactile experience.

              Making a New Land presents an interdisciplinary perspective on one of the most rapid and extensive transformations in human history: that which followed Maori and then European colonisation of New Zealand's temperate islands. This is a new edition of Environmental Histories of Ne...w Zealand, first published in 2002, brimming with new content and fresh insights into the causes and nature of this transformation, and the new landscapes and places that it produced. Unusually among environmental histories, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of change, focusing on international as well as local contexts. Its 19 chapters are organised in five broadly chronological parts: Encounters, Colonising, Wild Places, Modernising, and Contemporary Perspectives. These are framed by an editorial introduction and a reflective epilogue. The book is well illustrated with photographs, maps, cartoons and other graphics.

              "This is a story of how ordinary people created a movement that changed New Zealand's foreign policy and our identity as a nation. The story of peace activism from our pre-recorded history to 1975 was told in Peace People: A history of peace activities in New Zealand (1992) by El...sie Locke. In this new book her daughter Maire Leadbeater takes the story up to the 1990s in an account of the dramatic stories of the colourful and courageous activist campaigns that led the New Zealand government to enact nuclear-free legislation in 1987. Politicians took the credit, but they were responding to a powerful groundswell of public opinion. In this country nuclear disarmament has become part of our communal psyche to a greater extent than in any other western-aligned nation, but when politicians choose pragmatism over principle in foreign policy, peace and justice suffer. Peace activism is an ongoing story"--Publisher information.

              mages of pristine forests, mountain ranges, untameable rivers and empty expanses of coastline are the key attraction in how we promote Aotearoa New Zealand internationally: 100% Pure no less. Such wildness is at this nations psychological and physical core. This book searches for... an understanding of the wild, of what makes wilderness such an important part of our psyche. What could wilderness in Aotearoa New Zealand become, and, consequently, what might we its people also become?
