              The Mosses of New Zealand
                

              The Mosses of New Zealand (PDF ebook)

              By Beever, Jessica

              Mosses are small but beautiful plants, responsible in part for the lush appearance of New Zealand's rainforests. They form an important part of the vegetation in almost all environments: in alpine and lowland areas, on coastal cliffs, in pastures and lawns and even in cracks on c...ity pavements. The Mosses of New Zealand describes in detail the life and structure of these fascinating plants, enabling both the enthusiastic amateur and the professional botanist to identify their many and diverse forms. Jessica Beever has completely revised Allison and Childs' 1971 edition of The Mosses of New Zealand, detailing a much greater number of mosses, including newly discovered species. An extensive key and bibliography, 25 black and white and 50 colour photographs plus over 80 of Dr Beever's own line drawings make this the definitive reference book in its field.

              The Broken Decade
                

              The Broken Decade (PDF ebook)

              By McKinnon, Malcolm

              The Depression of the 1930s was a defining period in New Zealand history. It had its own vocabulary – swaggers and sugarbags, relief work and sustenance, the Queen Street riots and special constables – that was all too familiar to those who lived through that tumultuo...us decade. But one generation's reality is another's history. The desperate struggles experienced by many for work, food and shelter during the 1930s eventually gave way to the sunny postwar years, when the Depression was no more than an uncomfortable memory. And now, for the children of the twenty-first century, it's just a word. While the lives of those most affected by the Depression have been admirably documented in oral histories in various forms, the political and economic context, and the manoeuvrings and responses to the unprecedented conditions have not, until now, been given the extensive analysis they deserve. The Broken Decade, Malcolm McKinnon's detailed and absorbing history of this period, unpicks the Depression year by year. It begins by introducing the prosperous world of New Zealand in the late 1920s before focusing on the sudden onset of the Depression in 1930–31, the catastrophic months that followed and, finally, on the attempt to find a way back to that pre-Depression prosperity. Informed by exhaustive research, relevant statistics and fascinating personal accounts, and made accessible and meaningful by insightful analysis, this important book will become New Zealand's definitive study of the 1930s Depression.
