              Aztecs: Conquest and Glory
               

              Aztecs: Conquest and Glory (Paperback)

              By Jimson, Kerry

              Drawing on exclusive access to the cultural treasures of Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), this accessible, colorful book tells of the complexity, richness, splendor, and mystery of the Aztec civilization. The book reflects the latest archaeological ...knowledge about the Mexican people and provides exclusive interviews with a range of international experts on Mexican life and culture. Included in the book are more than 200 color reproductions of treasures from the national museums of Mexico, archival documents, iconic codices featuring pictograms of Aztec writing, and rare archaeological images from the temples--particularly the Templo Mayor where human sacrifices were made less than 500 years ago. The story of the Aztecs is fascinating, dramatic, and ultimately tragic--from its mythic origins, rituals, and ways of life to its tragic conquest--and this visually stunning resource reflects the profound heritage of Aztec culture and its continuing importance at the heart of Mexican life today.

              This illustrated history tells the amazing story of Pacific people and their relationships with, and contributions to, New Zealand society. In a great feat of exploration and migration, Pacific Islanders became the first people to step foot on these shores some 800 years ago. Tod...ay, New Zealand is home to the largest population of Pacific Islanders anywhere in the world, and New Zealand has a long history with the other islands of the Pacific, their people and their cultures. Yet how many New Zealanders consider themselves Pacific Islanders, despite this shared geography and past? How many know the amazing history of New Zealands Pacific people? Tangata o le Moana is the first book to present that history. It tells the stories of Pacific people past and present, in all areas of life on the street, on the sports field, in the recording studio, on the political stage, and beyond. There are highs, and there are lows from the dawn raids of the 1970s to Tana Umaga becoming first Samoan captain of the All Blacks. And alongside tales of legendary figures like Kupe and historical figures like the navigator priest Tupaia, there are previously untold stories, too like the first-person accounts of Pacific people who visited and settled here in the 1800s, at a time when New Zealands leaders dreamed of creating their own empire in the Pacific, or the Pacific Islands soldiers who fought and died for New Zealand in the two world wars. Across fifteen chapters written by leading historians and writers, every aspect of New Zealands relationship with Pacific people is covered from migration to tourism, economics to politics, sport to the arts. Drawing on diverse sources and handsomely illustrated with specially commissioned maps, historical and contemporary photos, archival documents and images of evocative museum objects, Tangata o le Moana presents a very colourful, deeply human record of the story of New Zealand as a Pacific place

              Many know New Zealand's High Country for its beautiful scenery u the snow-cloaked mountains, braided rivers and tussock grasslands, shaped by millions of years of natural events and centuries of exploration and settlement by both Maori and Europeans. With its rich human heritage ...and mythology, the ever-changing High Country is central to the country's psyche and identity. Yet few have experienced the day-to-day life of the men, women, and children who live in these remote regions. Regions where high tech farming methods are used alongside tools an early settler would recognise, where animals play a central role, where hours are long and income can be short, and where everyday livelihoods are at the mercy of the weather. Photographer Antonia Steeg began her work documenting the High Country in 2008, when she was invited to attend the last muster at historic Mesopotamia Station. This quickly expanded into a massive four-year project capturing the land, its people and their way of life through the changing seasons. In her work Antonia has driven over 120,000 kilometres by 4-wheel-drive, seen parts of the country few will ever reach, experienced wild extremes of weather and made more than 100 station visits, meeting and working alongside the modern day pioneers who live there. Of the tens of thousands of high quality photographs she has taken, three hundred of the very best are distilled into this, her first full-length book.
