              WHEN CRINOLINES, BUSTLES AND OSTRICH FEATHERS WERE THE HEIGHT OF COLONIAL FASHION. This richly illustrated and lively social history explores the creation, consumption and spectacle of fashionable dress in Aotearoa New Zealand from 1840 to the early 1900s. Dressmakers were essent...ial contributors to the development of New Zealand, and as a colonial outpost of the British Empire, New Zealands 19th century dress culture was heavily shaped by international trends. Interactions with Maori, the demands of settler lifestyle and the countrys geography all added another layer. Dressed teems with the fascinating, busy lives of early businesswomen, society women and civic figures. Featuring dresses and fashionable accessories from museums throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, and including over 270 images, this major book makes a significant contribution to histories of colonial dress.

              Tangata o le Moana: New Zealand and the People of the Pacific (Paperback)

              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

              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.
