              The Devils Henchmen throwing Molotov cocktails at the Epitaph Riders in Christchurchs first gang war. Prime Minister Rob Muldoon surrounded by Black Power members at the Royal Tiger Tavern in Wellington. The Magogs and the Mothers, PEP schemes and P dealers, patches and ridgies, ...colours and class: for five decades gangs have played a pivotal role in New Zealand life. Based on ten years of research among gangs, Patched: The History of Gangs in New Zealand is the first major history of gang life in New Zealand. Jarrod Gilbert traces the story from the bodgies and widgies of the 1950s, through the rise of the Hells Angels and other bikie gangs in the 1960s, the growth of the Mongrel Mob and Black Power in the 1970s and on to shifts in gang activity around drugs and organised crime over the last ten years. Throughout, Gilbert brings us the gang members, the police and the politicians in their own gripping and gritty words. In this violent and sometimes horrifying book, Jarrod Gilbert takes readers for the first time inside a tough but revealing part of New Zealand life.

              'For some scientific questions, Antarctica is the best - and sometimes the only - place to look for answers. Visiting this frozen landscape is to gain a fresh perspective on our world, almost like going to another planet and looking back with renewed wonder on Earth.' In Science ...on Ice, award-winning science broadcaster and writer Veronika Meduna follows deep-south scientists who huddle in tents and dive under ice to study ancient mud, fat fish, migrating penguins and fossilised forests. Meduna presents us with a fascinating frozen land - Antarctica's ice cap holds three quarters of the planet's fresh water, its layers of ice and sediment record past climate conditions going back millions of years, and the oceans around it drive the global food chain and a giant conveyor belt of currents that transports heat around the globe. The creatures that call Antarctica home have evolved to survive in conditions hostile to life, and the continent's permanently ice-covered lakes may even hold the secret to how life began on Earth - and what it might look like elsewhere. And though it is the only continent without permanent human habitation, Antartica may yet hold the key to our survival. In this lavishly illustrated book Meduna introduces us to an exhilarating landscape, to fascinating discoveries and to the people making them - those scientists tackling fundamental questions about life and the world around us from the frozen continent.

              For most of New Zealand's history, its main centre has lain some 12,000 miles away from its geographical borders. London, centre of the empire and the world's greatest city, was also New Zealand's metropolis. Antipodean soldiers and writers, meat carcasses and moa, British films ...and Kiwi tourists - over the last 150 years, all of these people, things and ideas have gone back and forth from New Zealand to London to help define, and redefine, the relationship between this country and its colonial centre. In New Zealand's London, which draws on an award-winning PhD thesis, Felicity Barnes explores 'a colony and its metropolis', from Wakefield to The Wombles. By focusing on particular themes - from agricultural marketing to expatriate writers - Barnes develops a larger story about our colonial and national identity.

              Mad on Radium: New Zealand in the Atomic Age (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In this engaging history, prize-winning author Rebecca Priestley reveals the alternative history of 'nuclear New Zealand' - a country where there was much enthusiasm for nuclear science and technology, from the first users of x-rays and radium in medicine; the young Kiwi physicis...ts seconded to the Manhattan Project; support for British bomb tests in the Pacific; plans for a heavy water plant at Wairakei and a nuclear power station on the Kaipara Harbour; prospecting for uranium on the West Coast; and thousands of scientists and medical professionals working with nuclear technology. Priestley then considers the dramatic transition to the proudly 'nuclear-free New Zealand' policy in the 1980s. In the late 1970s, less than a decade before, New Zealand had been considering nuclear power to meet growing electricity demand. Following the nuclear-free policy, anything with nuclear associations came under suspicion: taxi drivers referred to a science institute using a particle accelerator as 'the bomb factory' and Jools Topp of the Topp Twins refused radiation therapy for cancer, telling the doctors 'I'm a lifelong member of Greenpeace, why would I let you irradiate me?' By uncovering the long and rich history of New Zealanders' engagement with the nuclear world and the roots of our nuclear-free identity, by leading us into popular culture, politics, medicine and science, Priestley reveals much about our culture's evolving attitudes to science and technology and the world beyond our shores.
