            No Maori Allowed: New Zealand's Forgotten History of Racial Segregation (Paperback)

            This is the story of New Zealand's most racist town. From 1952 to 1964, Pukekohe housed the only segregated Maori school in the history of the country. Tragically, hundreds of Maori infants and children died as a result of their segregation in slums where they were forced to live... on the edge of town. No Maori Allowed looks at what happened at Pukekohe and the extent of racial intolerance across the country. Using records from the National Archives and firsthand interviews, chapters cover the extent of racial intolerance across the country in housing and employment during the segregation period from 1925 to the early 1960s. Did you know that on 'K Road' in Auckland, shops had signs reading 'No Credit for Maori,' in Hamilton stores refused to let them try on pants, hospitals had segregated maternity wards and gave them less expensive cutlery, while many stores and major banks had official policies of not hiring 'coloureds'. When a New Zealand University Press insisted that I modify the text as it was too pro- Maori, I decided to publish it myself, because the true history of Maori cannot be censored.

            That September 2, 1939, the day of the Spanish exiles' splendid arrival in Chile, the Second World War broke out in Europe. Victor Dalmau is a young doctor when he is caught up in the Spanish Civil War, a tragedy that leaves his life - and the fate of his country - forever change...d. Together with his sister-in-law, the pianist Roser Bruguera, he is forced out of his beloved Barcelona and into exile. When opportunity to seek refuge in Chile arises, they take it, boarding a ship chartered by the poet Pablo Neruda to the promised `long petal of sea and wine and snow' over the seas. There, they find themselves enmeshed in a rich web of characters who come together in love and tragedy over the course of four generations, destined to witness the battle between freedom and repression as it plays out across the world. A masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile and belonging, A Long Petal of the Sea is Isabel Allende at the height of her powers.

            Macedonia occupies a curious position on the map, and a curious blank in our collective consciousness. A land-locked nation in the Southern Balkan peninsula, Macedonia is wedged between countries that have been gripped by communism, dictatorship or conflict, without ever itself h...aving been forced into the international spotlight by political ideology or war. As such, it remains Europe's oldest surviving melting pot of faiths and civilisations, with one foot in the west and one foot in the Middle East. Macedonia is also the birthplace of Kapka Kassbova's grandmother, and so her journey to this ancient region is also a home-coming of sorts, a chance to understand the legacy of the past. Tracing a route around Lake Ohrid and the ancient Roman road, the via Egnatia, Kassabova meets monks and nuns, archaeologists and fishermen, new Islamists and old pagans, icon painters and pearl artisans, as she searches for her Macedonian family, the living and the dead.
