              This book is an eclectic mix of stories that range from the beginnings of the NZ Police from the Armed Constabulary in 1886; through the political machinations of the government of the time and the Police Commissioner Cullen in their dealing with Rua Kenana, of the Tuhoe tribe in... the Uruweras in 1916; the sinking of the Wahine in 1968 and the subsequent police response. He also recounts in detail various notable murders and incidents that accelerated change in the New Zealand Police with tactics and administration. The story of the hunt for Stanley Graham near Hokitika on the West Coast in October 1941, and the subsequent shooting of seven people, five being Police officers further cements his view of the negative impact upon police attitudes and tactical responses in a somewhat negative way for the next two decades.

              The Australasian Catholic Coalition for Church Reform (ACCCR) is a voice for lay Catholics and comprises a network of 19 member organisations across Australia and New Zealand. Member groups of ACCCR are committed to the Catholic faith and foster collaboration and support in seeki...ng renewal of the Catholic Church. In response to the Assembly of the Australian Plenary Council 2020-2022, the ACCCR convened a series of convocations to promote the Plenary and support its task of renewing the Church in Australia. The online convocations featured keynote speakers who offered a path toward a vibrant synodal Church that speaks to - and meets the needs of - Catholics in this millennium. These convocations, in turn, sparked the genesis for this reading guide - A Church for All. A Church for All presents transcripts from convocation speakers - such as Joan Chittister, Robert Fitzgerald, Debra Zanella, and John Warhurst - along with a response to the Plenary agenda and concrete proposals for the Plenary Council by the ACCCR. The guide also features discussion questions that will provoke further reflection and is designed to be used either alone or with others. A Church for All features some of the most respected voices in the Australian Catholic world and is a must-read for anyone concerned about the future of the Catholic Church.

              Within 24 hours of the Japanese invasion of northern New Guinea at Gona in July 1942, the Australian militiamen of 'B' Company, 39th Battalion, spent four weeks fighting a delaying action against a crack Japanese force outnumbered by three to one. By mid-August, the rest of the b...attalion had arrived, and these men took up a position at Isurava, in the heart of the cloud covered mountains and jungles of the Owen Stanley Range. At Isurava, this small militia force of the 39th Battalion now numbering around 300 men was determined to make a stand against a crack Japanese force of the 144th Regiment and supporting elements, numbering at least 1500. Then on the day the Japanese launched their attack, to the great relief of these militiamen, reinforcements from the 2nd AIF who had fought with great distinction in the Middle East began to arrive in the afternoon having spent days struggling up the track from Port Moresby. Even so, the Australians were still outnumbered, as the Japanese also received reinforcements, and unlike the Japanese, the Australians had no supporting artillery or medium machineguns. The battle for Isurava would be the defining battle of the Kokoda Campaign and has rightfully been described as Australia's Thermopylae. It was here that Australia's first Victoria Cross in the Pacific war was awarded when the Japanese conducted several ferocious attacks against the Australian perimetre. Private Bruce Kingsbury led an Australian counterattack, rushing forward sweeping the Japanese positions with his Bren gun, saving he situation when all seemed lost - he was killed leading the charge. Another two men were also nominated for the VC during the fighting at Isurava. The outnumbered and poorly equipped Australians managed to hold back the Japanese advance for almost a week; only then did these battle scared and weary men begin a month long fighting withdraw towards Ioribaiwa Ridge just north of Port Morsby. However, their sacrifice provided time for the Austral
