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

            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.

            The Wine O'Clock Myth: The Truth You Need to Know About Women and Alcohol (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            The Wine O'clock Myth takes an in-depth look at the drinking habits of New Zealand women. It's written through the lens of Lotta Dann's own story and her work in the field of recovery and addiction today. It contains evidence-based research gleaned from primary sources, and numer...ous interviews with experts in many fields. As well as examining the normalising of alcohol in New Zealand, The Wine O'clock Myth explores the glorification that goes on with regards to this drug. It discusses when and how the alcohol industry began specifically targeting women, unpicking the tactics they employ to target female customers. It looks at the rise of the now-ubiquitous 'Wine Mum' culture on social media and the role the alcohol industry and media companies play in perpetuating this. It also investigates the impact that regular, heavy drinking has on women, both physically and emotionally. It looks at the emotional impacts - the numbing, dulling and disconnection that can occur - and the physical impacts: the problems alcohol can cause in the body and the increased risk of diseases. But while the book offers a big-picture analysis, it also provides an intimate view of the issue by featuring the voices of Kiwi women sharing their personal stories, revealing the pervasive and negative impact alcohol can have on a woman's life. These personal reflections contain tales of emotional disconnection, diminished power, confused thinking and damaged relationships. There are also uplifting stories of the remarkable transformations that can occur when alcohol is removed.

            Her Way is a collection of authentic stories of New Zealand female business founders succeeding in business here and internationally, doing so on their own terms, and with heart. Includes women from Auckland, Wellington, Christchuch, Nelson, Hawkes Bay, Havelock North and more.... The personal stories these women share are real and inspiring - sharing the ups and downs, the trials and challenges, but also showcasing the successes achieved through a more 'inherently female' style of doing business. The traditionally classified 'feminine' personality traits such as caring, nurturing, kindness, sharing, helping others, collaborating, creating win-win deals, being mindful of our effect on others and on the environment, balancing family and business, and more, can be harnessed to create a better way of doing business. More and more businesses are enjoying significant commercial success through these values (both female and male led). Women featured include: - Lisa King, Eat my Lunch - Brianne West, Ethique - Anna Guenther, Pledge Me - Sue de Bievre, Beany - Jan Hellreigel, Musician, Songbroker, Airplane Music Services
