              Covid-19 is the biggest disruption to human life over the past century. As the world confronts this dire public-health emergency, many of the enforced changes will see the collapse of economies and industries worldwide. However, at the same time, the natural environment is securi...ng much needed breathing space from a species that has ruthlessly plundered every ecosystem towards mass extinction in its indomitable and mindless hunt for the dollar. What changes can humanity embrace through the tragic brunt of this pandemic that will give our species and planet a more sustainably viable path moving forward? How can we facilitate the innovative thinking and major structural change of society and its values required, to enable us to move forward with a more equitable everyday reality? This book looks at the crisis and how it is impacting the current world order - examining various geopolitical approaches to curtailing the epidemic's spread and how best to tackle the 'new normal' moving forward. It also explores key Maori cultural concepts of manaakitanga (looking after one another), kaitiakitanga (connecting with nature and being a guardian over your immediate surroundings), taputanga (following the rules of the 'new normal' with a sacred level of significance), haerengatanga (going on this 'journey of great change' with everyone in tow), pukengatanga (building our family units and communities with gardening, waste management and hunter gathering skills to forge a more sustainable approach forward), and finally whakapoukahatanga (strengthening all those around you) to help underpin future societal thinking. Comparisons will be made between these Maori (and New Zealand) values and the clear and apparent failures of extreme capitalistic systems like the United States with the goal to help forge a more resilient, sustainable and 'Papatuanuku centric' future throughout the impending century of crisis.

              Hjilmar Dannevill travelled the world in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, sometimes using aliases, sometimes disguised as a male, and claiming to be researching venereal diseases on behalf of a wealthy Austrian businessman. She arrived in New Zealand in 1911 and... falsely presented herself as a qualified medical professional while helping to set up a private health home run by women. In the hostile anti-foreigner environment of World War 1, doubts about her sex, identity, qualifications and motivations, as well as suspicions about her relationships with women, drew the attention of police and military authorities. In May 1917, although she tried to defend herself, she was declared a German spy and imprisoned. Like many other women who formed transnational networks stretching across Europe, Asia, the Americas and the Pacific to New Zealand, in defiance of sex-role stereotypes, Dannevill pursued life, work and female relationships around the globe. According to the authorities she was 'a thorough humbug and fraud' and 'just the sort of person who would take up such a job as a political spy or pimp.' But who was Hjilmar Dannevill? Why did she lie? Why was she persecuted? Was she a spy?
