100 Great NZ Wineries
100 Great NZ Wineries
100 Great New Zealand Wineries features many of the best vineyards in the country. All New Zealand's main wine-making regions are described, with wineries chosen not only for the quality of the wine produced, but also for their history, cellar-door atmosphere, awards won and the impact the winery has had at home and abroad. Author Douglas Renall has walked the vineyards, searched the cellars and talked with winemakers and vineyard managers to gather fascinating insights about the viticulture methods employed, the oenology practices used and with the people who work long days in the vineyard and equally long nights in the cellar. Often visiting wineries several times, and always with his camera, he has also captured the beauty and seasonal differences of vineyards around the country.

Ajax the Kea Dog A Working Dogs Life in the High Country
Ajax the Kea Dog A Working Dogs Life in the High Country
Together, Corey and Ajax traverse the steep high country throughout the South Island searching out kea nests. Their part in the kea conservation effort is essential and both Ajax and Corey can rightly be called conservation heroes.

This heart-warming story describes how Ajax was trained to be one of the very few kea detection dogs in the world and tells of his various escapades in the unpredictable wilds of the steep back-country, including flying in helicopters, working in blizzards, heavy rain and dense fog, escaping from angry wasps and sleeping out in the bitter cold.

The strong connection between Ajax and Corey has proved vital to their survival and the important work that they do. Ajax is slowing down now and soon his high-country days will be over.

Aotea Great Barrier
Aotea Great Barrier
If New Zealand has everything imaginable within a day's drive, then Great Barrier Island has pretty much everything within an hour. Rugged basalt bays on the west side, a mountainous interior and white-sand beaches on the east coast, serene one moment, savage the next - it's not for nothing the island is called Great Barrier. The book consists of five chapters - sea, beach, land, bush and the mountains. Each of these landscapes is explored through the eyes of 12 different locals, who describe a favourite part of the island and explain why it has special meaning for them. In the process, they capture the essence of a community that is unlike any other. Perhaps more than anywhere else in New Zealand, there is a determination to retain what it is that makes the Barrier special, and discovering, defining what that is, is the theme of this book. Created around Chris Morton's spectacular and evocative photographs, and a thoughtful and authentic text from Peter Malcouronne, this is a unique and special book, a tribute to this ruggedly beautiful island and the community that love it.

On April 25, 1915, in the famous Battle of the Landing at what became known as Anzac Cove, Lieutenant Spencer Westmacott of the Auckland Infantry Battalion was seriously wounded.

Architecture in an Expanded Field
Architecture in an Expanded Field
This book is a collection of essays stemming from the 2013 symposium, marking the 120th anniversary of women's suffrage in Aotearoa, New Zealand, and the 1993 exhibition 'Constructive Agenda: 60 years of Women in Architecture in New Zealand - hosted by W+A.NZ, called Architecture in an Expanded Field. Interested participants were asked to send in an essay based on their presentation at the symposium. This volume is a collection of those essays, with a preface by Sarah Treadwell and an introduction by Lucy Treep. As a form of reply to the symposium, an essay by Amanda Reynolds (who wasn't at the symposium) is included. All the contributors to the volume graduated with a BArch from Auckland University and have ended up working in fields separate to, but in some way aligned with, architecture. All the contributors are women. As one of the remits of A+W is to publish the work of women to establish a permanent record of women and architecture in NZ, this volume sits centrally to A+W's aims.

Army Fundamentals From Making Soldiers to the Limits of the Military Instrument
Army Fundamentals From Making Soldiers to the Limits of the Military Instrument
How does an Army recruit attain an identity with soldierhood? What do they give up and what do they gain? What happens when a young officer, indoctrinated in a military way of thinking, is thrust into the academic, free-thinking environment of a university? When military units are deployed in insecure environments to enhance security and governance while facilitating reconstruction and development, what separates the humanitarian from the soldier? And are the roles in fact compatible? The New Zealand Army is facing challenges in recruiting and retaining women - how does the Anzac legend and national identity contribute to that? Can a modern warrior be a woman? Do NZDF personnel on deployment really 'punch above their weight' or is this a myth? What happens when our forces overseas move into policing? All these major issues are addressed in this fascinating and compelling book, in which expert authors delve deep into New Zealand's modern-day Army.As the foreword notes,this book delves 'into some of the seemingly idiosyncratic aspects of the New Zealand Army's culture, value system, enculturation practices and operational learning with vignettes, case studies, and observations that help explain military purpose, action and effect.
It shows how the New Zealand Army's traditions, practices and values seek to fit its members to cope, survive and succeed in contemporary operational settings.'

At the Margin of Empire
At the Margin of Empire
In this remarkable biography, Jennifer Ashton uses the life of one man as a unique lens through which to view the early history of New Zealand. Born in Scotland in 1818, John Webster came to New Zealand via Australia in 1841 (after a violent encounter in the outback which he just escaped unscathed) and spent most of the rest of his life in Hokianga. At the Margin of Empire charts his colourful experiences carving out a fortune as the region's leading timber trader and cultivating connections with the leading figures of the day, Maori and Pakeha. Webster fought alongside Tamati Waka Nene in the Northern War, married one of Nene's relatives and built up his kauri timber business through trade with local chiefs (though at one point awoke to find a plundering party had arrived on his front lawn). He was also friends with Frederick Maning, and visited by George Grey, Richard Seddon and other luminaries of the day. In telling the story of John Webster's long and colourful life for the first time, this biography also explores the wider transformation of relationships between Maori and Pakeha during the nineteenth century.
It is an intimate and revealing account of life in early New Zealand.
