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.

An Angel At My Table The Complete Autobiography
An Angel At My Table The Complete Autobiography
One of the great autobiographies of the twentieth century ... A journey from luminous childhood, through the dark experiences of supposed madness, to the renewal of her life through writing fiction. It is a heroic story, and told with such engaging tone, humorous perspective and imaginative power' Michael Holroyd, Sunday TimesAfter being misdiagnosed with schizophrenia as a young woman, Janet Frame spent several years in psychiatric institutions. She escaped undergoing a lobotomy when it was discovered that she had just won a national literary prize. She then went on to become New Zealand's most acclaimed writer. As she says more than once in this autobiography: 'My writing saved me.'This edition contains all three volumes of Frame's autobiography: To the Is-Land, An Angel at My Table and An Envoy from Mirror City.'One of the most beautiful and moving books I have ever read . . . A masterpiece . . . Janet's autobiography had an enormous effect on me. She struck a blow right to my heart' Jane Campion

Anything You Can Imagine Peter Jackson & the Making of Middle Earth
Anything You Can Imagine Peter Jackson & the Making of Middle Earth
The definitive history of Peter Jackson's Middle-earth saga, Anything You Can Imagine takes us on a cinematic journey across all six films, featuring brand-new interviews with Peter, his cast & crew. From the early days of daring to dream it could be done, through the highs and lows of making the films, to fan adoration and, finally, Oscar glory. LightsA nine-year-old boy in New Zealand's Pukerua Bay stays up late and is spellbound by a sixty-year-old vision of a giant ape on an island full of dinosaurs. This is true magic. And the boy knows that he wants to be a magician.CameraFast-forward twenty years and the boy has begun to cast a spell over the film-going audience, conjuring gore-splattered romps with bravura skill that will lead to Academy recognition with an Oscar nomination for Heavenly Creatures. The boy from Pukerua Bay with monsters reflected in his eyes has arrived, and Hollywood comes calling. What would he like to do next? `How about a fantasy film, something like The Lord of the Rings...?'ActionThe greatest work of fantasy in modern literature, and the biggest, with rights ownership so complex it will baffle a wizard. Vast. Complex. Unfilmable. One does not simply walk into Mordor - unless you are Peter Jackson.Anything You Can Imagine tells the full, dramatic story of how Jackson and his trusty fellowship of Kiwi filmmakers dared take on a quest every bit as daunting as Frodo's, and transformed JRR Tolkien's epic tale of adventure into cinematic magic, and then did it again with The Hobbit. Enriched with brand-new interviews with Jackson, his fellow filmmakers and many of the films' stars, Ian Nathan's mesmerising narrative whisks us to Middle-earth, to gaze over the shoulder of the director as he creates the impossible, the unforgettable, and proves that film-making really is `anything you can imagine'.

Anzac in the Family
Anzac in the Family
Many families in New Zealand have an Anzac who served in WW1. Private Leslie McAlpine could have been any one of thousands of young men who left family and friends to serve his country. He was a fit, healthy young man when he left New Zealand and never completely lost hope that he would get back home. His story illustrates how decisions made in the wider world can affect our lives and opportunities. Using stories passed down by Leslie's brothers and sisters, An ANZAC in the FAMILY shows the pride, the worry and the painful loss felt by them and Leslie's parents.
An ANZAC in the FAMILY follows the lives and eventual fate of Leslie and the other 2,234 men in the 4th Reinforcements - a group that don't feature in many of the accounts of the First World War. The Main Body are well known because they were involved in the landing at Gallipoli on April 25. Later Reinforcements went straight to Europe and fought on the Western Front. Their men wrote journals, published newsletters and took more photos that have survived. But the 4th Reinforcements have a proud tradition. Members fought at Gallipoli, Egypt, Salonika and the Western Front. They did it all. Based on two years of research, An ANZAC in the FAMILY includes a complete listing of all 2,235 men: name, rank, where they came from and, if they were killed, where they are buried.

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.
