Annette King The Authorised Biography
Annette King The Authorised Biography
Annette King is New Zealand's longest-serving women MP - 1984-2017 less three years in the wilderness from 1990-1993. In her 30 years in Parliament, she spent 15 in government (10 as a cabinet minister) and 15 in opposition. She is a former deputy leader of the Labour Party, and held a number of senior cabinet portfolios. This book will take a dual approach to her life and political career. Annette's career embraces a tumultuous time in New Zealand politics and Labour politics . . . Rogernomics and Lange's independent foreign policy; the 1990s and advent of MMP; the refinement of Rogernomics under Ruth Richardson etc; the rise and nearly fall of Helen Clark; the Clark government (where Annette served as Health, Food Safety, Police, Transport, Justice and Racing Minister); the subsequent 9 years of difficult and troubled opposition for Labour; and eventually the rise of Jacinda Ardern. Annette played pivotal roles in all these eras, often as the peacemaker or as Auntie Annette. She became a mentor for many of the prominent members of the Ardern government and, of course, played a lead role in the 2017 election campaign and subsequent negotiations. The book will give rein to Annette's voice, but also feature other prominent figures including Jacinda. The book will open with the 2017 campaign.

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.

April 25 1915 The Most Glorious Day of My Life
April 25 1915 The Most Glorious Day of My Life
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. However, he survived and went on to write an account of the day which has been called one of the best and truest testimonies of personal experience in battle ever written. This is his story.

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.'

Artefacts of Encounter Cooks Voyages Colonial Collecting & Museum Histories
Artefacts of Encounter Cooks Voyages Colonial Collecting & Museum Histories
The Pacific artefacts and works of art collected during the three voyages of Captain James Cook and the navigators, traders and missionaries who followed him are of foundational importance for the study of art and culture in Oceania. These collections are representative not only of technologies or belief systems but of indigenous cultures at the formative stages of their modern histories, and exemplify Islanders' institutions, cosmologies and social relationships. Recently, scholars from the Pacific and further afield, working with Pacific artefacts at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge (MAA), have set out to challenge and rethink some longstanding assumptions on their significance. The Cook voyage collection at the MAA is among the four or five most important in the world, containing over 200 of the 2000-odd objects with Cook voyage provenance that are dispersed throughout the world. The collection includes some 100 artefacts dating from Cook's first voyage. This stunning book catalogues this collection, and its cutting-edge scholarship sheds new light on the significance of many artefacts of encounter.

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.

Athfield Architects
Athfield Architects
Over many years, Ian Athfield and his team at Athfield Architects have reshaped New Zealand architecture: from the Buck House at Te Mata Estate, Hawke's Bay, to Wellington's Civic Square, from Jade Stadium to Athfield's own sprawling settlement on the Khandallah hills. Reflecting on half a century of work, Julia Gatley's landmark new book, Athfield Architects, introduces a major body of architecture that will lead readers through modernism, postmodernism and beyond. Its four-part structure traces Ian houses; its important break into commercial work; and finally, its impact in the public, urban and institutional realms. Athfield Architects combines newly commissioned photography, evocative original architectural drawings and a rich text informed by extensive archival research and interviews with key figures in the firm. Taking us from the slums of Manila to the streets of post-quake Christchurch, this major book shows how Aotearoa/New Zealand's leading contemporary architect is transforming the way we all might live.
