Acknowledge No Frontier The Creation and Demise of NZ's Provinces 1853-76
Acknowledge No Frontier The Creation and Demise of NZ's Provinces 1853-76
While other British settler societies -- Australia, Canada, the US and South Africa -- have states or provinces, New Zealand is a unitary state. Yet New Zealanders today hold firm provincial identities, dating from the time when the young colony was divided into provinces: 1853 to 1876. Why were the provinces created? How did settlers shape and change their institutions? And why, just over 20 years later, did New Zealand abolish its provincial governments? Acknowledge No Frontier, by Andre Brett, is a lively and insightful investigation into a crucial and formative part of New Zealands history. It examines the flaws within the system and how these allowed the central government to use public works -- especially railways -- to gain popular support for abolition of the provinces. The provincial period has an enduring legacy. This is the surprising and counterintuitive story of how vociferous parochialism and self-interest brought New Zealanders together.

Acts of Valour the History of the Victoria Cross & NZ
Acts of Valour the History of the Victoria Cross & NZ
Profiles in courage - the definitive history of the Victoria Cross and New Zealand, fully updated in this new edition. For 150 years the highest Commonwealth military decoration for gallantry has been the Victoria Cross. These are the extraordinary stories of the New Zealand VCs. Since its instigation in 1856 more than 40 Victoria Crosses have been awarded to men whose courage in the face of the enemy was recognised by their comrades. Acts of Valour tells the story of each one, from the New Zealand Wars to the Second World War and the modern battlefields of Afghanistan in the 21st century. Many more were nominated for a VC than ever received it, with some of those famously declined - Malone of Chunuk Bair, Manahi, Perkins and Stott - igniting controversy that continues today. The events, politics and philosophies of this exclusive award are examined by two leading military historians - each story powerful and unique, with compelling accounts of the battles that made our nation and forged our history.
Informative, exciting and provocative, Acts of Valour presents a detailed insight into our military history - and the heroes who walked amongst us, right up to Corporal Willie Apiata, the most recent recipient of the VC, in 2007. Fully revised and updated for the pivotal centennial anniversaries of WWI.

Adventures of a NZ Treasure Hunter
Adventures of a NZ Treasure Hunter
John Pettit took up skindiving as a means of relaxation from the pressure of business. His first trip with the legendary Kelly Tarlton stemmed from a desire to dive the virgin waters of the Three Kings in 1967. It was only after they arrived at the Kings that he discovered the real purpose of the trip was to find the wreck of the Elingamite and locate its treasure. And once the first coins were located, he was hooked. Next the reputed gold of the General Grant beckoned and an expedition to the Auckland Islands was organised. While the General Grant remained elusive, the trip itself was a voyage of discovery and wonder. And not without a small profit as you will see. John continued to be involved with diving adventures and the recovery of artifacts including the finding of d'Survilles anchors, now on display at museums in Wellington and the Far North. Appended to this book is the boat's log of the Road Runner from 1979 to 1981, written by Kelly and John giving a day-to-day account of the hunt and recovery of the bulk of the treasure from the Elingamite.

After Everest
After Everest
'Well if you have a big life, a lot of stuff happens. Dad had a big life.' - Peter Hillary. Edmund Hillary is a towering figure among adventurers. His conquest of Everest and his dedication to the welfare of the Nepalese people is well known. While much has been written about what Sir Edmund Hillary did, 'Ed', the man behind the legend, is less well known in large part because he controlled how his story was told. The years leading up to Everest and the other great adventures are remarkable enough, but it is the drama of Ed's later years that throws light onto the world of the private man: the death of his wife and daughter in an air crash, his remarriage to the widow of an old friend, and, finally, the falling out, after his own death, of family members and those in his inner circle. Ed's image was that of a simple, straightforward man, but in reality he was a complex bundle of paradoxes. He was an individualist who always worked with a team; a young loner who came to be loved by millions; a sometimes distant father who was seen as a surrogate parent by thousands of Nepalese; and a left-leaning thinker who accepted the highest order of chivalry from Queen Elizabeth II.
This is the story of the man behind the legend.

After the War The RSA in NZ
After the War The RSA in NZ
"The story of an iconic institution - the RSA - from its beginnings during the First World War through to the twenty-first century. A highly illustrated look at a threatened icon of New Zealand culture u the RSA. The book will appeal to general readers interested in this readily identifiable but little-understood organisation. It tells of the trials and tribulations of returning soldiers wanting an organisation to represent them, and to make sure they received a fair deal as they settled back into domestic life after serving their country. The story is told not only in text but also through use of photographs and ephemera."
