Auckland Museum Directors Choice
Auckland Museum Directors Choice
Auckland Museum houses the world's leading collection of Maori taonga (treasures) and, reflecting Auckland's place as the world's largest Polynesian city, multiple traditional and contemporary arts from throughout the Pacific region. The Museum's natural history and documentary heritage holdings are among the most extensive in the southern hemisphere - New photography showcases the key items in the collection in exquisite detail - Part of the successful Director's Choice series Auckland Museum, founded in 1852, just 12 years after New Zealand became a British colony, was the nation's first public museum. From the outset the Museum was encyclopedic in its collecting of 'specimens illustrative of the Natural History of New Zealand - also, Weapons, Clothing, Implements of New Zealand, and the Islands of the Pacific'. Starting in a farm cottage, the Museum is now one of the most important in Oceania. Dominating the central Auckland landscape, its monumental Greek Revival building is one of the visual icons of the city. The building is also a memorial to the war dead of the Auckland province, hence the Museum's full title, Auckland War Memorial Museum. Auckland Museum houses the world's leading collection of Maori taonga (treasures) and, reflecting Auckland's place as the world's largest Polynesian city, multiple traditional and contemporary arts from throughout the Pacific region. The Museum's director, David Gaimster, explores this extraordinary collection, each item with its own compelling backstory.

Awatere
Awatere
The Awatere is the Marlborough river and valley south of Blenheim. It runs from Molesworth Station in the high country all the way to the sea below the township of Seddon, overlooked by Mt Tapuae-o-Uenuku, the highest peak in the Inland Kaikoura Range. Author Harry Broad's interest in this area was piqued when he was working on his acclaimed and best-selling book Molesworth, and he has followed through with this to produce Awatere. This is a fascinating and extensive collection of stories that document the multi-facetted, changing face of rural New Zealand, and which explores both the people and the landscape of this area. The upper Awatere valley has many well-known, classic high-country stations, such as The Muller, which borders Molesworth. In the lower valley, there are still many conventional pastoral farms, but the huge change has come through the wine industry. Many people do not realise that the Awatere valley is now the second-largest wine sub-region in New Zealand, with three times the production of an area like Central Otago. This mix of farming and wine has given this area its own unique flavour and character, captured both in Harry Broad's stories, but also through the stunning images from photographers Jim Tannock, Rob Suisted and Dave Hansford, as well as a range of others. Awatere will be a beautiful and engaging book, a must-read for anyone interested in Marlborough, or rural New Zealand.

Balancing Acts Reflections of a NZ Diplomat
Balancing Acts Reflections of a NZ Diplomat
This is Gerald McGhie'sfascinating and insightful account of some of the highlights of almost 40 years service as a New Zealand diplomat - most notably in the Soviet Union - twice - first during the Brezhnev years of the Cold War; and second from 1990 when he witnessed the dramatic events that led to the fall of Gorbachev, the rise of Boris Yeltsin and the collapse of the Soviet Union, which saw him become New Zealand's last Ambassador to the Soviet Union and first to Russia. McGhie worked in Samoa earlier - shortly before independence in the 1960s, and later in Papua New Guinea. The author also presents a snapshot of the activities of a Wellington-based foreign service officer during the period he worked closely with the Foreign Minister on the sporting-contact issue in the lead-up to the Commonwealth Games in 1990. He also provides a personal perspective on New Zealand's foreign policy inthe modern era.
