    Title: China at the Crossroads : What the Third Plenum Means for China, Nz, & the World
    Author: HARRIS ED ED

    China is at the crossroads. After decades of breakneck development it is facing growing problems. These range from corruption, unrest and pollution to uneven, unsustainable growth. If these problems are solved China is set to become a strong, wealthy centre of power. If they are not it will face years of uncertainty and stress. Either way its development will have a major impact on New Zealand, whose number one trading partner is now China.

    In late 2013 China’s new leader President Xi Jinping took a big step. He asked a plenary meeting of the ruling Communist Party’s Central Committee to agree on a lengthy new reform agenda. But will the reforms of this Third Plenum put China on the right track? Assessments differ. Some see them as offering just the breakthrough China needs. Others regard them as being too limited by far.

    In July 2014 the New Zealand Contemporary China Research Centre at Victoria University of Wellington held a conference to discuss the Third Plenum and China’s current condition. An outstanding group of specialists from New Zealand, Australia, China and the United States met to assess critical issues and trends. This book is an account of the conference and its conclusions. It is essential reading for anyone concerned about China and impact on New Zealand.

    Author: ZHIYUE BO

    China–US Relations in Global Perspective features world-class scholars and practitioners from China, the United States, New Zealand,
    Australia, Singapore and other countries on issues related to the bilateral relationship, and is based on an international conference
    that was held on 8–9 October 2015, immediately after Chinese President Xi Jinping’s first state visit to the United States in September
    2015. The book not only looks at China–US relations from the perspectives of the two giants but also offers an opportunity to
    examine the bilateral relationship from third parties such as countries in the Asia-Pacific region and Oceania.
    ‘Professor Bo’s volume adds a fresh dimension to discussions of US–Chinese relations: The essays present voices from across the Asia-
    Pacific, assessing Sino-American ties and tensions from diverse perspectives, ranging from India to the Koreas and across economic
    topics from infrastructure to trade. In doing so, the Contemporary China Research Centre demonstrates New Zealand’s ability to
    make outsized contributions.’

    Title: Christchurch 22.2 Beyond the Cordon
    Author: NZ POLICE

    The Christchurch earthquake of 22 February 2011 was one of the worst natural disasters in New Zealand's history. The quake devastated New Zealand's second biggest city and caused significant damage to infrastructure both within Christchurch itself and its immediate surrounds. After declining several quake books - none of which felt right - Hachette NZ was approached by the Canterbury District Police to produce a high-quality book of colour photography taken by Police forensic photographers, documenting the response to the earthquake. All royalties from the book are being donated to the Christchurch Family Help Trust. The 208-page, book is chock full of stunning, evocative photographs shot by police photographers. They were primarily taken throughout the rescue operation and they were pretty much the only photographers allowed to remain and work inside the cordoned area of the CBD. They had long-term access to all the major rescue sites and have literally hundreds of stunning images documenting the rescue effort, the work of emergency services personnel from both New Zealand and around the world, as well the devastating upheaval the cityscape. The photos will be accompanied by captions and brief comments from the photographers, documenting their personal responses to 'Operation Earthquake'. As well there will be a foreword by high-profile Canterbury District Police Superintendent Dave Cliff and two poems by Gary McCormick. This is the book that feels right. This will be the definitive work of the Christchurch disaster.

    Title: Christchurch Fiasco
    Author: MILES SARAH

    There has been much media activity both in the press and on Radio since the Canterbury earthquakes in September 2010 and February 2011. The two-year aftermath of those earthquakes offered the Author a rare opportunity to examine aspects that the media did not cover, such as the national policies and effectiveness of government funding and management of catastrophe on a national scale. She has also made an appraisal of the performance of the corporate insurance industry involved in the event. Her findings are both surprising and disturbing. This is not a book about idealistic sociological concepts, but a revelation of actual government administrative failure and financial risk-taking, in concert with corporate malfeasance. The book discloses the failures and fallacies of current disaster management strategies such as funding, insurance and re-insurance - not only in terms of the huge financial implications but also the effects these aspects have on the 'recovery' phase. The author examines international experiences of catastrophe from the viewpoint of government policies and funding strategies. She points to a fundamental conflict of interest between corporatism and the need for rapid recovery in the interests of both the affected public, business interests and the economy. Woven into the government strategy are assumptions about the corporate insurance industry as a 'partner in recovery' but the author's investigations into the performance of this industry uncover a disregard for both the economic recovery needs and the plight of the population, in the interests of maximising corporate profits. She explores the history of catastrophes in other countries and concludes that the culture of betrayal and avoidance by the global insurance industry is widespread. This is the side of catastrophe management that the public has not considered.

    Author: PICKLES KATIE

    The devastating earthquake that hit Christchurch in 2011 did more than rupture the surface of the city, argues historian Katie Pickles. It created a definitive endpoint to a history shaped by omission, by mythmaking, and by ideological storytelling.

    In this multi-layered BWB Text, Pickles uncovers what was lost that February day, drawing out the different threads of Christchurch’s colonial history and demonstrating why we should not attempt to knit them back together. This is an incisive analysis of the way a city’s character is interlinked with its geo-spatial appearance: when the latter changes, so too must the former.

    Title: Christchurch: an Artists' Tribute
    Author: ROBINSON DENIS (COMPILED BY)

    Denis Robinson has compiled a moving tribute to Christchurch with a collection of paintings of the city as it was before the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011. He approached 19 artists - Cantabrians, past or present, or frequent visitors from other places - to request paintings that showed beautiful and evocative views of the city and its neo-gothic stone and character buildings. Many artists returned to old sketchbooks, to discover drawings still waiting to be painted, and these new artworks sit alongside paintings completed in earlier days and others sourced especially for inclusion in this book. The artists give personal introductions to their works, which range in place from the central city to the outlying coastal suburbs, including Banks Peninsula and the port of Lyttelton. There is a great variety of painting technique and mediums, including pen and ink, watercolour, oil, acrylic and pastel. Some of the works are highly realistic, while others are more impressionistic in style. Together they form a stunning and poignant collection of New Zealand art and a warm and positive tribute to Christchurch, helping to preserve the past of this beautiful garden city for generations to come. With a foreword from Mayor Bob Parker, this is a book that will be treasured by Cantabrians and visitors to Christchurch alike.

    ISBN: 9780947493622
    Title: Cities in NZ: Preferences Patterns & Possibilities
    Author: HOWDEN-CHAPMAN PHILIPPA; EARLY LISA; OMBLER JENNY

    Most New Zealanders live in urban areas. We want our cities to be prosperous, socially inclusive, and enjoyable places to be. We need our cities to be healthy environments, responsive to population growth, and resilient to natural disasters and climate change. The people who take decisions about our cities, including local and central governments and all citizens, have opportunities to influence and shape sustainable cities where residents flourish.

    This book outlines the latest thinking about the preferences people have for their urban life, the patterns of urban development in Aotearoa, and the possibilities for our cities in the future. It takes a systems view, where all the components that make up the city are interlinked, so that a decision to change one aspect of the urban fabric can also affect other parts of the city system. Where we choose to build new houses and apartments affects housing and transport costs, access of the residents to social amenities, opportunities to increase healthy modes of transport such as walking and cycling, the amount of air pollution, and many other factors.

    To explore the diverse aspects of New Zealand cities, the chapters in this book draw on the knowledge of a wide range of experts. They are researchers, economists and scientists from universities, including Otago, Auckland, Massey, Victoria and Canterbury, and from Waiti, NIWA, and Motu Economic and Public Policy Research. The book considers the experiences of urban Maori, the creation of community, issues for urban transport and infrastructure, housing and housing affordability, ideas for compact cities, urban planning and governance, and what growing cities mean for our environment.

    Cities in New Zealand is a call to everyone who has a stake in our cities to take hopeful action, so that our cities provide us, our children, and grandchildren with places for a good life.

Her penetrating analysis of the social and legal processes by which the conviction of Peter Ellis was obtained, and has been repeatedly upheld, has far-reaching implications - not only for our justice system, but for the way in which we see ourselves.

    Title: Cleansing the Colony: Transporting Convicts from NZ to Van Diemen's Land
    Author: HARMAN KRISTYN

    Everyone knows Australia was once a penal colony, but few realize that New Zealand prisoners were sent there. During the mid-nineteenth century at least 110 people were transported from New Zealand to serve time as convict labourers in the penal colony of Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania). Even more were sentenced by colonial judges to the harsh punishment of transportation, but somehow managed to avoid being sent across the Tasman Sea. In examining the remarkable experiences of unremarkable people, this fascinating book provides insights into the lives of people like William Phelps Pickering, a self-made entrepreneur turned criminal; Margaret Reardon, a potential accomplice to murder and convicted perjurer; and Te Kumete, a Maori warrior transported as a rebel. Their stories, and others like them, reveal a complex society overseen by a governing class intent on cleansing the colony of what was considered to be a burgeoning criminal underclass. This lively book also offers insights into penal servitude in Van Diemen's Land as revealed through the lived experiences of the men and sole woman transported from New Zealand. Whether Maori men serving time for political infractions, white-collar criminals, labourers, vagrants or the soldiers sent to fight the empire's wars, each convict's experiences reveal something about the way in which the British Empire sought to discipline, punish and reform those who trespassed against it.

    How does one describe the wonderful spirit of who we are? How can we discover what we are capable of? How do we unearth our magnificent potential when most of us have difficulty building our self-confidence? For those searching for a deeper understanding of the mystery of life, ColdLight presents knowledge and awareness that answers questions which the reader may have.

    ColdLight presents thirty-one Spiritual Treatises about the inter-relationship of our physical world with worlds beyond. These teachings come on a vibration of inspiration that fills the horizon of my mind with a sense of purpose and certainty that life continues beyond the physical world.

    The treatises of ColdLight are given to me by spiritual teachers who have an emanating presence that is strong and commanding, strict and just. They come only to teach and their teachings reflect their deep and abiding caring for all people upon earth. When they depart they fill my mind and heart with a sense of oneness with the love and life of the universe and they replace any energy I have expended.

    ColdLight is the third book of a trilogy of spiritual teachings. The first book, LeapFog, is the story of spiritual awakenings. The second book, HeartFelt, is the story of spiritual communication. ColdLight shares the story of its birth and its Spiritual Treatises encourage, direct and help us understand our place and role in physical life and the greater life of spiritual worlds.

    “The world of spirit is a vast expanse with a vast amount of knowledge. What knowledge, what learning do you need? Do you want knowledge that helps you live well upon earth? Do you want knowledge that helps you ascend from earth? Do you want knowledge that explains your history and place in the universes of the greater life?

    We stretch out our hands to draw you on with us so we may travel together with no division between worlds, just a natural blending of life in all its guises.”

    Title: Collected Letters of Katherine Mansfield VOL 3, 1919-1920
    Author: MANSFIELD KATHERINE

    The third volume of the Collected Letters of Katherine Mansfield covers the eight months she spent in Italy and the South of France between the English summers of 1919 and 1920. It was a time of intense personal reassessment and distress. Mansfield's relationship with her husband John Middleton Murry was bitterly tested, and most of the letters in this present volume chart that rich and enduring partnership through its severest trial. This was a time, too, when Mansfield came to terms with the closing off of possibilities that her illness entailed. Without flamboyance or fuss, she felt it necessary to discard earlier loyalties and even friendships, as she sought a spiritual standpoint that might turn her illness to less negative ends. For all the grimness of this period of her life, Mansfield's letters still offer the joie de vivre and wit, self-perception and lively frankness that make her correspondence such rewarding reading--an invaluable record of a "modern" woman and her time.

    Product Description

    12 November 2015



    New Zealand was an early adopter of DNA forensic technology. It has now been 20 years since the Criminal Investigations (Bodily Samples) Act 1995 was introduced, and since then the range and power of DNA forensics, as well as the powers of law enforcers to obtain DNA samples, have expanded rapidly, raising questions about the implications for criminal justice and human rights.

    This book, sponsored by the Law Foundation, provides a framework for discussion of these implications, and makes recommendations for how to proceed with laws about the collection and retention of DNA samples from those suspected of committing a crime. It covers the history of the science and law underpinning the use of DNA forensic technology (including comparison with other jurisdictions); the balancing of a suspect’s rights with the public interest in reducing crime; and such issues as the DNA sampling of children and youth, familial searching, and the retention of DNA from non-convicted persons.


    Dr Nessa Lynch is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Law at Victoria University of Wellington. She researches and teaches in the areas of crime and justice, particularly youth justice, sentencing, and child protection.

    Dr Liz Campbell is a Senior Lecturer in Criminal Law and Evidence at the University of Edinburgh. Her principal areas of research are criminal law and justice, with a particular interest in the legal responses to organised crime, DNA databases, and the presumption of innocence.

    Title: Colorful History of Popular Delusions
    Author: BARTHOLOMEW ROBERT E & HASSALL PETER

    This eclectic history of unusual crowd behavior describes a rich assortment of mass phenomena ranging from the amusing and quirky to the shocking and deplorable. What do fads, crazes, manias, urban legends, moral panics, riots, stampedes, and other mass expressions of emotion have in common? By creating a typology of such behavior, past and present, the authors show how common extraordinary group reactions to fear or excitement are. And they offer insights into how these sometimes dangerous mob responses can be avoided.&

    We may not be surprised to read about the peculiarities of the European Middle Ages, when superstition was commonplace: like the meowing nuns of France, "tarantism" (a dancing mania) in Italy, or the malicious anti-Semitic poison-well scares. But similar phenomena show up in our own era. Examples include the social-networking hysteria of 2012, which resulted in uncontrollable twitching by teenage girls in Leroy, NY; the "phantom bus terrorist" of 2004 in Vancouver, Canada; and the itching outbreak of 2000 in South Africa.&

    Vivid, detailed, and thoroughly researched, this is a fascinating overview of collective human behavior in its many unusual forms.

    Title: Complacent Nation
    Author: ELLIS GAVIN

    New Zealanders are too complacent about the continuing erosion of their right to know what government is doing on their behalf. Political risk has become a primary consideration in whether official information requests will be met, and successive governments have allowed free speech rights to be overridden.

    Drawing on decades of experience as a journalist and editor, Gavin Ellis chronicles the patterns of erosion and calls for entrenchment of the Bill of Rights Act. As supreme law, it would set a high bar that politicians must hurdle before freedom of expression could be curtailed.

    Title: Connecting Curriculum, Linking Learning
    Author: FRASER DEBORAH; VIV AITKEN; BARBARA WHITE

    Teachers and principals know that students learn best when involved, challenged and inspired. An integrated curriculum offers teachers the tools to engage, extend and enthuse students. Yet today's curriculum seems to be narrowing and becoming restrictive. Assessment-driven teaching, reporting to standards and a pronounced emphasis on individual learning in numeracy and literacy now hold sway. Is it possible to balance standards with innovation? What scope is there for teachers and principals to use their initiative? And what of children's learning as they engage in a curriculum that matters to them? Here, an integrated curriculum-negotiated, issues driven, focused on relevant learning areas, with teachers scaffolding learning-offers exciting potential while still enabling the learning of important skills in literacy and numeracy. But there is a chasm in the literature on curriculum integration. Connecting Curriculum, Linking Learning bridges that chasm. Based on current New Zealand classroom research, this book provides vivid portraits of teachers' practice, and reveals the strengths and weaknesses of an integrated approach. Featuring drama as inquiry alongside other arts-inspired approaches to integration, Connecting Curriculum, Linking Learning reflects the ethos of the New Zealand curriculum.

    Title: Conversation with My Country
    Author: DUFF ALAN

    A fresh, personal account of New Zealand, now, from one of our hardest-hitting writers.

    Following Once Were Warriors, Alan Duff wrote Maori- The Crisis and the Challenge. His controversial comments shook the country. A quarter of a century later, New Zealand and Maoridom are in a very different place. And so is Alan - he has published many more books, had two films made of his works, founded the Duffy Books in Homes literacy programme and endured 'some less inspiring moments, including bankruptcy'.

    Returned from living in France, he views his country with fresh eyes, as it is now- homing in on the crises in parenting, our prisons, education and welfare systems, and a growing culture of entitlement that entraps Pakeha and Maori alike.

    Never one to shy away from being a whetstone on which others can sharpen their own opinions, Alan tells it how he sees it.

    Title: Conversations About Indigenous Rights: The Un-Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous People & Aotearoa NZ
    Author: KATENE SELWYN & TAONUI RAWIRI

    The UN declaration on the Rights of Indigenous peoples is a deeply significant document. In 2007, then UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon described its signing as an "historic moment when UN Member States and indigenous peoples reconciled with their painful histories and resolved to move forward together on the path of human rights, justice and development for all".This book reflects on the tenth anniversary of the UN General Assembly's adoption of the Declaration and examines its relevance in New Zealand. It shows the strong alignment between the Treaty of Waitangi and the Declaration, and examines how the Declaration assists the interpretation and application of Treaty principles of partnership, protection and participation. Starting from a range of viewpoints and disciplines, the authors agree that in Aotearoa New Zealand the journey to full implementation is now well underway, but warn that greater political leadership, willpower, resources and a stronger government commitment is needed.
