    Title: Climate Dispossessed: Justice for the Pacific in Aotearoa?
    Author: CROSSEN TEALL

    The world is heating up beyond the capacity of some countries to cope. Entire populations of Pacific islands are threatened, jeopardising the sovereign rights of these countries and the security of the region. This book explores what a just response to the risk of climate change displacement in the Pacific could look like.

    It¿s a difficult conversation. For many Pacific islands, talking about plans to abandon their country risks providing the international community with an excuse to not reduce emissions. Yet internal climate change displacement cannot be avoided, and cross-border displacement may become a reality without urgent climate action. The risk of this dispossession presents profound questions of life, identity and justice for all of us living in the Pacific, in light of the fundamental principles of international law and our commitments in Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

    Title: Cohousing for Life
    Author: ALLISON ROBIN

    In "Cohousing for Life", architect Robin Allison describes her journey from lonely mother of two in the suburbs to determined driver of the development of New Zealand's first cohousing community. It is a very personal story of a collective endeavour, a heroic journey of despair and triumph, as the obstacles mount and success at times feels far from certain. "Cohousing for Life" is also a distillation of what has been learnt: from formulating an inspiring vision to community governance and decision making; from community design principles to participatory design processes; from legal and financial structures to reflections on power and leadership. Robin details the key elements and structures that were critical to achieving their goal, allowing a group of diverse individuals with ordinary lives and skills to work together over many years to create a large, innovative, housing development.

    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: 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.

    Wallace Bain retired in early 2020 after 28 distinguished years as a Coroner, most recently in Rotorua. During these years Mr Bain developed a national reputation for his sensitivity and compassion in dealing with difficult cases such as those of Nia Glassie and Moko Rangitoheriri. That a child is killed in New Zealand as a result of abuse every five weeks he finds “unacceptable”. He has also developed a reputation for being “a Coroner on the warpath” for his forthright demands from time to time that New Zealand’s laws and regulations be changed to protect ordinary citizens. His work as a Coroner, says Wallace Bain, has been to speak for the dead to take care of the living.

In this little known work, Gee describes in fascinating detail his boyhood and family life in West Auckland and offers illuminating insights into some of the creative forces which have driven some of his fiction: the creek with its dangers - where, he writes, he glimpsed 'sex and death' - the kitchen with his mother preparing dinner in the gathering dark, and his elderly uncle, later the model for the magnificent Plumb.

    Title: Criminal Justice: A NZ Introduction
    Author: GILBERT JARROD & NEWBOLD GREG EDS

    In this major new textbook, leading scholars from criminology, history, journalism, law, psychology, sociology and other fields take us inside New Zealand¿s criminal justice system. The authors begin with an introduction to the history and current state of crime, policing and prisons in New Zealand; they then explain the workings of criminal procedure, from evidence to sentencing; and finally they address key current issues such as Maori and the justice system, youth and gangs, psychology and the media. This book tackles the big questions: How can crime be explained? Is crime rising or falling and if so, why? How do the police operate? How do the courts work? What is the meaning of a `life¿ sentence? What is the link between crime and mental instability? Why are Maori over-represented in the criminal justice system? How do we deal with youthful offenders? How do judicial miscarriages arise? Do the stories we read about crime in the media reflect reality? And how does justice operate in the criminal underworld? This book is an important new introduction to New Zealand¿s criminal justice system.

Cuba Street has iconic status in Wellington - its colour and character over the last few decades have made it a favourite spot for locals and visitors alike. From the late lamented Matterhorn and Mighty Mighty, to Midnight Espresso, Logan Brown and Ombra, the street is filled with places and people worth remembering.
    Beth Brash is a Wellington-based foodie and blogger. She knows the local food scene extremely well, having been the manager of the popular Beervana festival and now programme manager for Visa Wellington On a Plate. She and her photographer sister, Alice Lloyd, spent a summer capturing the essence of Cuba Street, visiting all the eateries and off-beat shops, with Alice taking the photographs and Beth researching, interviewing and gathering recipes. The fascinating result is The Cuba Street Project.
    Great production values (hardback with blunt cut edges) and a very contemporary look make this a highly desirable package.

    Author: BURDETT LANCE

    ‘Anxiety, depression and suicide affect all families. They’re in my family, they’re in my friends’ families, they’re probably in your family. And, right now, you are thinking about someone you know who is going through or has gone through one of those three things.’

    Lance Burdett started writing this book while he was studying for a diploma in positive psychology, then something tragic happened – his seventeen-year-old niece took her own life. From that point on, his world was irreparably changed. This loss proved to him that adversity can hit anyone at any time, often unexpectedly. The loss of his niece, combined with Lance’s own experience of depression spurred him on to share the lessons he’s learned about how the brain works, knowledge which he’s gathered throughout his years both as a police negotiator and later as a resilience and wellness specialist.

    In this book, he explains how to control your thoughts, how to reduce the impact of negative emotions, and how to manage your personal wellbeing so that you won’t ‘fall over’ as he once did. He will also show readers how to identify when somebody else may be struggling with negative thoughts and how to reach out to them in a way that’s safe for both of you.

    Many books have been written about dementia, usually dealing with the symptoms and the medical side of the condition. But here is a thoroughly practical book for carers and families, written by someone with first-hand experience of caring for a person with dementia over many years. Drawing on real-life situations, this book brings together a wealth of information not easily found elsewhere. It provides solutions to a vast range of situations the carer is likely to encounter -- from organising legal and financial affairs, to ways of coping with the symptoms of dementia, such as aggression, hallucinations, incontinence and decreasing mental powers. It also contains thousands of hints for dealing with dementia on a daily basis, including adapting the home environment; showering, dressing, eating and drinking; keeping the mind stimulated; and communicating well with family, friends and professionals, as well as with each other. The personal stories throughout the book are inspiring, sobering and at times amusing. This book is full of the wisdom and insights of experienced carers, and has much to offer anyone new to this role.

    Author: JOHNSON EMMA EDITOR

    We will all die. Yet we don't talk about death and dying very much. Currently, and for the most part, a small group of people manage death for us behind closed doors. We are increasingly unlikely to know what options are available to us and those we care about. So, how can we prepare well? Are our collective and individual needs being met? The ways we approach death - as a subject and in our practices - reveal much about our values and how we live. With an increasingly diverse and ageing population, advances in technology and medical care, and the social, economic and environmental challenges facing us, it is important to openly discuss how we plan for death as individuals and as a society.

    Title: Decolonisation in Aotearoa: Education, Research & Practice
    Author: HUTCHINGS JESSICA (ED)

    This book examines decolonisation and Maori education in Aotearoa New Zealand in ways that seeks to challenge, unsettle and provoke for change.

    Editors Jessica Hutchings and Jenny Lee-Morgan have drawn together leading Maori writers and intellectuals on topics that are at the heart of a decolonising education agenda, from tribal education initiatives to media issues, food sovereignty, wellbeing, Christianity, tikanga and more. A key premise is that colonisation excludes holistic and Maori experiences and ways of knowing, and continues to assert a deep influence on knowledge systems and ways of living and being, and that efforts to combat its impact must be broad and comprehensive.

    The book presents a kaupapa Maori and decolonised agenda for Maori education. The writers put kaupapa Maori into practice through a purakau (narrative) approach to explore the diverse topics in a range of styles.

    The first edition of A Dictionary of the New Zealand Language, the work of William Williams, Archdeacon (and later Bishop) of Waiapu, appeared in 1852 - more than thirty years before the publication of the first part of the Oxford English Dictionary. Ever since then students of Maori language have found Williams' dictionary indispensable. The third (1871) and fourth (1892) editions were revised by William Leonard, son of William. He, too, was Archdeacon (and later Bishop) of Waiapu. The fifth, much enlarged edition, was edited by Herbert, grandson of Williams, and, inevitably it seems, Bishop of Waiapu.

    Incorporating material provided by such scholars as Eldson Best, A.S. Atkinson, Edward Tregear, Williams Colenso and the Rev. Mohi Turei, and drawing examples largely from the writings of Maori authorities including Te Rangikaheke, Te Rangihaeata, Te Whatahoro and others, the fifth edition was virtually a new work, and an enduring tribute to the linguistic scholarship of the Williams' lineage.

    The latest book by eight times number one best-selling author Dr Libby, Women’s Wellness Wisdom, is, quite simply, the book that every woman needs to read. In this unique approach to wellness, designed to specifically address the issues that women of all ages face, readers gain a deep understanding of their body and what it needs in order to not just survive but to thrive. Often, we are simply told to eat “healthily” because it is “good for us.” Rarely does a book this beautiful explain the processes of the body, and how they’re all interdependent on each other, while offering real guidance on how we can support ourselves in such succinct and easy to understand language. From over two decades of research, Dr Libby takes all the guesswork out of being a woman, providing insight into the questions that plague western women around the world, including: Why some people emotionally eat and how to end this, why our skin breaks out and why we might lose our hair, how estrogen and progesterone affect our bodies and our minds, why we believe ‘if I don’t do it, it won’t get done’, why we store body fat in a certain place and what we can do about it, why our liver is the number one organ to look after, and why we have big conversations at night, rather than at breakfast. With interactive worksheets, real-life examples and step-by-step guides to making life-transforming changes, Women’s Wellness Wisdom is both practical and inspiring. Illuminating how women can thrive in today’s fast-paced modern world, and filled from front to back with Dr Libby’s unique blend of nutrition, biochemical science and emotional care, this beautifully illustrated book is truly the definitive guide for women about looking after their bodies, minds and hearts.

Leading research scientist Mike Berridge explores this troubled ground from a rare vantage point. His descriptions of stunning new advances in human health are offset by hard questions about society’s ability to keep pace. This exploration brings us into contact with hotly contested public health issues, such as cancer treatment, sugar consumption, and water fluoridation. It is also a heartfelt plea to place robust and impartial science at the centre of our thinking for the future.

    The songs are given context by historical notes and illuminated through a number of previously unseen archival photos, and over 20 new paintings by Bob Kerr.

    2015 marks the 150th year since Wellington became the capital of New Zealand – a fitting time to release The Empire City.

    This collection of personal essays, a first of its kind, re-imagines the idea of place for an emerging generation of readers and writers. It offers glimpses into where we are now and how that feels, and opens up the range and kinds of stories we can conceive of telling about living here. Contributors include Tony Ballantyne, Sally Blundell, Alex Calder, Annabel Cooper, Tim Corballis, Martin Edmond, Ingrid Horrocks, Lynn Jenner, Cherie Lacey, Tina Makereti, Harry Ricketts, Jack Ross, Alice Te Punga Somerville, Giovanni Tiso, Ian Wedde, Lydia Wevers, and Ashleigh Young.

    Ingrid Horrocks is the author of a travel memoir, Travelling with Augusta: 1835 and 1999 (Victoria University Press, 2003), and two collections of poetry. She did a PhD at Princeton University and now teaches creative nonfiction and English at Massey University, Wellington. She has published articles in various journals and her book, Women Wanderers and the Writing of Mobility, 1784–1814, is forthcoming with Cambridge University Press. More recently she has become interested in exploring relationships between mobility and place in a New Zealand context, as well as in bringing critical and creative writing into closer conversation. Recent projects a pair of essays which take Martin Edmond’s work as their springboard and which appeared respectively in Sport 43: New Zealand New Writing and Biography: An Interdisciplinary Journal.

    Cherie Lacey received her PhD (Film) from the University of Auckland and MA (Literature) from Victoria University of Wellington. Her research explores the ways in which place affects our psyche, drawing primarily from psychoanalytic and postcolonial theory. More recently, she has approached these ideas through creative nonfiction writing, and is currently based at the International Institute of Modern Letters (Victoria University of Wellington), where she is writing a memoir of a failed psychoanalysis. Cherie also lectures in Media Studies at Victoria University of Wellington.

It is no coincidence that calls to restrict national borders are intensifying at a time when people are more mobile than ever. But closed borders are no more imaginable in the foreseeable future than perfectly open borders. The principal question is who is permitted to enter a nation and what standing they have within. And that question can be answered fairly or unfairly.

    Fair Borders draws together academic and nonacademic writers to discuss whether New Zealand’s immigration policy offers a ‘fair go’ to those just arriving, and to those who arrived a long time ago. This edited collection includes new and diverse perspectives that go beyond the boundaries of popular debate, in which migrants are too often treated as numbers, not people.

    Title: False Divides
    Author: LOPESI LANA

    Te Moana Nui a Kiwa is the great ocean continent. While it is common to understand ocean and seas as something that divides land, for those Indigenous to the Pacific or the Moana, it was traditionally a connector and an ancestor. Imperialism in the Moana, however, created false divides between islands and separated their peoples.

    In the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, these connections are becoming visible again, partly through the use of globalising technologies. In this BWB Text, Lana Lopesi argues that while colonisation created divisions across Te Moana Nui a Kiwa, the adaptability of Moana peoples is now turning the ocean back into the unifying continent that it once was.

    Title: Family Trusts: The Must-Have NZ Guide
    Author: HAWES MARTIN

    In 2021, The Trusts Act 2019 comes into force. This is the first major trust law reform in New Zealand in 70 years. Many of the key changes are aimed at making trust law more accessible to both lawyers and the public, strengthening the ability of beneficiaries to hold trustees to account.

    Anyone involved in a family trust will need to find out about the changes introduced by this new Act. Many will choose to wind up the trust, and those that keep them will need to change how they manage them, so this book is an essential tool.

    A family trust offers you the benefits, use and control of your assets. Clear and straight-forward, and aimed at the layperson, Family Trusts includes up-to-date advice by New Zealand's leading financial writer, with real-life examples and answers to commonly asked questions throughout.

    This book has sold well over 120,000 copies since it was first published and is an essential book for anyone curious about family trusts or involved with a trust.

    'In my experience, 75 per cent of family trusts in New Zealand are so badly arranged or managed that they could easily be attacked and overturned in court... managing a trust badly is a bit like insuring the contents of your house but then going on holiday and leaving the doors wide open,' says Martin Hawes.

    This is the one book anyone involved with a family trust should own.

    Title: Fridays with Jim: Conversations about Our Country with Jim Bolger
    Author: COHEN DAVID

    A self-taught son of Irish immigrants, devout Catholic, King Country farmer and farming lobbyist, Jim Bolger entered New Zealand political life in the 1970s. He was a flinty Minister of Labour under Robert Muldoon and Prime Minister from 1990 to 1997. As ambassador to Washington, he helped create warmer relations with the United States. In recent years, he has chaired boards, has been the chancellor of the University of Waikato and marked more than a half-century of marriage to Joan. Never given to orthodoxies, yet staunchly National in his politics, in his still-energetic eighties he remains an impressively brisk progressive thinker. For six months he regularly sat down on Fridays with the writer David Cohen to reflect on his life and times, our nation and the world. Fridays with Jim reveals a quintessential man of the old New Zealand who is fully in sync with the new New Zealand, and with plenty of ideas about where it's all heading.
