    Above the Treeline Nature Guide to the New Zealand Mountains
    New Zealand's alpine environment is challenging, not only for the humans who explore it but for the plants and animals that inhabit it. The extremes of temperature, short summers and high rates of erosion make for an uncertain environment, and the flora and fauna have evolved and adapted to it in interesting ways. Above the Treeline: A nature guide to the New Zealand mountains is a guide to the natural history of these fascinating ecosystems. It is the first book to be published that brings together the range of flora and fauna that inhabit the alpine environment. As well as our unique alpine plants, which constitute the majority of the book, this guide includes birds; frogs and lizards; butterflies, moths, grasshoppers, beetles and other invertebrates; and mosses and lichens. An informative introduction is followed by descriptions of more than 850 species, illustrated by approximately 1000 colour photographs. Written by eminent botanist and conservationist Sir Alan Mark, with contributions by Brian Patrick, Rod Morris, Mandy Tocher and David Galloway, this book is an important reference and field guide, and a celebration of the richness of New Zealand's alpine environment.

    Auckland University Press Anthology of New Zealand Literature
    From Polynesian Mythology to the Yates' Garden Guide, from Allen Curnow to Alice Tawhai, from Wiremu Te Rangikaheke's letters to Katherine Mansfield's notebooks, Maori and Pakeha New Zealanders have struggled for two and a half centuries to work the English language into some sort of truth about this place. The Auckland University Press Anthology of New Zealand Literature brings together for the first time in one volume this country's major writing, from the earliest records of exploration and encounter to the globalised, multicultural present. The editors range across fiction and nonfiction, letters and speeches, novels and stories, comics and songs to collect the heart of our literary heritage. Through an imaginative selection and illuminating introductions, Jane Stafford and Mark Williams provide new paths into our writing and our country. The Anthology of New Zealand Literature will be the indispensable introduction for years to come to what's worth reading and why.

    Beyond the Imperial Frontier: the Contest for Colonial New Zealand
    Beyond the Imperial Frontier is an exploration of the different ways Maori and Pakeha 'fronted' one another - the zones of contact and encounter - across the nineteenth century. Beginning with a pre-1840 era marked by significant cooperation, Vincent O'Malley details the emergence of a more competitive and conflicted post-Treaty world. As a collected work, these essays also chart the development of a leading New Zealand historian.

    Birds of New Zealand
    New Zealand boasts exceptional species of birds; a quarter of the birdlife lives nowhere else on the planet. With the concerted focus on bird recovery, through sanctuaries, the Department of Conservation and volunteer groups, native birds are abundant, and those struggling species are continually growing in population. Rob Suisted has captured these beautiful birds in remarkable, vibrant photographs, with individual portraits and habitat shots. The four main habitats - forest, wetlands, sea and coast, and open country are introduced by Alison Dench's thoroughly researched text. Extended captions accompany each photograph. This attractive, colourful book is a wonderful expression of New Zealand's most interesting birdlife.
