  • Diggers' Story: Accounts of the West Coast Gold Rushes
    Diggers' Story: Accounts of the West Coast Gold Rushes
    These fascinating 'tales and reminiscences of the Golden Coast direct from Westland's earliest pioneers' were originally compiled by Carl Pfaff for The Diggers' Story, first published in 1914 to mark the 50th anniversary of the gold rushes that transformed this remote part of New Zealand. Long out of print, the book has been thoughtfully edited and expanded for today's readers by Hokitika Museum director Julia Bradshaw. This new edition of The Diggers' Story features additional stories and information, and is enlivened by more than 160 black and white images and 32 pages of exquisite colour illustrations, many of them previously unpublished. This compelling, richly illustrated record of the gold rushes will be essential reading for anyone interested in the West Coast's explosive and romantic history.

  • Dirty Politics How Attack Politics Is Poisoning New Zealands Political Environment
    Dirty Politics How Attack Politics Is Poisoning New Zealands Political Environment
    Early in 2014, Nicky Hager was leaked a large number of email and online conversations from Cameron Slater's Whale Oil blog. Many of these were between Slater and his personal allies on the hard right, revealing an ugly and destructive style of politics. But there were also many communications with the prime minister's office and other Cabinet ministers in the National Government. They show us a side of Prime Minister John Key and his government of which most New Zealanders are completely unaware. Key has constructed an easy-going and relaxed public image, declaring to the public that 'there's no room for negative campaigning in New Zealand'. The reality is very different. His government has worked hand in hand with Slater and his collaborators in a sustained campaign of personal attacks against their political enemies, a deliberate but hidden stragegy to avoid being held responsible for negative campaigning. Dirty Politics continues the story that began in Hager's best-selling book The Hollow Men, investigating the way that underhand and deceptive politics poisons the political environment for everyone.
    If you care about integrity and ethics in politics, then this book will be disturbing but essential reading.

  • Disobedient Teaching Surviving and Creating Change in the Classroom
    Disobedient Teaching Surviving and Creating Change in the Classroom
    This book is about disobedience. Positive disobedience. Disobedience as a kind of professional behaviour. It shows how teachers can survive and even influence an education system that does staggering damage to potential. More importantly it is an arm around the shoulder of disobedient teachers who transform people's lives, not by climbing promotion ladders but by operating at the grassroots. Disobedient Teaching tells stories from the chalk face. Some are funny and some are heartbreaking, but they all happen in New Zealand schools. This book says you can reform things in a system that has become obsessed with assessment and tick-box reporting. It shows how the essence of what makes a great teacher is the ability to change educational practices that have been shaped by anxiety, ritual and convention. Disobedient Teaching argues the transformative power of teachers who think and act.

  • Fair Borders Migration Policy in the Twenty-first Century
    Fair Borders Migration Policy in the Twenty-first Century
    Debates over immigration are heating up - with grave political consequences. 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.

  • Fairness and Freedom History of Two Open Societies New Zealand and the United States
    Fairness and Freedom History of Two Open Societies New Zealand and the United States
    Fairness and Freedom compares the history of two open societies - New Zealand and the United States - with much in common. Both have democratic polities, mixed-enterprise economies, individuated societies, pluralist cultures, and a deep concern for human rights and the rule of law. But all of these elements take different forms, because constellations of value are far apart. The dream of living free is America's Polaris; fairness and natural justice are New Zealand's Southern Cross. Fischer asks why these similar countries went different ways. Both were founded by English-speaking colonists, but at different times and with disparate purposes. They lived in the first and second British Empires, which operated in very different ways. Indians and Maori were important agents of change, but to different ends. On the American frontier and in New Zealand's Bush, material possibilities and moral choices were not the same. Fischer takes the same comparative approach to parallel processes of nation-building and immigration, women's rights and racial wrongs, reform causes and conservative responses, war-fighting and peace-making, and global engagement in our own time--with similar results.
    On another level, this book expands Fischer's past work on liberty and freedom. It is the first book to be published on the history of fairness. And it also poses new questions in the old tradition of history and moral philosophy. Is it possible to be both fair and free? In a vast array of evidence, Fischer finds that the strengths of these great values are needed to correct their weaknesses. As many societies seek to become more open - never twice in the same way, an understanding of our differences is the only path to peace.

  • Feminist Judgments of Aotearoa New Zealand: Te Rino: A Two-Stranded Rope
    Feminist Judgments of Aotearoa New Zealand: Te Rino: A Two-Stranded Rope
    This edited collection asks how key New Zealand judgments might read if they were written by a feminist judge. Feminist judging is an emerging critical legal approach that works within the confines of common law legal method to challenge the myth of judicial neutrality and illustrate how the personal experiences and perspectives of judges may influence the reasoning and outcome of their decisions. Uniquely, this book includes a set of cases employing an approach based on mana wahine, the use of Maori values that recognise the complex realities of Maori women's lives. Through these feminist and mana wahine judgments, it opens possibilities of more inclusive judicial decision making for the future.

    `This project stops us in our tracks and asks us: how could things have been different? At key moments in our legal history, what difference would it have made if feminist judges had been at the tiller? By doing so, it raises a host of important questions. What does it take to be a feminist judge? Would we want our judges to be feminists and if so why? Is there a uniquely female perspective to judging?'
    Professor Claudia Geiringer, Faculty of Law, Victoria University of Wellington

    `With this book, some of our leading jurists expose the biases and power structures that underpin legal rules and the interpretation of them. Some also give voice to mana wahine perspectives on and about the law that have become invisible over time, perpetuating the impacts of colonialism and patriarchy combined on Maori women. I hope this book will be a catalyst for our nation to better understand and then seek to ameliorate these impacts.'
    Dr Claire Charters, Associate Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Auckland

    `The work is highly illuminating and is critical to the development of our legal system ... It is crucial, not only for legal education, so that students of the law open their minds to the different ways legal problems can be conceptualised and decided. It is also crucial if we are going to have a truly just legal system where all the different voices and perspectives are fairly heard.'
    Professor Mark Henaghan, Dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Otago

    `I believe this project is particularly important, as few academics or researchers in New Zealand concentrate on judicial method. I am therefore hopeful that it will provoke thoughtful debate in a critical area for society.'
