  • 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.'

  • Field Guide to New Zealand Geology
    Field Guide to New Zealand Geology
    This is the first field guide written for the general public and beginners in geology in New Zealand. Now fully revised and updated, it shows travellers in New Zealand something of the tremendous variety of our rocks, minerals and fossils and describes what to look for in many areas where rock formations are prominent. It covers the history of New Zealand from its beginnings on the sea floor some 600 million years ago to its present patchwork landscape of volcano, range and plain. This land was formed from many different layers of rock - volcanic flows, forest debris, ocean mud. All these have special characteristics, which are explained and illustrated to enable readers to find the layers and understand their origins and what they can tell us about the landscapes of the past. The crystals that grew in the rocks and the remains of living creatures that were preserved are also illustrated and described. Written in simplified terms, it includes an introductory chapter on general geology, A geological time chart and quick reference maps of the North Island and the South Island for travellers.

  • Frontier Shores: Collection, Entanglement and the Manufacture of Identity in Oceania
    Frontier Shores: Collection, Entanglement and the Manufacture of Identity in Oceania
    In the late nineteenth century, the growing discipline of anthropology was both a powerful tool of colonial control and an ideological justification for it. As European empires and their commercial reach expanded, different populations became intertwined in relationships of exchange and power. "Frontier Shores" accompanies the exhibitionat the Bard Graduate Center Gallery and draws from the collection of the American Museum of Natural History. Focusing on Oceania the vast region encompassing Australia, New Zealand, and the tropical Pacific Islands it examines crosscultural contact and the contest for power between indigenous and non-indigenous people. Many of Oceania s peoples were perceived in mainstream European scientific thought as belonging to humanity s lowest tiers. Although these notions have long since been discredited, Shawn C. Rowlands traces their impact on the development of anthropology, colonial policy, and national identity. Ultimately, "Frontier Shores" reveals important processes of othering and the difficult issue of manufacturing identity and authenticity."
