    Whispers and Vanities: Samoan Indigenous Knowledge & Religion
    This collection of essays and selected poetry responds to an address on Samoan religious culture given by Samoa's Head of State, His Highness Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Ta'isi Tupuola Tufuga Efi, to the 2009 Parliament of the World's Religions. The address challenges some fundamental aspects of and assumptions in modern Samoan indigenous religious culture. The essays and poetry form a carefully woven critique, from within and outside Samoa, of aspects of Samoa's religious and cultural values.

  • White Ghosts Yellow Peril: China and New Zealand 1790 1950
    White Ghosts Yellow Peril: China and New Zealand 1790 1950
    White Ghosts, Yellow Peril is the first book ever to explore all sides of the relationship between China and New Zealand, and the peoples of China and New Zealand, during the whole of the seven or so generations after they initially came into contact. The Qing Empire and its successor states from 1790 to 1950 were vast, complex and torn by conflict. New Zealand, meanwhile, grew into a small, prosperous, orderly province of Europe. Not until now has anyone told the story of the links and tensions between the two countries during those years so broadly and so thoroughly. The reader keen to know about this relationship will find in this book a highly readable portrait of the lives, thoughts and feelings of Chinese who came to New Zealand and New Zealanders who went to China, along with a scholarly but stimulating discussion of race relations, government, diplomacy, war, literature and the arts. White Ghosts, Yellow Peril for some years to come will be the key general text in the field of the early history of New Zealand and China.

  • Whole Intimate Mess: Motherhood Politics and Women's Writing
    Whole Intimate Mess: Motherhood Politics and Women's Writing
    'I began to pull the threads of my experience back together. Instead of divergent stories about public failure, private torment, and postnatal distress, I started telling myself a united story: the truth, or as close as I could get to it.' A Rhodes scholar and former Green MP, Holly Walker tells the story of how she became one of New Zealand's youngest parliamentarians, how motherhood intervened, and how she found solace and solidarity in the writings of women. This short book makes a passionate case for the role of literature in political change and personal resilience, and for the importance of women's voices in the public sphere.

  • Wild Blackberries
    Wild Blackberries
    A delightful memoir with recipes that explores decade by decade, era by era, what we ate, and how that food defined us.
    The preparation of food, the smells and tastes and textures, have accompanied me throughout the journeys of my life. In fact looking back the food memories have become the marker posts - defining boundaries in the years, demarcating the challenges and the changes.

    'In times of joy, food has enhanced the celebration, in times of sadness, it has coloured and comforted. And in times of anxiety and emptiness its preparation has given rhythm and meaning to the day, and its offering to others continues to bring a sense of accomplishment and fulfilment.

  • Wild Dogs Under My Skirt
    Wild Dogs Under My Skirt
    Tusiata Avia's first collection of poetry Wild Dogs Under My Skirt draws on two different cultures, and charts the sometimes painful points of their intersection. These poems are both confrontational and entertaining, raw and lyrical; they occupy legend and history ( "we are direct descendants of flesh-eaters") yet break through into an urban landscape that is just as arresting and richly patterned. Avia's poetry is alive with the energy and rhythm of performance poetry and of an oral tradition, but it also stakes out a unique physical life on the page, reshaping our language and our understanding of New Zealand culture.

  • Wild Roads a New Zealand Journey
    Wild Roads a New Zealand Journey
    Take an epic journey along New Zealand's most dangerous, infamous, remote and remarkable roads. From spectacular coastal highways to frightening alpine passes, back-country bullies to treasured pathways, these are the roads that dictate the terms of everyday life in New Zealand. Wild Roads features 60 of our wildest routes -- sometimes a pleasure to drive, other times unpredictable, exposed and treacherous ...As the author says, this is not a guide, or a history. It is a story of New Zealand roads and, through them, other stories which show that we're a nation of contrasts. The roads have been chosen not just because they are wild, but because they are wildly beautiful, or lonely, or interesting. The author has driven over them all --most are accessible by the average car, with only a few demanding something more rugged. Become a tourist in this nation of remarkable wild roads, taking the more indirect and mysterious routes -- the high roads, long and winding roads, slow roads, low roads, by-roads, roads to somewhere and roads to nowhere ...

  • Women Equality Power
    Women Equality Power
    Helen Clark has been a world leader for 36 years from first entering parliament in 1982 as a 31-year-old to being Prime Minister of New Zealand for nine years, to serving as Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme for eight years.

    One of her key focuses throughout this time has been the empowerment of women and she has paved the way for other women to step up and lead. With a foreword by the Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, this is a timely and important book.

    An analysis of Helen's speeches shows that while the position of women has improved over time, this change is very fragile and we need to keep working towards equality for women in many crucial areas.

    Women, Equality, Power also serves as a celebration of an outstanding leader who continues to strive and work for change.
