• Asians and the New Multiculturalism in Aotearoa New Zealand
    Asians and the New Multiculturalism in Aotearoa New Zealand
    Asians and the New Multiculturalism in Aotearoa New Zealand presents thought-provoking new research on New Zealand's fastest-growing demographic - the geographically, nationally and historically diverse Asian communities. What kind of multicultural framework best suits New Zealand's rapidly expanding ethnic diversity? Can the Treaty of Waitangi - initially set up to accommodate British settlers and to recognise the tangata whenua - serve as the basis for New Zealand's immigration policy in the new millennium? Could all citizens embrace multiculturalism? Aotearoa New Zealand is a fusion of indigenous, settler and immigrant populations. This collection examining Asian communities in Aotearoa highlights the unresolved tensions between a dynamic biculturalism and the recognition of other ethnic minorities that are increasingly asserting themselves. Multiculturalism and Asian-ness are addressed together for the first time in this articulate addition to the ongoing debate about the population diversity of Aotearoa New Zealand.

  • Being Pakeha Now Reflections and Recollections of a White Native
    Being Pakeha Now Reflections and Recollections of a White Native
    A reprint of Michael King's seminal book on what it means to be a non-Maori New Zealander. First published in 1985, Being Pakeha became a kiwi classic, a strong reply both to Maori who were asserting their own identity and also to Pakeha who were mumbling that they didn't have a strong culture or identity of their own. Being Pakeha Now was updated in 1999 and is being reprinted again with a foreword by Kerry Howe, Professor of History at Massey University and author of The Quest for Origins. Because of Michael's untimely death, this book is the closest we'll have to memoir by this major New Zealand historian and biographer. In Being Pakeha Now Michael King carries the cultural debate forward. While recognising and respecting the place of Maori in New Zealand, he argues that Pakeha too belong inescapably to this country and have no other home. Part memoir, part apologia and part celebration of a country and its peoples, Being Pakeha Now is an exciting and controversial book that travels into the hinterland of the national psyche.

  • Childhoods Growing Up in New Zealand
    Childhoods Growing Up in New Zealand
    Children are citizens with autonomy and rights identified by international agencies and United Nations conventions, but these rights are not readily enforceable. Some of the worst levels of child poverty and poor health in the OECD, as well as exceptionally high child suicide rates, exist in Aotearoa New Zealand today. More than a quarter of children are experiencing a childhood of hardship and deprivation in a context of high levels of inequality. Maori children face particular challenges. In a country that characterises itself as 'a good place to bring up children', this is of major concern. The essays in this book are by leading researchers from several disciplines and focus on all of our children and young people, exploring such topics as the environment (economic, social and natural), social justice, children's voices and rights, the identity issues they experience and the impact of rapid societal change. What children themselves have to say is insightful and often deeply moving.

  • Children of Rogernomics: a Neoliberal Generation Leaves School
    Children of Rogernomics: a Neoliberal Generation Leaves School
    Between 2003 and 2007, the authors investigated what life was like for 93 young people coming to adulthood in the wake of Rogernomics. Participants were interviewed in their final year of high school and again 12-18 months later. This book is the result. The lives of these young people are brought into sharp focus revealing the powerful effects of neoliberal ideas. Their stories show how neoliberalism obscures the structural basis of inequalities and insists that failure to achieve a straightforward transition from school to tertiary education to employment is the result of personal inadequacy. Institutions drawing on neoliberal ideas create additional barriers for the groups for whom inequality matters most - young Pasifika and Maori, and young working-class women and men. The stories are authentic and hard-hitting. Importantly, they also show how ordinary lives can be inspirational, as young people attempt to work and rework the possibilities, opportunities and constraints of their times.

  • China at the Crossroads: What the Third Plenum Means for China New Zealand and the World
    China at the Crossroads: What the Third Plenum Means for China New Zealand and the World
    China is at the crossroads. After decades of breakneck development it is facing growing problems. These range from corruption, unrest and pollution to uneven, unsustainable growth. If these problems are solved China is set to become a strong, wealthy centre of power. If they are not it will face years of uncertainty and stress. Either way its development will have a major impact on New Zealand, whose number one trading partner is now China. In late 2013 China's new leader President Xi Jinping took a big step. He asked a plenary meeting of the ruling Communist Party's Central Committee to agree on a lengthy new reform agenda. But will the reforms of this Third Plenum put China on the right track? Assessments differ. Some see them as offering just the breakthrough China needs. Others regard them as being too limited by far. In July 2014 the New Zealand Contemporary China Research Centre at Victoria University of Wellington held a conference to discuss the Third Plenum and China's current condition. An outstanding group of specialists from New Zealand, Australia, China and the United States met to assess critical issues and trends.
    This book is an account of the conference and its conclusions. It is essential reading for anyone concerned about China and impact on New Zealand.

  • 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.

  • Ettie Rout: New Zealands Safer Sex Pioneer
    Ettie Rout: New Zealands Safer Sex Pioneer
    Ettie Rout fought a battle for safer sex in the First World War - and won. She gave New Zealand the best sexual health system when its army adopted her prophylactic kit and made every soldier going on leave take one - while she was banned from the pages of the newspapers so New Zealanders wouldn't find out. In Paris, having transformed Madame Yvonne's into a safer sex brothel, she met soldiers at the railway station and convinced them to go there if they chose to have sex. Armed with a wicked sense of humour, an intolerance of hypocrisy and boundless energy, Ettie Rout proved the case for safer sex decades before the term was coined - and the soldiers loved her for it. This book celebrates an unlikely heroine of the First World War who is now internationally recognised for waging a successful public health crusade. A woman way ahead of her time.
