Extra! Extra! How the People Made the News

David Hastings

Extra! Extra! How the People Made the News by David HastingsFrom the mid-19th-century rivalry between the New Zealander and the Southern Cross to the 20th-century dominance of the New Zealand Herald and the Auckland Star, the story of Auckland's newspapers is an engrossing battle of wits that reveals much about the history of the people and the press in New Zealand. This comprehensively researched narrative not only tells the story of Auckland's first newspapers, but also tackles larger questions. The newspaper wars of 19-century Auckland were life-or-death struggles, with the odds heavily in favor of death. This book tells the story of the newspapers,...

Makers of Fortune

R. C. J. Stone

Makers of Fortune by R. C. J. StoneSo many businesses rose and fell in nineteenth-century Auckland that the city was called a 'graveyard of enterprise'. By far the most serious and general collapse came during the decade of depression and banking crises which overtook the whole colony after 1885. Auckland's commercial elite, which had dominated the city's business for a generation and had launched some of New Zealand's most important financial institutions, was discredited. Some of its members were impoverished. In the 1890s this failure was explained in moralistic terms. It was seen as the just penalty for speculative rashness....

Young Logan Campbell

R. C. J. Stone

Young Logan Campbell by R. C. J. StoneSir John Logan Campbell is known as the Father of Auckland; he is synonymous with that city. As this first volume of his biography shows, however, he was not particularly enamoured of a pioneering life or of the settlement in which he led it. His purpose in coming to New Zealand and remaining here was to make enough money to live the life of a leisured gentleman in Europe. By the end of this book, he seemed to have achieved his goal. Campbell left, probably, a more comprehensive set of papers than any other early settler. From them, R. C. J. Stone has told a story which not only reveals the complexities...

The Father and His Gift: John Logan Campbell's Later Years

R. C. J. Stone

The Father and His Gift: John Logan Campbell's Later Years by R. C. J. StoneFew New Zealand biographies are so rich in social and personal detail.

The final volume of Logan Campbell's life story traces his struggles not only to keep his businesses afloat but to preserve intact the One Tree Hill estate which he had determined to leave to the public of New Zealand. The number and intimacy of the papers left by Campbell have enabled Professor Stone to bring his...

Bloomsbury South: The Arts in Christchurch 1933-1953 by Peter Simpson'Why was it then that out of the hundreds of towns and universities in the English-speaking lands scattered over the seven seas, only one should at that time act as a focus of creative literature of more than local significance; that it should be in Christchurch, New Zealand, that a group of young writers had appeared who were eager to assimilate the pioneer developments in style and technique that were being made in England and America since the beginning of the century...and to give their country a new conscience and spiritual perspective?' - John Lehmann For two decades in Christchurch, New...

Friendly Fire: Nuclear Politics & the Collapse of ANZUS, 1984¿1987

Gerald Hensley

Friendly Fire: Nuclear Politics & the Collapse of ANZUS, 1984¿1987 by Gerald Hensley

In 1984, the newly elected Labour Government's antinuclear policy collided with a United States foreign policy based on nuclear deterrence. After two years of angry meetings, fraught diplomacy, and free-wheeling press conferences, this outbreak of "friendly fire" led to the unraveling of the Australia, New Zealand, United States Security Treaty (ANZUS) military alliance, established in 1951. Based on previously classified government files in New Zealand, Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom as well as interviews with key protagonists and the author's own involvement in events,...

Self Portrait by Marti Friedlander

From a childhood spent in London's rough East End to a half-century in New Zealand photographing winemakers and artists, children and kuia, Marti Friedlander has lived a life marked by adventure, travel, and its fair share of challenges.

The State in New Zealand, 1840-198: Socialism without Doctrines?

Michael Bassett

The State in New Zealand, 1840-198: Socialism without Doctrines? by Michael BassettIn this innovative study Michael Bassett, historian and former politician, explores how and why the state became such an active and interventionist player in New Zealand life, developing, subsidising and regulating the economy and protecting citizens from the cradle to the grave. He looks in detail at the many schemes in which a paternalistic government became involved, especially the extensive social programmes. These were taken for granted by the people but from the 1960s were increasingly difficult to sustain economically. By 1984, he concludes, this process of intervention had to be slowed....

Get off the Grass: Kickstarting New Zealand's Innovation Economy

Shaun Hendy & Paul Callaghan

Get off the Grass: Kickstarting New Zealand's Innovation Economy by Shaun Hendy & Paul Callaghan

In a brilliant intellectual adventure that ranges from David Ricardo and Adam Smith to economic geography and the science of complex networks, Shaun Hendy and Paul Callaghan explore how New Zealanders can learn to live off knowledge rather than nature. The key to increasing New Zealand's prosperity, they argue, is innovation in high-tech niches. To catch up with the countries that lure young Kiwis away, New Zealand needs to start innovating like a city of four million people; it needs to start taking science seriously; it needs to start seeing its people as people of learning, not just of the...
