              Dividing a Nation: the Return to Tikanga (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Pre-1840 the rules of Tikanga could be brutal in respect of inter-tribal wars and their consequences - especially for the ordinary natives who often lived in fear. Happily everyday life for Maoris has been transformed. The practice of tikanga has changed, taking on many aspects o...f Western culture. There are many and varied descriptions of just what tikanga is now. This uncertain tikanga is being re-introduced into our way of life and written into law, setting rules to determine the behaviour not just of part-Maoris but of all New Zealanders. Given these increasing requirements, it is important that the rules of tikanga be clear. What is this tikanga that we must increasingly follow? This book is a scan across the history of the old ways, a description of the changes brought about largely by Maori themselves in their great cultural transformation, and reports of recent disruptive actions where special race-based rights are claimed and supported by calls for the primacy of tikanga. To avoid trouble in the future it is important that this vital issue be known, discussed and debated so that New Zealanders can meet the challenges facing us and seek a better way to move forward as "one people". This book is an informative step in that direction.

              Unauthorized Power Institutional racism, love of wealth, ignorance of others, and lack of understanding, led to the shocking actions at Parihaka. These appalling actions reflected events carried out in the name of powerful governments throughout the world. They were all-powerful.... They knew what was best for all. Parihaka is used as an example of the damage caused through such narrow-minded colonial thinking and how such thoughts led on to problems in today's world. We have not learnt. And what of Maori? How are they faring as a result? The statistics are no prize for the New Zealand Government, but for some reason Maori are blamed for having the highest imprisonment rates, lowest education and housing figures, and poorest health data. And yet, before the New Zealand wars, the ancestors of these people were the most educated, and had the most successful farming and business enterprises in Aotearoa-New Zealand. What happened?

              Three Centuries: The Chronicle of a Dutch Family (Hardback)

              Three Centuries is the captivating and once-in-a-while intense story about eight members of the van Hall family, who, from father to son, narrate their experiences. It starts in 1660 around Arnhem, then Leiden and Vianen, and finally in Amsterdam, where Maurits Cornelis (17681858...), the patriarch of the Amsterdam van Halls, settled in 1787. It becomes clear to the reader why Maurits van Hall, although initially a Patriot in the battle against Napoleon, started to consider Orange as the symbol of our national unity and liberation. This does not apply to his oldest brother, Adriaan Teyler van Hall, because he with his friend Engel van de Stadt became pirates. He stayed anti-English and anti-Orange. A persistent legend is settled that Jan Dereck baron van Capelle was murdered by a poison letter sent to him by a high-placed political opponent. Years later, Government-Minister Floris van Hall was also accused of getting rid of opponents through this method, but he was never charged. A separate chapter is devoted to the Rveil and the Separatists. Jointly with Anne Maurits Cornelis (18181844), we first meet Da Costa, Koenen, Capadose and de Clercq, and later, Reverend Scholte and Reverend Budding. The shameful persecution of the Separatists was forcefully denounced by Anne Maurits. Later, in the classic liberal period, the reader is taken along to grand parties in the curve of the Herengracht. Dinners with twelve courses! This a lovely period in the history of the family. Only a few of them realized at that time that the origins of the liberal period contained the seeds of its dissolution and that change was coming soon. This brings us to World War II and Walraven van Hall (19061945), the oiler and ultimately the minister-president of the Dutch Resistance. There is also a chapter devoted to the city of Hattem, where in the beginning of the century, the various revolutions had not yet arrived and life had the imprint of the Middle Ages. As is often the case, the little perso
