              Local Lives contests dominant trends in migration theory, demonstrating that many migrant identities have not become entirely diasporic or cosmopolitan, but remain equally focused on emplaced belonging and the anxieties of being uprooted. By addressing the question of how migrant...s legally and symbolically lay claim to owning and belonging to place, it refocuses our attention on the micro-politics and everyday rituals of place-making, that are central to the construction of migrant identities. Exploring immigrants' interactions with house spaces, property rights, environmental conservation, landscape, historical knowledge of place, ideas of 'local community' and place-specific 'traditions', this volume shows how, in a fluid world of movement, locality remains a deeply contested and symbolically rich place to situate identity and to constitute the self. Thematically organised and presenting a diverse range of empirical studies dealing with migrant communities in Hawaii, Britain, France, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, the Dominican Republic and Albania, Local Lives reorients research in migration and transnational studies around locality. As such, it will appeal to social scientists working on questions relating to landscape, identity and belonging; race and ethnicity; and migration and transnationalism.

              Reconciliation, Representation and Indigeneity: 'biculturalism' in Aotearoa New Zealand
               

              Reconciliation, Representation and Indigeneity: 'biculturalism' in Aotearoa New Zealand (Hardback)

              Edited by Adds, Peter; Bonisch-brednich, Brigitte; Hill, Richard S.; Whimp, Graeme

              "This book offers an up-to-date analysis of the reconciliation processes between Maori and the Crown by leading and emerging scholars in the field. It is the first attempt to grasp the link between contemporary politics, the notion of activist research, and historical and anthrop...ological analysis. The argument this collection is based on is that reconciliation processes are manifested in much more than government policies, legal decisions and law-making."--Page 4 of cover.
