              mages of pristine forests, mountain ranges, untameable rivers and empty expanses of coastline are the key attraction in how we promote Aotearoa New Zealand internationally: 100% Pure no less. Such wildness is at this nations psychological and physical core. This book searches for... an understanding of the wild, of what makes wilderness such an important part of our psyche. What could wilderness in Aotearoa New Zealand become, and, consequently, what might we its people also become? Contributors: Mick Abbott, Allison Ballance, Shaun Barnett, James Beattie, Mike Boyes, Tom Brooking, Stephen Espiner, Gerard Hindmarsh, Julian Kuzma, Robin McNeill, Cilla McQueen, Les Molloy, Harvey Perkins, Kerry Popplewell, Richard Reeve, Jacinta Ruru, Geoff Spearpoint, Brian Turner, Pip Wells, Jon West, Kerry Wray.

              Making our Place: Exploring land-use tensions in Aotearoa New Zealand (PDF ebook)

              Edited by Ruru, Jacinta; Stephenson, Janet; Abbott, Mick

              Fascination with the interplay of people and place inspired the editors of this book to bring together New Zealanders from different backgrounds and disciplines to explore conflict and change found among New Zealand's sacred, historic, rural, urban, and coastal landscapes. All co...ntributors engage with the underlying question: are there better ways to reconcile inherent tensions in the struggle with the land and with each other? Issues fundamental to identity are placed at center stage, including New Zealand indigenous rights and restitution, development and conservation, claiming and naming. The authors discuss issues ranging from the early-settler surveying lines to the Wanganui/Whanganui naming debate, the legal arguments over wahi tapu and Maori customary land to dairying in the Mackenzie Basin.
