              Kiwi Air Power: A History of the RNZAF to the End of the Cold War
               

              Kiwi Air Power: A History of the RNZAF to the End of the Cold War (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)

              This is the story of New Zealand's military aviation from its modest beginnings in 1914 to the formation of the Royal New Zealand Air Force in 1936, the struggles of the Second World War and then the gyrations of the Cold War, wrapping up with the transition to the very different... post-Cold War world of the 1990s. It is a story of politics, of aircraft, and especially of people - of the everyday New Zealanders who fought the Second World War, who served with the RNZAF and the RAF, then and later; and who found strengths in themselves that, perhaps, they did not know they had.

              Ion, Helen, Orestes
               

              Ion, Helen, Orestes (Hardback)

              By Euripides; Translated by Arnson Svarlien, Diane; Introduction and notes by Wright, Matthew

              An acclaimed translator of Euripidean tragedy in its earlier and more familiar modes, Diane Arnson Svarlien now turns to three plays that showcase the special qualities of Euripides' late dramatic art. Like her earlier volumes, Ion, Helen, Orestes offers modern, accurate, accessi...ble, and stageworthy versions that preserve the metrical and musical form of the originals. Matthew Wright's Introduction and notes offer illuminating guidance to first-time readers of Euripides, while pointing up the appeal of this distinctive grouping of plays.
