              Reserve Bank Governor Alan Bollard's bestselling Crisis was a first-hand account of the global financial meltdown. Two years on, this new edition of Crisis brings the story up to date. Crisis takes readers from the overheated markets of 2007, through the collapse of investment ba...nks and stressful times for numerous economies in 2008/9, and on to a fragile recovery around the world since 2010. In two new chapters for this edition, Bollard reveals how New Zealand is grappling with the impact of the US debt ceiling crisis, the current sovereign debt crises in Europe and the devastating effects of the Christchurch earthquakes. Bad news on the Reuters screen, emergency meetings and urgent decisions, making sure Christchurch has enough cash and ATMs: Crisis captures the drama of events as politicians, bankers and government officials struggle to deal with the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Dr Alan Bollard has been governor of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand since 2002. Author of a number of books, he has previously been Secretary to the Treasury, Chair of the Commerce Commission and Director of the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research. Sarah Gaitanos is an independent writer and oral historian.

              It is 1960s Singapore and a time of turbulence: political argument in Malaya, invasion threats from Indonesia, and the Cold War is spreading through Southeast Asia. Sarah is a clever young officer sent to monitor the radio waves and provide military intelligence for the British. ...Pearl is the young Chinese woman teaching tai chi classes. Caught between them is Harry, the planters son turned investigative journalist. But Pearl is not all she seems, Sarah is unearthing a cesspool of dealings, and Harry hardly knows which way to turn to avoid his family ghosts. From the bustling young metropolis of Singapore to the humid muddy jungle of Borneo, a web of political intrigue, conflicting emotions, and taut mystery await.
