            A fascinating insight into life in NZ at the turn of the 20th century and the evolving face of Aotearoa over time. The Edwardian era (1901-1910) marked a pivotal time in New Zealand's history. In the main centres, the country had emerged as a modern, urbane and self-assured nati...on. In the hinterland, however, the 'real' NZ - wild, exotic and 'Maori' - was still there, waiting to be discovered by the intrepid traveller. The book traces the routes taken by Edwardian visitors and provides a panorama of NZ in the first age of mass travel in the colony. Written for a general audience: those interested in NZ history and travel, and in the 'then and now' comparisons of Aotearoa New Zealand.

            This bestselling book, the triumphant fruit of careful research, wide reading and judicious assessment, is the unchallenged contemporary reference on the history of New Zealand. New Zealand was the last country in the world to be discovered and settled by humankind. It was also t...he first to introduce full democracy. Between those events, and in the century that followed, the movements and conflicts of human history have been played out more intensively and more rapidly in New Zealand than anywhere else on Earth. The Penguin History of New Zealand tells that story in all its colour and drama. The narrative that emerges is an inclusive one about men and women, Maori and Pakeha. It shows that British motives in colonising New Zealand were essentially humane; and that Maori, far from being passive victims of a 'fatal impact', coped heroically with colonisation and survived by selectively accepting and adapting what Western technology and culture had to offer.

            In the late 1970s, as the women's movement was fracturing, trade union women put forward a new agenda to bring feminists and women workers together. The onepage, 16-clause Working Women's Charter covered ... - the right to work - equal pay for work of equal value - an end to ...discrimination at work - better conditions, family leave, flexible work arrangements - free, quality childcare - reproductive rights... and more. Challenged by patriarchal union traditions, the women worked hard to win union support for their demands. Women will rise! Recalling the Working Women's Charter includes chapters by women who promoted the Charter, and others looking at what has been achieved since - and what remains to be done.
