            Te Puea Herangi, whom Professor John Pocock identified as 'possibly the most influential woman in our political history', wanted an honest biography of her turbulent life. 'I want the truth told and nothing but the truth,' she told a Pakeha journalist. Michael King has written su...ch a book. He did so with the full support of Te Puea's tribe, Tainui, and of her surviving family and proteges. When this book first appeared in 1977 it was hailed as the best book written by or about a New Zealander. The Oxford History of New Zealand Literature said it was so far an advance on anything published previously that it was without precedent. It remains so.

            John Chambers was born in 1966 and brought up on Belfast's notorious Loyalist Glencairn estate. From an early age he witnessed violence, hatred and horror as Northern Ireland tore itself apart in civil strife. He thought he knew which side he was on, but although raised as a Loya...list, he was hiding a troubling secret - the fact that his disappeared mother was 'the enemy' - a Roman Catholic. In this book, John explores the dark heart of Northern Irish politics and sectarianism in the 1970s and 1980s, describing his childhood and teenage journey through ultra-Loyalism with searing honesty and native Belfast wit, until, at the age of twenty-nine, a miraculous turn of events reunited John with his mother after almost thirty years apart.
