            The Christchurch massacre of 2019 raised questions about what it means to belong to an ethnic and/ or religious minority in a country that, despite the mythology of benign race relations, has experienced a long history of underlying prejudice and racism. Despite being the secon...d largest ethnic group within the 'Asian' population of Aotearoa New Zealand, little has been written about the experiences of Indian migrants, either historically or today. Most writing has focused on celebration and integration, but Invisible speaks of survival and the real impacts racism has on the lives of Indian New Zealanders. It uncovers a story of exclusion that has rendered Kiwi-Indians invisible in the historical narratives of the nation.

            This illustrated history tells the amazing story of Pacific people and their relationships with, and contributions to, New Zealand society. In a great feat of exploration and migration, Pacific Islanders became the first people to step foot on these shores some 800 years ago. Tod...ay, New Zealand is home to the largest population of Pacific Islanders anywhere in the world, and New Zealand has a long history with the other islands of the Pacific, their people and their cultures. Yet how many New Zealanders consider themselves Pacific Islanders, despite this shared geography and past? How many know the amazing history of New Zealands Pacific people? Tangata o le Moana is the first book to present that history. It tells the stories of Pacific people past and present, in all areas of life on the street, on the sports field, in the recording studio, on the political stage, and beyond. There are highs, and there are lows from the dawn raids of the 1970s to Tana Umaga becoming first Samoan captain of the All Blacks. And alongside tales of legendary figures like Kupe and historical figures like the navigator priest Tupaia, there are previously untold stories, too like the first-person accounts of Pacific people who visited and settled here in the 1800s, at a time when New Zealands leaders dreamed of creating their own empire in the Pacific, or the Pacific Islands soldiers who fought and died for New Zealand in the two world wars. Across fifteen chapters written by leading historians and writers, every aspect of New Zealands relationship with Pacific people is covered from migration to tourism, economics to politics, sport to the arts. Drawing on diverse sources and handsomely illustrated with specially commissioned maps, historical and contemporary photos, archival documents and images of evocative museum objects, Tangata o le Moana presents a very colourful, deeply human record of the story of New Zealand as a Pacific place

            The Burning: The Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921

            Includes an All-New Afterword. The definitive account of America's most horrific racial massacre, told in a compelling and unflinching narrative. The Burning is essential reading as America finally comes to terms with its racial past. When first published in 2001, society apparen...tly wasn't ready for such an unstinting narrative. After it was published, The Burning, like its subject matter, remained unknown to most in America. That has changed dramatically. I began to suspect that a crucial piece remained missing from America's long attempts at racial reconciliation, Madigan wrote in 2001 in the author's note to The Burning. Too many in this country remained as ignorant as I was. Too many were just as oblivious to some of the darkest moments in our history, a legacy of which Tulsa is both a tragic example and a shameful metaphor. How can we heal when we don't know what we're healing from? Now, 100 years after the massacre, Madigan brings new resonance to these questions in the reissue of this definitive work of American history. Featuring a brand new afterword, The Burning skillfully places the Tulsa Massacre in a broader historical context. Rather than an exception, the massacre was completely consistent with that time in the United States, an era of Jim Crow, widespread lynching, and racism endorsed and promulgated at the highest levels of society. Such were the foundations of the systemic racism at the root of our problems today. On the morning of June 1, 1921, a white mob numbering in the thousands marched across the railroad tracks dividing black from white in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and obliterated a black community then celebrated as one of America's most prosperous. 34 square blocks of Tulsa's Greenwood community, known then as the Negro Wall Street of America, were reduced to smoldering rubble. And now, 100 years later, the death toll of what is known as the Tulsa Race Massacre is more difficult to pinpoint. Conservative estimates put the number of dead at about 10
