            By Hutchinson, Garrie

            There are more than 30,000 New Zealand men and women, casualties of the two world wars, buried in cemeteries and named on memorials around the world. From Gallipoli to the Western Front, Palestine and the Middle East, Greece, Crete, Italy, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, New Zealan...ders have fought and died for their country. On a journey through time and place, Garrie Hutchinson takes you to these foreign battlefields, revealing their past and present. With GPS co-ordinates, written descriptions, maps and handy hints, and illustrated with exquisite photography throughout, Pilgrimage is a practical and up-to-date travel companion intertwined with a rich and elegantly told history. For those interested in visiting the battlefields and cemeteries in person, and others wanting to simply read about the story of New Zealanders in the two World Wars, Pilgrimage is a timely and touching reminder of the impact New Zealand soldiers made in the global arena of war, and their legacy that lasts today.

            This all-new guide to the whare whakairo, or decorated Maori meeting house, covers every aspect of these treasures--their history and evolution, structure and art forms, and symbolism and cultural significance. Generously illustrated with more than a hundred intriguing historical... and contemporary photographs, and containing dozens of diagrams and a helpful glossary, the book clearly illustrates the parts, and the arts, of the whare whakairo with reference to numerous historical and contemporary meeting houses from all over Aotearoa New Zealand and the world. In an accessible and engaging text, author Damian Skinner brings together existing scholarship on whare whakairo with his own reflections as an art historian and curator and the voices of many carvers, artists, architects, writers, experts, and iwi to give every reader new ways of seeing these taonga. Equal parts informative history, personal essay, and illustrated guidebook, The Maori Meeting House makes an important contribution to contemporary discussions about indigenous art history and taonga Maori.
