              Reading Pakeha?: Fiction and Identity in Aotearoa New Zealand (Hardback)

              By Stachurski, Christina

              Aotearoa New Zealand, a tiny Pacific country, is of great interest to those engaged in postcolonial and literary studies throughout the world. In all former colonies, myths of national identity are vested with various interests. Shifts in collective Pakeha (or New Zealand-Europea...n) identity have been marked by the phenomenal popularity of three novels, each at a time of massive social change. Late-colonialism, anti-imperialism, and the collapse of the idea of a singular 'nation' can be traced through the reception of John Mulgan's Man Alone (1939), Keri Hulme's the bone people (1983), and Alan Duff's Once Were Warriors (1990). Yet close analysis of these three novels also reveals marginalization and silencing in claims to singular Pakeha identity and a linear development of settler acculturation. Such a dynamic resonates with that of other 'settler' cultures - the similarities and differences telling in comparison. Specifically, Reading Pakeha? Fiction and Identity in Aotearoa New Zealand explores how concepts of race and ethnicity intersect with those of gender, sex, and sexuality. This book also asks whether 'Pakeha' is still a meaningful term.

              Silanes and Other Coupling Agents, Volume 5

              Silanes and Other Coupling Agents, Volume 5 (Hardback)

              This volume chronicles the proceedings of the Fourth International Symposium on Silanes and Other Coupling Agents held under the aegis of MST Conferences, LLC in Orlando, FL, June 11-13, 2003. Silanes have been used for about half a century as coupling agents / adhesion promoters... to promote adhesion between dissimilar materials in a variety of situations, e.g., coating technology, adhesive bonding, and reinforced composites. However, recently silanes have found other applications, for example, as corrosion inhibitors. Lately there has been tremendous R&D activity in understanding the mechanisms by which silanes work as well as in devising new and improved silanes. This volume contains a total of 16 papers which were properly peer reviewed, revised and edited. The book is divided into two parts: 1. Silane Coupling Agents; and 2. Other Coupling Agents / Adhesion Promoters. Topics covered include: sterically hindered silanes; silane hydrolysis; silane oligomers; adsorption of silanes and their surface characterization; structure of bis-silane water-barrier films; silanes for improving adhesive bonding of aluminim, elastomer-to-metal adhesive bonds, and adhesion in silica-filler tire-tread compounds; electrodeposition of bis-silanes; silanes to provide corrosion resistance and as corrosion fatigue inhibitors; silane and other treatments for musical instrument strings; cyclic azasilanes as coupling agents for nanotechnology; hybrid polymers based on silanes for coating textile fabrics; plasma copolymers as adhesion promoters; organophosphate adsorption; and activation of wood fibres. This volume and its predecessors containing bountiful information should serve as a reference sourcefor the latest R&D activity in the arena of coupling agents. Anyone interested or involved in promoting adhesion between dissimilar materials for any application should find this volume of great use and value.
