              In 1998, just as South Island iwi Ngai Tahu was about to sign its Treaty of Waitangi settlement with the government - justice of sorts after seven generations of seeking redress - a former foundryman stepped into the pivotal role of kaiwhakahaere or chair of Te Runanga o Ngai T...ahu - the tribal council of Ngai Tahu. Mark Solomon stood at the head of his iwi at a critical moment and can be credited with the astute stewardship of the settlement that has today made Ngai Tahu a major player in the economy and given it long sought-after self determination. Bold, energetic and visionary, for 18 years Solomon forged a courageous and determined course. Now, in this direct memoir, Ta Mark reflects on his life, on the people who influenced him, on what it means to lead, and the future for both Ngai Tahu and Aotearoa New Zealand.

              A landmark book exploring New Zealand's second world war effort through over 800 photographs, many never before published and many live-action shots taken by those at the front. The images span North Africa, Europe and the Pacific, as well as action on the water and in the air -e...very battle and theatre in which New Zealanders fought. The text by one of New Zealand's leading military historians places the images in context. Chapters on prisoners of war, the home front and New Zealand's role in Japan after the end of hostilities in the Pacific round out this rich visual account of a conflict that dominated all aspects of New Zealand life for seven years.

              A Queer Existence is a major documentary project that uses photographic portraiture and oral history to record the life experiences of a group of 27 gay men born since the passing of the Homosexual Law Reform Act 1986. In New Zealand, discrimination in work was outlawed in 1993,... same-sex relationships were granted legal recognition in 2005, and marriage equality followed in 2013. As a result these men have life experiences very different to earlier generations of gay New Zealand men. Even so, gay men growing up today may continue to feel stigmatised, and for many coming out is still a major hurdle. Candid, powerful and affecting, the first-person narratives of A Queer Existence form a valuable and unique insight into how gay men continue to have to step out of the mainstream and face their own challenges as they forge their queer identities.

              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.

              A beautifully written short memoir whose main focus is unpacking a generations-old family story that was never told: that a farm in Taranaki on which the family's generations-long comfortable fortunes rested had been directly taken from the people of Parikaha and given to an ance...stor, a member of the Armed Constabulary. Intertwined with an examination of the author's relationship with his father and of his family's proud Catholicism, not only is this book a fine piece of writing but its key focus is also highly pertinent: How Pakeha New Zealanders should wrestle with, and own, their colonial pasts.

              A beautiful and important book about the remarkable collaboration between the modernist architect James Hackshaw (a member, for a time, of the famous Group Architects), the painter Colin McCahon and the then young sculptor Paul Dibble on 14 New Zealand buildings - from churches ...to school halls. Drawing on interviews with James Hackshaw before his death and on the McCahon archive, this book brings into the light a body of work and a collaboration that has been little known or examined, even by old McCahon hands. Richly illustrated with Hackshaw's plans, McCahon's drawings, letters and journal entries, and contemporary images of the surviving buildings and artworks, and with expert essays by Peter Simpson, Julia Gatley and Peter Shaw.
