              The brutal, premeditated murder of Honorah Parker in 1954 in a lonely park by her 16-year-old daughter Pauline and Pauline's 15-year-old friend Juliet Hulme made shock headlines around the world. International media flocked to New Zealand to follow the trial. Still today, the mur...der remains one of the most interesting criminal cases of all time, and a source of intense public fascination throughout the world - especially since one of the murderers was revealed to be the murder-mystery writer Anne Perry, whose books sell in the millions. Lawyer and true crime writer Peter Graham writes of the secrets and lies that permeated the girls' families, the bizarre lead-up to the murder, the girls' conviction and imprisonment, and their lives following their release. He also examines Parker's and Hulme'' actions in the light of modern psychology. In the 1950s the two girls were suspected of lesbianism, and judged and imprisoned as inherently evil. Would this happen today?

              The Devouring Dragon: How China's Rise Threatens The Natural World
               

              The Devouring Dragon: How China's Rise Threatens The Natural World (Trade Paperback / Paperback, New Zealand edition)

              By Simons, Craig

              "China is transforming our natural world at an alarming rate. It is the world's largest market for endangered wildlife, poached from India and Africa. It is the top importer of tropical timber, harvested illegally in Indonesia. In Brazil, farmers clear large swaths of the Amazon ...rainforest to meet Chinese demand for soybean oil and beef. In the U.S., toxic levels of mercury originating from Chinese power plants have polluted a third of American lakes and nearly a quarter of its rivers. Craig Simons' new book, "The devouring dragon", looks at how China, in its ascendance, has become the world's worst polluting superpower, creating a devastating environmental impact worldwide. Simons argues that China's most significant impacts over the twenty-first century will be not only on jobs, corporate profits and political alliances, but also on our natural world. "The devouring dragon" combines in-depth reporting with wide-ranging interviews, scientific research, and travel to some of the most beautiful places on earth. It amply demonstrates the urgency of the issue and also hope for the future. With the Obama administration placing China among its top three foreign policy priorities, Craig Simons argues eloquently for ways in which the United States and China can forge a new era of cooperation, support emerging environmental groups within China, and begin to ensure a sustainable future for the planet." --Publisher description.
