              "I've found over the many years that, when elections come along, I just sit still at my Beehive desk, buy a coffee, the people around me all change, and I just carry on." This is the story of Peter McCardle's journey through the last thirty years in New Zealand politics. Beginnin...g as a National MP, then with New Zealand First as a Cabinet Minister, later as a manager with ACT, completing an unplanned full circle return to the Beehive in the John Key Government. In this journey, Peter worked near to twelve political party leaders, including seven Prime Ministers, and played a leading role for NZ First in the 1996 MMP coalition talks. He created WINZ, subsequently served as senior political advisor to National's health ministers until 2017, which included Nationals response to the 2009/10 Swine flu pandemic. This health experience helped inform his insight into New Zealand's political and public response to Covid-19 and omicron. This book shares his insights and views on the Nationals party leadership changes over the years, including the current leadership. Party Hopper may surprise, please, differ from your views, or just entertain. Or all of these. Regardless, it will certainly leave you better informed.

              1921: Rugby, Race and Empire (Paperback)

              In the winter of 1921 a Springboks rugby team toured New Zealand for the first time, captivating the country. An all-white team of mostly Afrikaners, they came cloaked in a powerful mystique - blue-eyed, "youthful giants" from a fellow British colony. Twenty-three of the team had... served in the just-ended Great War. Wherever they went the Springboks were saluted as "sons of Empire." But the tour was rocked amid claims the Springboks resented having to play a Maori team, as the race issue that would bedevil New Zealand-South Africa rugby relations for seventy years reared its head. Two terrible events backdropped the Springboks visit: the 1914-18 war and the influenza epidemic. Together they'd taken nearly 30,000 New Zealanders' lives, and the effects of both calamities were still being felt. To compound the gloom, the economy nose-dived and many soldier-settlers were forced from their recently-acquired land. This book casts back one hundred years to bring together the story of an eagerly-anticipated rugby tour, and the troublesome memories of its time.

              The Mount Somers Tramway 1887 - 1943 Mid Canterbury New Zealand
                

              The Mount Somers Tramway 1887 - 1943 Mid Canterbury New Zealand (Paperback)

              By Maffey, I. D.; Maffey, R. D.

              The Mount Somers Tramway was conceived in a period of time when the motorcar was unknown, good roads were scarce and railways as a form of mechanical transport had the field largely to themselves. The pages within tell the story of its unspectacular rise and fall, a story closely... integrated for fifty years with the course of local history. The tramway reflects the initiative, enterprise and determination of its promoters to reduce the cost of conveying the mineral wealth from the Ashburton Gorge, an area of great geological interest - to the Mount Somers railway station for trans-shipment to Ashburton and beyond. As the remains of the Mount Somers Tramway are now largely effaced, it is hoped that this book will help to ensure that it's modest contribution to New Zealand railway history is not entirely forgotten; and it's significant role in local history given proper recognition. 200 pages, soft laminated cover. Over 180 colour and monochrome photographs and graphics.
