              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.

              From the original writings of The Grimm Brothers, Hans Christian Andersen, Perrault and other master storytellers, this reenvisioned collection of 18 of our favourite fairy tales challenges outdated gender stereotypes and creates diverse new tales for every girl and boy - regardl...ess of gender, skin colour or sexual orientation. In Diamonds and Toads, a brave princess fights her way through a forest of thorns to place a kiss on the sleeping Briar Rose. The Frog Prince's curse is ultimately undone by another prince who learns not to judge by outward appearances. And a young woman proves she is more than capable of using her wits to save her betrothed as the gender roles are reversed in Jorinda and Joringel. Richly illustrated by some of New Zealand's best loved illustrators and artists, this treasury is sure to become a favourite for a new generation of readers.

              Martinborough was a latecomer to Wairarapa and never really got going after it missed out on a much anticipated railway link. Off the beaten track, it was an ordinary and declining rural service town until being reinvented, since the 1980s, into a wine mecca and popular tourist d...estination in its own right. This mainly photographic book presents the look and feel of the town since early days.

              ...there was an unwavering belief in the goodness of milk and orange juice. Soda energized and pleased palates without suspicion. THEN CAME A RECKONING... BETTER FOR YOU examines the rise of a global healthy drinks market and presents case histories of entrepreneurs who dared to ...create "better for you" beverages... enduring American brands and burgeoning New Zealand lifestyle drinks, Phoenix Organic, Karma Cola, Chia Sisters, Aotea Native Tonics & King of Kiwi. How did Phoenix Organic, an iconic Kiwi brand, come to be foreign-owned? How is Karma Cola going head-to-head with Big Soda? How does leadership from Chia Sisters founders dismantle Tall Poppy culture? Why did a successful Maori-led drink brand choose to forgo export? Included in BETTER FOR YOU is a "behind the scenes" account of Kiwi, Glenn Elliott, who travels to the USA to "give it a go" with his artisanal kiwifruit drink brand. Much more than a business book, BETTER FOR YOU, shows connections between products and consumers, Americans and Kiwis, and posits how commerce can relate to leading authentic, healthy, and responsible lives.

              Wallace Bain retired in early 2020 after 28 distinguished years as a Coroner, most recently in Rotorua. During these years Mr Bain developed a national reputation for his sensitivity and compassion in dealing with difficult cases such as those of Nia Glassie and Moko Rangitoherir...i. That a child is killed in New Zealand as a result of abuse every five weeks he finds "unacceptable". He has also developed a reputation for being "a Coroner on the warpath" for his forthright demands from time to time that New Zealand's laws and regulations be changed to protect ordinary citizens. His work as a Coroner, says Wallace Bain, has been to speak for the dead to take care of the living. "After climbing the mountain I can finally enjoy the view."

              How do we make our older buildings earthquake-safe? This book marks the ten-year anniversary of the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes, which transformed this New Zealand city. It provides a first-hand insight into the typical types of damage that occurred during the sequence and show...cases earthquake-strengthening techniques that worked successfully and others that didn't. The collection of vivid photographs within this book comes from one of the most comprehensive databases on post-earthquake damage to masonry buildings in the world. It is hoped that the information within will inform professionals and students who will work on future retrofit projects, as well as reach the wider audience and increase public awareness of how a safer building environment can be achieved. The lessons learned from Christchurch will assist in preserving much-loved historic buildings and businesses, and they will help save precious lives. Author bio: Dr. Dmytro Dizhur is an award-winning chartered structural engineer who has dedicated his career to the mitigation of earthquake risks for large-scale national and global heritage buildings. Having advised on over 1000 projects for assessing and strengthening masonry buildings, Dizhur is a leader in devising creative and innovative testing methods for optimising strengthening solutions. He has assisted in redefining national and international guidelines for the assessment and earthquake retrofit design of masonry buildings.

              This is the story of a New Zealander living in Australia, who died in 2004, and whose body was left in the Glebe Morgue in Sydney for eight months unclaimed before being buried in a mass grave for five years. His next of kin was not informed of his death. Neither were New Zealand... representatives in Australia. The family suffered five years of torment while they lobbied to bring Paul Tait home. With the Australian Government ducking responsibility, Paul's sister Deborah Wylie went looking for someone in the New Zealand Government who'd be outraged by the disposal of a deceased New Zealander abroad in contravention of international law. But she found no one brave enough to take on the Australians except for one opposition member of parliament. Wylie wrote Duty of Care to tell the story of what her family endured, and to support her demand for an apology from the Australian Government and an acknowledgement from the New Zealand Government of the part they played in the debacle.
