              Strong Words is a striking collection of essays that show what Virginia Woolf once described as the art that can at once `sting us wide awake' and yet also `fix us in a trance which is not sleep but rather an intensification of life'. It celebrates an extraordinary year in New Ze...aland writing.

              The Paper Nautilus is about loss - the forms it takes, how we go on living in the face of it, and the mysterious ways that new life and new beginnings are born of brokenness. The angelically beautiful but fragile paper nautilus provides a vivid image of this interplay of death an...d rebirth.

              mages of pristine forests, mountain ranges, untameable rivers and empty expanses of coastline are the key attraction in how we promote Aotearoa New Zealand internationally: 100% Pure no less. Such wildness is at this nations psychological and physical core. This book searches for... an understanding of the wild, of what makes wilderness such an important part of our psyche. What could wilderness in Aotearoa New Zealand become, and, consequently, what might we its people also become?

              Making a New Land presents an interdisciplinary perspective on one of the most rapid and extensive transformations in human history: that which followed Maori and then European colonisation of New Zealand's temperate islands. This is a new edition of Environmental Histories of Ne...w Zealand, first published in 2002, brimming with new content and fresh insights into the causes and nature of this transformation, and the new landscapes and places that it produced. Unusually among environmental histories, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of change, focusing on international as well as local contexts. Its 19 chapters are organised in five broadly chronological parts: Encounters, Colonising, Wild Places, Modernising, and Contemporary Perspectives. These are framed by an editorial introduction and a reflective epilogue. The book is well illustrated with photographs, maps, cartoons and other graphics.
