              The Canterbury Society of Arts (CSA) dominated the cultural life of Canterbury for nearly a century, playing a vital role in the development of New Zealand art, and this book presents both the society's history its contributions to the art world. Where art societies are often ass...umed to be conservative and reactionary institutions that failed to nurture the work of younger or more radical artists, this fascinating history reveals a different story. Formed in 1880 by European settlers, the CSA emerged from the start as a progressive art organization that had, over its lifetime, a total of 2259 working members. Directors and committees came and went, numerous obstacles and controversies were encountered, yet the CSA secured Christchurch's reputation as the artistic capital of New Zealand in the middle years of the 20th century.

              "The bodies of 29 men are still entombed in the collapsed Pike River mine, more than a year after the tragic explosion and fire of 19 November 2010. What do their deaths mean for workplace health and safety? Is there a future for coalmining in this era of climate change? How has ...the Coast changed from the centre of radicalism it represented in the early 20th century? What is the way forward for a region that has felt betrayed by a succession of political decisions and developments over several decades? Playwright and film director Paul Maunder lives in Blackball, and was one of the first emergency respondents to Pike River, within minutes of the first explosion. He kept a diary, and has since been talking to locals and reflecting on the big issues at stake."--Back cover.
