              "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.

              A narrative history of the Burgess Gang and their greatest crime. In the winter of 1866 New Zealand's most notorious bushranger, Richard Burgess, knelt at a small desk in his Nelson prison cell, took up his quill pen and began to write. His life, he knew, was beyond salvation but... words were the last weapon at his disposal to consign his mortal enemy, gang turncoat Joseph Sullivan, to the gallows. The blood-soaked confession that followed was described by Mark Twain as 'without its peer in the literature of murder'. Five bodies had been recovered from Maungatapu Mountain in the upper South Island, and another from the West Coast. But who had done the killing, and how many other victims were there? What had brought the ruthless Burgess Gang to this point? Drawing on a wealth of primary sources, including little-known original accounts by Sullivan, 'Murder on the Maungatapu' tells the fascinating full story of a dark episode in this country's history. This is a superbly written tale of blood and gold, of betrayal and vengeance, and it draws some startling conclusions about New Zealand's crime of the nineteenth century.

              It was interesting what people in the checkout line were buying: it was all comfort food. The man in front of me had eggs, bacon, cigarettes, beer. And here we were buying pink buns. No one was buying sensible emergency rations like baked beans..." "It was just the most wonderful... feeling. A sense of hope, like a weed growing out of a crack. Just sitting in the sun listening to beautiful classical music amidst all the devastation..." Everyone in Christchurch has their own story of the quakes. There are heroic and brave stories related to the events themselves, and also longer narratives of endurance over 18 months of aftershocks. No one will ever forget this year. In The Quake Year acclaimed author Fiona Farrell interviews people trying to live ordinary lives in extraordinary times. Their stories are moving, poignant, revealing and healing. This unique book takes the reader beyond the physical damage straight into the hearts of survivors, in stories that will touch a chord with every reader. Fiona's text is enhanced by beautiful photographs by acclaimed photographer Juliet Nicholas.

              In this book Professor Rice looks at the chimneys that have adorned the citys skyline since 1850 from the domestic to the commercial and the industrial. It also considers the history of the European chimney from its first appearance in the medieval period to its modern day equiva...lent. Having collected material for a chimney book for some years, Professor Rice, who is Professor of History at the University of Canterbury, was spurred into action by the September 2010 Christchurch earthquake which destroyed much of the citys chimney heritage. The February 2011 earthquake destroyed even more. While noting the quirky and the unusual, All Fall Down also documents the typical styles of successive stylistic periods, from late Victorian to Art Deco, and the latest versions on new houses. It also looks at a style of chimney pot, the Homebush pot, produced in Glentunnel between 1880 and 1890 and distinctive to the Canterbury region. Professor Rice said his fascination with chimneys and chimney pots stemmed from his childhood in the smoggy Christchurch of the 1950s, and was furthered by his interest in medieval and Tudor buildings. Later on, his research on eighteenth-century England, where chimneys were status symbols and a display of wealth, and his travels around Europe, added to this interest

              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.
