              The Constitution of New Zealand: A Contextual Analysis
                

              The Constitution of New Zealand: A Contextual Analysis (Hardback)

              This book examines New Zealand's constitution, through the lens of constitutional realism. It looks at the practices, habits, conventions and norms of constitutional life. It focuses on the structures, processes and culture that govern the exercise of public power - a perspective... that is necessary to explore and account for a lived, rather than textual, constitution. New Zealand's constitution is unique. One of three remaining unwritten democratic constitutions in the world, it is characterised by a charming set of anachronistic contrasts. Unwritten , but much found in various written sources. Built on a network of Westminster constitutional conventions but generously tailored to local conditions. Proudly independent, yet perhaps a purer Westminster model than its British parent. Flexible and vulnerable, while oddly enduring. It looks to the centralised authority that comes with a strong executive, strict parliamentary sovereignty, and a unitary state. However, its populace insists on egalitarian values and representative democracy, with elections fiercely conducted nowadays under a system of proportional representation. The interests of indigenous Maori are protected largely through democratic majority rule. A reputation for upholding the rule of law, yet few institutional safeguards to ensure compliance.

              China's 'Great Firewall' has evolved into the most sophisticated system of online censorship in the world. As the Chinese internet grows and online businesses thrive, speech is controlled, dissent quashed, and attempts to organise outside the official Communist Party are quickly ...stamped out. Updated throughout and available in paperback for the first time, The Great Firewall of China draws on James Griffiths' unprecedented access to the Great Firewall and the politicians, tech leaders, dissidents and hackers whose lives revolve around it. New chapters cover the suppression of information about the first outbreak of COVID-19 in Wuhan, disinformation campaigns in response to the exposure of the persecution of Uyghur communities in Xinjiang and the crackdown against the Umbrella movement in Hong Kong.

              A Short History of the American Revolutionary War

              The American war against British imperial rule (1775-1783) was the world's first great popular revolution. Ideologically defined by the colonists' formal Declaration of Independence in 1776, the struggle has taken on something of a mythic character. From the Boston Tea Party to P...aul Revere's ride to raise the countryside of New England against the march of the Redcoats; and from the American travails of Bunker Hill (1775) to the final humiliation of the British at Yorktown (1781), the entire contest is now emblematic of American national identity. Stephen Conway shows that, beyond mythology, this was more than just a local conflict: rather a titanic struggle between France and Britain. The Thirteen Colonies were merely one frontline of an extended theatre of operations, with each superpower aiming to deliver the knockout blow. This bold new history recognizes the war as the Revolution but situates it on the wider, global canvas of European warfare.

              Smartphone Filmmaking: Theory and Practice

              Smartphone Filmmaking: Theory and Practice introduces readers to mobile, smartphone and pocket filmmaking, providing a source of inspiration for outlining creative practices and principles on how to produce your first film and distribute your project via social media. Filmmaker a...nd academic Max Schleser traces the development of mobile filmmaking over a decade from its early experimentation to films screened at international film festivals, such as Sundance or Berlin International Film Festival. Unlike the the how-to guides currently on the market, this book goes beyond technical elements and focuses on the stories that were told and how they were created. Schleser follows the well-cited and established framework of Bill Nichols' documentary theory, to introduce readers to different documentary modes, and more recently, the emerging area of creative practice and scholarship. Included are interviews with internationally renowned mobile and smartphone filmmakers, including Benoit Labourdette and Susy Botello, sharing their inspirational work, along with a dedicated resource section to illustrate how mobile, smartphone and pocket filmmaking can be used as a form of creative engagement for youth councils, community groups, public and educational institutions.
