              No pioneer New Zealand family has lived and farmed their land longer than the Matthews of 'Waiorongomai'. Their story, shaped by the land itself, is an important part of the history of Aotearoa. The Matthews of Waiorongomai begins with the arrival of Charles and Elizabeth Matthew...s in 1842. They settled first in Wellington but, drawn by the pull of the land, moved to Wairarapa and purchased the first acres their descendants still farm today. Seven generation have lived on 'Waiorongomai'. It is the story of a family devoted to its farming, the development of one of the country's leading Romney sheep studs and the passing on of a love of the land from one generation to the next. It is also dedicated to all the men and families who have worked on 'Waiorongomai' over the last 150 years.

              Taranto to Trieste is an account of the author's fascinating journey to retrace the actual path of the 2nd New Zealand Division in Italy from its arrival in October 1943 until the end of the European war. Although a personal journey with personal reflections, the real story is ab...out the largely off-the-beaten track places which the troops passed through, what they saw and experienced along the way and, in some cases what they missed. To complement the Division's story, the historical context and military actions are explained with many maps as well as war-time photographs and colourful quotations from official military histories. As the author says, "There are many people of the post-war generation, and their children, with direct connections to the Italian campaign, who would like to know more about the small, mysterious places the Division passed through which appear in diaries, letters and on the back of photographs, but many of which do not appear on maps." The author's own photographs, descriptions of the places visited, the landscapes travelled and the roads followed will delight those wanting to follow in the footsteps of the 2nd Division in Italy.

              Bishops, Boozers, Brethren & Burkas: a Cartoon History of Religion in New Zealand
                

              Bishops, Boozers, Brethren & Burkas: a Cartoon History of Religion in New Zealand

              By Grimshaw, Mike

              The Book: Bishops, Boozers, Brethren &Burkhas uses cartoons from 1860s to the present day to discuss the way religion in New Zealand has been represented by our cartoonists. There is no general history of religion in New Zealand so this book is a unique contribution in providing ...not only a cartoon history of religion in this country but also a history via cartoons. From the 1860s, settlers viewed issues of religion and politics as problematic, but in the main, religion remained part of the fabric of society. However, religion was more of a concern for our cartoonists as New Zealand became an increasingly secular nation from the 1970s onwards. This not only reflects the generation of cartoonists whose work was published from the 1970s but also a shift in New Zealand society more generally. Overall, when religion was less of a contested identity and influence, cartoonists tended to leave religion - and the church alone. However, as the country became, very quickly, a secular society from the 1970s onwards, religion was a target of cartoonists. Religion and the religious were increasingly presented as representing religious and social attitudes and beliefs regarded as out of step with a modern society. The Author: Mike Grimshaw (PhD Otago) is Associate Professor in Sociology at University of Canterbury, New Zealand. A founding series editor for Radical Theologies and Philosophies (Palgrave Macmillan) and founding co-editor of Continental Thought & Theory:(http://ctt.canterbury.ac.nz/about-ctt/), he toils at the intersections of radical theology, continental thought and cultural and social theory. He also has a focus on New Zealand religious and intellectual history; recently publishing a book of interviews with the New Zealand radical religious thinker Sir Lloyd Geering(Geering Interviews, Polebridge, USA, 2018) and edited the letters of the noted New Zealand philosopher Arthur Prior (Arthur Prior, 'a young progressive', Canterbury University Press, 2018).

              This absorbing story is set in Greytown, in the Wairarapa, in the late 1860s.

A Better Place is a story about life in the township and on the area'...s small farms. A young wife from Devon, named Kate, arrives in Wellington with two children to meet their husband and father, who had sailed fom England two years previously and taken up land in Greytown. After a hazardous journey over the 'hill' she faces life in a rough cottage with earthen floor. She learns to milk cows, tend the garden and make a home for her family. Life is hard, but theirs are happy times too as settlers work together to ensure that they have, indeed, achieved 'a better place'.

              They first met when Helene was 18 years old. Together for nearly 40 years, this is the story of their relationship through Peter{u2019}s intense last four years involving 24/7 care, the impact of a horrible illness and a shameful and ad hoc health system. It aims to give a voice ...to isolated and exploited carers, especially those in private homes, and to expose fundamental issues about humanity and failed systems. It calls for and it calls a Royal Commission inquiry and a {u2018}bipartisan{u2019} Parliamentary response to produce viable solutions. The Author: Helene Ritchie was Wellington{u2019}s first female deputy mayor and is currently the capital{u2019}s longest serving city councillor. In those roles, she has successfully championed many social justice and environmental issues. She led the nuclear weapon free status of the Capital and the major Wellington civic centre project. A registered psychologist, she has, as an elected member of the Health Board, campaigned to significantly upgrade mental health hospital facilities. The greatest challenge, she faced, however, was as {u2018}carer{u2019} of her husband Peter who died in 2001 from a chronic and degenerative illness.
