              Get off the Grass: Kickstarting New Zealand's Innovation Economy (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              New Zealanders work harder and earn less than most other people in the developed world. Get Off the Grass is about how we can change that. In a brilliant intellectual adventure that takes us from David Ricardo and Adam Smith to economic geography and the science of complex networ...ks, Shaun Hendy and Paul Callaghan tell us to 'get off the grass!' and start exporting knowledge rather than nature. The key to increasing New Zealand's prosperity, they argue, is innovation in high-tech niches. If we are going catch up with the countries that lure our young people away, we will need to learn to innovate like a city of four million people; we will need to start taking science seriously; we will need to start seeing ourselves as people of learning, not just of the land - and we will need to put our money where our mouths are.

              'For some scientific questions, Antarctica is the best - and sometimes the only - place to look for answers. Visiting this frozen landscape is to gain a fresh perspective on our world, almost like going to another planet and looking back with renewed wonder on Earth.' In Science ...on Ice, award-winning science broadcaster and writer Veronika Meduna follows deep-south scientists who huddle in tents and dive under ice to study ancient mud, fat fish, migrating penguins and fossilised forests. Meduna presents us with a fascinating frozen land - Antarctica's ice cap holds three quarters of the planet's fresh water, its layers of ice and sediment record past climate conditions going back millions of years, and the oceans around it drive the global food chain and a giant conveyor belt of currents that transports heat around the globe. The creatures that call Antarctica home have evolved to survive in conditions hostile to life, and the continent's permanently ice-covered lakes may even hold the secret to how life began on Earth - and what it might look like elsewhere. And though it is the only continent without permanent human habitation, Antartica may yet hold the key to our survival. In this lavishly illustrated book Meduna introduces us to an exhilarating landscape, to fascinating discoveries and to the people making them - those scientists tackling fundamental questions about life and the world around us from the frozen continent.

              Briefcase, the first book of poems by District Court Judge John Adams, is a collection presented as a briefcase of lost documents and poems, allowing the author to play with a wide range of stylistic ideas around a central narrative theme, producing a melange of poems - in tradit...ional and experimental forms - nd other texts: affidavits, police reports, a Sudoku puzzle, court transcripts, a menu, wills, commentaries. A disordered novella in legal documents, brutal and amusing by turns, Briefcase unfolds a fascinating story and also superbly explores the role of language as a vessel for truth and an implement of justice.
