              For the first time the true story of New Zealand's first successful aeroplane flights and the people behind them. Extensive research provides new understanding of historic events and corrects more than a hundred years of history with a startling account of what really happened in... 1911 and how Manurewa, the first aeroplane to fly, became 'lost'. Considered New Zealand's 'Wright brothers', Leo and Vivian Walsh were part of a small group of remarkable men and women pioneering motorised transport in the 1900's. The First is the compelling story of a generation including well-known Edwardians, George Henning, Reuben Dexter and the missing early years of international Art Deco designer, Keith Murray. The author does not neglect the careers of the Walsh sisters Veronica and Doreen with their connections to women aviators Jean Batten and Gladys Henning- Sandford, radio pioneer Aunt Daisy and Evelyn Purchas, likely the first New Zealand woman on active service to lose her life in World War One. The First addresses tobacco cultivation and manufacturing in the 1870s, the Victorian bicycle craze, the first motorcars, the Glenora Park flights and the upheaval of war then its aftermath when aeroplane flight would be experienced by ordinary New Zealanders. Terry Moyle's dedication to identifying and dating historic photographs and searching for never before seen images complement an authoritative text. As with his previous titles, Art Deco Airports and Art Deco New Zealand, masterly illustration and amazing maps by designers Contour Creative Studio instill the spirit of the age in this important history book.

              One of the most fascinating reads on the world polictics of today. Author Erbil (Bill) Gunasti, who worked for 15 years for eight Turkish prime ministers and is slated to work for the Trump administration as a presidential appointee, is sure to become a noted thought leader after... his book, Gamechanger. Gunasti suggests that Muslim migration will soon change Western civilization as we know it - unless Donald Trump and Recep Tayyip Erdogan work together. Imagine, the US, as the sole Christian and Western power, down to the third slot from the top, is being squeezed out by China and India, the number one and two economies in the world, and challenged by two upcoming Muslim countries, Indonesia and Turkey, from the other end. All the while, Germany, the UK, and France are struggling to hold on to the bottom of the barrel in the top 10 list, being of no help to the US during this onslaught. No, it is not a horror movie. It is about to become reality. And as early as within a decade! Unless Erdogan and Trump can eliminate soft bellies in the Middle East and Europe, setting the stage for the US to establish a balance of power against the rapidly rising East.
