            In this landmark educational publication researcher Harko Brown explains the tenets of Ira Takaro Theory. Brown contends that since the mid-1800's there has been a lack of attention to ira takaro (or the schema) of Tamariki Maori in our health, sports and educational institutes.... He says this has often negatively impacted Tamariki Maori via scornful social discourses, for example, by educators critical of Maori children's in-school behaviours, and in their overall academic and health statistics. He describes the natural expressions of ira takaro in Polynesian children as pronounced and packed with powerful potential which at present is much maligned and misunderstood in general by hauora providers, particularly by those in the fields of mental health and child psychology, by sports and recreational providers and in teaching professions.

            The story of the magnificent passenger and cargo ships that made New Zealand - and the colourful characters who manned them. Masters, engineers, deck officers, radio operators, seamen, cadets, shore staff and passengers talked to maritime historian Nick Tolerton for this brillian...tly illustrated book, full of salty tales of adventures at sea and ashore, war, storms, smuggling, eccentric characters, and fun and misadventures in port. Special features include harrowing excerpts from the previously unpublished diary of a passenger on New Zealand's worst immigrant ship on which 44 people died on the voyage to New Zealand and the recollections of New Zealand's last Cape Horner. This fascinating story of the golden age of seafaring is complemented by 400 photographs, most of them previously unpublished.
