              A riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making-from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man... searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency-a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil. Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation's highest office. Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond. We are privy to his thoughts as he assembles his cabinet, wrestles with a global financial crisis, takes the measure of Vladimir Putin, overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to secure passage of the Affordable Care Act, clashes with generals about U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, tackles Wall Street reform, responds to the devastating Deepwater Horizon blowout, and authorizes Operation Neptune's Spear, which leads to the death of Osama bin Laden. A Promised Land is extraordinarily intimate and introspective-the story of one man's bet with history, the faith of a community organizer tested on the world stage. Obama is candid about the balancing act of running for office as a Black American, bearing the expectations of a generation buoyed by messages of

              AUNTIES is a collection of interviews, stories and essays from organisers, activists and the people behind the scenes who make political change in Aotearoa every day. The publication was crowdfunded in 2017 so it could be radically self-published as an unapologetic tribute an...d snapshot of the women, trans, non-binary and intersex leaders who make movements happen despite all odds. Three years later, AUNTIES brings together a punchy, grounding and nourishing how-to-guide for people fighting for racial, economic and social justice in today's world. Co-edited by community and union organisers, Nadia Abu-Shanab, Ella Grace McPherson-Newton and Kassie Hartendorp, AUNTIES shares reflections, art and poetry from the aunties, leaders and role models they have been in relationship with through their political work. AUNTIES shows insight into the unique traditions of political organising in Te Moana Nui a Kiwa, while paying tribute to the global activists who continue to influence our region. From the home to the workplace, the whenua to the marae, the garage to the university and the kitchen to the community, AUNTIES takes us everywhere political change happens.

              From out of the housing crisis towards the end of the Second World War, Auckland City's mayor John Allum came up with the idea of turning former military camps into transit housing, filling the gap between inadequate slum areas and better homes provided by the government schemes,... amongst others. The idea took hold nationwide for a time, until the crisis eventually eased. Today, hardly anything remains. A Place to Stay awhile details the stories and the lives at Auckland's five transit housing camps, at Mt Victoria in Devonport, Western Springs, Victoria Park, the Auckland Domain, and Camp Bunn near Panmure, as well as Transit Camps in other areas of New Zealand..
