              No Maori Allowed: New Zealand's Forgotten History of Racial Segregation (Paperback)

              This is the story of New Zealand's most racist town. From 1952 to 1964, Pukekohe housed the only segregated Maori school in the history of the country. Tragically, hundreds of Maori infants and children died as a result of their segregation in slums where they were forced to live... on the edge of town. No Maori Allowed looks at what happened at Pukekohe and the extent of racial intolerance across the country. Using records from the National Archives and firsthand interviews, chapters cover the extent of racial intolerance across the country in housing and employment during the segregation period from 1925 to the early 1960s. Did you know that on 'K Road' in Auckland, shops had signs reading 'No Credit for Maori,' in Hamilton stores refused to let them try on pants, hospitals had segregated maternity wards and gave them less expensive cutlery, while many stores and major banks had official policies of not hiring 'coloureds'. When a New Zealand University Press insisted that I modify the text as it was too pro- Maori, I decided to publish it myself, because the true history of Maori cannot be censored.

              The Wine O'clock Myth takes an in-depth look at the drinking habits of New Zealand women. It's written through the lens of Lotta Dann's own story and her work in the field of recovery and addiction today. It contains evidence-based research gleaned from primary sources, and numer...ous interviews with experts in many fields. As well as examining the normalising of alcohol in New Zealand, The Wine O'clock Myth explores the glorification that goes on with regards to this drug. It discusses when and how the alcohol industry began specifically targeting women, unpicking the tactics they employ to target female customers. It looks at the rise of the now-ubiquitous 'Wine Mum' culture on social media and the role the alcohol industry and media companies play in perpetuating this. It also investigates the impact that regular, heavy drinking has on women, both physically and emotionally. It looks at the emotional impacts - the numbing, dulling and disconnection that can occur - and the physical impacts: the problems alcohol can cause in the body and the increased risk of diseases. But while the book offers a big-picture analysis, it also provides an intimate view of the issue by featuring the voices of Kiwi women sharing their personal stories, revealing the pervasive and negative impact alcohol can have on a woman's life. These personal reflections contain tales of emotional disconnection, diminished power, confused thinking and damaged relationships. There are also uplifting stories of the remarkable transformations that can occur when alcohol is removed.

              In 1790, five convicts escaped Sydney by boat and were swept ashore near present-day Newcastle. They were taken in by the Worimi people, given Aboriginal names and started families. Thus began a long and at times dramatic series of encounters between Aboriginals and convicts in t...he second settlement in Australia. The fertile valley of the Hunter River was the first area outside of Sydney explored by the British, and it became one of the largest penal settlements. Yet today manicured lawns and prosperous vineyards hide the struggles, violence and toil of the thousands of convicts who laid its foundations. The Convict Valley uncovers this rich colonial past, as well as the story of the original Aboriginal landholders. While there were friendships and alliances in the early years, in the mad scramble for land in the 1820s as the Valley was opened to free settlers, tensions increased and bloodshed ensued. With fascinating stories about convicts, white settlers and the Aboriginal inhabitants that have long been forgotten, The Convict Valley is a new Australian history classic. 'Mark Dunn's Convict Valley is a finely detailed and meticulously researched study of the Hunter Valley. Interweaving its Aboriginal, convict and mining past, Dunn reveals the missing and misunderstood complexities of these histories as a gifted storyteller.' - Professor John Maynard, The University of Newcastle

              The Silent Patient by way of Stephen King: Parker, a young, overconfident psychiatrist new to his job at a mental asylum, miscalculates catastrophically when he undertakes curing a mysterious and profoundly dangerous patient. In a series of online posts, Parker H., a young psychi...atrist, chronicles the harrowing account of his time working at a dreary mental hospital in New England. Through this internet message board, Parker hopes to communicate with the world his effort to cure one bewildering patient. We learn, as Parker did on his first day at the hospital, of the facility's most difficult, profoundly dangerous case-a forty-year-old man who was originally admitted to the hospital at age six. This patient has no known diagnosis. His symptoms seem to evolve over time. Every person who has attempted to treat him has been driven to madness or suicide. Desperate and fearful, the hospital's directors keep him strictly confined and allow minimal contact with staff for their own safety, convinced that releasing him would unleash catastrophe on the outside world. Parker, brilliant and overconfident, takes it upon himself to discover what ails this mystery patient and finally cure him. But from his first encounter with the mystery patient, things spiral out of control, and, facing a possibility beyond his wildest imaginings, Parker is forced to question everything he thought he knew. Fans of Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes and Paul Tremblay's The Cabin at the End of the World will be riveted by Jasper DeWitt's astonishing debut. PRAISE FOR THE PATIENT: A stunning debut! DeWitt's The Patient is a thrilling, compulsive page-turner that will appeal to fans of F. Paul Wilson, Sarah Pinborough, and Alex Michaelides. Brian Keene, bestselling author and World Horror Grandmaster Award winner 'Insidious evil' is such an overused term, but there is no other way to describe what prowls the hallways of this riveting novella. A compulsive read I devoured in one day. And the ending .

              What does a full-blown Fire Age look like? We are about to find out, and Australia will feel the looking-glass transition from an ice world to a fire world more fully and suddenly than elsewhere. Over vast expanses of time, fire and humanity have interacted to expand the domain o...f each, transforming the earth and what it means to be human. In this concise yet wide-ranging book, Stephen J. Pyne - named by Science magazine as 'the world's leading authority on the history of fire' - explores the surprising dynamics of fire before humans, fire and human origins, aboriginal economies of hunting and foraging, agricultural and pastoral uses of fire, fire ceremonies, fire as an idea and a technology and industrial fire. Speaking directly to humanity's ancient alliance with fire - at once a mutual-assistance pact and a Faustian bargain - this revised and expanded second edition looks to the future of fire as a constant, defining presence on earth in which megafires have become routine, large swathes of landscape suffer a fire famine and unremitting industrial combustion promises to create the fire-informed equivalent of an ice age - an epoch that Pynes calls the Pyrocene. In this Australian edition, Pyne discusses in a new preface how the Aboriginal firestick has become an emblem of cultural recovery, and how it may now find itself as a lever of resilience amid the Pyrocene.

              WINNER of the Miles Franklin Literary Award 2017 WINNER of the Dorothy Hewett Award for an Unpublished Manuscript WINNER of the Colin Roderick Award 2017 SHORTLISTED for the Prime Minister's Award for Fiction Professor Frederick Lothian, retired engineer, world expert on concrete... and connoisseur of modernist design, has quarantined himself from life by moving to a retirement village. His wife, Martha, is dead and his two adult children are lost to him in their own ways. Surrounded and obstructed by the debris of his life - objects he has collected over many years and tells himself he is keeping for his daughter - he is determined to be miserable, but is tired of his existence and of the life he has chosen. When a series of unfortunate incidents forces him and his sharp-eyed neighbour, Jan, together, Frederick Lothian has the chance to realise the damage done by the accumulation of a lifetime's secrets and lies, and to comprehend his own shortcomings. Can he finally build something meaningful for the ones he loves? 'In Extinctions, a compassionate and unapologetically intelligent novel, Josephine Wilson explores ageing, adoption, grief and remorse, empathy and self-centredness...The novel is also a meditation on survival: on what people carry, on how they cope, and on why they might, after so much putting their head in the sand, come to the decision to engage, and even change. ' - The 2017 Miles Franklin Literary Award Judges Comments 'Whip smart, full of unexpected moves and a wonderful cast of characters...a powerful and memorable read.' - Karen Joy Fowler 'Wilson is never at a loss for words. She wields the English language sometimes like a surgical instrument, sometimes like a weapon, but always with complete mastery of allusion and resonance.' - Gillian Dooley, Australian Book Review 'Josephine Wilson's paragraphs and sentences have a rounded shape, in contrast to the currently fashionable way of writing, which tends to jagged, broken sentences.
