            It was interesting what people in the checkout line were buying: it was all comfort food. The man in front of me had eggs, bacon, cigarettes, beer. And here we were buying pink buns. No one was buying sensible emergency rations like baked beans..." "It was just the most wonderful... feeling. A sense of hope, like a weed growing out of a crack. Just sitting in the sun listening to beautiful classical music amidst all the devastation..." Everyone in Christchurch has their own story of the quakes. There are heroic and brave stories related to the events themselves, and also longer narratives of endurance over 18 months of aftershocks. No one will ever forget this year. In The Quake Year acclaimed author Fiona Farrell interviews people trying to live ordinary lives in extraordinary times. Their stories are moving, poignant, revealing and healing. This unique book takes the reader beyond the physical damage straight into the hearts of survivors, in stories that will touch a chord with every reader. Fiona's text is enhanced by beautiful photographs by acclaimed photographer Juliet Nicholas.

            The way we plan and build cities in Australia needs to change.Australia?s population is growing- between 2017 and 2046 it is projected to increase by 11.8 million, the equivalent of adding a city the size of Canberra each year for thirty years. Most of this growth will occur in t...he major cities, and already its effects are being felt- inner-city property prices are skyrocketing and the more affordable middle and outer suburbs lack essential services and infrastructure. The result is inequality- while wealthy inner-city dwellers enjoy access to government-subsidised services - public transport, cultural and sporting facilities - new home buyers, pushed further out, pay the lion?s share of the costs.So how can we create affordable housing for everyone and still get them to work in the morning? What does sustainable urban development look like?In this timely critique of our nation?s urban development and planning culture, Peter Seamer argues that vested interests often distort rational thinking on our cities. Looking to the future, he sets out cogent new strategies to resolve congestion, transport and expenditure problems, offering a blueprint for multi-centred Australian cities that are more localised, urban and equitable in nature.
