            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.

            Her Way is a collection of authentic stories of New Zealand female business founders succeeding in business here and internationally, doing so on their own terms, and with heart. Includes women from Auckland, Wellington, Christchuch, Nelson, Hawkes Bay, Havelock North and more.... The personal stories these women share are real and inspiring - sharing the ups and downs, the trials and challenges, but also showcasing the successes achieved through a more 'inherently female' style of doing business. The traditionally classified 'feminine' personality traits such as caring, nurturing, kindness, sharing, helping others, collaborating, creating win-win deals, being mindful of our effect on others and on the environment, balancing family and business, and more, can be harnessed to create a better way of doing business. More and more businesses are enjoying significant commercial success through these values (both female and male led). Women featured include: - Lisa King, Eat my Lunch - Brianne West, Ethique - Anna Guenther, Pledge Me - Sue de Bievre, Beany - Jan Hellreigel, Musician, Songbroker, Airplane Music Services
