            The Canterbury Society of Arts (CSA) dominated the cultural life of Canterbury for nearly a century, playing a vital role in the development of New Zealand art, and this book presents both the society's history its contributions to the art world. Where art societies are often ass...umed to be conservative and reactionary institutions that failed to nurture the work of younger or more radical artists, this fascinating history reveals a different story. Formed in 1880 by European settlers, the CSA emerged from the start as a progressive art organization that had, over its lifetime, a total of 2259 working members. Directors and committees came and went, numerous obstacles and controversies were encountered, yet the CSA secured Christchurch's reputation as the artistic capital of New Zealand in the middle years of the 20th century.

            For centuries, M ori treasures, or taonga, have been some of the most prized, popular and precious objects held in museums around the world. From Te Maori to Te Papa and beyond, initiatives in Aotearoa New Zealand over the last 30 years have continued to provide new models for mu...seums around the world. With this has changed the role of museum staff who face new challenges in collecting, caring for and exhibiting the taonga of the M ori people in partnership with iwi (tribes) as well as developments involving the repatriation of human remains, the opening of cultural centres, and debates over identity, cultural property and heritage management. How do museum professionals deal with the indigenous objects in their care from day to day? How do they engage on a practical level with tribal communities? How do museums structure themselves to meet the needs of visitors as well as these communities? For the first time ever, Museums and Maori answers these questions. Using practical examples and the voices of the indigenous professionals and community representatives who have transformed museum practice in New Zealand over the past three decades, this all-new book provides an up-to-the-minute snapshot of New Zealand museums today across the whole range of museum work: mission and governance, management and staffing, collection care and management, exhibition development, education and public programmes, research and training. Ground-breaking initiatives - and their legacies - are revealed through interviews, policy documents, images and observations of professionals at work in museums ranging from the national museum Te Papa to the tiniest regional galleries. Museums and Maori addresses a major gap in the literature and a yawning gulf in professional training, making it indispensible as a reader for students, a handbook for professionals and a critical study relevant to the academic fields of museum and heritage studies, anthropology, art history, cultural studies, history,

At their historic sheep station, she finds an important and previously unknown colonial painting - and a family fraught with tension. There are arguments about the future of ...the property and its place in an ancient and highly significant indigenous landscape. When the family patriarch dies under mysterious circumstances and the painting is stolen, Alex decides to leave; then a toddler disappears and Alex's faithful dog Hogarth goes missing. With fears rising for the safety of both child and hound, Alex and her best friend John, who has been drawn into the mystery, join searchers scouring the countryside. But her attempts to unravel the McMillan family secrets have put Alex in danger, and she's not the only one. Will the killer claim another victim? Or will the landscape reveal its mysteries to Alex in time?
