              "Focusing on New Zealand because it has the most comprehensive and accessible coroners' records, Weaver analyzes a staggering amount of information to determine the social and cultural factors that contribute to suicide rates. He examines the country's investigations into sudden ...deaths, places them within the context of major events and societal changes, and turns to witnesses' statements, suicide notes, and medical records to remark on prevention strategies. His extensive survey of twelve thousand cases also provides an insightful assessment of psychiatry and psychology in the last century"--Publisher information.

              Matiatia Bay is the gateway to Waiheke Island. Lying beside the island's best natural harbour, it has been the landing place for Maori waka, settler barges, tourist yachts and commuter ferries today. This beautiful heritage site is threatened by development - a marina is proposed..., and intensive parking. Establishing the significance of the past, historian Paul Monin tells Matiatia's story from early Maori occupation to the present day. Here in a fertile bay in the magnificent setting of the Hauraki Gulf is a microcosm of New Zealand's history. Charmingly written, MATIATIA: GATEWAY TO WAIHEKE includes a rich array of photographs and maps.

              Long Journey to the Border: A Life of John Mulgan
                

              Long Journey to the Border: A Life of John Mulgan (Paperback)

              John Mulgan was part of a gifted yet uneasy group of young New Zealanders who made their mark between the wars - men such as Ian Milner, James Bertram, Dan Davin and Geoffrey Cox. An Oxford graduate, he worked as a publisher at Oxford University Press before leaving for the front... in World War Two. Fascinated but sometimes troubled by his home country, Mulgan saw New Zealand as a place of challenge and austere demands, a land that produced men more practical than cultivated. In his famous novel, Man Alone, he depicted it as a tough, often heartless country, characterised by the solitary fgure who has come to symbolise the male New Zealand psyche. He wrote more warmly of the place and the people in the poignant memoir, Report on Experience, published after his death. Mulgan was a glamorous fgure: handsome, gifted and good at anything he attempted. His last years were spent fghting in the Allied cause in Egypt and Greece, where he distinguished himself. But there were darker threads, too, which culminated in his decision to take his own life in Cairo, just after the end of the war and aged only thirty three. In this penetrating biography, Vincent O'Sullivan draws on a large collection of personal papers, offcial records and contemporary memoirs to paint a vivid portrait of a man who came to represent so much about his country and his time.

              A Controversial Churchman: Essays on George Selwyn, Bishop of New Zealand and Lichfield, and Sarah Selwyn
                

              A Controversial Churchman: Essays on George Selwyn, Bishop of New Zealand and Lichfield, and Sarah Selwyn (Paperback)

              Edited by Davidson, Allan

              New Zealand's first Anglican bishop, George Selwyn, was a towering figure in the young colony. Denounced as a 'turbulent priest' for speaking out against Crown practices that dispossessed Maori, he brought a vigorous approach to episcopal leadership. His wife Sarah Selwyn support...ed all her husband's activities, in a life characterised as one of 'hardship and anxiety'. She expressed independently her sense of outrage over the Waitara dispute. Selwyn promoted participatory church government, founded the innovative Melanesian Mission, and developed a distinctive style of colonial church architecture. More controversially, he battled with the Church Missionary Society, and was caught up in the bitter maelstrom of settler and Maori politics. His personal links with colonial and ecclesiastical networks gave him access to the heart of empire. These essays offer new insights into Selwyn's role in developing pan-Anglicanism, strengthening links between the Church of England and the Episcopal and Anglican Churches in North America, and his time as Bishop of Lichfield (1868--78). His place in Treaty history, as a political commentator and a valuable source of historical information, is recognised. George Selwyn left a large imprint on New Zealand church and society. This collection both honours and critiques a controversial bishop.

              Te Kerikeri 1770 - 1850 : The Meeting Po
               

              Te Kerikeri 1770 - 1850 : The Meeting Po (Paperback)

              By Binney, Judith

              Kerikeri is the oldest unbroken European settlement site in Aotearoa/New Zealand, and it nestles alongside several contemporaneous (and earlier) Maori sites on the Kerikeri River. Today, the Kerikeri Basin, which acted as a 'meeting pool' for the country's two major cultures, is ...one of New Zealand's most important heritage sites - now being promoted for World Heritage status. A vigorous Maori society had long been established in the north when Anglican missionaries established a station on the river below Kororipo pa in 1819. Kororipo, in the hands of Ngapuhi, was located strategically to control the route to the sea from inland Waimate. For a time, Kerikeri was pivotal in northern Maori politics. The Kerikeri mission house and the Stone Store are both still standing today, built respectively in 1819 and 1837. Here Revd William Yate printed the first work in te reo, and here too he worked with the Maori leaders who wrote the 'letter from the rangatira' of 1831 to the King, initiating the chain of events that culminated in the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, nearby, in 1840. This account tells of Maori and Pakeha in a particular place at a time of radical change. Key historical figures emerge: Hongi Hika, Hone Heke, Rewa, Titore, Waikato, Samuel Marsden, Thomas Kendall, Marianne Williams, George Grey. For a period the two cultures shared a 'middle ground', finding ways to engage. By the 1850s, only James Kemp remained at the mission, and Maori were living under a new dispensation. Land at the Bay of Islands and throughout New Zealand was passing steadily into the newcomers' hands. Evidence of the entwined histories that lie at the heart of Aotearoa/New Zealand can be seen at the Kerikeri Basin. Here, enduring emblems of the past - the surviving buildings, the evocative archaeological sites, the memories of wahi tapu - are shared by both cultures.
