              This volume explores mixed race/mixed ethnic identities in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Mixed race and mixed ethnic identity are growing in popularity as research topics around the world. This edited collection looks at mixed race and mixed ethnic identity in New Zealand: a unique conte...xt, as multiple ethnic identities have been officially recognised for more than 30 years. The book draws upon research across a range of disciplines, exploring the historical and contemporary ways in which official and social understandings of mixed race and ethnicity have changed. It focuses on the interactions between race, ethnicity, national identity, indigeneity and culture, especially in terms of visibility and self-defined identity in the New Zealand context. Mana Tangatarua situates New Zealand in the existing international scholarship, positioning experiences from New Zealand within theoretical understandings of mixedness. The chapters develop wider theories of mixed race and mixed ethnic identity, at macro and micro levels, looking at the interconnections between the two. The volume as a whole reveals the diverse ways in which mixed race is experienced and understood, providing a key contribution to the theory and development of mixed race globally.

              Humanity joining the intergalactic community has been a disaster for Bala, the magical creatures of the galaxy: they've been exploited, enslaved and ground down for parts. Now the Century Summit is approaching, when humans will be judged by godlike aliens. When Jenny Perata, disa...bled Maori shuttle captain, is contracted to take a shipment to the summit, she must enlist half-unicorn Gary Cobalt, whose horn powers faster-than-light travel. But he's just been released from prison, for murdering the wife of Jenny's co-pilot, Cowboy Jim...

              Pewhairangi: Bay of Islands Missions and Maori 1814 to 1845 (EPUB ebook)

              By Middleton, Anglea

              Drawing upon the author's ongoing examination of the archaeology of missionization in New Zealand, Pewhairangi also places it in international comparative context. When a small group of three English families landed in the bay below Rangihoua pa in 1814, under the protection of i...ts chief and inhabitants, the story told in Pewhairangi began. It is the story of New Zealand's first permanent European settlement at Hohi, of the church mission that it represented, and of the other mission communities subsequently established in the Bay of Islands at Kerikeri, Paihia, Te Puna, and Waimate. It tells of Ngapuhi and Pakeha engagement, as neighbors, over four decades: the chiefs, the missionaries, the mastermind Samuel Marsden, and the wives and children of all these men. The book also records the multiple comings and goings in the Bay of the amateur and professional artists whose works supply many of the book's fine illustrations.

              Alexander, the curator, is sent to Auckland to escort Captain James Cook to the Auckland Art Gallery. On opening night, the priceless portrait is stolen. Alexander has to find the painting to save his career but he also has to deal with a Soviet spy whom he has been clandestinely... photographing. He meets Dr. Mel Johnson who proves irresistible to him when he is invited to her female-only martial arts school. A Maori Land Rights group led by Wiremu Wilson claims to have kidnapped Captain Cook and is holding the painting ransom for lands that were seized before and after the Treaty of Waitangi, and Wiremu has the authorities in a panic. To further complicate Alexander's stay in Auckland he has to deal with Dr. Mel's boyfriend, and his missing scientific notebooks that are wanted by the FBI and the KGB, as well as intrigue between the Security Service and the New Zealand police. Alexander has to come to terms with being a spy, betraying his friends and deciding how far he will go in his new government job. He struggles to discover who he has become and what he has lost. Set in 1976, The Jaded Spy is the middle story of the Jaded trilogy and is a window into a vibrant changing New Zealand, with the growing Maori Land Rights movement, student riots, the Soviet spy scandal and a political party that will do anything to stay in power and destroy its enemies.
