              In a tumultuous year, Australia and New Zealand have never been closer, as we move towards a shared travel zone, based on remarkable success in suppressing COVID-19. But why, despite being so close, do we seem to know so little about each other? And is there such a thing as natio...nal character? In this wise and illuminating essay, Laura Tingle looks at leadership, economics, history and more. Competitiveness has marked our relationship from its earliest days. In the past half-century, both countries have been compelled to remake themselves amid shifting economic fortunes. New Zealand has been held up as a model for everything from tax reform to the way we conduct our politics. What have been the outcomes? How do they compare to ours? Tingle considers everything from Morrison and Ardern as national leaders to the different ways each country has dealt with its colonial legacy. What could we learn from New Zealand? And it from us? This is a perceptive, often amusing introduction to a country just like ours in some ways, but quite different in others.

              Becoming Our Future: Global Indigenous Curatorial Practice (Paperback)

              Becoming Our Future: Global Indigenous Curatorial Practice reflects on international Indigenous methodologies in curatorial practice from the geographic spaces of Canada, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Australia to assert specific cultural knowledges, protocols and relationships. The...se knowledges are grounded in continuous international exchanges and draws on the breadth of work within the field. This volume explores the way Indigenous visual art and culture operates within, and from, a structural framework that is unique to the cultural milieu. Through a selection of contributions by Indigenous curators, artists, and scholars, this book brings together perspectives that define curatorial practices, while simultaneously postulating Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination within the three countries. These compelling essays begin to unearth the connections and historical moments that draw Indigenous curatorial practices together and the differences that set them apart. With contributions from Nigel Borell, Freja Carmichael, Karl Chitham, Nici Cumpston, Leuli Eshraghi, Reuben Friend, Jarita Greyeyes, Ioana Gordon-Smith, Dr Heather Igloliorte, Jaimie Isaac, Carly Lane, Cathy Mattes, Kimberley Moulton, Lisa Myers, Dr Julie Nagam, Dr Jolene Rickard, Megan Tamati-Quennell, Josh Tengan and Daina Warren.

              'Wise, compassionate collection of personal essays that forms a nationally important chronicle of our social and political history.' NZ Listener 'Linda Burgess can make you laugh and break your heart, often in the same sentence. Clear-eyed and wise, these elegant essays are the s...tories we share to survive.' Diana Wichtel 'You'll want to read this in one sitting but it's worth savouring every line.' Madeleine Chapman 'Somehow it makes perfect sense that a great New Zealand memoir would be written by a dreamy, left-handed wife of an ex-All Black.' Steve Braunias These pieces read like the freshest of recent novels: clever, restrained and wittily observant. They range across the personal and the observational. There are essays on Linda's lifetime of being an All Black wife (once an AB, always an AB); her love of teaching, education and the young; and a powerful essay on the death of her baby, Toby, striking in its honesty. Linda is interested in family and friendship; shared and sometimes distorted memories. Her personal truths link to universal truths. She explores the era in which she grew up, and her experiences are timeless. She looks at living abroad, at children leaving home, at house-hunting in Wellington, at travelling with a grandchild, at Leonard Cohen concerts as tribal gatherings. Moving but never sentimental, Linda Burgess's essays are an engrossing read.
