In New Zealand, the economic reforms launched by the 1984 David Lange-led Labor government changed the country forever. Agriculture bore the brunt of those changes, and Rogernomics, the name by which the era came to be known, became an historical reference point for the primary sector: a defining and pivotal moment when financial subsidies abruptly ended and agricultural farms learned to live without government influence, interference, or protection. The changes were more sweeping and wide ranging than anything farmers and farming had expected. Some adjusted, some did not. Farmers laid down tools in protest. Many were forced from their land. Families split. There was a spike in suicides and stories spread of farmers hiding machinery from repossession agents. Twenty years on, there has been little documentation of what is folklore and what is fact. This gripping and moving book, by award-winning agricultural journalist Neal Wallace, relates the story of a rural sector battered and bruised by rapid change. It traces the period, building up to the economic changes, through interviews with political and sector leaders. The most important contributions come from those most affected: farmers and community leaders who recollect and reveal their often very painful experiences.

A history of New Zealanders and the sports that we have made our own, from the Maori world to today’s professional athletes.‘. . . those two mighty products of the land, the Canterbury lamb and the All Blacks, have made New Zealand what she is in spite of politicians’ claims to the contrary’, wrote Dick Brittenden in 1954. ‘For many in New Zealand, prowess at sport replaces the social graces; in the pubs, during the furious session between 5pm and closing time an hour later, the friend of a relative of a horse trainer is a veritable patriarch. No matador in Madrid, no tenor in Turin could be sure of such flattering attention.’ As Brittenden suggested, sport has played a central part in the social and cultural history of Aotearoa New Zealand throughout its history. This book tells the story of sport in New Zealand for the first time, from the Maori world to today’s professional athletes. Through rugby and netball, bodybuilding and surf lifesaving, the book introduces readers to the history of the codes, the organisations and the players. It takes us into the stands and on to the sidelines to examine the meaning of sport to its participants, its followers, and to the communities to which they belonged. Why did rugby become much more important than soccer in New Zealand? What role have Maori played in our sporting life? Do we really ‘punch above our weight’ in international sport? Does sport still define our national identity? Viewing New Zealand sport as activity and as imagination, Sport and the New Zealanders is a major history of a central strand of New Zealand life.

This book offers a sweeping history of Pureora Forest Park, one of the most significant sites of natural and cultural history interest in New Zealand. The authors review the geological history of the volcanic zone, its flora and fauna, and the history of Maori and European utilization of forest resources. Chapter-length discussions cover management of the native forest by the New Zealand Forest Service; the forest village and its sawmills; the intensive timber harvesting, and the conflicts with conservationists and expensive compensation agreements that ensued. Separate chapters cover initiatives to protect the forest from introduced herbivores; to guard protected species, especially birds, from predators; the facilities for recreational hunting; the development of the Timber Trail, an 83 km cycleway through the forest and along old logging tramways, complete with detailed interpretation signs illustrating the history of logging; and the family recreation areas and tracks. The final chapter gathers conclusions and advances prospects for the future of Pureora Forest. In sum, the book demonstrates how ecological study, combined with a respect for people and for nature plus a flexible, interdisciplinary approach to both local history and current scientific priorities, can be welded into a consistently effective strategy for addressing the pressing forest-ecology questions of our time.

This amazing, highly readable book breaks a new ground in revealing the dominant theories and policies that have had profound effects on the strategies to accommodate cultural diversity on university campus. Few have researched intercultural communication from macro to micro perspectives and applied a multidisciplinary approach by drawing on research from disciplines such as sociology, economics, politics, social psychology, management, communication, culture and language. This book has outlined an emerging concept of some considerable significance, interculturalisation, from a variety of contemporary perspectives, and indicated its conceptual potential in understanding the impact of higher education on globalisation, internationalisation and the knowledge economy. The book has also provided a critical assessment of the issues in globalisation and the internationalisation of higher education such as the homogenisation of cultures and the dominance of economic imperatives. In general, this book represents an original application of specialist literatures that develops certain theorisations and understandings together for the first time in a new constellation. Hence, the book provides an excellent contribution to the current interest in globalisation across disciplines, particularly to the research in intercultural communication. It should be of great interest to philosophers, educators and researchers in the intercultural studies. This book is a significant and powerful work that is sure to invigorate interesting discussions of higher education and particularly intercultural education for years to come. The publication of this book announces the emergence of an original approach to intercultural communication that scholars around the world will soon to appreciate.

Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2014 Scores of books have been written by Western experts, mainly American, looking at the root causes of the conflict between Iran and the US. However, none of them have presented an inside look at this complex relationship from within the Iranian culture, society, and most importantly, the Iranian policy-making system. This gap has been the cause of misperceptions, misanalyses, and conflict, followed by the adoption of US policies that have failed to achieve their objectives. Seyed Hossein Mousavian worked for over 30 years on diplomatic efforts between Iran and the West, serving in numerous official posts, and as a confidante, colleague, and peer to many former and current high ranking Iranian officials, including now-President Hassan Rouhani and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Here the former diplomat gives an insider's history of the troubled relationship between Iran and the US. His unique firsthand perspective blends memoir, analysis, and never before seen details of the many near misses in the quest for rapprochement. With so much at stake, the book concludes with a roadmap for peace that both nations so desperately need.

What drives economic growth in New Zealand? How has New Zealand been impacted by globalization and the financial crisis? What will shape future productivity and competitiveness? In this book, leading economists assemble key data to provide an analytical introduction to the contemporary New Zealand economy. Interpreting key economic indicators over time—gross domestic product and interest rates, population, employment and productivity levels, trade and investment, and government accounts—this examination focuses particularly on two issues: globalization and the rise of the Asian economies during the past 30 years, and the origins and continuing effects of the 2007–08 global financial crisis. Rich with local data and case studies, this is a clear and concise assessment of the current structure and performance of New Zealand’s economy from a historical and global perspective.
