• Decolonizing Methodologies Research and Indigenous Peoples
    Decolonizing Methodologies Research and Indigenous Peoples
    This essential volume explores intersections of imperialism and research - specifically, the ways in which imperialism is embedded in disciplines of knowledge and tradition as 'regimes of truth'. Concepts such as 'discovery' and 'claiming' are discussed and an argument presented that the decolonisation of research methods will help to reclaim control over indigenous ways of knowing and being. Now in its eagerly awaited second edition, published in New Zealand by Otago University Press, this bestselling book has been substantially revised, with new case-studies and examples and important additions on new indigenous literature, and the role of research in indigenous struggles for social justice, which brings this essential volume urgently up-to-date.

  • Doctors in Denial: the Forgotten Women in the 'unfortunate Experiment'
    Doctors in Denial: the Forgotten Women in the 'unfortunate Experiment'
    When Dr Ron Jones joined the staff of National Women's Hospital in Auckland in 1973 as a junior obstetrician and gynaecologist, Professor Herbert Green's study into the natural history of carcinoma in-situ of the cervix (CIS) - later called 'the unfortunate experiment' - had been in progress for seven years. By the mid-1960s there was almost universal agreement among gynaecologists and pathologists worldwide that CIS was a precursor of cancer, requiring complete removal. Green, however, believed otherwise, and embarked on a study of women with CIS, without their consent, that involved merely observing, rather than definitively treating them. Many women subsequently developed cancer and some died. In 1984 Jones and senior colleagues Dr Bill McIndoe and Dr Jock McLean published a scientific paper that exposed the truth, and the disastrous outcome of Green's experiment. In a public inquiry in 1987 Judge Sylvia Cartwright observed that an unethical experiment had been carried out in large numbers of women for over 20 years. Since that time there have been attempts to cast Green's work in a more generous light.
    This rewriting of history has spurred Ron Jones to set the record straight by telling his personal story: a story of the unnecessary suffering of countless women, a story of professional arrogance and misplaced loyalties, and a story of doctors in denial of the truth.

  • Fifty Years a Feminist
    Fifty Years a Feminist
    In 1971 Sue Kedgley and a group of other young feminists carried a coffin into Auckland's Albert Park to protest against decades of stagnant advancement for New Zealand women since they won the right to vote in 1893. From that day, she became synonymous with Second Wave feminism in this country, most notably organising a tour by Germaine Greer that ended in an arrest and court appearance.

    In this direct, energetic and focused autobiography, Kedgley tracks the development of feminism over the last five decades and its intersection with her life, describing how she went from debutante to stroppy activist, journalist, safe-food activist and Green politician.

    Her rich and rewarding life has included encounters with Betty Friedan, Yoko Ono, Kofi Annan, Sonja Davies and the Dalai Lama, and she has never abandoned her feminist convictions. She regrets that there is still a culture of male entitlement, sexism and double standards, and that women are still victims of violence. Even so, she argues, feminism has achieved an extraordinary amount. Fifty years ago women were a sort of underclass. Now they have entered almost every sphere of national life, even if many pay a high price for their hard-won success.

    Thanks to the movement, she says, after centuries of subjugation, women are finally coming into their own. It is, she says, their time now, and their turn.

  • For King and Country Four Brothers Four Crosses
    For King and Country Four Brothers Four Crosses
    The third of three books by military historian Jock Vennell on New Zealand's participation in World War 1 through the experiences of its commanders and the men they led. A biography of Major General Sir Andrew Russell, commander of the New Zealand Division in France from 1916 to the end of the war, was followed by the first published biography of Gallipoli hero, Lieutenant Colonel William Malone. This book is the story of a New Zealand family of five brothers who enlisted to fight for their country in World War 1 and never returned. They were among the more than 18,000 young men who lost their lives fighting for the British Empire to which their country belonged in 1914. Countless others were badly wounded or returned home so physically and mentally damaged that they could play no useful part in post-war society. Through the tragedy of the Christophers family, military historian Jock Vennell traces the social and economic damage done to New Zealand society by the war, destroying so many of the best of its coming generation, disrupting nationally important industries and social services and limiting personal freedoms. He looks at why so many young men willingly answered the call to serve their King, country, and empire, despite the terrible loss of life sustained on the battlefields of Europe, Turkey, and the Middle East over four years of

  • French Akaroa
    French Akaroa
    Updated reprint While the British were sending settlers to the North Island in 1840, the French were sending them to the South Island. This book looks at the elaborate French government-backed plans to settle and annex 'Southern New Zealand' - and at what the French did when they found the British had got there first. The lives of the French (and German) men, women and children who ended up creating little settlements in Akaroa Harbour is a major focus of this fascinating book, which also explains some of the French heritage that attracts so many tourists to the Banks Peninsula town of Akaroa today. The first edition of Peter Tremewan’s ‘French Akaroa’ was published in 1990, and the second edition was extensively updated and enlarged for publication in 2010. ‘French Akaroa’ has now been reprinted with minor corrections, new information having come to hand.

  • From Suffrage to a Seat in the House The path to parliament for New Zealand women
    From Suffrage to a Seat in the House The path to parliament for New Zealand women
    New Zealand has always proudly worn its status of being the first country to enfranchise women. But not many know that it took a further 40 long years to get the first woman elected to Parliament. In fact women were not even entitled to stand as candidates in national elections until 1919 - 26 years after they won the right to vote in those elections. Even then there was resistance, with editor of the Auckland Star stating that it would open the way for 'a class of aggressive females who, thirsting for publicity, would be constantly pushing themselves forward into positions for which they are in no sense fitted'. The journey 'from the home to the House' was a shamefully protracted one for New Zealand women, as many male parliamentarians who grudgingly accepted the franchise being extended to women staunchly resisted any further progress. Their political machinations and filibustering were highly effective. Eventually, with an additional 130,000 voters enrolled, politicians began to realise that women's votes - and even women's voices - mattered. However, it was not until 1933 that the first woman was elected to the New Zealand Parliament, when Elizabeth McCombs won the Lyttelton seat, following the death of her husband, the sitting MP. The history of women striving to share in governing the country, a neglected footnote in the nation's electoral history, is now captured in this essential work by Jenny Coleman. She has drawn on a wide range of sources to create a rich portrayal of a rapidly evolving colonial society in which new ideas and social change were in constant friction with the status quo.
