  • Seat at the Table: New Zealand and the United Nations Security Council, 2015-2016
    Seat at the Table: New Zealand and the United Nations Security Council, 2015-2016
    In 2015 New Zealand began its fourth term as a non-permanent member of the United Nation's Security Council. Although the Council is sometimes thought of as an old boys' club of increasingly irrelevant superpowers, this book asks whether there is a role for smaller nations on the Council, and whether they can effect meaningful change for those suffering in war-torn and corrupt countries.
    Featuring engrossing chapters by key players, from the Minister for Foreign Affairs at the time, Murray McCully, to NZ President of the Security Council in July 2015 and September 2016, Gerard van Bohemen, this book tracks New Zealand's term on the UN Security Council and offers real insight into its day-to-day workings. It details how New Zealand sought to improve the Council's processes and wrest some power away from the 'P5' - US, UK, France, Russia and China. It also reflects on whether other 'small states' should follow New Zealand's example and expend their material and human resources on seeking a seat on the Security Council.

  • See No Evil
    See No Evil
    See No Evil issues a challenge to New Zealanders. The book begins by relating the little-known history of West Papua, but its focus is on the impact of New Zealand’s foreign policy on the indigenous Melanesian inhabitants. In the 1950s New Zealand supported self-determination for the former Dutch colony, but in 1962 opted to back Indonesia as it took over the territory. Delving deep into historical government archives, many of them obtained under the Official Information Act, this meticulously researched book uncovers the untold story of New Zealand’s unprincipled and often hypocritical diplomacy. The consequences of repressive Indonesian rule have been tragic for the West Papuan people, who are experiencing ‘slow genocide’. West Papua remains largely closed to foreign journalists, but its story is now beginning to be heard. A growing number of Pacific Island nations are calling for change, but so far New Zealand has opted for caution and collusion to preserve a ‘business as usual’ relationship with Indonesia. See No Evil is a shocking account by one of New Zealand’s most respected authors on peace and Pacific issues, issuing a powerful call for a just and permanent solution – self-determination – for the people of West Papua.

  • Struggle for Sovereignty New Zealand and Twenty First Century Statehood
    Struggle for Sovereignty New Zealand and Twenty First Century Statehood
    In the era of public choice and free markets, does the New Zealand state still have the best interests of its individual citizens at heart? Since 1984, as Margaret Wilson argues, the shift to a neo-liberal public policy framework has profoundly affected the country's sovereignty. In this far-sighted BWB Text, Professor Wilson draws on a wealth of knowledge and experience to assess the future of New Zealand statehood in a globalised world.

  • Tauira Maori Methods of Learning and Teaching
    Tauira Maori Methods of Learning and Teaching
    Based on extensive interviews with 21 individuals, this book allows us to listen to M?ori from Northland recall the mid-20th century rural world in which they grew up. MetgeAEs work tackles important questions about M?ori teaching and learning: What was the role of whanau and hapu, household and marae, kaumatua and siblings, work and play in learning? How much learning was practical and how much by teaching? Metge shows that M?ori ways of learning flourished alongside the school system in rural Northland and that those educational practices had a particular form and philosophy. M?ori focused on learning by doing, teaching in context, learning in a group, memorising, and advancement when ready. M?ori of rural Northland imparted cultural knowledge as well as practical skills through daily life and storytelling, in whanau and community activities. Under achievement of M?ori children in state schools is often attributed to deficiencies in the childrenAEs home environment. Joan Metge presents a different view. She introduces readers to M?ori methods of teaching and learning that are rich in lessons for us all.

  • Tax and Fairness
    Tax and Fairness
    The world has changed a lot in the last thirty years, but New Zealand's tax system hasn't. Since the 1980s New Zealand's taxation policy has remained the same, despite substantial economic and social changes. The system may be familiar, but is it fair?Deborah Russell and Terry Baucher's lively analysis shows why answers to this question cut to the heart of whether New Zealand can be considered an egalitarian country. Drawing on the latest evidence and using plain language, they explore thorny issues such as the taxation of housing, multinationals and inequality between generations. The remedies proposed in this short book will help change the way New Zealanders think about tax in the twenty-first century.

  • That F Word Growing Up Feminist in Aotearoa
    That F Word Growing Up Feminist in Aotearoa
    A wake-up call and a battle-cry for all Kiwi women Lizzie Marvelly tells the story of New Zealand's feminist roots, then traverses the modern landscape, tearing apart areas of gender imbalance and pervading attitudes to Kiwi women. In particular, Lizzie examines how men have been brought up with certain values - the rugby, racing and beer mentality we know all too well. Lizzie grew up an ardent Chiefs and All Blacks fan, but a wiser head now recognises that there are still endemic issues for society to address. Lizzie speaks about her own first-hand experiences with sexism and male misconduct, while also offering advice to young girls on how to take full control of their lives.

    Time of Useful Consciousness Acting Urgently on Climate Change 2015
    'The bottom line question is: what actions in this time period are truly vital, and will we take them?'Our climate is changing, in ways that will have long-term impacts for us and for our children. Yet still we fail to take meaningful action. Why? And when will it be too late?Ralph Chapman argues that we have only 'a small and shrinking window of time' before the pressures from climate change become too great for us to address them coherently. This BWB Text is a practical call to arms for New Zealand citizens and policy makers alike, identifying the actions that are urgent and critical for the creation of a green economy and a sustainable future.

  • Transforming the Welfare State
    Transforming the Welfare State
    In this BWB Text, Jonathan Boston tackles one of the most urgent questions in contemporary New Zealand: how should we transform the welfare state? Not only do we need to alleviate our current serious social problems, but we also need to meet the challenges of the future in a way that enhances intergenerational fairness and wellbeing. The answer, Boston argues, lies in a comprehensive package of reforms covering the benefit system, family assistance, child support, housing, and health care.

  • Turning Point Auckland
    Turning Point Auckland
    Auckland is at a turning point. At current growth rates it will pass two million people sometime during the decade beginning 2022, at which point social and infrastructure problems will begin to compound.

    This book is for two groups of people: new residents coming to Auckland who will need us to prepare the way for them, and current residents who wonder what we can do to improve the city.

    Drawing on the latest international thinking on cities, Owen Gill puts forward a radical yet sensible agenda for change to allow Auckland to take its place as a leading hub of the Asia-Pacific region.

    Turning Point Auckland features colour images illustrating Auckland's diverse environments and succinct appendices that summarise the author's proposals for making this a truly great city.
