"Māori fishing rights were guaranteed by the Treaty of Waitangi, eroded by Crown actions, and, after years of struggle in the courts, through the Waitangi Tribunal and in protests, Māori fishing rights were restored. This book claims that four elements significantly assisted in the recognition and eventual recovery of Māori fishing rights: The Treaty of Waitangi; the courts; The Waitangi Tribunal and the resilience and tenacity of Māori people. The tradition of fairness and justice in New Zealand society provided a platform for Māori and Pākehā to support the four elements and address fishing rights and other injustices. The restoration of Māori fishing rights, therefore, forms part of a larger picture of New Zealand society accepting that Māori had been unjustly treated and choosing to redress those injustices."--Publisher information.

Deaf people in New Zealand are often little known outside their own culture. People of the Eye brings their world to life in personal histories translated into English with a series of photographs of the deaf community. The storytellers are both old and young, and they reflect both the diversity and commonality of deaf experience; the painful lives of a generation brought up forbidden to use sign language contrasted with the confidence of young people using New Zealand Sign Language as they attend school and assert "deaf pride." The differences between children growing up in deaf families and those who struggle with identity as deaf children in hearing families are illuminating. These are stories of joy and sadness, confusion and resolution, and regret and optimism.

Jane Shore, flippant and world-weary heroine, lives in New York City, works in PR and is officially Ugly On The Inside. An unpromising encounter with a bitter stranger, who shouts at her, 'Did anyone ever tell you that you re ugly? Ugly on the inside,' sets the scene for the next few months of her life. As if Ugly On The Inside wasn't bad enough, Jane's being sidelined at work by the ambitious fashion-victim Lee Munroe; her West Village apartment's being sold; her cousin Frances is going out with her megalomaniac boss; and she s still single the gorgeous Guy Weaver being taken already. Is it time for Jane to acknowledge that the Holy Trinity of job, house and man might not pan out quite how she expected? Is it time for her to accept Mr Not-quite-right, a Brooklyn postcode, and that she's reached the less-than-lofty ceiling of her PR career? Trendy but Casual takes the reader on a madcap ride through the PR scene of hip-hoperas and porn entrepreneurs, and the bars and clubs of Manhattan in Jane s search for love and success.
