New Zealand was the last country in the world to be discovered and settled by humankind. It was also the first to introduce full democracy. Between those events, and in the century that followed the franchise, the movements and the conflicts of human history have been played out more intensively and more rapidly in New Zealand than anywhere else on Earth. The Penguin History of New Zealand, a new book for a new century, tells that story in all its colour and drama. The narrative that emerges in an inclusive one about men and women, Maori and Pakeha. It shows that British motives in colonising New Zealand were essentially humane; and that Maori, far from being passive victims of a 'fatal impact', coped heroically with colonisation and survived by selectively accepting and adapting what Western technology and culture had to offer. This book, a triumphant fruit of careful research, wide reading and judicious assessment, was an unprecedented best-seller from the time of its first publication in 2003.

The late Michael King's acclaimed Penguin History of New Zealand is the local publishing phenomenon of the early twentieth century. Total sales in paperback and hardback have recently reached a staggering 220,000. King's text has been hailed for its accessibility and for being positive and constructive in a time of uncertainty. This is an illustrated hardback edition in full colour in the same format as Gerard Hutchings' Natural World of New Zealand. To Michael King's wonderful text has been added nearly 300 illustrations researched by David Filer: photographs, early paintings, engravings, maps and ephemera. David Filer is also writing the captions to the illustrations under our direction. Note that there are only 300 illustrations, carefully selected. This new edition is not an 'illustrated history of New Zealand' as such. It is very much Michael King's Penguin History plus some illustrations.

New Zealand was the last major landmass, other than Antarctica, to be settled by humans. The story of this rugged and dynamic land is beautifully narrated, from its origins in Gondwana some 80 million years ago to the twenty-first century. Philippa Mein Smith highlights the effects of the country's smallness and isolation, from its late settlement by Polynesian voyagers and colonisation by Europeans - and the exchanges that made these people Maori and Pakeha - to the dramatic struggles over land and recent efforts to manage global forces. A Concise History of New Zealand places New Zealand in its global and regional context. It unravels key moments - the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, the Anzac landing at Gallipoli, the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior - showing their role as nation-building myths and connecting them with the less dramatic forces, economic and social, that have shaped contemporary New Zealand.

'China's reemergence as a global economic powerhouse has compressed into a single generation an industrial and urban revolution on a scale the world has never seen. Its transformation looks to many foreigners, and to millions of newly prosperous Chinese, like a near-miraculous escape from the agonies of its recent history - late imperial, warlord-republican and Maoist. The great merit of Jonathan Fenby's vivid account of the years since 1850 is to underline how heavily that history still weighs on the present' Rosemary Righter, The Times

"Am Rande der Welt lebte ein alter Mann, sein Pferd hieß Sydney Bridge Upside Down. Er hatte ein Gesicht voller Narben, und das Pferd war ein alter, lahmer Klepper, und ich beginne mit dem Mann und seinem Pferd, weil sie immer irgendwie dabei waren in jenem Sommer, als hier oben an der Küste die schrecklichen Dinge passierten." So beginnt dieser außerordentliche Roman über einen Sommer am Rande der Welt in Calliope Bay. Der dreizehnjährige Harry lebt dort mit seinem Vater und dem kleinen Bruder, er vermisst seine Mutter, die in die Stadt gezogen ist, vielleicht nur für den Sommer, vielleicht für länger. Und während Harry darauf wartet, dass sie zurückkommt, streunt er mit seinen Freunden die steile Küste entlang und erforscht die Ruine der längst verlassenen Fleischfabrik. Im vom Meer heraufwehenden Wind meint Harry die Schreie der Tiere zu hören, die vor langer Zeit dort geschlachtet wurden. Als seine schöne ältere Cousine Caroline ankommt, ist Harry hin- und hergerissen zwischen Kinderspielen und dem Wunsch, sie vor der Zudringlichkeit von Wiggins, dem Fleischer, zu schützen. Mit schrecklichen Konsequenzen. Ein neuseeländischer Klassiker, eine Coming-of-Age Geschichte und eine Familientragödie - David Ballantynes großer Roman erstmals auf Deutsch, übersetzt von Gregor Hens. "Sydney Bridge Upside Down muss zu den ganz großen, einzigartigen Klassikern der Weltliteratur gezählt werden. Außerdem ist dieses Märchen ohne Erlösung einer der größten neuseeländischen Romane."

A New Zealand Book of Beasts is a groundbreaking examination of the interactions between humans and 'nonhuman animals' - both real and imagined - in New Zealand's arts and literature, popular culture, historiography, media and everyday life. Structured in four parts - Animal Icons, Animal Companions, Art Animals and Controversial Animals - the Book of Beasts touches on topics as diverse as moa-hunting and the SPCA, pest-control and pet-keeping, whaling and whale-watching; on species ranging from sheep to sperm whales and from pekapeka to possums; and on the works of authors and artists as various as Samuel Butler and Witi Ihimaera, Lady Mary Anne Barker and Janet Frame, Michael Parekowhai and Don Binney, Bill Hammond and Fiona Pardington. In examining through literature, art and culture the ways New Zealanders use and abuse, shape and are shaped by, glorify and co-opt, and describe and imagine animals, the authors tell us a great deal about our society and culture: how we understand our own identities and those of others; how we regard, inhabit and make use of the natural world; and how we think about what to buy, eat, wear, watch and read. This is an engaging, original and scholarly rigorous book of cultural criticism and a thoughtful addition to New Zealand literature.
