First catch your Weka', the explorer Charles Heaphy advised in 1842, then stuff it with sage and onion and roast it on a stick. In that simple way began a great tradition of New Zealand cooking, from Heaphy to the Edmonds Cookery Book, Alison Holst, Hudson and Halls, and the meal on your plate today. In First Catch Your Weka, David Veart tells the story of what New Zealanders cooked through the recipes we used. Analysing the crusty deposits and grubby thumb prints on a century and a half of cook books, Veart chronicles the extraordinary foods that we have loved: from boiled calf's head to the Bill Rowling cake, Irish famine soup to tinned kidneys with mushrooms. First Catch your Weka illuminates the basic elements that make New Zealand cooking distinctive and reveals how our cuisine and our culture have changed. Throughout that history, Veart finds a people who frequently first liked to catch their weka - building a meal out of oysters taken from the rocks, vegetables from the garden and a lamb from the neighbouring farm. By telling the history of what we ate, First Catch your Weka tells us a great deal about who we have been.

A strong corporate image has power in a competitive marketplace. Its influence on reputational value and customer decision-making is only now beginning to be understood. Interest in corporate branding is exploding as marketing academics and professionals begin to realize how it can boost business performance in measurable ways. For example, it promotes customer patronage without expensive advertising and raises profitability by enabling companies to leverage their brand image when buying from particular sources. Yet there are few empirical studies available to clarify its basic tenets and fewer still that help us understand corporate branding in different parts of the world. Existing books focus mainly on conceptual ideas and real-life examples. Corporate Branding: Areas, arenas and approaches is a unique take on corporate branding that provides a global overview through rigorous research of different geographical areas across industries. An international range of leading scholars contribute their coverage across three clear themes: Area: geographical areas across the globe including the UK, USA, Europe and Asia; Arena: a variety of commercial and not-for-profit sectors, both B2B and B2C; Approach: methodological approaches to brand research design, including qualitative, quantitative, case studies, interpretivistic and social narrative. These three themes enable the reader to consider corporate branding from more perspectives and in more ways than any other corporate branding book. The result is an understanding of this strategically important, growing subject that cannot be found anywhere else. This book is an essential read for any branding student or interested professional.

Toys are fun – but they are also serious business, as David Veart makes clear in this remarkable story of New Zealanders and their toys from Maori voyagers to twenty-first-century gamers. Deploying the tools of archaeology and oral history, Veart in Hello Girls and Boys! digs through a few centuries of pocket knives and plasticine to take us deep into the childhoods of Aotearoa – under the eye of mum or running wild at the end of the orchard, with a doll in the hand or an arrow in the ear, memorising the rail lines of Britain or heading down to Newmarket to pick up a Modelair kitset. David Veart’s story is a big one about how our two peoples made their fun on the far side of the ocean – Maori and Pakeha learned knucklebones from each other, young Aucklanders established the largest Meccano club in the world, and Fun Ho! and Torro, Lincoln and Luvme helped to build a successful local toy industry under the shade of import protection. But this is also a story about little things and little people – the Saxton family making a ‘toy town’ during their voyage to Nelson in 1843; young Maurice Gee building a canoe out of road tar and corrugated iron in 1940s Henderson; and the author’s father firing nails at a nearby glasshouse with a giant shanghai – just for fun. Hello Boys and Girls! covers the crazes and collecting, playtimes and preoccupations of big and little New Zealand kids for generations. With its memories of knucklebones and double happys, golliwogs and tin canoes, marbles and Meccano, Tonka trucks and Buzzy Bees, this is a seriously fun New Zealand toy story.
