New Zealand and the Vietnam war : politics and diplomacy by Roberto Giorgio Rabel( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting with the first Indochina War in the 1950s, this historical analysis covers the full story of New Zealand's relations with Vietnam up to the end of the Vietnam War in the 1970s. It explores the diplomatic history of the engagement, which is not well known or understood, and shows that officials and politicians in fact entered the war with extreme reluctance. Running parallel with this is an account of the passionate domestic politics provoked by the war which has had such a long-term effect on New Zealand's foreign policy. Roberto Rabel's thorough and balanced study of these dramatic times is a thought-provoking book."--Jacket

New Zealand's Vietnam War : a history of combat, commitment and controversy by I. C McGibbon( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New Zealand's Vietnam War provides a comprehensive and authoritative account of New Zealand's involvement in the Vietnam War, one that will remain the standard reference work on the subject for decades. Its publication will complete the programme of official war history production that began in 1945. This work focuses on what New Zealand did in South Vietnam, as the reasons for this country's involvement and opposition to it have already been covered in book form. It traces in detail the operations carried out by New Zealand forces in Vietnam and seeks to illuminate the experience of New Zealand soldiers fighting in a guerrilla war. The command structure, logistic support and operational context of fighting within a primarily Australian framework are all covered. The book addresses controversial aspects such as friendly fire incidents, atrocity allegations and veterans grievances, including over Agent Orange. Maori participation in V Force was substantial and its impact is assessed. Although the book is inevitably weighted towards the military, because the troops were the largest element of New Zealand's effort in Vietnam, the efforts of civilians in South Vietnam are also covered in depth. The surgical team operated from 1963 until their evacuation from Qui Nhon just days before North Vietnamese columns entered the city. The efforts of courageous civilians like Sister Mary Laurence and of Red Cross volunteers to alleviate misery among refugees are described. The book also covers the dramatic end of the New Zealand involvement in South Vietnam -- with the surgical team and the New Zealand Embassy evacuated by RNZAF Bristol Freighters just before the communist victory. The war's troubled aftermath is traversed, culminating in the Prime Minister's apology to veterans in 2008"--Publisher's information
More than law and order : policing a changing society 1945-1992 by Susan Butterworth( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Being the New Zealand Police was a challenging task in the second half of the twentieth century. The period covered by this book saw major change and modernisation. The author explores the ways in which the police have overhauled their management structure repeatedly since the 1940s and shows how they have often struggled to position themselves within the modern public sector." "There is much of interest to the general reader here - the 1951 waterfront lockout, the growing role of women in the force, the Crewe murders, the police view of the Springbok Tour in 1981, the development of forensic sciences and communications systems, the emergence of specialist squads, the role of police in Search and Rescue - and the book often sheds new light on recent history."--Jacket

Te taiao = Māori and the natural world by Jennifer Garlick( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In traditional Maori knowledge, the weather, birds, fish and trees, sun and moon are related to each other, and to the people of the land, the tangata whenua. It is truly an interconnected world - a vast family of which humans are children of the earth and sky, and cousins to all living things. In this richly illustrated book, Maori scholars and writers share the traditional knowledge passed down the generations by word of mouth. It provides a unique window on the relationship of the people of this land with their environment, as well as the profound knowledge and necessary skills they needed to survive here. How did Maori describe and predict the weather, use the moon as a guide for successful fishing and planting, and celebrate Matariki, the Maori New Year? How did they describe and move about their environment, and survive. Discover forest lore and traditional uses of forest plants, how Maori hunted moa, harvested birds, fish and shellfish, and cultivated plants they bought with them from Polynesia. In a word - fascinating!

Against the rising sun : New Zealanders remember the Pacific War by Megan Hutching( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells the stories of Kiwis in the Pacific theatre: based in New Caledonia, in action on Mono and Nissan Islands, women working in communications, and a few Air force and Navy personnel. The Pacific War was different: more 'downtime', more contact with the Japanese and Americans, closer to home, a shorter war. Fifteen men have been interviewed, six served in the Army; five in the Navy and four in the Air Force. Army experiences include the garrison in Fiji, life in New Caledonia, time in Guadalcanal and the attacks on Vella Lavella, Nissan/Green Island and Mono Island (the first opposed landing New Zealanders had taken part in since Gallipoli). There are men from the infantry, Divisional Signals, Medical Corps (Field Ambulance), Provosts (military police) and Army Service Corps

The book also includes the experiences of a conscientious objector
Hell or high water : New Zealand merchant seafarers remember the war by Neill Atkinson( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the successful publication of the larger format Oral History Series, these titles are being re-released in trade at a lower price point, in order to meet the increasing interest in military history. During WW2 thousands of New Zealanders served in New Zealand, British and other Allied merchant marines. Many braved the deadly German U-Boat threat during the Battle of the Atlantic - the longest campaign of the war - and sailed in perilous convoys to Arctic Russia, Malta and other high risk routes. Others manned transport and hospital ships and took part in the Allied landings in North Africa, Italy and Normandy, with 105 100 Kiwi merchant seafarers killed, 28 taken prisoner, five of whom died in Japanese captivity, but these figures are artificially low, with many others listed as general British losses. While these figures are small compared to other services, no other civilian group faced such constant risk and the vital contribution of this 'fourth' service has never received the recognition it deserves. the book includes firsthand accounts from men who survived air and submarine attacks, sometimes enduring days adrift in open lifeboats, a seaman awarded the George Cross during the 1942 pedestal convoy to relieve Malta and another who spent three years in Changi prison, amongst many other stirring and poignant accounts of life at war
Doing well and doing good : Ross & Glendining, Scottish enterprise in New Zealand by S. R. H Jones( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries large numbers of Scots emigrted to seek their fortunes around the world. Better educated than the English and with a strong Presbyterian ethic, they were unusually successful in business and politics. This was true for New Zealand as elsewhere. Two contrasting characters - Caithness-born John Ross and Robert Glendining, from Dumfries - founded Ross & Glendining Ltd in Dunedin in 1862, during the gold rush. At one stage the country's largest manufacturer and home of many popular clothing and knitwear brands, R & G was initially a drapery importing business, which opened branches throughout New Zealand and warehouses in all the main centres. Careful management and efficient systems enabled the business to grow, despite strong competition from Australia. After the investment boom of the 1870s, it diversifies, investing in sheep runs, a woollen mill, other manufacturing, and even a coal mine. This history offers a portrait of a firm over a hundred-year peiod - its growth, decline and demise - and a window on the developing New Zealand economy and emergence of a modern manufacturing sector"--Back cover
