New Zealand's leading political biographer and author of the bestselling biography of Robert Muldoon now writes a definitive life of another prime minister, Keith Holyoake. One of our great farming politicians, Holyoake was Prime Minister for over eleven years chiefly in the 1960s, Governor General from 1977 to 1980 and an MP for over 40 years. Though 'Kiwi' Keith was often derided as pompous and unprincipled, a master of consensus and compromise, Gustafson shows a man with astute understanding of people and political issues, skilled at defusing division and preserving order while encouraging gradual progress. He explores in depth Holyoake's performance as Minister of Foreign Affairs, his opposition to nuclear testing and his very reluctant commitment to assist the Americans in Vietnam. He shows his support of economic diversification and the strengthening of New Zealand's economy; of the liberalisation of the criminal law, of divorce laws, of licensing hours and of the establishment of an Ombudsman. He also covers Holyoake's impressive skills as a party politician and his love of hard work and lively debate, his pleasure in working with his hands especially at his property at Kinloch. In Kiwi Keith, Gustafson deftly sets Holyoake's life in the context of a complex and changing society, revealing his ability to sense the spirit of the times, to exploit the luck that came his way and to stay in power for so long.

While the title of the book seems to imply that is written for the medical field, it is certainly meant for the non medical professionals also. If you are considering a career change or early retirement, this book is for you. In Cross Cultural Doctoring you will read about my career as a successful obstetrician and gynecologist in academic medicine at a major university. You will read why I decided at age 55 to leave my position, jump into the unknown and get off the beaten path. I will relate how my wife, Anne, and I accomplished this and how I kept working for various lengths of time in a number of different cultural settings around the world and how we traveled extensively between assignments. The places we lived and worked in, include, Japan, Pakistan, Alaska, Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, Chiapas Mexico, and St Lucia in the West Indies. The book is written as a series of loosely connected anecdotes, some medical, some non-medical. Some are funny and some are not so funny. When appropriate, I have added some reflections about our experiences. I try to convey to the reader the excitement we have felt about our adventures. I hope that the book will inspire readers, medical and non-medical, to consider at some point of their careers to take the step to get off the beaten path. Anne and I certainly have never regretted our choices and have never looked back. Reading this book might also inspire people with similar experiences than ours, to write and publish their story. I hope that you will enjoy reading the book as much as I have enjoyed writing it. One of the highlights of my medical work abroad has been the four months I volunteered at a small Catholic Hospital in Chiapas Mexico. The nuns there did an incredible job running the hospital for the impoverished Mayan population under difficult circumstances. They need all the help they can get. You can read about it in chapter 13 of the book.

.Society does not generally expect its farmers to be visionaries.. Perhaps not, but longtime Maine farmer and homesteader Will Bonsall does possess a unique clarity of vision that extends all the way from the finer points of soil fertility and seed saving to exploring how we can transform civilization and make our world a better, more resilient place. In Will Bonsall's Essential Guide to Radical, Self-Reliant Gardening, Bonsall maintains that to achieve real wealth we first need to understand the economy of the land, to realize that things that might make sense economically don't always make sense ecologically, and vice versa. The marketplace distorts our values, and our modern dependence on petroleum in particular presents a serious barrier to creating a truly sustainable agriculture. For him the solution is, first and foremost, greater self-reliance, especially in the areas of food and energy. By avoiding any off-farm inputs (fertilizers, minerals, and animal manures), Bonsall has learned how to practice a purely veganic, or plant-based, agriculture—not from a strictly moralistic or philosophical perspective, but because it makes good business sense: spend less instead of making more. What this means in practical terms is that Bonsall draws upon the fertility of on-farm plant materials: compost, green manures, perennial grasses, and forest products like leaves and ramial wood chips. And he grows and harvests a diversity of crops from both cultivated and perennial plants: vegetables, grains, pulses, oilseeds, fruits and nuts—even uncommon but useful permaculture plants like groundnut (Apios). In a friendly, almost conversational way, Bonsall imparts a wealth of knowledge drawn from his more than forty years of farming experience. .My goal,. he writes, .is not to feed the world, but to feed myself and let others feed themselves. If we all did that, it might be a good beginning..

An introduction to the birds of New Zealand, aimed at all levels of birdwatcher, and of special use to travellers to the islands. For each of the 170 plus species, there is a brief description, local and Maori names, range, and a guide to localities where it may be seen. This revised and updated second edition contains more species and more areas to watch them. The book does not attempt a complete coverage of New Zealand birds or places. Rather, it is selective, introducing people to birds they have a chance of seeing, and only taking birders to places which are easy to get to and which promise results. This book supports the notion that birds are less endangered and better protected if the public is knowledgeable and educated about them.

A book of humorous stories with a distinctive Kiwi flavour, both true and definitely not true, compiled through Radio Pacific, a leading radio talkback station based in Auckland. Spinning a good yarn is a time-honoured tradition in this country, and we've all heard some great ones. they used to be the favourite of the smoko room, the pub and the family gathering, the social occasions that bound us together as a community. We all know the sort of thing - stories about the larrikin, the local colourful identity, the tall tales and the fact is stranger than fiction true life tales of the absurd and the barely believable. We're in danger of losing them in this era of the internet joke you read rather than tell. After all, half the skill and humour in a good yarn is in the telling and the ever so gentle stretching of the truth. You should never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
