New Zealand Identities from the Author: James H. Liu. Fifteen writers with diverse personal and scholarly backgrounds come together in this collection to examine issues of identity, viewing it as both a departing point and end destination for the various peoples who have come to call New Zealand "home." The essays reflect the diversity of thinking about identity across the social sciences as well as common themes that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Their explorations of the process of identity-making underscore the historical roots, dynamism, and plurality of ideas of national identity in New Zealand, offering a view not only of what has been but also what might be on the horizon.

The Fixed And The Fickle from the Author: Hans Mol. This volume describes the effect of religion on the identity of the native Maoris and Pakehas (white settlers in New Zealand. The description is woven around the idea that the fixed (identity) is constantly "unglued" by the fickle (change). The Maori charismatic movements are seen as attempts to absorb the devastating effects of Pakeha incursion into a viable system of meaning. Yet the white white settlers, too, had to tame the discontinuities with the past and the ravages of cultural change. Religion is seen to be at the forefront of the struggle to defend and reinforce the boundaries around the variety of identities. In presenting his thesis, the author has brought together a wide range of information—other anthropological and sociological studies, historical accounts, official statements, and religious census data. The volume will be of interest to students of sociology, anthropology, and religion.

Mixed Race Identities In Australia New Zealand And The Pacific Islands from the Author: Farida Fozdar. This volume offers a "southern," Pacific Ocean perspective on the topic of racial hybridity, exploring it through a series of case studies from around the Australo-Pacific region, a region unique as a result of its very particular colonial histories. Focusing on the interaction between "race" and culture, especially in terms of visibility and self-defined identity; and the particular characteristics of political, cultural and social formations in the countries of this region, the book explores the complexity of the lived mixed race experience, the structural forces of particular colonial and post-colonial environments and political regimes, and historical influences on contemporary identities and cultural expressions of mixed-ness.

New Zealand Under Mmp from the Author: Jonathan Boston. In a controversial move recently, New Zealanders voted to introduce a new electoral system known as mixed member proportional (MMP). In 1996 the first election will be held under this system. Supporters of MMP claim that it will reduce the power of the cabinet, enhance the role and influence of Parliament, increase public consultation, more accurately represent the people's political preferences, and end the old adversarial style of politics. Critics, however, fear that it will create political uncertainty, governmental instability, policy paralysis and economic stagnation. New Zealand Under MMP assesses the long-term impact of these changes on New Zealand's political system. The authors consider how the party system could evolve, how governments will be formed, and what differences can be expected in the roles of cabinet and Parliament. Attention is also given to the implications of MMP for key groups of voters, as well as the consequences for the public service, pressure groups, and policymaking.

Land Of Milk And Honey from the Author: Avril Bell. Since colonization, New Zealand has been mythologized as a 'land of milk and honey'– a promised land of natural abundance and endless opportunity. In the twenty-first century, the country has become literally a land of milk and honey as agricultural exports from such commodities dominate the national economy. But does New Zealand live up to its promise? In this introductory textbook for first year sociology students, some of this country's leading social scientists help us to make sense of contemporary New Zealand. In 21 chapters, the authors examine New Zealand's political identity and constitution; our Maori, Pakeha, Pacific and Asian peoples; problems of class, poverty and inequality; gender and sexualities; and contemporary debates around aging, incarceration and the environment. The authors find a complex society where thirty years of neoliberal economics and globalizing politics have exacerbated inequalities that are differentially experienced by class, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and age. These social divides and problems are at the heart of this text. For sociology students and for a wider audience of New Zealanders, A Land of Milk and Honey? is a lively introduction to where we have come from, where we are now, and where New Zealand society might be headed.
