Alexis de Tocqueville : A Life

A new biography of one of the greatest political thinkers of all time.
A French aristocrat who lost nearly his entire family in the Reign of Terror, de Tocqueville spent most of his adult life struggling for liberty under the unsuccessful regimes of nineteenth-century France.
When he was twenty-five he travelled to America, encountering democracy for the first time, the experience contributing to his incisive writing on liberty and democracy.
His Le ancien regime launched the scholarly study of the French Revolution, and Democracy in America remains the best book ever written by a European about the United States.

MACCARI Daniela Edited by Therese PICKARD 
A Nun Always
cover image of A Nun Always: The Story of Teresa Grigolini, an Italian Missionary Sister in the Sudan, 1876-98, for sale in New Zealand

The Story of Teresa Grigolini, an Italian Missionary Sister in the Sudan, 1876-98.
Sister Teresa Grigolini was captured by the Islamist Mahdists in 1882, and with others of her community became a slave, constantly abused and threatened with death.
Some of them died in these appalling conditions, but no threat could persuade them to give up their faith as was demanded constantly of them.
The personal and tragic life events of Teresa Grigolini occur at the time of the rise of the Mahdists against the long and oppressive rule of the Sudan by Egypt, supported by English colonial interests, the 1885 fall of Khartoum, and eventually the Battle of Omdurman in 1898, and the re-taking of Khartoum and the Sudan by Kitchener's Anglo-Egyptian army.
In 1898 the remaining few of the missionary captives were freed after sixteen years in captivity, but life for Sister Teresa had changed forever.
Her story has been pieced together from her own and other letters, documents which enchant, edify, shock and sadden, but ultimately leave the reader with spirits raised for the love, strength and commitment of a remarkable woman.

Thus Spoke Zarathustra
cover image of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, for sale in New Zealand

Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary thinkers in Western philosophy, and Thus Spoke Zarathustra remains his most influential work.
The ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor.
With blazing intensity, Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious pieties or meek submission, but in an all-powerful life force: passionate, chaotic and free.

[SAI BABA] Howard MURPHET 
Sai Baba Man of Miracles
cover image of Sai Baba Man of Miracles, for sale in New Zealand

Murphet recounts some of the achievements of one of the most impressive men of miracles to appear in centuries, Satya Sai Baba.
His followers believe him to be a reincarnation of Sai Baba of Shirdi who died in 1918, appears to have been born with phenomenal powers, which he used in childhood and has employed constantly and openly ever since.
They include all the varieties of E.S.P. and psychokinesis known to psychic science and more besides.
The author, a Westerner devoted to science and logic, spent many months with Satya Said Baba, and claims to have found that his unscientific, illogical miracles were, in fact, genuine yogic siddhis.
He found, too, that along with Christ-like miraculous powers went a Christ-like love, compassion and the God-knowledge that opens the door to a new vision of life.

Colonial Fare
cover image of Colonial Fare, for sale in New Zealand

What happened to European women after they arrived in the raw colony?
From their letters, diaries and cookbooks, the story of Colonial Women emerges.
Recording their struggles to find housing, food and friends, we learn how they kept food fresh without a refrigerator, how illnesses were treated without antibiotics and how they found entertainment without radio, tv or movies.
Pioneering women worked hard, often at backbreaking tasks like washing clothes without running water (let alone hot) or humping heavy iron cooking pots, and yet they recounted their happenings with humour and incredible optimism.
Some of their problems were unique: keeping the yeast alive, churning butter from pigeon fat, storing candles where rats would not eat them.
Other problems are the same as women face today: bearing loneliness and isolation, coping with culinary disasters, having the right clothes for the occasion and finding time to read.

Neva Clarke McKenna was too embarrassed and afraid to tell the story of her experiences as a clerical secretary in Italy during the Second World War.
With her participation in the award-winning film War Stories she raised the courage to write her own personal account, revealing herself as the person she was in her wartime diaries.
This is the experience of one ordinary NZ girl and how the war changed her life forever as she worked close to the NZ men in Italy, close to the killing, the wounding and the surviving.
It could be the story of many women, women who were once young girls whose lives crumbled with disillusionment, whose choices were stolen from them by the fact of war, yet who picked up the pieces and got on with life because there was no alternative.

The work of potter, artist, craftsperson, railway enthusiast and iconoclast Barry Brickell.
Essays by David Craig and Gregory O'Brien and with both newly commissioned photographs by Haru Sameshima and historic images.
An essay by David Craig sketches out Brickell's history and career, then takes us through crucial themes, preoccupations and forms in his work, from sustaining domesticware to the influences of the medieval grotesque and Pacific and Sepik motifs; from realistic murals to bodily 'morphs'.
Brickell's personal preoccupations with energy and engineering, the body and conservation, are made clear.
His most well-known forms, for example, the 'spiromorphs', are large-scale spiral creations built from coiled clay, which twist and unfold in curves that parallel the spirals of his railway.

The Civilization of Europe in the Renaissance
cover image of The Civilization of Europe in the Renaissance, for sale in New Zealand

A rich portrait of Europe and its civilization in the 16th century - the moment when what had been known as Christendom first became Europe, an entity in the minds of its own inhabitants.
A gigantic portrait of the age, enlivened by a mass of detail about the lives of often obscure figures who Hale brings to life to give point to his multiplicity of arguments.
What precisely is meant by "civilization"?
How usefully descriptive of the period as a whole is "Renaissance"?
What, indeed, did "Italy" (for example) mean to contemporaries?

Frank Alack was a pioneer guide at both the Hermitage and Fox Glacier, and has climbed many of New Zealand's famous peaks, guided both eager tourists and experienced climbers, and survived snow storms and avalanches.
Eventually, marriage to Dora Deal, a well known violinist from Christchurch, started to tug him away from his beloved mountains. But he never lost his active love of Nature.
Time and again he returned to the hills, and finally succeeded in visiting the Antarctic, just as in his youth he had reached the Arctic.

SAID Edward W. 
Orientalism

In this seminal work that has redefined our understanding of colonialism and empire, Said surveys the history and nature of Western attitudes towards the East, considering orientalism as a powerful European ideological creation - a way of dealing with the 'otherness' of eastern culture, customs and beliefs.
Tracing this view through the writings of Homer, Nerval and Flaubert, Disraeli and Kipling.
Drawing on his own experiences as an Arab Palestinian living in the West, Said examines how these ideas can be a reflection of European imperialism and racism.

This is the first study on the history of those Irish; where they came from, who they were, how many women came and what they did, how people sustained their family connections, what they believed in the context of the history of the larger Irish diaspora.

Transactional Analysis in Psychotherapy

The Mystic Rose
A Study of Primitive Marriage and of Primitive Thought in its Bearing on Marriage
cover image of The Mystic Rose; A Study of Primitive Marriage and of Primitive Thought in its Bearing on Marriage, for sale in New Zealand

Revised by Theodore Betserman.
Originally published in 1902 and immediately recognised as a vital contribution to the literature of anthropology and primitive psychology.
An exhaustive survey of primitive marriage rites and customs focusing on the state of "taboo" arising from evil agents and influences.
Taboos affect primitive thought and action at every level of personal and social life and come into force at any time of private or communal crisis - at birth and puberty, in sickness and death, in famine and war - and particularly affect two basic spheres of activity, eating and sexual intercourse.
It is in the ceremonies and rituals surrounding marriage that the taboos are broken.
Crawley strongly rejects the "communistic" theory of primitive marriage and advances convincing evidence of its being generally regarded as a personal relationship - a joining together of two people previously regarded as mutually taboo.
His suggestions as to the psychological motivations of primitive marriage customs have been widely accepted by modern theorists, and the reissue of his famous book, in one volume for the first time, will be welcomed by students of sociology.
A fascinating and lucid account of a system of social behaviour on which many of our own, reputedly "civilised" beliefs and customs are modelled.

cover image of Zapp! The Lightning of Empowerment , for sale in New Zealand

Most managers know that revitalization in their companies must occur from the ground up. But how can you get that message to your employees without applying the kind of pressure that makes them even less productive?
Empowerment is the answer, and it's easier to achieve than you may think. In this motivating book you will find specific strategies designed to help you empower your employees daily.
More concrete than other works on participative management, Zapp! shows you how to encourage responsibility acknowledgment, and creativity so that employees feel that they gown their jobs.
With hands-on examples, you will learn the basics that allow you to use this principle in every situation, from large meetings to one-on-one conversations to formal evaluations, and really get results.
Best of all, you can use the techniques in Zopp! to pursue any number of business goals, whether you're trying to increase productivity improve customer service, or innovate faster than the competition.
It's all here, in an accessible guide for the successful managers of tomorrow.

FINLEY, M.I. 
The Ancient Economy
cover image of The Ancient Economy, for sale in New Zealand

"Technical progress, economic growth, productivity, even efficiency have not been significant goals since the beginning of time."
The ancient Mediterranean world had no recognizable real-property market, never fought a commercially inspired war, witnessed no drive to capital formation, and assigned the management of many substantial enterprises to slaves and ex-slaves.
Therefore, to study the economies of the ancient world, one must begin by discarding many premises that seemed self-evident before Finley showed that they were useless or misleading.

In the 780s northern Britain was dominated by Pictavia, centred in north-eastern Scotland and Northumbria which straddled the modern Anglo-Scottish border.
Within a hundred years both of these kingdoms had been thrown into chaos by the onslaught of the Vikings and within two hundred years they had disappeared.
In this period occured the destruction of the Picts and the rise of the Scottish kingdom based on contemporary accounts from fragmentary sources which survive from this darkest period in Scottish history.
These important sources are presented in full and their value as evidence is thoroughly explored and evaluated.
