SAID Edward W. 
Orientalism
cover image of Orientalism, for sale in New Zealand

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.

A history of New Zealand's West Coast Irish.
From the 1860s, the West Coast's two major goldfields attracted hopefuls from all over the world, including Irish miners, many of whom stayed on after the goldrushes as part of a community with its own distinctive character.
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.

CRAWLEY Ernest 
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.

BEADELL Len 
Bush Bashers
cover image of Bush Bashers, for sale in New Zealand

Beadell's Gunbarrel Road Construction Party built a network of roads stretching 4,000 miles across the almost unknown wilderness of Central Australia.
This book details his second road across Australia which was driven 1,000 miles from east to west through the heart of the Great Victoria Desert.
Construction took years, through the almost impenetrable mulga scrub and over sand ridges fianlly overcome by Beadell's bulldozer.
For five months his wife and infant daughter camped with him in the desert, commemorated by the Connie Sue Highway, a 400 mile stretch of road which extends from the Warburton Ranges to Rawlinna on the Nullarbor.
Beadell tells the story with an eye for the human and humorous details.
Beadell, one the last ot the true Australian explorers, was born on a farm at West Pennant Hills, NSW, in 1923.
As a surveyor and road builder he has worked all over the Australian outback from Arnhem Land to the Gibson Desert.
In 1958 he was awarded the British Empire Medal for his work in building the Gunbarrel Highway across Central Australia.

An alternative view of human consciousness, a theory of mind and being independent of matter, time, and space.
As a physician, Dossey has often confronted events and miraculous cures in his patients that cannot be explained by conventional science.
Drawing from the latest research, Dr. Dossey synthesizes the ideas of eminent scientists such as Schrödinger, Einstein, Gödel, and Margenau, with the time-honored knowledge of visionaries and mystics to present convincing evidence for a nonlocal, holistic view of mind and reality that can explain transcendental experiences.
In short, he provides new proof of the existence of the soul.
Supported by thoughts from Lao Tzu and Jung, Meister Eckhart and Rilke, as well as from ancient texts such as the Upanishads
A penetrating exploration of the nexus of mysticism and healing, religion and physics.

Becoming Your Own Therapist
An Introduction to the Buddhist Way of Thought
cover image of Becoming Your Own Therapist;  An Introduction to the Buddhist Way of Thought, for sale in New Zealand

"These days, people study and train to become psychologists. Lord Buddha's idea is that everybody should become a psychologist. Each of you should know your own mind; you should become your own psychologist.
This is definitely possible; every human being has the ability to understand his or her own mind. When you understand your own mind, control follows naturally. "Don't think that control is just some Himalayan trip or that it must be easier for people who don't have many possessions. That's not necessarily true.
Next time you are emotionally upset, check for yourself. Instead of busily doing something to distract yourself, relax and try to become aware of what you're doing.
Ask yourself, 'Why am I doing this? How am I doing it? What's the cause?' You will find this to be a wonderful experience. Your main problem is a lack of intensive knowledge-wisdom, awareness, or consciousness, therefore, you will discovet that through understanding, you can easily solve your problems."

In 2010-11 earthquakes badly damaged Riccarton House, but this special place has survived through the Riccarton Bush Trust's heroic efforts to secure the house's future.
