Recalling Aotearoa : indigenous politics and ethnic relations in New Zealand by Augie Fleras( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cultural and national identity have changed dramatically in New Zealand during the latter part of the twentieth century, with the emergence of policies on biculturalism, the development of new immigrant communities, and the increased focus on the Treaty of Waitangi and the settlement of Treaty claims. Recalling Aotearoa: Indigenous Politics and Ethnic Relations in New Zealand examines why these changes have occurred and the nature of the politics involved, and considers new directions for New Zealand as a nation." "Recalling Aotearoa is intended for a broad audience. It will appeal to students of sociology, politics, policy, history, education, social work, and nursing, and to policy analysts, social service agencies, and anyone with an interest in New Zealand's changing society."--Jacket

The politics of nostalgia : racism and the extreme right in New Zealand by Paul Spoonley( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The politics of nostalgia" looks at the history of political racism in New Zealand. From the early 1970s, extreme right-wing groups began to proliferate in this country and to present their ideas more forcefully. The author describes the growth of extremism in the 1970s and 1980s, examines the arguments, style and support for such groups and offers reasons for their appearance. Extreme right-wing and neo-fascist groups are one part of the New Right, and a move towards conservatism. They represent one response to the growing concern about raical and gender issues, a discontent with economic developments and a nostalgia for the untroubled days of the immediate post-war period. Here is an extensive analysis of the new politics of the late 1980s, including a comparison between the experiences of New Zealand, Australia, UK and Canada."--Back cover
Exploring society : sociology for New Zealand students by Gregor McLennan( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third edition of Exploring Society has been extensively revised and brought up to date, with reference to recent events and new research. First and foremost, the text is an introduction to sociology for students at tertiary level, but equally it is an introductory text for New Zealand students. It introduces the major themes in contemporary sociology in a way that is relevant to the culture and issues of students in New Zealand. Exploring Society is the first fully integrated New Zealand sociology text. It blends theory, research and issues through three themes: the social and the personal, the local and the global, and differences and divisions. These themes are used to analyse major areas of sociological interest, such as health, gender and ethnicity, and provide coherence and structure to the text ... No previous knowledge of the discipline of sociology is required or assumed ... each chapter contains an essay by a specialist in a particular field of sociology"--Cover

Mata toa : the life and times of Ranginui Walker by Paul Spoonley( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is part biography and part social and political commentary on the huge changes in the position of Maori in New Zealand society in recent decades. Academic, author, biographer, historian, commentator, controversialist, activist, iwi consultant, mover and shaker - Dr Ranginui Walker has been in the headlines for decades, ever since the beginnings of the Maori political and cultural renaissance in the 1970s. Walker is one of the few Maori leaders to take on the responsibility of crossing the cultural/racial divide and making the Maori world intelligible to Pakeha readers. Articulate and forthright, he has had a major influence on how Pakeha view Maori in the twenty-first century. It is a task he has deliberately accepted, and it has often made him a controversial figure (although only on the Pakeha side - to most Maori he remains highly respected, and he remains heavily involved in many Maori organisations)"--Publisher's description

Loss of jobs, loss of young people, the ageing demographic, the apparently irresistible magnet of Auckland ... the economic fortunes of New Zealand's regions are of great concern to politicians, the business community, schools, employers - and indeed most citizens. What is the dynamic at work here? Is there a remedy? Is there a silver lining? What works? What doesn't? What are the smart regions doing that shows promise? This collection of expert articles addresses the issues facing our regions and investigates the reasons for population loss. Often those solutions involve facing up to the fact that decline is inevitable and unavoidable - and then coming up with smart new plans and policies

Welcome to our world? : immigration and the reshaping of New Zealand by Paul Spoonley( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Zealand is one of the classic immigrant-dependent societies but the nature of migrant flows into the country has changed dramatically since the 1960s. The historic reliance on immigrants from the UK and Ireland was supplemented and then replaced by migrants from elsewhere in the Pacific and then globally, especially from Asia. These changes not only altered New Zealand's demography but also the nature of community life and cityscapes, how diversity has been understood and experienced, and the shape of economic participation - or exclusion. Aotearoa New Zealand is now one of the worlds' most super-diverse societies, with all the excitement and the tensions that accompany such population shifts
