  • Guidebook for ‘Land and Lakes’ field trip, New Zealand Society of Soil Science Biennial Conference, Rotorua

    Lowe, David J. (2006-11-01)

    Book
    University of Waikato

    Welcome to Rotorua. The trip today (28th November, 2006) has twin themes: “Land and soil in the making” and “Land and soil management for cleaner water”. It offers an opportunity for participants to ‘peep behind the scenes’ at the wonderful volcanic landscapes, ash layers, soils, and waters of the Lake Rotorua−Lake Okaro−Lake Rerewhakaaitu areas in the Rotorua region. We hope the trip will be an informative, interesting and enjoyable day out with something for everyone. We will look at the linkages between soils and water and show how science and society are working together to understand and reduce the impacts of municipal, farming and forestry activities on our environment. Multiple layers of tephras, clear examples of buried soil horizons, and three remarkable soil profiles will be seen. Soil and environmental scientists, foresters, tephrochronologists (volcanic ash specialists), and volcanologists will join forces with local farmers and others to give us their perspectives at various stops during the trip.

  • China's compliance in global affairs trade, arms control, environmental protection, human rights

    Chan, Gerald (2006)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    "The rise of China has thrown open many important and interesting questions: Will a strong China behave responsibly in world affairs, complying with the rules and norms of the "international community"? Or will it defy "universal standards", and fight instead for its own interests and those of the developing world, thereby challenging the global order dominated by the West?" "The first of its kind to gauge in a comprehensive manner China's responsibility in world affairs, this book scrutinizes China's compliance with international rules and norms, embodied in the treaties that it has signed or ratified, especially in the areas of trade, arms control and non-proliferation, protection of the environment, and human rights." "The book also examines Sino-US relations, as the US closely monitors China's compliance in world affairs. It is that behavior which is largely determining the relative emphasis put on engagement with or containment of China by the West, and by the US in particular."--BOOK JACKET.

  • Colin McCahon: The Titirangi Years 1953-1959

    Simpson, Peter (2006)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Colin McCahon has been a major research interest of mine for more than twenty years. This has resulted in several books and curated exhibitions, including Answering Hark, 1999-2001 (both exhibition and book), James K. Baxter and Colin McCahon: Candles in a Dark Room (exhibition and book, 1996), and numerous articles and conference papers (some listed below). In the case of Colin McCahon: The Titirangi Years 1953-1959, the exhibition (at Lopdell House, Titirangi) came first and the book came after. Both book and exhibition documented Colin McCahon’s first years in Auckland, a period in which he was coming to terms with a new environment (warmer, wetter, more multi-cultural, different vegetation), and also exploring a range of international influences, firstly cubism (especially Braque, Gris and Picasso), and later (after his 1958 visit to America), abstract expressionism (Pollock, Motherwell, Diebenkorn) and geometrical abstraction (Mondrian, Malevich). The book draws extensively on McCahon’s private correspondence with friends such as John Caselberg, Charles Brasch, and Ron O’Reilly.
