  • Kā taoka Hākena = Treasures from the Hocken collections

    Tyler, Linda; Strachan, S (2007)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    "Treasures from the Hocken Collections documents almost 200 items, dating from the seventeenth century to the present day, photographed by Bill Nichol. These include historical and modern paintings, photographs and drawings, maps and plans, books, newspapers and posters, sheet music and sound recordings, and of course early New Zealand manuscripts. Many items relate to Maori history. Together they comprise an album in which the reader may browse the origins, obsessions and accomplishments of New Zealand and New Zealanders. Letters, diaries, a jigsaw puzzle, suffragette badges, a skirt embroidered whilst on an Amazonian bicycle ride, a facial tattoo used as a personal signature, leaves employed as writing paper - an ever-changing array of interesting material awaits the reader." "Introductory essays by Rachel Barrowman and Stuart Strachan on Dr Hocken and the development of the Hocken Collections from 1910, along with short essays by curatorial staff, provide the necessary background. Taken as a whole, the book stands as a tribute to the generosity of the Hocken Collections' many benefactors."--BOOK JACKET.

  • Ruling Class Men : money, sex, power

    Donaldson, M; Poynting, Noel (2007)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    What is it like to be a master of the universe? The authors have researched the desires and fears of the world’s most powerful men. The Murdochs, Packers, Kennedys, Agnellis and other men like them, directly determine the fates of thousands and influence the future of the world like no other people. Described as ‘sacred monsters’ by one of their own, they are carefully created to be what they are and to enjoy shaping the world in their own likeness. To learn about these often reclusive men, the authors extended the life-history technique to interrogate autobiographies, diaries and biographies and have created a composite picture, a collective portrait, of tycoons over three generations. The book carefully explores the childhoods, schooling, work and play, sexual activities, marriages and deaths of the wealthiest men who have ever lived. It exposes the nature of ruling-class masculinity itself.
