The isthmus between two harbours on which modern Auckland now stands and which Maori called Tamaki-makau-rau was a virtual population void when Hobson bought it in 1840 from the resident owners as the site of his new capital. But it was reputed in former times to be the most densely settled region in Aotearoa. From Tamaki-makau-rau to Auckland explains that paradox. It traces the history of the region from the beginnings of settlement about 800 years ago up to 1840. It uses parallel and often corrobative versions drawn from Maori oral traditions and Land Court records, and from the work of archaeologists and pre-historians.

In Logan Campbell's Auckland, Russell Stone, the doyen of Auckland historians and author of the awardwinning From Tamaki-makau-rau to Auckland, recounts 15 tales from his encyclopaedic knowledge of nineteenth-century Auckland. They include the stories of the tree on One Tree Hill, of a newspaper printed on a mangle, of two aborted duels, the mystery of a suicide, of the voyage of an early immigrant ship, of the wreck of the Orpheus, of how Ngati Whatua became the tangata whenua of the area, and more. Logan Campbell's Auckland not only entertains but also gives a real sense of how Auckland changed during those crucial early years. Stone strikes the right balance between story telling and historical insight and provides easy navigation for the modern day general reader by relating present day incidents to the past - for example, Mike Smith's attack on the One Tree - or past incidents to their present day locations - topically, How Rugby came ashore and found its way to Eden Park. In his characteristically elegant style Stone brings personalities, feuds and dramas brilliantly to life. This handsome book is vividly illustrated in black and white and colour.

'Unlike in Europe, North America, Australia and elsewhere, urban history has never been sustained as a distinct field of scholarship in New Zealand. This is surprising, considering that since the early twentieth century most New Zealanders have lived in towns and cities – 86 per cent were urban in 2014. Yet we know surprisingly little about these urban dwellers and the spaces in which they lived.' The pursuit of city life is one of the most important untold stories of New Zealand. The Big Smoke is the first comprehensive history to tell this story, presenting a dynamic and highly illustrated account of city life from 1840 to 1920. It explores such questions as: what did cities look like and how did they change; why were women especially drawn to live in cities; in what ways did Māori experience and shape cities; how far was the street a living room and stage for city life; and why did New Zealand so quickly become a nation of townspeople? At a time of national debate over housing and the growth of our cities, Ben Schrader’s superb new history reveals how our urban origins have shaped the people we are today.

Für die 3. Auflage des DuMont Reise-Handbuches war Autor Hans Klüche wieder wochenlang in Neuseeland unterwegs. Er nahm das in den letzten Jahren massiv zum Livestyle-Viertel aufgefrischte Wynyard Quarter am Hafen von Auckland in Augenschein und zuckelte auf der Suche nach traditionellem Kiwi-Spirit mit einem umgerüsteten Golfwägelchen der ›Forgotten World Adventures‹ über eine stillgelegte Eisenbahnstrecke durch ein ganz authentisches Backcountry-Neuseeland – eine der vielen jüngst geschaffenen Attraktionen. Beim Besuch Dutzender neuer Übernachtungsstätten bestätigte sich ihm der Trend, dass viele Backpacker-Unterkünfte mit Stil und Komfort immer mehr Reisende der Generation 40 plus ansprechen: Low-Budget trifft Livestyle. Großartige Natur, multiethnische Kultur und vielfältige Reiseoptionen vom Wellness-Urlaub über Extrem-Bergsteigen locken nach Neuseeland. Von der hippen Kultur- und Einkaufsstadt Wellington bis zur einsamen Insel Stewart Island, von endlos langen Badestränden auf der Nordinsel bis zu tief eingeschnittenen Fjorden auf der Südinsel werden sehenswerten Regionen und Städte beschrieben. Zum Start in jedes Kapitel präsentiert eine Doppelseite Highlights, schönste Routen, aktive Naturerlebnisse und Tipps des Autors. Ort für Ort hat Hans Klüche besondere Unterkünfte, Restaurants oder Einkaufsadressen zusammengestellt, die mit Hilfe von Cityplänen leicht zu finden sind. Wanderungen erschließen die schönsten Landschaften wie die Vulkanwelt des Tongariro National Park oder die Gletscherwelt im Westen der Südinsel, wo Regenwälder auf Gletscher treffen. Viel Wissenswertes über Neuseeland, über die Geschichte und Gegenwart oder den Alltag der Menschen, lässt sich in der einführenden Landeskunde wie in den eingestreuten Themenseiten nachlesen. Für eine rasche Orientierung sorgen die detaillierte Extra-Reisekarte im Maßstab 1:1.500.000, eine Übersichtskarte mit den Highlights sowie 27 Citypläne, Wander- und Routenkarten.
