Why care about the past? Why teach, research and write history? In this volume, leading and emerging scholars, activists and those working in the public sector, archives and museums bring their expertise to provide timely direction and informed debate about the importance of history.Primarily concerned with Aotearoa (the Maori name for New Zealand), the essays within traverse local, national and global knowledge to offer new approaches that consider the ability and potential for history to `make a difference' in the early twenty-first century. Authors adopt a wide range of methodological approaches, including social, cultural, Maori, oral, race relations, religious, public, political, economic, visual and material history. The chapters engage with work in postcolonial and cultural studies.The volume is divided into three sections that address the themes of challenging power and privilege, the co-production of historical knowledge and public and material histories. Collectively, the potential for dialogue across previous sub-disciplinary and public, private and professional divides is pursued. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

Indians now constitute a significant ethnic minority in Australia and New Zealand. According to the most recent census figures, they number slightly more than half a million, but represent a successful ethnic community making significant contributions to their host societies and economies. The histories of their migration go back to the early colonial period, but rarely do they find any space in the global literature on Indian diaspora, probably because of their small numbers. This book covers their history over the past two and half centuries, covering both the 'old' and the 'new' diaspora; the first group consisting of the labourers who migrated under pressure of colonial capital, and the second group representing the post-war professional migrants. But this book is not just about the diaspora, it also looks closely at the host societies which over this period have been receiving and interacting with these migrants. And it looks at a few Antipodeans too, who were going to India in the early twentieth century and making contributions in terms of ideas and service. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
