    Since colonisation, New Zealand has been mythologised as a ?land of milk and honey?? a promised land of natural abundance and endless opportunity.

    The EU has been portrayed as a leader in international climate change negotiations.

  • Thinking on Housingby Peter King

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 70.00

    If we do stop to think on housing, what do we see? What is housing and what does it do? These seem deceptively simple questions, but they are often left unanswered. The reason for this is that a lot of discourse on housing is really a concern for policy-making and the critical evaluation of existing policies. Discourse, is not, properly speaking,... more...
