Having just turned 80, Alistair Te Ariki Campbell presents the best of his early and middle period poems, as well as his latest collections, Gallipoli and other Poems, Maori Battalion and an autobiographical poem in letters, Poets in Our Youth. Few New Zealand poets have treated the natural world with greater sensitivity, while his personal lyrics and love poems have a music and a depth of feeling that set them apart. Campbell is in the enviable position of being both a New Zealand and a Cook Islands poet, enabling him to draw on imagery, folklore, history, and mythology from both sources, with powerful effect. By happy chance he was appointed Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM) while this book was in production. And it is cause for celebration that in his eightieth year this is his best collection. Alistair Te Ariki Campbell was born in Rarotonga in 1925. He taught briefly before becoming an editor in the Department of Education and later senior editor at NZCER. He was president of PEN International (NZ Centre), 1977-79 and was presenter of three TV documentaries based on his poems. Campbell has received many honours, including the NZ Award for Poetry, 1983, the Pacific Islands Artist Award and a D. Litt (Hon) by Victoria University of Wellington.

Nuclear New Zealand: Sorting Fact from Fiction

Is New Zealand nuclear frees Has it ever beene These questions are discussed by the former head of the New Zealand National Radiation Laboratory, Dr Andrew McEwan, in this hard-hitting new book based on a lifetimes involvement in health physics and nuclear research. Natural sources of radiation are all around us, and our health system depends on radioactive materials made in other countries nuclear reactors, for both diagnostic tests and the treatment of cancers. As well as this double standard he points out all kinds of misunderstandings about nuclear power and waste disposal, the bomb tests, nuclear-powered ships, electricity generation, food irradiation, radiation from natural sources, and other radiations. Ĺ“This book represents an important milestone. Dr Andrew McEwan, who led the National Radiation Laboratory for many years, has not only been at the centre of every scientific study of New Zealand nuclear issues over the past three decades, but is by far the best informed New Zealand scientist on the world history of radioactivity and nuclear radiation. He is a fearless presenter of fact. This book will help you look beyond the myths and understand the scientific perspective related to nuclear testing, radiation and the safety of the nuclear industry. The book is encyclopedic in its depth of information and insight.* (From the foreword by Paul Callaghan, Alan MacDiarmid Professor of Physical Sciences.) Nuclear New Zealand is essential reading for anyone prepared to have their preconceived views challenged. Dr Andrew McEwan had an almost 40-year association with the National Radiation Laboratory from his appointment as a scientist with a first-class honours degree in physics in November 1963, until 2002. He was Director of the Laboratory for 13 years and a member of the Radiation Protection Advisory Council for 18 years. He has an international reputation in radiation protection and dosimetry and has been involved in studies at several nuclear weapons test sites. He is a member of a standing committee of the International Commission on Radiological Protection, which sets international standards for radiation protection, a Fellow of the Australasian Radiation Protection Society, serving as Society President from 2000 to 2002, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand.
