Worlds Apart : A History of the Pacific Islands 2nd Ed

The Pacific Islands remain for most people a region of obscurity or puzzlement. The attention of news media is attracted by atypical events such as political violence that contradict the peaceful tourist image of sun, sea and smiling faces. Journalists, travellers, business people and the general public have few paths to access specialised knowledge about the complex and changing 'neighbourhood' to New Zealand's north and Australia's northeast. Ian Campbell's History of the Pacific Islands, first published in 1989, served this purpose for many years, and its successor, Worlds Apart, has proved to be equally serviceable, bringing into focus the past and present of this diverse and endlessly misunderstood region. For the second edition this concise and readable narrative was revised to bring the story of the island world - from its first settlement by raft and canoe voyagers, through the period of western contact and acculturation - up to 2010. As with its earlier versions, this book was written not for fellow academics, but for the many people who want to know 'what happened'.

Upon its 1954 debut, the cuddly classic Beady Bear was praised by The New York Times as "the kind of book small children will delight in." Don Freeman, author of the acclaimed children's story Corduroy, recounts the whimsically illustrated tale of a wind-up toy who longs to live like a real bear. When Beady learns that bears are brave and live in caves, he resolves to give it a try ― and discovers that being real is actually about loving and being loved. This longtime favourite is presented for the first time with its previously unpublished sequel, Beady's Pillow, another heartwarming charmer only recently discovered by the author's son. Beady's friend Thayer sets out to retrieve a pillow that the adventurous bear has lost, and when Thayer disappears into a cave and doesn't come out, Beady has a chance to prove his bravery.
