Past Caring? Women, work and emotion

ISBN: 9781988531342

Are women past caring? Care is essential to social relationships and individual well-being.

Kalimpong Kids: The New Zealand story, in pictures

ISBN: 9781988592367

In the early 20th century, 130 young Anglo-Indians were sent to New Zealand in an organised migration scheme from Kalimpong, in the Darjeeling district of India. They were the mixed-race children of British tea planters and local women, and were placed as workers with New Zealand families from the Far North to Southland. Jane McCabe here tells this compelling and little-known New Zealand story, in pictures.
