The turquoise mosaics explored in this book are some of the most striking objects from the Museum's Ethnographic collection. Originating from the Aztec civilisation and first encountered by Europeans during the Spanish conquest of 1519, these objects are more than simply things of beauty. Among them are masks, shields, helmets and knives, each with particular uses during ritual and performance. Recent scientific investigation has identified the materials that comprise the mosaics, the technical skills required by those who made them and even the places where the turquoise was mined. The book explains the techniques used by the scientists and combines this new information with fascinating historical sources noting, for example, the response to the mosaics in the court of Charles V. Overall, the book will give an up-to-date introduction to these mysterious objects. 96pp.

Edited By Gokal,R.,Khanna,R.,Krediet,R.Th. And Nolph,K.D.
In 1994, the expert knowledge of Ram Gokal and Karl D. Nolph, the two foremost figures in the field of peritoneal dialysis, was combined to produce the first edition of the Textbook of Peritoneal Dialysis. Since its conception, however, our understanding of peritoneal dialysis related physiology, kinetics and clinical outcomes, as well as the concepts of intraperitoneal chemotherapy, has increased sufficiently to make an updated and completely revised edition of the work necessary. An expansion of the editorial team by fellow-experts Ramesh Khanna and Raymond Krediet enabled an even more comprehensive approach to be taken. 862pp.

Paterson, Lachy
This book illuminates the whole colonial discourse between Maori and Pakeha as it appeared in the Maori-language newspapers during a critical period in New Zealand history. In 1855, the Maori world was changing. Many Maori took part in the market economy, most had become Christian, many could read and write, some had sold land to the settler government. The government expected these trends to continue. Ultimately, Maori and European would become the iwi kotahi - one people. The government disseminated this message to Maori in its newspaper "Te Karere Maori". There were other newspapers, most importantly the rival Maori government the Kingitanga's "Te Hokioi". And while these newspapers were used for propaganda, they provided a forum, with many Maori and some Pakeha debating the issues of the day.252pp.
