Our Stories

The Way We Used To Be: The New Zealand That Time Forgot

FROM THE BACK COVER:

 

Every day, thousands of news stories are published in New Zealand, chronicling the big events and the small. Most of these stories are long forgotten by the time historians get around to compiling the ‘official’ record of our country.

 

In Our Stories, author and journalist Ian Wishart brings out the most fascinating forgotten tales of our past, told through the eyes of the people who were there.

 

Read about the tsunamis that washed away the homes and lives of our early European immigrants, or the earthquakes that toppled Christchurch buildings more than a century ago and lifted Wellington out of the sea.

 

Read the real story about the search for gold, or the visiting circuses whose lions and leopards escaped, or the dinosaur found on a Taranaki riverbank.

 

Discover the heroes and villains of our past through long forgotten news stories, and find out how life really was in pioneer New Zealand.

 

These, and many more, are our stories...

Never before in human history have governments had the power to totally control your life. Today, they do. That sort of power does strange things to human ambition. Even with the best of intentions, Lord Acton famously noted, absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely.

Hard-won freedoms are being chiselled away every day, as a global bureaucracy springs up in partnership with global businesses, globally-focused politicians and global lobby groups, to impose a new global system of rules and expectations.

New technology has not only made the globe a village, it's made governing that village a piece of cake in comparison with earlier civilisations.

From population control to gun control, food regulations to clampdowns on natural health, Agenda 21 to climate change, mercury-filled lightbulbs to the Green Police, global treaties signed behind closed doors at the behest of unelected bureaucrats are rapidly locking in changes and a framework for the bureaucracy to take global control.

In Totalitaria, bestselling author and investigative journalist Ian Wishart exposes a high stakes strategy of divide and rule, of 'manufactured' crises and instant solutions. He lays bare, in their own words, a cynical agenda to create a world where those with power and influence do well. It doesn't matter whether you call it capitalism with a social conscience, or socialism with a market face - to all intents and purposes its an iron fist in an ever so velvet glove.

This is not, he writes, a battle between Left and Right. It's a battle between Citizens and the State....

The 100 Days

Amy Brooke's epic analysis

The explosive new book on what's gone wrong with NZ's democratic system and how we can fix it to bring politicians back under the control of the public...

 

“Reform (of our institutions, laws, regulations, politics) must come from outside the realm of public institutions. It must come from the associations of civil society. It must come from us, the citizens.”

– Niall Ferguson, BBC Reith Lecture No 2, 2012, The Rule of Law and Its Enemies

“Politicians…I have come to the conclusion that the only way to control them is through your proposal”.

– Emeritus Professor David Flint, http://www.davidflint.com.au

“That Amy’s book will be attacked by the ‘progressives’ will only endorse how adrift they are. The hope is that New Zealanders may find this book as a compass in a storm. “

– Leighton Smith, Talk-back radio host, NewstalkZB

“As always, the quality of writing is superb, the power of the arguments is compelling, the research behind the debate is impressive…The book draws from a wide and eclectic range of sources and displays deep understanding of a number of pertinent issues. It’s a high-quality piece of work and a joy to read…I find myself saying ‘Absolutely! Hear! Hear!’ to the great bulk of your analysis – particularly in relation to education and Maori matters. Agree or disagree, because of the concerns it raises and the information it contains, this book should be compulsory reading for all New Zealanders in public office. I really do congratulate you on a magnificent effort.

– Greg Newbold, Professor, School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Canterbury

BREAKING SILENCE: THE KAHUI CASE

THE CORONER AGREES WITH THIS BOOK!

CLICK TO READ AN EXTRACT HERE

"Well she would say that, wouldn't she!" - that was the dismissive response of radio talk jocks Mike Hosking and Michael Laws to the discovery that Breaking Silence identifies Chris Kahui as the likely killer of Macsyna King's twins.

Now it turns out the Coroner Garry Evans apparently agrees with the book. Chris Kahui's lawyers are trying to get the Coroner's report watered down before it is released, because it reportedly lays blame for the twins deaths with Chris Kahui, not Macsyna King.

With the Coroner's verdict now withheld pending legal action in February, Breaking Silence remains the only place you can read Chris Kahui's testimony in his own words, and weigh up the evidence in this controversial case for yourself.

REVIEWS

"Ian Wishart's book on Macsyna King was banned by some bookshops. It turns out from experts in the child abuse field that the book has real value. It was wrong to ban it. Bookshops got swayed by hysteria." - Larry Williams, Newstalk ZB

"I found it an incredibly surprising book, and a very relevant book, and a very important book." - Anna Smart, Newstalk ZB

"I had no particular views on the case before this book came out but I have to say it's a powerful read. An influential read, one might say...All those people who poured out their invective when it became known the book was about to hit the bookshops really should just read it for themselves.  It may not be quite what they think". - Marlborough Express

"Breaking Silence is a chilling narrative and the most important I have read. Adults may need to read the story to gain any understanding. Younger people should read in it a warning: that it is the way we make decisions early on that may determine the course of our life and those lives entrusted to our care." - Southland Times

"The book so many maligned before it came out reveals a mother we haven't met. When I last wrote about Macsyna King, I said I didn't think I'd like her. I've changed my mind. I certainly think she outclasses the Wellington radio announcer [Polly Gillespie] who posted on Facebook that after receiving her advance copy of "Breaking Silence", she had "spat on it, wiped my ass on it, and ripped it up". - Tapu Misa, NZ Herald

"Actually, the rumours of Wishart's death as an investigative journalist turn out to be greatly exaggerated.  Breaking Silence will likely enhance his reputation considerably.  As we said at the outset--we are very, very glad to have read the book." - John Tertullian, Contra Celsum

" I have finished the book. First and foremost I send my sincerest apologies to Macsyna, although I never personally attacked you I was part of a group who did. Secondly Ian Wishart, I apologise to you - without you, this story could not have been told in the way that it has, honestly and completely. Macsyna is... not a perfect mother, neither am I or any other mother for that fact.....we do the best we can with the tools we have. I found Macsyna to be a likeable chick, who like us all has made mistakes but she is not the guilty party here by any stretch default or otherwise. To the people still boycotting.....you have got this so terribly wrong, I accept personal choice etc however this story needs to be out there....simple as that" - Bev Gibson, ex-boycotter

Bestselling author and investigative journalist Ian Wishart turns his guns on the global warming industry. Who's telling the truth, who's telling porkies? How much will paying for global warming cost ordinary people?

This is the most up-to-date account of current knowledge about global warming.

300 pages, more than 400 footnoted references to the latest scientific data on climate change...this will be the most controversial climate book of the year in this country.
As one scientist has already said after reading the book:
“I started reading this book with an intensely critical eye, expecting that a mere journalist could not possibly cope with the complexities of climate science … [But] The book is brilliant. The best I have seen which deals with the news item side of it as well as the science. He has done a very thorough job and I have no hesitation in unreserved commendation. It has come along at the time we most need it and I hope it is published and publicized widely.” - Dr Vincent Gray, UNIPCC expert reviewer

Heaven And Earth by Ian Plimer

The worldwide climate bestseller

ISBN 9780 958240154

Review in Sydney Morning Herald:
By Paul Sheehan

What I am about to write questions much of what I have written in this space, in numerous columns, over the past five years. Perhaps what I have written can withstand this questioning. Perhaps not. The greater question is, am I - and you - capable of questioning our own orthodoxies and intellectual habits? Let's see.

The subject of this column is not small. It is a book entitled Heaven And Earth, which will be published tomorrow. It has been written by one of Australia's foremost Earth scientists, Professor Ian Plimer. He is a confronting sort of individual, polite but gruff, courteous but combative. He can write extremely well, and Heaven And Earth is a brilliantly argued book by someone not intimidated by hostile majorities or intellectual fashions.

The book's 500 pages and 230,000 words and 2311 footnotes are the product of 40 years' research and a depth and breadth of scholarship. As Plimer writes: "An understanding of climate requires an amalgamation of astronomy, solar physics, geology, geochronology, geochemistry, sedimentology, tectonics, palaeontology, palaeoecology, glaciology, climatology, meteorology, oceanography, ecology, archaeology and history."

The most important point to remember about Plimer is that he is Australia's most eminent geologist. As such, he thinks about time very differently from most of us. He takes the long, long view. He looks at climate over geological, archaeological, historical and modern time. He writes: "Past climate changes, sea-level changes and catastrophes are written in stone."

Much of what we have read about climate change, he argues, is rubbish, especially the computer modelling on which much current scientific opinion is based, which he describes as "primitive". Errors and distortions in computer modelling will be exposed in time. (As if on cue, the United Nations' peak scientific body on climate change was obliged to make an embarrassing admission last week that some of its computers models were wrong.)...

Arthur Allan Thomas: The Inside Story

SPECIAL DIRECT PRICE, & FREE SHIPPING TO AUSTRALIA, 24 HOURS ONLY
Arthur Allan Thomas breaks his silence, the national bestseller

Wrongly convicted of double murder in New Zealand's most baffling homicide inquiry, Arthur Allan Thomas spent nine years in prison before his convictions were finally quashed.

Now, he's decided to finally reveal the full details of what happened to him inside, and outside, of jail.

PLUS:

A NEW WITNESS COMES FORWARD: "Dear Ian, I have had information since 1970 that I have been far too frightened to release. I made an effort to inform the Police in 1970 and spoke to a Sergeant Johnston ... he told me that if I ever rang the Police with that information again or made any attempt to have it made known then I would be the next bastard found in the river"

AWARD-WINNING INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST IAN WISHART HUNTS DOWN SIGNIFICANT NEW LEADS, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, ARTHUR ALLAN THOMAS DESCRIBES HIS ARREST, HIS YEARS BEHIND BARS AND HIS LIFE SINCE HIS RELEASE - AN INCREDIBLE, NEVER-BEFORE-TOLD STORY...

FIRST REVIEW:Whether you concur with Wishart or not, you need to read this book.

Arthur Allan Thomas:  The Inside Story by Ian Wishart.

Bestselling author Ian Wishart tackles one of the biggest conundrums in New Zealand’s criminal history - who killed Jeannette and Harvey Crewe? 

A lot of people - including Arthur Thomas himself - believed Len Demler, Jeannette’s father, was the murderer because he’d been cut out of his wife’s will. 

Journalists and authors have perpetuated this theory over the years but now Wishart has a  brand new prime suspect and he lays out his case in this fascinating and highly readable book. 

Wishart is painstaking in his investigation, and his interviews with the man at the centre of the case, Arthur Thomas, offer a remarkable insight into one of New Zealand‘s most memorable characters. 

 Whether you concur with Wishart or not, you need to read this book. 

Highly recommended. - Newstalk ZB

ABSOLUTE POWER: The Helen Clark Years

The Most Explosive Political Biography Ever Released in New Zealand...IS HERE

READ A PREVIEW EXTRACT

 

This election year, Absolute Power is one book you simply can’t afford to miss. Be among the first to know…

FROM THE BACK COVER:
What you are about to read will go further than anyone has gone before – digging up a Prime Minister you didn’t even know existed.

The Helen Clark we see today is a carefully manufactured, airbrushed political brand. She’s also New Zealand’s most powerful politician, ever. Absolute Power strips away the façade to find what makes the real Helen Clark tick, and explores the track record of a government that boasted it would bring a new age of “frugality and integrity”, and an end to “cronyism, sleaze and dishonesty”.

Absolute Power is not just about what happened publicly and what played out on the news each night. It is much more about what was going on behind the scenes – the power plays, the dirty tricks, the Machiavellian maneuvers. The bits the daily media missed.

Lord Acton once wrote that absolute power corrupts absolutely, and that the great “are almost always bad”. Is Helen Clark the exception to that rule? Judge for yourself in this decade’s most controversial political book…

 

WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING:

"bestseller material...will enjoy it immensely" - Poneke blog

"his skills as an investigative journalist provide a fresh perspective, and a greater depth of information than what is possible in a magazine article" - Keeping Stock blog

"Wishart's evisceration of Clark's character is compelling, well researched and well referenced. One cannot help but ask "Where has the media been all these years?" – No Minister blog

"'Absolute Power' has been impressively researched and its subject superbly analysed. In my humble opinion it will endure as a standard reference on the Clark regime." - David Lee, Wellington

And from Sir Robert Jones, 13 May 2008:

"I picked up your new book 'Absolute Power' by chance last week. I say 'by chance' insofar as it will be interesting to see whether it's reviewed in the print media [for the record, it wasn't] mindful of the fact that books editors are an effete and snobbish lot and your book may be deemed insufficiently boring to justify mention.

"Anyway, first my congratulations. There was only a single hyperbolic fault, specifically your reference to our Police Force as the most corrupt in the southern hemisphere. Have a look at the map. When it comes to Zaire, Zimbabwe, Paraguay et al, and sadly, Chile and Australia, it is far and away the least corrupt.

"And one other criticism on reflection, while wearing my pedant's hat, and that is your references to animal porn films and videos. An animal porn film could be a rooster having it off with a chicken. You should have referred to bestiality films and videos.

"That said, I agree with your general thesis regarding this government's incredible corruption. It is Third World in its moral standards and dishonesty and leaves me despairing.

"I despair because your book will make no difference. The government will simply ignore it, and largely so will the news media.

"In another age, three decades back, or indeed another first world country today, such as the USA or Britain, your book would run to endless reprints and bring down the government.

"Consider Nixon's impeachment over a mere trifle to what you have outlined, or indeed the near-miss impeachment of Clinton over a petty sexual matter and allegations of a playing-with-words denial.

"At heart the problem lies in the depoliticisation of New Zealanders. Today they simply don't care, as borne out by the startling revelation that circa 50% of Maoris and Islanders are unaware that this is an election year. Yet most will turn out to vote, oblivious of the issues you raise or indeed any others. People simply don't read anymore, or at least not the majority under 40.

"Oh for a barn-storming moralist like Muldoon!

"I suppose there's one good thing from your efforts, namely that if ignored by the general public; you nevertheless keep the bastards at bay from even greater outrages; if that is the Electoral Finance Act and theft of public money in the past two elections can be surpassed.

"Once again, well done on a great accomplishment.

Best Wishes
