New Zealand Travel
An ethnography of the development and travel of the New Zealand model of neoliberal welfare reform, this study explores the social life of policy, which is one of process, motion, and change. Different actors, including not only policy elites but also providers and recipients, engage with it in light of their own resources and knowledge. Drawing on two analytic frameworks of the contemporary anthropology of policy-translation and assemblage-Kingfisher situates policy as an artifact and architect of cultural meaning, as well as a site of power struggles. All points of engagement with policy are approached as sites of policy production that serve to transform it as well as reproduce it. As such, A Policy Travelogue provides an antidote to theorizations of policy as a-cultural, rational, and straightforwardly technical. Catherine Kingfisher is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Lethbridge. She is editor of Western Welfare in Decline: Globalization and Women's Poverty (2002) and author of Women in the American Welfare Trap (1996). Her research focuses on policy, governance, personhood, gender, and, most recently, happiness and well-being.
Tracing the main developments in New Zealand painting from colonial times to the present, this reference divides the paintings thematically rather than chronologically. The paintings cover the colonial landscape from 1840 to 1870, the later Victorian landscape from 1870 to 1890, images of the Maori from 1840 to 1914, and art in the 1890s. Information on the expatriates, regionalism and realism, modernism, neo-expressionism, later abstraction, and postmodernism is included. This fully revised edition includes a new chapter on Maori and Polynesian contemporary painting, as well as coverage of many new artists in both the historical and the contemporary sections.
