100 New Zealand Poems, Bill Manhire (ed)
6 Bill Manhire (ed) 100 New Zealand Poems
Auckland Godwit 1994 Softcover Very Good None issued 23.5cm 
Just a slight bump to upper right corner o/wise it's a beaut - unpaginated but say 150 with notes at end. 100 New Zealand Poems is a journey through the hearts and histories and landscapes of New Zealand - from the country's earliest poems to work by new poets of the 1990s.100 New Zealand Poems is an ideal source book for students of New Zealand literature of all ages but will also be a delightful read for anyone with more than a passing interest in poetry. The poems have been chosen by Bill Manhire, who also contributes an introduction and notes on each of the 100 selections. nice review here >> Bill Manhire has done a standout job of selecting and grouping 100 New Zealand poems by 100 New Zealand poets. I'd say about 60 to 70% of them resonated with me, which is a stellar strike-rate for poems. No doubt the challenging and worthy have been omitted to make this collection accessible. It worked.

The Shield of Achilles: War, Peace and the Course of History, Bobbitt, Philip
8 Bobbitt, Philip The Shield of Achilles: War, Peace and the Course of History
UK Allen Lane 2002 1st Hardcover Excellent Good 24 Cm 
approx 1.5kg packed for post, 922 clean white well bound pp, minor wear to corners & leading edge of dj, This ambitious book sets out to reinterpret the history of the twentieth century as a long war in which conditions of outright military confrontation or of frantic "cold" competition lasted from the outbreak of the first world war until the collapseof the Soviet Union. He goes on to argue that this long experience of war has brought about a fundamental change in the constitutional basis of sates, and explores this idea through the notion of the "market state". By clarifying the relationship between constitutional settlements and military power, and by drawing on his firsthand experience in the heart of superpower planning, Bobbitt reveals a startling new way of understanding the past - and an awesome glimpse of the future. review >>> Breathtaking scope handled with confidence and clarity. Ambitious, erudite, persuasive. A tour de force historical narrative of state hegemonics. But with an agenda. and >>> That Bobbitt writes elegantly and synthesizes everything from poetry to policy to warfare to theory so beautifully makes the experience all the more rewarding and compelling.

13 Dowrick, Stephanie In the Company of Rilke: Why a 20th-Century Visionary Poet Speaks So Eloquently to 21st-Century Readers
Allen & Unwin 2006 Paperback Excellent None issued 23.5cm Inscription and Signature of Author
In the Company of Rilke is a rare book about a rare poet. Rainer Maria Rilke was a giant of twentieth-century writing who remains a visionary voice for our own time, captivating readers not only with his brilliance but also his fearlessness about the "deepest things." Speaking through his own contradictions and ambivalences, he gives readers a profound understanding of the complex beauty of human existence. review >>> I have not had much experience of poetry, but am finding Stephanie's commentary and elucidations have great clarity. I guess you would have to describe this book as deeply spiritual but you may be amazed at how much you appreciate and agree with.

Very Good condition. "Verse is more than pleasant, jingling rhyme. It can document history, heroics and current events, tell stories, comment on social issues and satirise. At best it can be a subtle and satisfying form of literature, but its primary purpose is entertainment- for reading, writing, performing and listening..a portrait of Australia during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries."
