University of Otago academic Dr Chris Brickell tells the evolving history of New Zealand gay men accessibly, through the lives of individual clerks, labourers, gardeners, soldiers, actors, writers; working class and middle class men; mostly urban but sometimes rural or small-town men. A landmark publication, this first-ever New Zealand gay male history combines lively, engaging scholarship with a remarkable collection of just under 300 images, spanning the book's period: 1830 to 1980.

Finally, but most importantly of all, I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to my partner, Jeffrey Vaughan. He has taken such good care of me over the last twelve years. He manages to keep me grounded mo0st of the time, yet he rarely complains when my mind wanders off into into the sometimes arcane world of academic research. I could not have written Mates & Lovers without Jeffrey's love and support, and I dedicate this book to him
First words

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Mia Montrose, archaeological linguist, has discovered that the Black Madonna is a code used by secret societies throughout time for the lost key to an ancient power source: the Sphere of Amenti. Kali, inter-dimensional Queen of the Anunnaki -now fully merged with the youngest Dragon Queen, Tamar Devere - has less than a year to rehabilitate her Fallen kindred who desire inter-galactic domination. Ashlee Granville-Devere, and the Dragon Queens must pool their talents to open the twelve Stations of the Signet Grid and unlock the Halls of Amenti lest the Fallen succeed in using time-travel technologies to destroy humanity. From the ancient past to the distant future, from Montsg ur to the way-stations of the universe, from the Underworld of the Kali Rift to the Otherworld of the Ranna Time Flow - the inter-time war must be won for the sake of the future."--Provided by publisher.… (more)
