Dive into some of the big issues facing New Zealand with this bundle of hard-hitting BWB Texts.

These four works are combined into one easy-to-read e-book, available direct and DRM-free from our website or from international e-book retailers.

Tracey Barnett’s The Quiet War on Asylum addresses a big question: Why would New Zealand, a country that has never had a boatload of asylum arrivals in modern history, suddenly legislate for mass detention?

Jane Kelsey looks hard at the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement and the impact it may have on New Zealand if enacted.

The penetrating discussion of the dramatic transformation in penal thought in New Zealand, and the lasting damage it has caused, is revealed in John Pratt’s A Punitive Society.

Robert Wade’s tour of New Zealand in 2013 caused headlines and Inequality and the West places the local inequality debate against a global backdrop.

BWB Texts are short books on big subjects by great New Zealand writers. Commissioned as short digital-first works, BWB Texts unlock diverse stories, insights and analysis from the best of our past, present and future New Zealand writing.
