‘Rape Myths as Barriers to Fair Trial Process’ opens the courtroom door on rape trials to investigate how and why they re-traumatise complainants. Despite decades of targeted law reform, adult complainants still report that the process of being a witness is a significant point of re-victimisation. This book contains the findings of four years of research that compares the trial process in 30 adult rape cases from 2010 to 2015 (in which the defence at trial was consent) with 10 cases from the Sexual Violence Court Pilot heard in 2018. The aim of the research was to find out at which points in the questioning process the complainant displayed heightened emotionality, including distress, and why cross-examination (in particular) is so resistant to reform measures. Researchers also considered the extent to which the current rules of evidence and procedure are applied appropriately and consistently, and identified examples of best practice in order to develop proposals for changes to law and process. Elisabeth McDonald is a Professor of Law at the University of Canterbury. She has taught and published in the areas of sexual and family violence, law and sexuality, criminal law and the law of evidence for 30 years, as an academic and as the Policy Manager for the evidence law reference at the New Zealand Law Commission. Elisabeth is the author of a number of evidence law textbooks and online legal resources, as well as co-editor of ‘From “Real Rape” to Real Justice’ (2011) and ‘Feminist Judgments Aotearoa: Te Rino, the Two-Stranded Rope’ (2017). In June 2018, she became a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for Services to Law and Education.

Join the celebration of the diverse, vibrant, and engaged community of women riding and making waves around the globe.

She Surf hails the females, past and present, who are engaged in expanding the art of surfing. Through exclusive interviews and evocative imagery, the book travels from the iconic waves of Hawaii to remote locations in Morocco.

This book is an exciting reflection on what it means to be a female surfer and what it means to be moved to action by the beauty of the sea.

Today, weed is en vogue and has evolved into a good-looking business. High on Design showcases the new brands, designs and creators behind this revolution. While cannabis is a recreational drug still strongly associated with Western subculture, it has recently become a huge industry. Over the past few years, consuming the herb and using its derivatives have become legal in several countries, and a wave of entrepreneurs has come through, looking to generate and bank on a new generation of consumers. Through insightful texts, High on Design reflects on the novel aesthetics, people, and trends of contemporary cannabis culture, and provides a wider view of the phenomenon. Addiction, crime, science, the marketing of weed as a booster of creativity and a medical aid, and the use of hemp in clothing are all considered.
