Welcome to H-ANZAU, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. H-ANZAU encourages scholarly discussion of the history and culture of Aotearoa / New Zealand, Australia and Oceania. H-ANZAU's online editors and editorial board serve a broad intellectual community.
Below you will find a constantly updated list of newly published books in Australian and New Zealand Studies. The list includes books streaming from the H-Net Book Channel and new book announcements posted to H-ANZAU by subscribers. Next to books are all the announcements and discussions we encourage here.

H-ANZAU is planning to offer new resources for scholars, students and anyone else interested in the history and culture of Aotearoa/New Zealand, Australia, and Oceania in the near future.
As part of this, we would welcome your views on what you would like to see as part of this network, and are especially keen to hear from anyone willing to play an active role in developing new online materials and resources for the field.

New Books in ANZAU Studies
We are pleased to debut a new feature on H-ANZAU called "Take 5 with...", a series of short interviews with scholars in the field.
Please suggest names of scholars you’d like to see featured in the series by emailing email@example.com.
Dear H-ANZAU members,
We are pleased to announce these new and recent publications of potential interest to members:
Joanna Sassoon, Agents of Empire: How E.L. Mitchell's Photographs Shaped Australia (Australian Scholarly Press, 2017)
Bain Atwood, The Good Country: The Djadja Wurrung, the Settlers and the Protectors (Monash University Publishing, 2017)
Dear H-ANZAU members,
I love Conor's work but is there a problem with the way many writers in Aboriginal history elide the meaning and role of colonists by calling them settlers. Is the use of the simple word settler masking colonialism? The deliberate use of the soft word newcomer contrasts harshly with the word invasion and thus creates a confusing context. And context really is everything in history as it is the culture that informs the behaviours of historical agents.
