At the beginning of 1990, the Berlin Wall had just fallen, few believed that there was any serious threat to the environment, 9/11 was just any date, the Pacific was seen largely as an idyllic and stable region and Iraq was just another Middle Eastern state. By 2005 Iraq meant two wars ; the ‘Cold War’ had been replaced by the ‘war on terror’; East Timor, Bougainville, Fiji and the Solomons were all synonyms for strife and instability in the region ; and sustainability, global warming and climate change were everyday topics. New Zealand in World Affairs IV surveys the period 19902005, provides a record of New Zealand’s major international preoccupations, describes how they were officially handled and makes assessments of how effectively the challenges were interpreted and acted upon. This authoritative collection of essays, the fourth in a series commissioned by the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs, completes a survey of New Zealand’s foreign relations since World War II.

Fifteen writers with diverse personal and scholarly backgrounds come together in this collection to examine issues of identity, viewing it as both a departing point and end destination for the various peoples who have come to call New Zealand "home." The essays reflect the diversity of thinking about identity across the social sciences as well as common themes that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Their explorations of the process of identity-making underscore the historical roots, dynamism, and plurality of ideas of national identity in New Zealand, offering a view not only of what has been but also what might be on the horizon.

This work has been written by a practitioner for the benefit of practitioners.The two introductory chapters deal with broad general principles and conceptual issues such as what is a caveat? and what is a caveatable interest? but the bulk of the book is taken up by an encyclopaedic analysis of all of the reported Australian and New Zealand cases touching upon caveats. Essentially this book is intended to function as a road map for practitioners to the reported cases, guiding them to cases involving similar facts, and breaking the issues up in a way that matches the practical problems with which they must deal.Chapters which follow on from the general introductory chapters:list all the recognised categories of situations where there is a caveatable interestdeal with defects in the drafting of caveatsdescribe the procedures available to a registered proprietor or other interested person for freeing the title from the caveatanalyse the criteria for a successful action for compensation for wrongful lodgement of a caveatexplain the role of caveats in determining equitable prioritiesThere is also a brief chapter dealing with the assessment of stamp duty on caveats.
