This is an auction for UNREASONABLE FORCE: NEW ZEALAND'S JOURNEY TOWARDS BANNING THE PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT OF CHILDREN by Beth Wood, Ian Hassall and George Hook, with Robert Ludbrook.

"On 16th May in a historic accord, politicians from nearly all parties voted overwhelmingly to pass the Crimes (Substituted Section 59) Amendment Act and ban physical punishment of children in New Zealand. The book UNREASONABLE FORCE: NEW ZEALAND'S JOURNEY TOWARDS BANNING THE PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT OF CHILDREN traces New Zealand's journey to this historic decision. It explores key aspects of the debate about physical punishment that look place for over a decade and intensively during the bill's passage through Parliament in 2006 and 2007. These include factors contributing to a climate in which change was possible, children's rights, the law, the impact of religious convictions, the media's role, the work of advocates, shifting public attitudes, the political story and the way forward. This very readable publication has been sponsored by Save the Children New Zealand and written by Beth Wood, Ian Hassall and George Hook with contributions from Robert Ludbrook. It will be of interest to the public, politicians, child advocates, academics and those invested in reducing violence in our families."
