Item Open AccessProsecuting intimate partner rape: the impact of misconceptions on complainant experience and trial process(Canterbury University Press, 2023) McDonald, ElisabethThis is the final of three publications which describe what can be observed when the door to the courtroom is metaphorically opened to researchers during adult rape trials. As a result of privileged access to case files, the transcripts and audio of complainant evidence in 71 trials in total over a 10-year period (2010–2020) have been examined. This third book examines the experience of complainants in 15 intimate partner rape jury trials, as compared to complainant experience in 30 adult rape jury trials (in which the complainant and defendant were not in an intimate relationship). The book also contains commentary on complainant experience in intimate partner rape cases heard by a judge sitting alone, as compared to jury trials and as contrasted with the experience of adult rape complainants in judge-alone trials. The majority of the analysis of the adult rape jury trials has previously been published in "Rape Myths as Barriers to Fair Trial Process: Comparing adult rape trials with those in the Aotearoa Sexual Violence Court Pilot" (Canterbury University Press, Christchurch, 2020). Previous commentary on the adult judge-alone adult rape trials was published as "In the Absence of a Jury: Examining judge-alone rape trials" (Canterbury University Press, Christchurch, 2022).

Grateful acknowledgement is made to Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga for its provision of a Publications Support Grant, which enabled this book to be produced as an open access digital resource. Item Open AccessIn the absence of a jury: examining judge-alone rape trials(2022) McDonald, ElisabethThis book is the second of three publications which describe what can be observed when the door to the courtroom is metaphorically opened to researchers during adult rape trials. Through the privilege of being granted access to case files, the transcripts and audio of complainant evidence in more than 70 trials over a 10-year period have been examined. This second book focusses on the experience of complainants in eight judge-alone trials, as compared to 30 jury trials in the first book. The majority of the analysis of the adult rape jury trials has previously been published in "Rape Myths as Barriers to Fair Trial Process: Comparing adult rape trials with those in the Aotearoa Sexual Violence Court Pilot" (Canterbury University Press, Christchurch, 2020). Forthcoming work in 2023, funded by the Michael and Suzanne Borrin Foundation, will analyse 15 jury trials and seven judge-alone trials in order to document the experiences of adult complainants who allege they were raped by their intimate partner. Item Open AccessRape Myths as Barriers to Fair Trial Process: Comparing adult rape trials with those in the Aotearoa Sexual Violence Court Pilot(Canterbury University Press, 2020) McDonald, Elisabeth Item Open AccessNgā kōrero a Pita Kāpiti(Canterbury University Press, 1997) Kāpiti, Pita; Reedy, AnaruIn the late nineteenth century, the leading tohunga Pita Kāpiti, at Waiapu on the East Coast, dictated an account of the rituals surrounding the cultivation of kūmara and hue (gourds) and the hunting of kiore (rats), kererū (pigeons) and kākā. He also recorded many karakia and accounts of ritual and tradition, particularly those relating to the ancestors of Ngāti Porou. This first publication of Pita Kāpiti's teachings includes the Māori text in full, an English translation, an introduction and extensive annotations. Item Open AccessNgā kōrero a Mohi Ruatapu : tohunga rongonui o Ngāti Porou(Canterbury University Press, 1993) Ruatapu, Mohi; Reedy, AnaruThis landmark publication comprises two manuscripts written in the 1870s by one of the greatest tohunga of Ngāti Porou. Mohi Ruatapu, of Tokomaru Bay, was one of the teachers at the last Whare Wānanga (School of Learning) on the East Coast, north of Tūranga (Gisborne district). Much later, as an old man, he recorded the myths, legends and songs of his people. Mohi Ruatapu’s writings are regarded as the most important single body of writing on myth produced by any nineteenth-century Māori writer. Hitherto, only a few short extracts have been published. This new work includes the Māori text in full with an introduction, English translation and annotations.
