Renowned broadcaster and journalist Gordon McLauchlan strips back layers of well meaning sentimentality and myth from the story of New Zealand in 'A Short History of New Zealand'.
This lively and entertaining account spans from pre-European times to the present day.
The text is accompanied by illustrations, photographs, maps and timelines, giving the reader a glimpse of the houses people lived in, the food they ate, the clothes they wore, the schools they attended, religions they followed and how they were entertained.
Written to appeal to all New Zealanders who want easy access to their history, this book will also appeal to tourists and students.
