The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of New Zealand describes the many changes that have taken place during the past decade while building on the solid foundation of the first edition, which already traced New Zealand's long and lively ...
history. The book's introduction gives an overall view of the country, while the chronology plots the path from the earliest settlers to the present. The dictionary includes hundreds of cross-referenced entries on important persons, places, events, and institutions as well as significant political, economic, social, and cultural aspects. Everything from the examination of the relations between the Pakeha and the Maori to the country's environmental policy is covered in this reference. Further research is enabled by the extensive bibliography. Praise for the Previous Edition: "...an invaluable research aid, a thank-you note seems more appropriate than a review...it is all most clear and precise..." -The Round Table "...an erudite yet very practical guide...historically sound, sober in judgment, and interesting to read..." -Reference Reviews
