This best-seller,” the triumph of meticulous research, much reading and judicious evaluation, is the contemporary spearhead of contemporary reference for New Zealand’s history.New Zealand was the last country in the world to be discovered and colonized by mankind.He was also the first to introduce full and complete democracy.Between these events, and in the century that followed frankness, the movements and conflicts of human history were played out more intensively and more quickly in New Zealand than anywhere else on Earth.The Penguin of New Zealand History tells this story in all its colours and dramaThe story of what emerges is an inclusive approach to men and women, Maori and Pakeha.It shows that the British motivations for wanting to colonize New Zealand were essentially human; and that the Maori, far from being passive victims of a “fatal impact”, heroically resisted with colonization and selectively survived the acceptance and adaptation of what Western technology and culture had to offer.Also available in eBook PLATINUM PREMIER FIRST Minister of NEW ZEALAND best-seller READERS’ CHOICE AWARD 2004 MONTANA, NEW ZEALAND, the NIELSEN BOOKDATA PAPER PRIZE NEW ZEALAND LIBRARY CHOICE CHOICE, PRIZE, I HAVE THE BEST OF THE BEST
