The Weight of the World Wars, 1897-1949 FRONTIER OF DREAMS

Author(s): John Parker

New Zealand titles - children

By the time Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 1897, Pakeha New Zealanders thought their country had come a long way since becoming a British colony at Waitangi in 1840. ÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂGodÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs Own CountryÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂàwas what Premier ÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂKing DickÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂàSeddon often called New Zealand. Over the next half century this young nation would be shaped and defined by the call to fight overseas, a period of dreams and disappointments between World Wars and the introduction of the Labour governmentÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs welfare state. New ZealandÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs history is presented through a collage of text, photographs and images. (See also Frontier of Dreams slipcase) SHORTLISTED NEW ZEALAND POST BOOK AWARDS 2006
