Acknowledge No Frontier: The Creation and Demise of New Zealand’s Provinces, 1853–76
27 July 2016 @ 6.30 pm - 8.00 pm
André Brett’s new book examines a formative but largely forgotten era of New Zealand’s history. It is an account of the evolution of individual provinces and the central government’s use of public works, especially railways, to gain support for their abolition and a story of how vociferous parochialism and self-interest undermined the provinces and brought New Zealanders together.
To be launched by Stuart Macintyre.
