New Zealand Society at War by Steven Loveridge

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The social history of First World War New Zealand is a multifaceted subject, the result of a conflict which, more or less, involved entire societies. James Belich once argued that in New Zealand the ‘grand themes of world history are often played out more rapidly, more separately, and therefore more discernibly than elsewhere’, and this is certainly applicable to the Great War. This book conveys some of the complexities of a small land in a world war, by examining individual facets of New Zealand society.
