A civilised community : a history of social security in New Zealand, 1898-1998 by Margaret McClure( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who should receive social security? Whose needs are greatest? Is social security a mark of citizenship or a cause for shame? Should cash benefits provide for basic sustenance or promote a sense of belonging? Does a benefit for sole parents break down family structures? How can the costs of social security be controlled? These questions are not new and have been debated throughout the twentieth century. This pioneering history traces the development of social security policy in New Zealand from the passage of the Old Age Pensions Act in 1898 through to the recent benefits cuts, the 1997 superan

The mother of all departments : the history of the Department of Internal Affairs by Michael Bassett( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Joseph Heenan, the most illustrious of all its secretaries, called the Department of Internal Affairs 'the mother of all departments'. A rather more earthy Australian friend of his called it the 'guts department'. In a sense, both were right. Written with liveliness and colour, illustrated with photographs, anecdotes and rich detail, The Mother of All Departments brings to life the history of the first and most important agency of government in nineteenth-century New Zealand. It traces the evolution of the Department of Internal Affairs from its genesis as the Colonial Secretary's Off

French Akaroa : an attempt to colonise southern New Zealand by Peter Tremewan( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive historical account in English about the lives of French immigrants in New Zealand in existence, this work tells how, in 1840, New Zealand was nearly divided into two countries-a French South Island and a British North Island. That year, the French government made a play for influence in the Pacific and sent French settlers to annex Southern New Zealand. When the French colonists arrived, however, the British had already gotten to the island, and the newcomers lowered their sights and began to settle in Akaroa Harbor on the Banks Peninsula. Chronicling the social and political events and their lasting ramifications, the discussion shows how communities still nurture their French heritage that attracts many tourists to the town of Akaroa to this day. The second edition of a first book published in 1990, this edition has been extensively updated and revised
