Unpacking the kists : the Scots in New Zealand by Bradley H Patterson( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thorough and interdisciplinary work, this is a study of New Zealand's Scots migrants and their impact on an evolving settler society. The authors establish the dimensions of Scottish migration to New Zealand, the principal source areas, the migrants' demographic characteristics, and where they settled in the new land. Drawing from extended case studies, they examine how migrants adapted to their new environment and the extent of longevity in diverse areas including the economy, religion, politics, education, and folkways. They also look at the private worlds of family, neighbourhood, community, customs of everyday life and leisure pursuits, and expressions of both high and low forms of transplanted culture
No idle rich : the wealthy in Canterbury and Otago 1840-1914 by Jim McAloon( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wealth and power in a colonial society is the subject of this book. It is a detailed study of the richest settlers in southern New Zealand, where the country's earliest fortunes were made, mostly by pastoral farmers and financiers. Who where the rich? Not born gentlemen, the author shows, but astute and innovative capitalists, generally from relatively humble origins, Drawing on innovative research using wills, business papers and biographical sources, he investigates how they made their money, the significance of family relationships and the role of women, the influence of the rich on national and local politics, and how they justified and maintained their position." --Publisher's description
Labour : the New Zealand Labour Party, 1916-2016 by Peter Franks( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Labour Party is New Zealand's oldest political party. On 7 July 2016 it celebrates a hundred years of commitment to democracy, social justice and economic development-a commitment that has often made for precarious balancing acts. First in government from 1935-1949, Labour set the terms of economic and social policy for over 40 years only to then struggle to define itself during the 1950s and 60s. After single terms in government in the late 1950s and early 1970s, Labour experienced the 1984 Lange government's radical Rogernomics policies which threatened to destroy the party even as the anti-nuclear policy was warmly applauded. Helen Clark's nine-year reconciliation of social democracy and globalisation followed, proving across the century that Labour has consistently represented a broad-based party of reform. Labour: The New Zealand Labour Party 1916-2016 shows how Labour builds on a long tradition of radical and democratic agitation, and how members and activists from all walks of life fought for their their economic and social visions. It shows how a party founded in a male-dominated trade union movement grew-sometimes with difficulty-to embrace and advocate for the aspirations of women, Maori, Pasifika peoples, and rainbow communities. An essential read for all with an interest in New Zealand's political history, this analysis of Labour's past will go on to inform the future of social democratic politics
