Abstract:

A Sort of Conscience is a remarkably engaging study of the Wakefield family and the early settlement of British colonial societies. It draws on a rich store of sources to paint a portrait of a complex family whose influence crossed the globe. At once notorious and visionary, Edward Gibbon Wakefield and his brothers played a key but controversial role in the early British settlement of New Zealand, Australia and Canada. Once famed as New Zealand's 'Founding Fathers', they have since become the arch-villains of all post-colonial scenarios of the past. Deciding that neither myth made good histori.
