Abstract:

"The Depression of the 1930s was a defining period in New Zealand history. It had its own vocabulary -- swaggers and sugarbags, relief work and sustenance, the Queen Street riots and special constables -- that was all too familiar to those who lived through that tumultuous decade ... While the lives of those most affected by the Depression have been admirably documented in oral histories in various forms, the political and economic context, and the manoeuvrings and responses to the unprecedented conditions have not, until now, been given the extensive analysis they deserve. [This book] ... unpicks the Depression year by year. It begins by introducing the prosperous world of New Zealand in the late 1920s before focusing on the sudden onset of the Depression in 1930--31, the catastrophic months that followed and, finally, on the attempt to find a way back to that pre-Depression prosperity. Informed by exhaustive research, relevant statistics and fascinating personal accounts, and made accessible and meaningful by insightful analysis"--Publisher's description.
