Abstract:

""Crusade" is the first full length study of the Social Credit movement in New Zealand. It is a fascinating story of how a once derided group of men and women whose ideas on politics and money were dismissed as "flat earth" have created an organisation which in 1981 threatens to upset the traditional political order in New Zealand. The Social Credit story begins with two extraordinary men -- Major Douglas, the originator of the Social Credit theory, and the Reverend William Aberhart, the winner of the landslide victory in Alberta in 1935 and the first Social Crediter to hold political power. "Crusade" documents the careers of these two men and analyses their impact on the Social Credit movement of today. The history of the organisation in New Zealand is traced from its ebullient campaigning for the Labour Party in the 1930s, through to attempts at a coalition with National in the 1940s, to the cautious foundation of the Social Credit League, to the election campaigns, to the bitter splits and infighting, from the low point of 1972 when the organisation seemed doomed to political extinction to the high of 1981 when the impossible dream of political power seems a reality."--Back cover.
