Aussie / Kiwi / Related areas People - History book?


Recommended Posts

History, politics and religion are forbidden subjects in NZ.

 

 

Really?  Why? 

 

I was really looking for something that explained NZ history and historical culture to me as well - my partner is tired of constantly having to explain things :) I guess something geared towards immigrants maybe?

Colonial guilt and political correctness. I guess also our history is very recent and sore points are still sore. I did see what looked like a good kid's book at the library which i need to find again since we are up to the 19th century. I will send you the details when i do. There are some really nice picture books set in WWI/II and i have always liked The Runaway Settlers for it't desciption of life. I will ask some of the ex refugees at work whether they have something but all I have seen in the past was more practical stuff.
