This is an auction for CHALLENGE AND RESPONSE: A STUDY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE GISBORNE EAST COAST by W H Oliver & Jane M Thomson.

'This is a provocative regional history of the East Coast area adjacent to Gisborne. Professor Oliver regards this as a work of national value, with the material in Part 1 contributing significantly to early New Zealand history. Professor Oliver examines the life of the region in a way which emphasizes both the distinctiveness as well as the life shared with the rest of New Zealand. Bush pioneering, pastoralism, race relations, economic under-diversification, difficulties of terrain and communication, unsympathetic governments, distant customers and foreign creditors. All are the common stuff of New Zealand history, but Professor Oliver shows that the East Coast imparted its own characteristic colour and shape to their local occurrence. This is the story of the challenge of the region and the response of its settlers, thoughtful and argumentative.'
