This is an auction for DECENTLY AND IN ORDER: THE CENTENNIAL HISTORY OF AUCKLAND CITY COUNCIL 1840-1971, by G W A Bush.

"No authority which has helped to supervise the growth of as restless, vital and some might say uppity a city as Auckland could itself have an uneventful story. This centennial history of the Auckland City Council, while paying due heed to its everyday functions, captures in lively fashion the essence of the Council's contribution in the shaping of modern Auckland. To borrow a trite phrase, Auckland is "expanding towards greatness" and the Council has to lay down desirable guide lines."

CONTENTS:

* The government of Auckland before 1871

* The pattern of council activity is established 1871-1918

* The modernising of the city 1919-1945

* Polis into metropolis 1945-1971

* The first century surveyed

Hardback 1971.
