This is an auction for ON THIS DAY IN NEW ZEALAND by Ron Palenski.

"On This Day in New Zealand provides a comprehensive yet ready-reference view of all aspects of New Zealand history. It lists chronologically, by month and day, significant events that affected New Zealand and New Zealanders, but this is no mere shopping list of dates. Each entry is like a potted biography of how New Zealand developed as a nation and of the events that made the news at the time. It begins with pre-European times (when definite dates were known) and traverses the exploration years, the colonial period, the changing times of the 1890s and 1900s, both world wars and up to the present. It is a self-contained history of New Zealand based on dates. It covers the great affairs of state but also includes events that touched the lives of all New Zealanders - a political and a social history rolled into one. The book also includes a unique index based on dates rather than pages so the reader can quickly find items of interest. On This Day in New Zealand will appeal to a wide audience from the serious researcher in need of a quick date to the casual inquirer or to the pub quizzer."

About the Author: Ron Palenski has written more than 30 books in a long and distinguished career. A number of his books - particularly his rugby and cricket books - have been massive bestsellers. More recently Palenski has specialised in accessible New Zealand history. This shift towards general New Zealand history has coincided with Palenski's studies at Otago University. He is currently working towards his doctorate in New Zealand history.
