New Zealand Working People 1890-1990

This book sets the record straight about New Zealand's history by examining our society from the perspectives of those thousands of workers whose lives were only rarely recorded because no-one thought them important enough to be recorded. All of us have listened to our parents and grandparents tell their stories and know that the history of working people is rich and vital and essential to our knowledge about ourselves.
