A New History of Canterbury
by Stevan Eldred-Grigg

Hardback, first edition 1982, 252pages, good condition, light crease/fading in jacket

The social history of a New Zealand province from its colonial beginnings to the late twentieth century. Canterbury has been a lively and changeable society. At first defined by many as ?a very aristocratic province,? it evolved into a focus for radicalism, socialism and religious millenarianism while at the same time maintaining the traditions of a conservative landed gentry. This book looks at life and death, work and play, home and wilderness, law and leisure ? growth, change, and constant themes through several generations of history.

?It is an absorbing work, and is obviously the fruit of remarkably thorough research ? There is such a gusto about the whole thing that the reader is caught up and swept along.? - John Kennedy

?flashes of phraseology that catch the eye, succinct and expressive passages.? - Gordon McLauchlan
