from back cover:


In HALFWAY ROUND THE HARBOUR the man once described as New Zealand's 'senior enfant terrible' has written a candid, witty autobiography.
Historian, scholar, poet, commentator, parliamentary candidate - Keith Sinclair has been prolific, scholarly and controversial all his professional life. He has now produced an enlightening self-portrait. The early chapters contain some of the finest writing anywhere about growing up in New Zealand. In other pages Sinclair describes his war years, the developing study of New Zealand history, mixing with the leading literary figures of the day, writing children's books, and travelling the world.
HALFWAY ROUND THE WORLD covers with insight, warmth and humour the life and times of the man who recast New Zealand history as something more than a subplot of British imperial history.
