City of Enterprise: Perspectives on Auckland Business History

Edited by Ian Hunter & Diana Morrow

‘. . . the essays in City of Enterprise are of uniformly high quality, and they hang together very well. A broad chronological sweep is interwoven with paired chapters and enduring themes. . . . City of Enterprise deserves wide readership.’ – Gordon Boyce, Australian Historical Studies

'From its earliest days, the city of Auckland thrived on business; it quickly became, and still remains, the commercial and financial capital of the country.

City of Enterprise sets Auckland’s business history in the wider context of national economic growth, and includes cutting-edge studies on aspects of that history. Written by leading scholars, chapters cover the stock and station agent industry, Maori enterprise, maritime history, leading companies, the timber trade, newspapers and accounting. This handsome book is part of a larger project to reinvigorate the research, teaching and dissemination of business history. It vividly demonstrates the insights, as well as the lively interest this type of history, too long neglected, can provide.'
