From the cover:
"A CENTURY OF CHANGE: NEW ZEALAND 1800-1900 looks at what is probably the most dramatic period in the history of our country - the arrival of the second great migration of people and their clash with the descendants of the first great migration as they strove to build a life for themselves and their families. The changing economic, social and political scenes throughout the century are given detailed and balanced coverage. As the story unfolds, photographs as well as the words of some of the main participants or contemporary observers give us greater insight into events. We are introduced to the varying, and often conflicting, interpretations historians have subsequently given to the events in such a way that challenges us to come to our own conclusions. Both the serious history student and the curious lay person will find A CENTURY OF CHANGE a fascinating, informative and lively account of the people and events that have helped shape present New Zealand society."
