Why did New Zealand churches, sporting clubs, trade unions, iwi and other social elements respond to the First World War as they did? What might the experiences of politicians, newspaper editors, businessmen, professors and children add to our understanding of the war? What, ultimately, was the relationship between the war and the New Zealand society that entered and endured it?
Collecting the expertise of nineteen specialists, New Zealand Society at War 1914-1918 addresses the context and wider significance of how parts of the social fabric responded to the Great War. Together their investigations offer a pioneering survey of New Zealand society towards and through 1914-1918.
