Description of this Book

As the last sizeable landmass to be settled by people the history of New Zealand is a story of migration; from the first Polynesian explorers to this year's new settlers. This fascinating book comes out of the online Encyclopedia of New Zealand project and describes the incredible variety of the peoples who settled in New Zealand from the 19th century onwards. The introductory chapters explore the themes of migration - how and why people travelled around the world to settle in a country often far removed geographically and culturally from their homelands. Following these chapters, each ethnic group is described covering how and why they came to New Zealand and what issues they faced then and now.
