Prosperity for All?: Economic, Social and Political Change in New Zealand Since 1935
'Prosperity for All' draws upon years of original research to provide a lively, lucid and compelling account of economic, social and political change in New Zealand since 1935. The book assembles a wealth of factual information, that is not easily accessible elsewhere, in order to ascertain whether or not this change has indeed brought prosperity for all. The text is organised thematically and chronologically making it clear, accessible and user friendly, while reading guides at the end of each chapter enable the reader to explore issues in greater depth. Prosperity for all will be illuminating not only for students and academics in economics, history, politics, sociology and public policy, but also for non-academic readers wanting to know more about the most important transformations in New Zealand's economy, society and polity.
