Review: A History of New Zealand Women by Barbara Brookes

A History of New Zealand Women – by Barbara Brookes
Bridget Williams Books / $69.99
A magnificent achievement from author Barbara Brookes, editor Jane Parkin, and designer Neil Pardington.
This is a superb New Zealand history through the perspective of women’s lives and all they contributed to our comparatively short but intense experience in Aotearoa.
From before 1814 to 2015, this is an exhaustive biography of women and the events they shaped in a myriad of ways. The already famous become more three-dimensional, and the more discreet lives are a very exciting discovery for the reader.
Beautifully illustrated and designed, this book will never date.
