(p.1) Introduction New Zealand’s empire
New Zealand'S Empire

Manchester University Press

This introduction describes the way in which the volume itself overturns the traditional assumptions around the concept of ‘empire’, by placing New Zealand at the centre of a ‘local world of imperialism’ that reaches out across the Pacific to include Sāmoa, Fiji, the Cook Islands, Tokelau, the Antarctic, and even Australia. In this way, the chapters span social, cultural, political and economic history to raise questions and test the concept of ‘New Zealand’s Empire’. Each of the four sections is introduced, along with a brief summary of each of the chapters.

Keywords:   Imperialism, Māori, Historiography, Britain, Australia
