Antipodean soldiers and writers, meat carcasses and moa, British films and Kiwi tourists - over the last 150 years, all of these people, things and ideas have gone back and forth from New Zealand to London to help define, and redefine, the relationship between this country and its colonial centre. In NEW ZEALAND'S LONDON, which draws on an award-winning PhD thesis, Felicity Barnes explores "a colony and its metropolis", from Edward Gibbon Wakefield to East Enders. By focusing on particular themes - from agricultural marketing to expatriate writers - Barnes develops a larger story about our colonial and national identity. NEW ZEALAND'S LONDON is already being hailed as a landmark work of historical writing on the development of our culture: "Barnes is a very good historian who writes well ... and the completed book will be both intellectually weighty and a good read," our reviewer wrote. "[It] will offer a broader, richer and more culturally inflected reading of the relationship between New Zealand and Britain."
