History | Biography

Public Lives is the first book to describe, compare and contrast the lives and careers of New Zealand's premiers and prime ministers. Thirty-five men and two women, their political perceptions as varied as their personalities, backgrounds, education, occupations, enthusiasms and views about New Zealand and the wider world, are profiled in bright and pithy chapters lavishly illustrated with cartoons and caricatures. The introduction pulls the historical strands together, assessing the most striking successes and failures in a job that has changed hugely in scope and complexity over the last 150 years.
