This comprehensive history of trade unions in the New Zealand printing industry provides an absorbing insight into a century and a half of New Zealand history. From the early 1860s, when the first typographical unions were formed in Dunedin and Wellington, to 1996, when printers and journalists amalgamated with the Engineers Union to form the country's largest private sector trade union (the New Zealand Engineering, Printing, and Manufacturing Union), it addresses a number of fascinating stories. Issues discussed include changing technology and the question of worker control of change and the preservation of workers' pay and conditions; divisions between different groups of workers in the workplace and at the bargaining table; the place of politically conservative trade unions in New Zealand's labor history; and the growing involvement of Maori and women in unionism.

New Zealand was the last country in the world to be discovered and settled by humankind. It was also the first to introduce full democracy. Between those events, and in the century that followed the franchise, the movements and the conflicts of human history have been played out more intensively and more rapidly in New Zealand than anywhere else on Earth. The Penguin History of New Zealand, a new book for a new century, tells that story in all its colour and drama. The narrative that emerges in an inclusive one about men and women, Maori and Pakeha. It shows that British motives in colonising New Zealand were essentially humane; and that Maori, far from being passive victims of a 'fatal impact', coped heroically with colonisation and survived by selectively accepting and adapting what Western technology and culture had to offer. This book, a triumphant fruit of careful research, wide reading and judicious assessment, was an unprecedented best-seller from the time of its first publication in 2003.
