Title:The Bookmen's Dominion: Cultural Life in New Zealand 1920-1950
Auckland University Press, 2006. A portrait of New Zealand's intellectual life between the two world wars, this literary history pieces together the networks formed by journalists, librarians, independent scholars, and academics, examines how they worked with or against one another, and discusses the links forged with their Australian counterparts. It also explores the role of libraries, newspapers, and magazines as cultural institutions at a time when the universities and the state played a minor part in colonial cultural life.
