Explores the fascinating relationship between transport and NZ society. Illustrated with B&W drawings and images.
Five forms of transport have dominated in different eras of New Zealand history, interwoven with social and economic developments of the time. Travelling though these ages of the waka, sail, steam, motor and the jet, this book surveys the different forms of transport, the impact of each on society, and the factors which shaped its development...
Links shows how transport has affected life in New Zealand, telling a rich and powerful story complemented by many fascinating anecdotes and historical photographs. Readers with an interest in the past eras of transport will be delighted by this record of progress; a pioneering study, its discussion of the impact of society on transport and vice versa will make it essential reading for historians.
Links is supported by the Ministry of Transport, and has been prepared under the supervision of the Historical Branch of Internal Affairs.
