Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

By pictures and words, NOW WE ARE FOUR: KIWIS BY THE MILLION traces how New Zealand has developed from a country of one million in 1908, to two million in 1952, to three million in 1973 and to four million in 2003. It is a popular social history - providing comparisons between then and now, making extensive use of lists and tables showing how New Zealand was and how it is today. The book is an illustrative history, reflecting changing fashions and mechanical and technological development: from the days of horse-drawn drays to the latest in automotive engineering; from the early days of wireless telegraphy to digital satellite television. NOW WE ARE FOUR marks a statistical milestone that taps into the nostalgia market with an evocative look at the way we were and cross over into the popular history market, putting the development of New Zealand and New Zealanders in a unique context.
