Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Serious and playful, this work of creative conjecture by leading historians and political scientists reexamines key events and decisions in New Zealand's history--sensitive to possibilities that were plausible at the time--and speculates about circumstances that with only a modest degree of adjustment could easily have taken an entirely different turn.

"This book is an exercise in disciplined creativity, as leading historians and political scientists re-examine key events and decisions in New Zealand's history"--Back cover.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 265-284).
