The definitive NEW ZEALAND'S TOP 100 HISTORY-MAKERS, which profiles the people who have shaped New Zealand, is staggering in its scope. New Zealand's icons, including Edmund Hillary, Kate Sheppard, Jean Batten, Apirana Ngata and Ernest Rutherford are all there. But so, too, are a huge variety of other influential figures - bungy-jumping inventor A J Hackett, John Clarke of Fred Dagg fame, Maori leader Whina Cooper, activist John Minto, film-maker Peter Jackson, musician Dave Dobbyn. The early years of New Zealand's history are well covered, through the stories of such people as Hone Heke, Samuel Marsden, Te Rauparaha and George Grey. But more recent achievers like Neil and Tim Finn, Fred Hollows, Marie Clay and Russell Crowe are included as well. NEW ZEALAND'S TOP 100 HISTORY-MAKERS is brilliantly illustrated and outstandingly-researched. It will be fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in the people who have made New Zealand the country it is, as well as an essential learning resource.

A spin-off from the television programme of the same name.
