Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This collection of essays by leading New Zealand and Commonwealth historians, including Tom Pakenham and Carman Miller, discusses different aspects of New Zealand's involvement in the South African war. The essays arose from a 1999 conference to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the departure of the first contingent of New Zealand troops to fight in the war. They explore opposition to the war, women, and the place of Maori in the war while placing the New Zealand effort in a wider imperial framework.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 215-216) and index.
