Made in New Zealand celebrates Kiwidom by examining our characteristics through the eyes of some of our best and most recognised achievers- essentially a coffee table book saluting New Zealand and New Zealanders. This is done by the sharing of insights and perspectives on how New Zealand has influenced and shaped them and how they believe the attitudes, beliefs and make-up of Kiwis has changed as New Zealand has evolved as a country. An essential ingredient in creating a product of value is strong 'in situ' portrait photography and innovative design. This book achieves on both counts. Award-winning New Zealand photographer Ross Land and award-winning journalist Chris Mirams have managed to get total buy-in from all subjects approached. From Alison Holst to David Kirk; from Professor Margaret Brimble to Jon Toogood and John Minto to Sir Graham Henry, Made in New Zealand sweeps the full gamut of New Zealand society.

Summary: "This inspiring book examines the attitudes and attributes of New Zealanders through the eyes and experiences of some of our highest and most prominent achievers. Each of the subjects provides insights on the values they were raised with, the role they have played in shaping their life and how New Zealand has changed and evolved during their lifetime. Ross Land's gorgeous portrait photography and Chris Miram's compelling text combine to create an important book which gets to the very heart of New Zealand and New Zealanders." --Inside jacket.
