Annie's war : a New Zealand woman and her family in England 1916-19 : the diaries of Annie Montgomerie by Annie Montgomerie( )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When her sons, Oswald and Seton, decided they wanted to serve as pilots, which meant enlisting in Britain, Annie Montgomerie decreed that the whole family would go too. So from 1916 to 1919 they lived in London, facing Zeppelin attacks, giving hospitality to young New Zealand friends who left to fight (and sometimes never came back), watching Oswald and Seton go off to war, and suffering in the influenza epidemic. Through all this Annie kept a diary, in which she recorded her deep love and concern for her family, her hatred of the war, her forthright, amusing and proudly Kiwi views on the English and myriad fascinating details about wartime London life. Annie's granddaughter, Susanna Montgomerie Norris, has transcribed and edited this extraordinary account, along with many letters and diary excerpts from her pilot father, Seton. Richly illustrated with contemporary photographs and other memorabilia, and superbly annotated by Anna Rogers, Annie's War offers a unique and compelling view of a crucial time in world history"--Back cover

A lucky landing : the story of the Irish in New Zealand by Anna Rogers( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They travelled across the world in search of a new life, a piece of land to call their own. They came, too, in their thousands, to dig for gold. Many of the young women came to work as servants in the homes of those more wealthy than themselves; the men often earned a living building bridges, tunnels and railways until they could afford a farm of their own. Some came as priests and nuns to teach and care for their fellow countrymen and women. The Irish who poured into New Zealand, particularly as assisted immigrants in the last third of the nineteenth century, have left an indelible mark on this country's history and culture -- and on its people: it is estimated that an astonishing 20 per cent of New Zealand's population can claim Irish ancestry. "A lucky landing" tells of the colourful Irish men and women who have played a part in New Zealand politics (John Ballance, Joseph Ward, Bill Massey, Michael Savage), in its literature (Thomas Bracken, Dan Davin, Eileen Duggan), in its commercial success (Thomas Russell, Robert Hannah). There are chapters on the Irish goldminers, on the battles between Orange and Green that were once fought fiercely in this country, on the Irish influence in the Catholic church, on the many Irish who became publicans or policemen, and on the discrimination suffered by the Irish immigrants in the days before being Irish was a matter for pride ..." -- Inside front cover

Here are ... poems on love and loss, longing and regret, and ageing; beautifully observed, affectionate poems about New Zealand countryside, where 'clear cold barking comes from miles away'; sly and sharply witty poems about human frailty - 'Death's an old joke, the Russian said / but comes to each of us as a surprise ; poems that look back to a distant past whose inhabitants were 'much the same as you and me' - all expressed in language that is superbly balanced and finely judged"--Cover

Women in the economy : a research report on the economic position of women in New Zealand by A. K Horsfield( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Ministry of Women's Affairs was established in May 1986 to ensure that women's lives and needs are incorporated into decision-making. Soon after the ministry began it was clear that fundamental information about women's lives had never been documented. As a result women's contribution to society has been invisible. New Zealand women have always played a major part in the economy but in recent years their role has been changing as more women enter the paid workforce. At the same time they are affirming the importance of family life through their continued work in the home, and are active in promoting the services they need, such as childcare, healthcare and education. Anne Horsfield, economist, was invited by the ministry to pull together detailed information. using existing research and literature, Anne has built up a comprehensive picture of the economic position of women in New Zealand ... This in-depth review provides an invaluable starting point for policy-making, further research and continuing debate on some of the key issues which affect women"--Back cover
