Summary
"While other British settler societies - Australia, Canada, the US and South Africa - have states or provinces, New Zealand is a unitary state. Yet New Zealanders today hold firm provincial identities, dating from the time when the young colony was divided into provinces: 1853 to 1876. Why were the provinces created? How did settlers shape and change their institutions? And why, just over 20 years later, did New Zealand abolish its provincial governments? [This] is a lively and insightful investigation into a crucial and formative part of New Zealandf's history. It examines the flaws within the system and how these allowed the central government to use public works - especially railways - to gain popular support for abolition of the provinces. The provincial period has an enduring legacy. This is the surprising and counterintuitive story of how vociferous parochialism and self-interest brought New Zealanders together" -- Publisher's description
