This compilation of over 300 women’s biographical portraits was acclaimed as a groundbreaking perspective on New Zealand history when it was published in 1991, and remains the definitive reference work in its field.

It includes women whose lives are well documented, such as Katherine Mansfield, but also Topeora, who signed the Treaty of Waitangi, and Annemarie Anon, a patient in the 1890s at Otago’s Seacliff Asylum. Wide-ranging, comprehensive and lively, The Book of New Zealand Women is an invaluable resource and a delight to read.
