Since colonisation, New Zealand has been mythologised as a 'land of milk and honey'-a promised land of natural abundance and endless opportunity-but does this country live up to its mythology? In this introductory textbook for first year sociology students, 21 of this country's leading social scientists look at our politics, our people and our problems to help readers make sense of contemporary New Zealand. For sociology students and for a wider audience of New Zealanders, A Land of Milk and Honey? Making Sense of Aoetearoa New Zealand is a lively introduction to where we have come from, where we are now, and where New Zealand society might be headed.
