During its twenty-one year rule from 1891 to 1912, the liberal party of New Zealand forged many distinctive and lasting patterns of politics. Professor Hamer examines the political character of this government at all levels from Premier to elector, from political theorizing to tactical maneuvering, providing an enthralling portrait of a territory that was reputedly the "social laboratory" of the world.
