Summary
Antipodean soldiers and writers, meat carcasses and moa, British films and Kiwi tourists: over the past 150 years, people, objects and ideas have gone back and forth between New Zealand and London, defining and redefining the relationship between this country and the imperial centre that many New Zealanders called 'Home'. In New Zealand's London, Felicity Barnes explores the relationship between a colony and its metropolis from Wakefield to the Wombles. How did New Zealanders define themselves in relation to the centre of British culture? How did they view London when they walked through King's cross or saw the city in movies? And how did they sell New Zealand to London in butchers' shops and tourist offices? By focusing on particular themes - from agricultural marketing to expatriate writers - Barnes develops a larger story about the construction of colonial and national identities
