Title: Age of Enterprise : Discovering the New Zealand Entrepreneur 1880-1910
Description: Auckland, New Zealand, Auckland University Press. 2007, First Edition. (ISBN: 9781869403812) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 1880-1910. It shows how entrepreneurship and innovation transformed the New Zealand economy in the late 19th century and sets our experience in context with other similar developments in settler colonies such as Australia and Latin America. In particular, The Age of Enterprise draws on case studies and historical evidence to reveal that the small, organic, rapidly expanding firm was the potent force in New Zealand's growth - the local, smalltime entrepreneur is the hero of this story. By focusing on the shape of our economic history Ian Hunter here fills a major gap in our knowledge of the colonial period which has so far derived largely from the work of social and political historians. CONDITION B format pb. 280 pages with photo illus and graphs. Bright and crisp as new with faintest handling signs. #New Zealand History#. As New/N/A.
