New Territory

Bridget Williams Books

New Territory is an analysis of the turbulent years of the late 1980s and early 1990s by one of New Zealand's leading political commentators. Colin James looks at the way Labour’s structural reforms shattered the ‘prosperity consensus’ that had gone before, setting the changes of the 1980s in a broader political and economic context. In a thoughtful and even-handed study taking into account different views of these immensely controversial reforms, James brings a global perspective to an often fragmented and incoherent debate.
