Edited by the renowned West Coast Historian, Philip Ross May, these six essays by West Coat contributors examine political life and activity on the Coast from the days of the Gold Rush to the end of WWI. Westland was an active area for politics and for protest with a high proportion of Irish and socialists in the early settlers and the foundation of strong NZ trade unionism laid there among the mining community.
