The Politics and Government of New Zealand
G. A. Wood and Chris Rudd both taught first year New Zealand politics at Otago, and recognized the need for an up-to-date text book on New Zealand politics. According to Rudd, the publication process was relatively seamless, with Wendy Harrex and her team taking control of the text and the design, once the final manuscript was submitted, and the chaos resulting from the move from Union Street to Cumberland abated. There was one small glitch. The spine reads 'edited by', where in fact both men wrote the book. With this particular distinction, Rudd maintains that this first edition will be a collectible when the second appears!
