Books by Hoar, Peter

The World's Din

ISBN: 9781988531199

The arrival of radical new audio technology from overseas in the late 19th century led to a 'sonic revolution' that changed New Zealanders lives forever, says author Peter Hoar.
In his new book The World's Din, he describes the arrival of the first 'talking machines', and their growing place in New Zealanders' lives, through the years of early radio to the dawn of television.
