520    Making a New Land presents an interdisciplinary 
       perspective on one of the most rapid and extensive 
       transformations in human history: that which followed 
       Maori and then European colonization of New Zealand's 
       temperate islands. This is a new edition of Environmental 
       Histories of New Zealand, first published in 2002, 
       brimming with new content and fresh insights into the 
       causes and nature of this transformation, and the new 
       landscapes and places that it produced. Unusually among 
       environmental histories, this book provides a 
       comprehensive analysis of change, focusing on 
       international as well as local contexts. Its 19 chapters 
       are organized in five broadly chronological parts: 
       Encounters, Colonising, Wild Places, Modernising, and 
       Contemporary Perspectives. These are framed by an 
       editorial introduction and a reflective epilogue. The book
       is well illustrated with photographs, maps, cartoons and 
       other graphics.
