Description

Teenagers is a ground-breaking history of young people in New Zealand from the nineteenth century to the 1960s. Through their diaries and letters, photographs and drawings, we meet young New Zealanders as they transition from children to adults: sealers and bushfellers, factory girls and newspaper boys, the male `mashers' of the 1880s and the female `flappers' of the 1910s and '20s, schoolgirls and rock'n'rollers, larrikins and louts. By taking us inside the lives of young New Zealanders, the book illuminates from a new angle large-scale changes in our society: the rise and fall of domestic service, the impact of compulsory education, the movement of P?keh? and then M?ori from country to city, the rise of consumer culture and popular psychology. Teenagers shows us how young people made sense of their personal and social transformations: in language and song and dress, at dances and picnics and social clubs, in talking and playing and reading. Teenagers provides an intimate and evocative insight into the lives of young people and the history of New Zealand.
