Summary "Why did rugby become much more important than soccer in New Zealand? What role have Māori played in our sporting life? Do we really 'punch above our weight' in international sport? Does sport still define our national identity? Viewing New Zealand sport as activity and as imagination, Sport and the New Zealanders is a major history of a central strand of New Zealand life"--Publisher information.
