Summary
"... This book ... compares some popular images of life in 1990 New Zealand with what the Planning Council has seen in its recent monitoring work. Some of these images are partly right, some outdated, and some plainly wrong. More difficult still than seeing where we are, is determining where we are going. Many New Zealanders, disoriented from the speed of recent change, wonder if it is possible to say anything about New Zealand that is true and will remain true for more than five minutes. "Where to now?" is an anxious question. But we hope this book shows that the future is not uncharted territory and neither is is entirely out of our hands. We begin with the Treaty of Waitangi -- the basis of our modern bicultural nation. Later chapters focus on New Zealanders as home, at work and growing old, as well as on broader issues which affect us all, such as migration and government's role in the economy. It is, of necessity, a selective view but we hope we have focused on the issues concerning New Zealanders now ... This book is for everyone, the general reader with no inside knowledge, but with a desire to discover what is happening in New Zealand ..." -- Introduction
