Description

The late Michael King was one of New Zealand's most respected and popular historians. The author of the bestselling The Penguin History of New Zealand and many other significant works, he was a writer of remarkable skill, sensitivity and importance. The Silence Beyond is a wide-ranging and often personal collection of King's writings - many in print for the first time or no longer available - including essays, talks and eulogies for friends. Introduced by his daughter, Rachael King, The Silence Beyond is a timely and fitting tribute to one of New Zealand's greatest modern thinkers.show more
