Fitzgerald of Canterbury: the man and the myth

Fitzgerald of Canterbury: the man and the myth
NZSN is delighted to host Jenifer Roberts, author of Fitz: The Colonial Adventures of James Edward FitzGerald (Otago University Press, 2014). FitzGerald was the first superintendent of the province of Canterbury, first leader of the general government and founder of the Press newspaper of Christchurch. Fitz is described by the Midwest Book Review as 'a model of biographical scholarship' and 'informative, engaging, and entertaining from beginning to end'. Jenifer Roberts, the great great granddaughter of FitzGerald, is an English historian who has been able to utilise previously inaccessible resources to provide new information about FitzGerald and his equally talented wife.
