This edited collection investigates New Zealand's history as an imperial power, and its evolving place within the British Empire. It revises and expands the history of empire within, to and from New Zealand by looking at the country's spheres of internal imperialism, its relationship with Australia, its Pacific empire and its outreach to Antarctica. The book critically revises our understanding of the range of ways that New Zealand has played a role as an imperial power, including the cultural histories of New Zealand inside the British Empire, engagements with imperial practices and notions of imperialism, the special significance of New Zealand in the Pacific region, and the circulation of ideas of empire both through and inside New Zealand over time. The essays in this volume span social, cultural, political and economic history, and in testing the concept of New Zealand's empire, the contributors take new directions in both historiographical and empirical research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'At the edge of empire, at "home" with the British or somewhere in the Pacific? Pickles and Coleborne take up the puzzle of New Zealand's Empire with freshness and surprise. Both the questions and answers are new, rewarding readers with an insightful and original excursion.' Charlotte Macdonald, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand 'The book rewards its readers with a series of original, varied, and sometimes intriguing essays into particular dimensions.the editors succeed in their stated aim of opening up discussion as to how New Zealand's own empire might be conceived.' Vincent O'Malley, H-Empire July 2016 'Scholars who have been following the historiography of British settler colonialism overthe past few decades can testify to the significant contributions made by historians of New Zealand to thisbody of work. New Zealand's Empire,though, takes that work in a new and intriguing direction, as it asks questionsabout multiple forms of empire in New Zealand's history.' Cecilia Morgan, University of Toronto, Australian HistoricalStudies, 48, 2017 -- .
