Richards, Trevor

Notes
300 pages, 32 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations, portraits Summary: The Springbok tour of 1981 is writ large in New Zealand's history ... brought the country closer to civil war than anyone believed was possible. But the issue was not new: there had been protest ever since the Springboks first toured in 1921 ... traces the development of the protests following the 1921 Springbok v. Maori game, through the growth of a mass movement of determined citizens, to the New Zealand court case which stopped the 1985 All Black tour of South Africa ... As leader of HART for much of its twenty-three years, Trevor Richards tells this story from a unique position.
