IAN F. GRANT’S Lasting Impressions is a magisterial history of New Zealand’s early newspapers and is the culmination of many years of research as well as a life-long fascination with this country’s print media. The Alexander Turnbull Library’s first adjunct scholar has produced more than just the definitive account of how this industry rose and developed between 1840 and 1920; he has also written an enthralling tale of the making of New Zealand.
