Saving the children in New Zealand : a study of social attitudes towards larrikinism in the later nineteenth century: A research exercise presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Arts with Honours in History at Massey University.
A concern for the wayward nature of the younger generation
would seem to have been a fairly constant theme in the history of
society. This research exercise explores the attitudes of articulate
New Zealanders towards the problem as it appeared to them in
the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. [From Preface]
