Dead Letters: Censorship and Subversion in New Zealand 1914-20, Otago University Press, Dunedin, 2019
Intimate and engaging, this dramatic narrative weaves together the personal and political, bringing to light the reality of wartime censorship. In an age of growing state power, new forms of surveillance and control, and fragility of the right to privacy and freedom of opinion, Dead Letters is a startling reminder that we have been here before.
