About the Author

He completed his PhD at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1989. In 1994 Penn State Press published his book Closing the Door to Destitution: The shaping of the Social Security Acts of the United States and New Zealand, which was nominated for five awards. Dr Richards is now a senior lecturer in History at the University of Waikato.


"Richards has given us an indispensable study of 'the lawmaker' who was arguably New Zealand's best ever deputy prime minister." --Neil Stockley, New Zealand Listener
"Clearly written with detailed footnotes, Palmer will be an important text for those interested in New Zealand politics." --Neil Miller, Waikato Times
