Return to Rugby Land

ISBN: 9789551723446

Author: David Scott    Publisher: David Scott

After a forty year voluntary exile, an expatriate kiwi returns to New Zealand to travel around while reporting on the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Return To Rugby Land is a challenging and provocative social commentary encompassing more than just the games or scenery. Scott explores sport's place in society, along with the myths, psyche and anxieties of a small nation. While questioning comfortable shibboleths, including about Maori and women, his personal account offers heartfelt insights and a broad understanding of New Zealand inextricably linked to the omnipresent game of rugby.
