After the War

The RSA in New Zealand



The story of an iconic institution - the RSA - from its beginnings during the First World War through to the twenty-first century.

The story of an iconic institution - the RSA - from its beginnings during the First World War through to the twenty-first century.

A highly illustrated look at a threatened icon of New Zealand culture – the RSA. The book will appeal to general readers interested in this readily identifiable but little-understood organisation. It tells of the trials and tribulations of returning soldiers wanting an organisation to represent them, and to make sure they received a fair deal as they settled back into domestic life after serving their country. The story is told not only in text but also through use of photographs and ephemera.

About the author

Stephen Clarke

Stephen Clarke lives in Paris, where he divides his time between writing and not writing.

His Merde novels have been bestsellers all over the world, including France. His non-fiction books include Talk to the Snail, an insider's guide to understanding the French; How the French Won Waterloo (or Think They Did), an amused look at France's continuing obsession with Napoleon; Dirty Bertie: An English King Made in France, a biography of Edward VII; and 1000 Years of Annoying the French, which was a number one bestseller in Britain.

Research for The French Revolution and What Went Wrong took him deep into French archives in search of the actual words, thoughts and deeds of the revolutionaries and royalists of 1789. He has now re-emerged to ask modern Parisians why they have forgotten some of the true democratic heroes of the period, and opted to idolize certain maniacs.
