This article is to review some economic geographical books published in New Zealand which have not been familiar in Japan. They range from a comprehensive introduction to New Zealand edited by the leading geographer to those dealing with specific sectors of her economy. Most of the books, composed of essays by specialists, reflect the significant changes of New Zealand economy in the 1970 s and 1980 s in changing international circumstances. They include original researches based on regional surveys as well as studies of practical purposes such as positive proposals on and criticism of governmental policies. Geography is a practical science in New Zealand, just as its agriculture has developed by the close connection between economic and technological studies and their application and practice on the farms.
