David Green


Kia ora, I’m a founder member of PHANZA, and have been a member of the executive committee and editor of Phanzine.

As Senior Editor/Historian in Manatū Taonga, the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, I edit books and write and edit content for Te Ara (the online Encyclopedia of New Zealand) and the NZ History website.

I’ve edited about 60 books and indexed about 20.

My publications include Battlefields of the New Zealand Wars: A Visitor’s Guide, and co-authored histories of the Audit Office and the Royal New Zealand Artillery. I’ve written about 15 entries for the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography.

My research interests are sport and society, 19th-century race relations (especially the New Zealand Wars), and the New Zealand state.

Ngā mihi,
David Green (Kāi Tahu)
