Rowing on the Waitemata to grab the latest news from incoming ships. Rushing out a special afternoon edition to the paper boys cries of Extra! Extra! Crime and shipping news, the arrival of Governor Grey and the fall of Ruapekapeka Pa. From the mid-nineteenth-century rivalry between the New Zealander and the Southern Cross to the establishment of the New Zealand Herald and the Auckland Star as the two papers that would dominate Auckland newspaper life through the twentieth century, the story of Aucklands newspapers is an engrossing battle of wits that reveals much about the history of the people and the press in New Zealand. In Extra! Extra! David Hastings, an accomplished journalist and historian, has undertaken substantial research on numerous newspapers in one period in one town in order both to tell that story and to tackle larger questions. Was it politics or commerce, readers whims or something else that drove the rise and fall of newspaper empires? Did newspapers lead or follow public opinion on social and political issues? Were they shaped by their owners or their editors? And was the newspaper world in 1900 driven by different forces than that of 1845? The newspaper wars of nineteenth-century Auckland were life or death struggles with the odds heavily in favour of death. Extra! Extra! tells the story of the newspapers, the editors and reporters and owners who made them, and the readers who decided what was news and which papers would live or die.


David Hastings' career in journalism spans more than four decades. He began working as journalist as a copy boy on the Melbourne Sun in 1970 and ended in 2013 as editor of the Weekend Herald. In between times he worked for Australian Associated Press, the Australasian Express in London, the ABC in Melbourne as sub-editor, producer and then television news editor. At the New Zealand Herald between 1987 and 2013 he was a sub-editor, foreign editor, news editor, deputy editor and, finally, editor of the Weekend Herald. He left the Herald in January 2013 to pursue his interest in writing history. Hastings has an MA(Hons) in History from The University of Auckland. His first book, Over the Mountains of the Sea: Life on the Migrant Ships, 1870-1885 (AUP 2006), was based on the research he did for his MA thesis. Mary Dobie features prominently in that book through her paintings and sketches of life on a migrant ship as well as the diary she kept with her sister.
