It has been two years since the massive
Christchurch earthquakes completely
reshaped the city. Much has been written
about various aspects of the Christchurch
recovery, but this book provides the missing
analysis of where the city stands now, and
where it looks to be heading.
Following up from 2011's Earthquake,
A City Recovers is an extensive and up-to-date
examination of the current state of the city.
The Press' team provides poignant imagery
and expert insights; this is a fascinating rev
of Christchurch's recent tragic past and its
challenging yet promising future.
A City Recovers is availabl
from May 3 from all
leading book retailers.
