Anthony Haas is the Foundation Director of the Centre for Citizenship Education (CCE), associate member of the New Zealand Parliamentary Press Gallery, foreign correspondent and a prolific author.
His new book Being Palangi: My Pacific Journey tells of the ongoing development of New Zealand as a Pacific nation. In this book, Haas explores little known stories of his paternal grandfather who was the Democratic Party leader in the German Parliament in the 1920s, through to his father’s escape to New Zealand in the 1930s. The memoir is about multiculturalism. It includes stories about how people can work together to make the world a better place.
