ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with professor Peter D. Gluckman. Gluckman has just enjoyed the peachiest of years in 2004. Virtually everything he touched turned to academic gold. Scholars are not often recognised for their work in New Zealand. This is particularly true in cases where they (a) are still alive; (b) remain in the country; and, (c) work outside the humanities and social sciences. Gluckman loses on all counts. Against the cultural odds, however, this celebrated director of Auckland's Liggins Institute managed to become one of a handful of academic exceptions in 2005--an achievement recognised in the New Zealand Herald's recent decision to name him the paper's man of the year.
