About this book


This book brings together recent postgraduate research in the broad area of giftedness, talent development and gifted education conducted across New Zealand and Australia. It addresses the significant demand for research in the field undertaken outside the United States and offers valuable practical insights. 

Divided into 15 chapters, the book explores giftedness and talent in a diverse range of socioeconomic cohorts and contexts, including examinations of gender, race and ethnicity. Though primarily intended for practitioners, it will also benefit undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers and educators in New Zealand, Australia and beyond.
