In Being Pakeha, Michael King reassesses his assumptions about Maori and Pakeha culture, and examines his conscience and that of his country on racial issues.

Being Pakeha is the story behind his Maori histories, biographies and documentaries. It specifically examines the nature, the problems, and the responsibilities of Pakeha New Zealand.

The author calls it an ethnic biography one that highlights elements of personal and national identity. It is also a book that confronts issues that will ultimately have to be faced by all New Zealanders.

Generously illustrated with b&w photographs
