The Treaty of Waitangi by Claudia Orange

The first comprehensive study of the treaty, deals with its place in New Zealand history from its making to the present day. The story covers the several treaty signing and the differences between Maori and English texts; the debate over interpretation of land rights; and the actions of settler governments determined to circumvent treaty guarantees; the wars of sovereignty in the 1860s and the longstanding Maori struggle to secure a degree of autonomy and control over resources.
