Waitangi Revisited: Perspectives on the Treaty of Waitangi

Front Cover
Michael Belgrave, Merata Kawharu, David Vernon Williams
Oxford University Press, 2005 - Maori (New Zealand people) - 402 pages
The Treaty is as controversial today as it was in 1989 when "Waitangi: Māori and Pākehā Perspectives of the Treaty of Waitangi" was published. It remains central to debates about New Zealand society and its future. Among new issues to emerge in the last fifteen years are the inclusion of the Treaty in a large range of legislation, greater recognition by the Crown of its duty to recognise the Treaty, and the transformation of the claims process. The contributing authors provide a range of perspectives on the social, legal, and historical impact of the Treaty, and address the issues that have emerged over the 1990s and into the twenty-first century.
