A Short History of the New Zealand Wars by Gordon McLauchlan
Gordon McLauchlan turns his masterful storytelling skills to one of the most important periods in this country's history. Succinct and accessible, the book tells the story of the struggle of Maori against immigrant settlers and the British army over land ownership and rangatiratanga - the right to some political control over their own lives and culture. The conflict and its consequences, mostly ignored for a century, have had a profound effect on our development as a nation. Published to coincide with New Zealand's first national day commemorating the New Zealand land wars on 28 October 2017. This 2017 David Bateman Ltd Paperback is in Mint condition.
