The Treaty of Waitangi is the founding document of New Zealand, a subject of endless discussion and controversy, and is at the centre of many of this nation’s major events, including the annual Waitangi Day celebrations and protests. Yet many New Zealanders lack the basic information on the details about the Treaty.
Ross Calman’s book provides a brief, balanced introduction to the treaty’s contents and signing, and how it has played a key role in the shaping of New Zealand/Aotearoa.
