A SHORT HISTORY OF THE NEW ZEALAND WARS
Following the ongoing success of A Short History of New Zealand, Great Tales of New Zealand History and Great Tales of Rural New Zealand – all reprinted and still going strong – Gordon McLauchlan has turned his masterful storytelling skills to one of the most important periods in this country’s history.
Published to coincide with New Zealand’s first national day commemorating the wars on 28 October, this insightful and accessible book will be of interest to New Zealanders wanting to find out more about the New Zealand wars and the Maori struggle aginst 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 over a century, have had a profound effect on our development as a nation.
