After the Treaty of Waitangi was signed on 6 Feb 1840, many wars between Maori and colonial forces broke out over (mostly) land issues. This new book full of maps, colour photographs, easy-read graphs and information tells the stories of these wars, the areas where they were fought and the conflicts that sparked them.
Key figures in these wars are explored, along with more modern land disputes, memorials, commemorations and reconciliations.
Clear, easy to understand text for students, followed by a helpful timeline from 13th century to now, a glossary, and a comprehensive list of the author’s sources.
This book is a must in schools and homes, to help us all understand our own history.
