This is a detailed study of both the past and present applications of 19th-century New Zealand's Treaty of Waitangi, which attempted to establish a more peaceful relationship between European settlers and the country's indigenous population. Written in two different languages, Maori and English, the Treaty makes significantly different commitments in each version, and distributes authority in starkly incompatible ways. This book not only provide accounts of the adherence to or violation of the Treaty's principles in the 19th century, but also questions the current distribution of power in New Zealand's social and political structures. The contributors range from philosophers and lawyers to historians, and they all have strikingly different methods of documenting and debating the role of the Treaty in New Zealand's cultural landscape.
