Maori: A Photographic and Social History (Revised Edition)
This is a second-hand copy of the book Maori: A Photographic and Social History (Revised Edition) by Michael King.
From the blurb:
Newly updated and revised for this edition, Maori is the most comprehensive history of the Maori people of New Zealand yet published. It combines the startling conclusions of contemporary scholarship with a range of pictures illustrating almost every aspect of Maori life since the advent of photography. Maori presents a stimulating account of how Maori life changed in response to a European presence, and of why Maori culture survived in the face of enormous odds against it. It is a startling overview of where New Zealand has come from and where it is heading.
Michael King is New Zealand's leading writer on Maori history. He has a doctorate from the University of Waikato and has taught or held fellowships at five universities. He is the author of several Maori biographies (one of which won the New Zealand Book award for Non-Fiction), has contributed a Maori section to The Oxford History of New Zealand, researched and presented a prize-winning series of television documentaries on Maori life, and edited books by Maori authors.
