CHOICE Review

Hill's analytical study of the relations between the New Zealand state and the Maori people during the first half of the 20th century focuses on the Maori struggle to achieve rangatiratanga (autonomy). Endorsed by the Treaty of Waitangi in the 19th century, rangatiratanga appeared to guarantee the Maori a type of sovereignty over their lands and resources in New Zealand/Aotearoa. The hegemonic impulses of the colonial and postcolonial state, on the other hand, worked consistently to defuse Maori aspirations for independence, favoring instead the assimilation of Maori to a Western cultural model. The clash between these competing aspirations, as well as the maneuvering of both Maori and pakeha leaders, involved compromises as well as confrontations. Yet, according to Hill (Victoria Univ.), "even the Maori milieu deemed to be most accommodationist of all, that of the Young Maori Party/Ngataism, believed Maoridom should preserve appropriate elements of its own culture and institutions at the same time as taking up the many desirable ideas, technologies and lifestyles of the pakeha." ^BSumming Up: Recommended.
