Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Delving into an important constitutional issue, this thorough examination details the up-to-date legal arguments involved in the indigenous-rights debate around the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi. Uniquely combining conceptual academic theory with grounded and realistic suggestions for improving the ways the New Zealand government deals with the Maori, this comprehensive account outlines the significance behind an unresolved controversy that affects New Zealand's identity and culture, as well as their constitution, law, and economy.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 452-464) and index.
