Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This book examines sovereignty issues in Aotearoa. Articles One and Two of the Treaty of Waitangi are explored and there is a breakdown of attitudes to the Treaty from various positions within New Zealand society. Peter Cleave presents a linguistic analysis of the texts of the Treaty and shows the lines of power and sovereignty as they have evolved over the last 150 years. The book looks forward, also, to the ways in which the Treaty might be read in the development of New Zealand's race relations and in future interpretations of the Treaty.
