The Shadow of the Land - A Study of British Policy and Racial Conflict in New Zealand

Author(s): Ian Wards

Early New Zealand | Secondhand

A sombre look at New Zealand's race relations, and the history of British territorial acquisition in Aotearoa.  The name is provided by Kaitaia chief Nopera Panakareao, who in may 1840 believed only the shadow of the land of his people had gone to Queen Victoria.  Less than a year later he believed it was only the shadow the Maori would have left.


A large rip on the upper front of the dust jacket, which also shows marking and rubber.  Some bumbping to the boards.  Interior is tidy.
