9780140275049: The New Zealand Wars and the Victorian Interpretation of Racial Conflict

The author re-examines the course of the 19th-century New Zealand wars. `The degree of Maori success in all four major wars is still underestimated -- even to the point where, in the case of one war, the wrong side is said to have won'.

Review:

A tour de force. In a brilliant new analysis, he demolishes the received wisdom of the course and outcome of the New Zealand Wars . . . explains how we came by the version and why it is all wrong, and substitutes his own interpretation. It is a vigorous and splendidly stylish contribution to our historiography. " Dr. Ann Parsonson, ""New Zealand Listener"
"

As complete and as brilliant a re-examination as one could imagine. " Dr. Bruce Collins, ""Times Higher Education Supplement""
