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:

James Belich's book is a tour de force. In a brilliant new analysis, he demolishes the received wisdom of the course and outcome of the New Zealand Wars... It is a vigorous and splendidly stylish contribution to our historiography. - The New Zealand Listener
