Maori: A Photographic and Social History

 
9780143010883: Maori: A Photographic and Social History

Renowned historian Michael King (1945-2004) presents a comprehensive and searching documentary of Maori culture and society, and Maori-Pakeha contact, conflict and co-operation. From the earliest daguerreotype around 1852 to the strong protest images of the 1990s, King records and analyses changes and upheaval in the commentary that is always intelligent and objective. This book leaves the reader with not only a better understanding of the past but a challenge for the future.
