Book Description Penguin, Auckland, 2003. Card Covers. Book Condition: VG+. No Jacket. Maps (illustrator). 1st. 20cm By13cm. In the late 1990s Professor Kerry Howe was asked to write a book responding to a controversy then current about the origins of the Maori people and the possibility that there had been earlier settlers established in NZ than the Maori. Interestingly, this debate has more recently undergone something of a revival, with various theories regarding Maori and pre-Maori societies discussed. In his introduction the author said that during Cook's voyages it was concluded that Polynesians originally came from the region now called South East Asia and that. "In essence this is also what the modern academic view tells us." Kerry Howe conducts his investigation over eight chapters which traverse "enlightment sciences" from the 1760s to the 1860s, "mainstream ideas" 1860s to the 1940s, "current ideas" ranging over global and near and remote Oceania as origin points including artifact, biological and linguistic trails as well as voyaging under deliberate or drift methods. navigation, maritime technology and exploration, chapter six examines the practicalities of American, Spanish or other connections as well as from 'sunken continents", chapter seven explores the "new learning or the old learning" while the final chapter on Maori origins says." the problem for those who wish to insist on human presence in New Zealand 2000 years ago is that there is no direct and/or colloborating evidence. On the contrary, there is widespead evidence from a range of independent findings and techniques for human arrival in the later thirteenth centuary." Undoubtedly, this controversey will not disappear, as the recent resurgance of interest shows, and in that context alone Kerry Howe's indepth assessment of all aspects of the arguments, provides absorbing material for followers of both sides of the debate. First edition from Penguin of 2003, 235 pages including references, bibliography and index, eight b/w maps or charts. VG+ decorative card covers have a colour art illustration to front, text block is excellent, no inscriptions. Bookseller Inventory # 004678

Book Description Penguin Books, Auckland Etc, 2003. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" Tall. pp 235. Prev. owner's sticker corner of title page, otherwise near new. 'From space, from Egypt, from the Americas/ From other ancient civilisations? These are but some of today's more fanciful claims about the first settlers of New Zealand and the islands of the Pacific. But none of them correctly answer the question: where did the Polynesians come from? This book is a thoughtful and devastating critique of such "new" learning, and a careful and accessible survey of modern archaeological, anthropological, genetic and linguistic findings about the origins of New zealanders and Pacific islanders. Why have there been such extreme and diverse opinions on the subject? Professor Kerry Howe examines the 200-year-old history of Western ideas about Polynesian origins in the context of ever-changing fads and intellectual fashions.'. Bookseller Inventory # 1008258
