9780143019565: Being Pakeha Now: Reflections and Recollections of a White Native

A reprint of Michael King's seminal book on what it means to be a non-Maori New Zealander. First published in 1985, Being Pakeha became a kiwi classic, a strong reply both to Maori who were asserting their own identity and also to Pakeha who were mumbling that they didn't have a strong culture or identity of their own. Being Pakeha Now was updated in 1999 and is being reprinted again with a foreword by Kerry Howe, Professor of History at Massey University and author of The Quest for Origins. Because of Michael's untimely death, this book is the closest we'll have to memoir by this major New Zealand historian and biographer. In Being Pakeha Now Michael King carries the cultural debate forward. While recognising and respecting the place of Maori in New Zealand, he argues that Pakeha too belong inescapably to this country and have no other home. Part memoir, part apologia and part celebration of a country and its peoples, Being Pakeha Now is an exciting and controversial book that travels into the hinterland of the national psyche.

Product Description:

First published in 1985, Michael King's Being Pakeha became a gentle Kiwi classic, a strong reply both to Maori who were asserting their own identity and also to Pakeha who mumbled that they didn t have a strong culture and identity of their own. Being Pakeha Now is an updated edition that reflects on these issues and how they have changed and evolved over the last fifteen years. The theme of Being Pakeha is that white New Zealanders do indeed belong to a strong culture, which is called 'Pakeha' and which is different, strong and definable and worth celebrating. In this revised edition King rewrites the Introduction and updates many of the chapters. In addition, he offers two new chapters, one on his experiences with Moriori and the Chathams and the other on his involvement in the NZ literary community.
