The Long Dispute: Maori land rights and European colonisation in southern New Zealand
Harry C. Evison(Out of print)
213 x 137 mm, numerous maps and illustrations
An account of what happened when the southernmost corner of Polynesia became the most distant outpost of European colonisation. A revised and condensed edition of the award-winning Te Waipounamu: The Greenstone Island.
"The publishers are to be congratulated on the production (and the price) of the book. A section of excellent illustrations, a fourteen-page bibliography, thirty-three clear and detailed maps and a glossary of Maori terms combine to set a standard that academic presses elsewhere might take as a benchmark." English Historical Review
"The author writes with great authority and gives a vivid picture of colonial events that led to later grievances." Otago Daily Times
"Sometimes a book comes along which has the ability to change the way people think. This is one of those books." Southland Times
