Award-winning book looking at what the Treaty of Waitangi means for Pakeha.
Written by businessman and public figure Patrick Snedden, this important book won Montana Best First Book of Non-fiction 2006.
What does the Treaty mean for Pakeha today and into the future? Patrick Snedden discusses a range of issues around this topic, including what it means to be a Pakeha New Zealander. He deals head-on with Pakeha unease about Maori claims, different world-views, land protests and claims, and the disquiet over the Foreshore and Seabed Bill.
Pakeha and the Treaty: why it's our Treaty too is a hope-filled book that encourages New Zealand's emerging cultural confidence and takes pride in what we have achieved as a nation. Intelligent and thoughtful, it makes a significant contribution to ongoing national debate.
