The Great Divide: the Story of New Zealand & its Treaty

Author(s): Ian Wishart

Special Order

New Zealand was catapulted kicking and screaming from the stone age to the space age within 200 years of Captain Cook setting foot there… and they’re still arguing about it! Who really got to New Zealand first? Which version of the Treaty of Waitangi is the most accurate translation? Did the Treaty ever set up a ‘partnership’ to rule the country? Why did Maori chiefs really sign it? The Great Divide, working from the original documents from 200 years ago, directly challenges the findings of books like Michael King's Penguin History of New Zealand or Claudia Orange's Treaty of Waitangi, and in doing so offers a fresh new perspective on an issue affecting every single New Zealander. The Great Divide is likely to be one of the most talked-about books this year.
