About this object

i "Today the Treaty of Waitangi has come to signify what both joins and divides the people of New Zealand. It had different meanings also for those present at the 1840 signings - over 500 Maorichiefs and representatives of the British Crown. That these distinct meanings were conveyed in two languages only added to the complexities now woven around this crucial agreement. [This book] is a comprehensive study looking at the place of the Treaty in New Zealand history. The story is told of the early negotiations that led to Treaty signings around the country.
