Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Williams' history - the first book to provide the "bigger picture' of the activities of the Native Land Court - details the dramatically adverse impact it had on the landholdings of Maori hapu.Te Kooti tango whenua offers a picture of the court in action, with legislative practices that perhaps resulted in the most serious breaches of the Treaty of Waitangi to date, and "points the way to a future less contaminated by hurts arising from injustices of the past.' "

"Discusses the role of the Native Land Court in implementing the Crown policies to make Maori land, with legal title, available for colonial settlement" --Foreword.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 347-383) and index.
