Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Maori Auckland is synonymous with Ngati Whatua, or so it seems. However, there is a much longer and far more contentious history of the area which challenges this assumption, and raises the possibility of several other tribes staking a claim for dominion over Auckland.This book offers a concise survey of Auckland's history in the centuries before European involvement. From the first Polynesian arrivals, through to the growth of the isthmus, and the devastating invasion that altered its entire political make-up in the mid-I 700s, The Struggle for Tamaki Makaurau uncovers a truly fascinating history of the region, and will cause many Aucklanders to see their city, and the current Treaty claims, in an entirely new light.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -148) and index.
