Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A powerful and humane book, Healing Our History eschews rhetoric and cuts to the true story of race relations in New Zealand.
The Treaty of Waitangi is the most important document in New Zealand's history.
Current Treaty issues and Maori/Pakeha relationships can only be understood within the wider story of New Zealand. As we understand and honour our history, we can acknowledge the need for restoration, healing and right relationships.
The public response to previous editions of this bestselling book by Robert Consedine and his daughter Joanna Consedine has been strong and overwhelmingly positive.
This 2012 edition updates and expands on the critical issues- the foreshore and seabed debate, Maori access to political power, and the emergence of the Maori Party; the remarkable growth of the Maori economy, self-determination, Maori language and the developments in Maori education; constitutional issues, and the benefits of the Treaty settlement process. New Zealand and all New Zealanders have much to celebrate-and many challenges ahead.
Drawing on Robert's unique experience as a leading Treaty educator, the powerful message of this book illustrates how each and every New Zealander across all cultures can discover a new sense of personal and national identity, grounded in an authentic Treaty relationship.
'This is one of those books New Zealand needs.'
'Based on years of Treaty work experience, this book is essential reading.'
