This book " ... analyses Maori protest movements from 1891 to 1909, a crucial era in Maori history ... Defeated militarily in the 1860s, by 1890 the Maoris had accepted the permanence of that defeat and thereafter became more articulate, more united, and more effective in their use of political techniques. Unable to rely completely on their greatly outnumbered representatives in the national parliament, they developed organisations of their own which combined European political techniques with traditional leadership and social values. Williams asks "What were the Maoris' goals and how successful were they in achieving them?" Exploring these questions he shows how a conquered people acquired a voice in determining the disposition of their land, and in deciding how and to what extent they would be assimilated into the society that enveloped them." -- Back cover
