Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Analyzing for the first time the relationship between the tangata whenua and the country's earliest non-European immigrant group, this study investigates how two different marginalized groups in New Zealand society--the Maori and the Chinese--have interacted over the last 150 years. Various aspects are explored, such as how Maori newspapers have portrayed Chinese publications and vice versa, the changing demography of Chinese and Maori populations, Maori-Chinese marriages, and the ancient migration of both groups. The ethnically diverse contributors--from Maori to Chinese to European scholars--tackle numerous questions from many angles as well, such as Do the Maori resent Chinese immigrants? Do Chinese New Zealanders understand the role of the tangata whenua? and Have Maori and Chinese formed alliances based on common values and history? The result is an engaging portrait of the past and present relationships between two important peoples. Since race relations in New Zealand have usually been examined in terms of Maori and Pakeha, this unique exploration of Maori-Chinese relations portrays a much richer and more complex social fabric.
