The settlement of iwi claims under the Treaty of Waitangi has been a prominent feature of New Zealand's political landscape over the last thirty years. It is one that has drawn international attention, as other nations seek ways to redress historic grievances and build new relati...onships between indigenous peoples and the state. As the Treaty settlement process draws toward a close, it is timely to examine its achievements and controversies. Leading scholars from the fields of law, history and politics provide a detailed and comprehensive account of the settlement process. The contributors examine the history of Treaty claims and the way they have been handled by the Waitangi Tribunal and by politicians. They look too at the impact of Treaty settlement on lands and estates, forests and other taonga, fisheries and other assets.
