            The Book of Trespass: Crossing the Lines that Divide Us

            Barbed wire across fields, padlocked gates, 'trespassers will be prosecuted' signs: Britain is a land of fences. Who owns these fences, and what does it mean if we cross them? In The Book of Trespass, Nick Hayes takes us on a journey of trespass across Britain. He jumps over wall...s at baronial estates, wanders into fenced off ancient woodland, trespasses onto the Queen's land at Windsor and pushes through barbed wire to access MoD property. He examines the social history of property, from the Norman Conquest to the enclosure acts and the privatisation of land. Along the way he asks crucial questions: what has the mass fencing off of private land done to Britain and its inhabitants? Why is the transgression of boundaries thought so severe here, when roaming is a legal right in so many countries? And who even drew these lines in the first place? A fusion of psychogeography, history, politics and philosophy, fuelled by a gently anarchic spirit, The Book of Trespass is a powerful rumination on how fences represent the division in our society, but also cause it.

            This book describes the iwi of Ngti Kahu through the traditions and histories of each of the sixteen hap, told by kuia and kaumtua and kept alive for future generations. These include histories of poverty, deprivation and marginalisation at the hands of the Crown, and loss of lan...ds of the iwi. The book examines the range of techniques used by the Crown to justify its actions and the way these laid the groundwork for continuing injustices. The remedies needed to redress these injustices and achieve reconciliation of Ngti Kahu and the Crown are set out. These include constitutional change to achieve the restoration of political, social and economic well-being to Ngti Kahu, Crown relinquishment of all Ngti Kahu lands to their rightful owners and payment of sufficient compensation to ensure no further Treaty of Waitangi claims. This history of Ngti Kahu details the range of Crown actions against Ngti Kahu to the current day, the effects of these actions on the people of Ngti Kahu and the concerted and continuing efforts by Ngti Kahu for remedies and reconciliation with the Crown.

            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.

            The 1877 legal case Wi Parata v Bishop of Wellington centred on the ownership and use of the Whitireia Block, near Porirua. In refusing to inquire into ownership of the block, the Supreme Court judges dismissed the relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi: So far indeed as that instru...ment purported to cede the sovereignty - a matter with which we are not directly concerned - it must be regarded as a simple nullity. Over the past 25 years, this simple nullity view of the Treaty has been castigated and the infamous case seen as symbolic of the neglect of Maori rights. Now, David V Williams takes a fresh look at the case, affording new insights into both Maori-Pakeha relations in the nineteenth century and the legal position of the Treaty. Behind the apparent dismissal of the Treaty as a simple nullity lay deep arguments about the place of Maori and Pakeha in Aotearoa New Zealand, which are as relevant now as they were then.
