              This is a brief account for the general reader of the deadliest and most gruesome chapter in New Zealand's history - the Musket Wars in which around one third of the Maori population were killed. The wars were a continuation of the inter-tribal fighting that had been a feature of... native life ever since the tribes arrived in New Zealand in their canoes but the introduction of muskets increased the killing to an industrial scale.

              The Government's occupation of Parihaka on 5 th November, 1881, was an inevitable consequence of Te Whiti creating aquasi-republic which refused to recognise the sovereignty of the Crown, or the laws of the land. That the occupation was achieved peacefully was as much a tribute t...o the restraint of Te Whiti and Tohu, as to the decision of the Government to arrive with overwhelming force so as to deter any ideas of resistance. This book explains the complicated land situation in Taranaki which led to war and confiscation, and narrates the rise of Te Whiti and Parihaka - the tensions between him and the settlers, and the Government's failed efforts to resolve the situation. It also covers the later years of the prophets Te Whiti and Tohu and the dispute which marred their lives, culminating in the decline of Te Whiti's influence as his prophecies failed to materialise. Ultimately this influence was replaced by the Young Maori Party of Apirana Ngata who worked for assimilation with European ways.

              New Zealand is fortunate in having a high quality water resource. It has fuelled an agricultural revolution where production has taken precedence over management of resources. In a world where clean water is becoming a scarce resource, we must protect ours for a nation's future w...ellbeing.

              This is probably the most important book published in recent times as it shows how in 27 years the Treaty of Waitangi has been reinterpreted, the "partnership" myth created, tribal corporations set up, public assets transferred to those corporations which are now on the brink of ...securing a special place in a new, treaty based, written constitution. The treaty was Britain's reluctant response to pleas by Maori chiefs to rescue the tribes from a culture of cannibalism, slavery and inter-tribal warfare that had wiped out about a third of their race by 1840. The treaty was a simple and straightforward agreement by which the chiefs agreed to pass the sovereignty of New Zealand to Queen Victoria in return for protection and rights as British subjects as well as being guaranteed possession of whatever lands they were currently holding by long use, conquest or otherwise. By the treaty every Maori, including the slaves, gained a prize unheard of for native people at that time: full and equal citizenship of the world's largest and most benign empire. In recent years a cadre of self-interested politicians, bureaucrats, judges, lawyers, academics, journalists and tribal leaders have been feeding the public a fake history ("wicked colonialists and noble chiefs"), including a false version of the treaty, so as to feed the ever growing grievance industry and line the pockets of corporate iwi, which has amassed $36.9 billion of assets while paying less tax than others or, more often, no tax at all. Claims to culture, radio waves, petroleum and the like, let alone "partnership" with the Crown and even sovereignty itself, are modern creations not mentioned in the treaty. This book, written by six concerned and well-qualified New Zealanders, exposes the extent of the Treaty fraud and warns of the National-Maori Party coalition's plan to hijack our constitution so as to turn all non-Maoris into second class citizens in the land that our forebears built by their sw

              The Corruption of New Zealand Democracy: A Treaty Industry Overview (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Maori society was in disarray in the early nineteenth century. While slavery in the deep south of the USA was terrible, in New Zealand it was brutal, with unexpected death and cannibalism a constant threat. There was mass killing. In the years following the signing of the Treaty ...of Waitangi, British forces imposed peace, bringing an end to intertribal warfare, torture, slavery and cannibalism. The Maori population steadily recovered from the ravages of the terrible past. That was a great achievement, to be celebrated. The way ahead could then be based on common identity and equality. The outcome for Maori was not catastrophe but demographic recovery. It is shown here that the decrease of population after 1840 was entirely a consequence of the initial abnormal population distribution, with a lack of young and a shortage of women, as well as continuing female infanticide. However, the rewriting of history in support of separatist claims is demanded of scholars. The repetition of causes for grievance then increases racial tensions while turning attention away from the worsening economic and social conditions of so many ordinary Maori. This book explores that background and outlines some of the consequences of the insistence on grievance, with a people becoming ever more divided. Racial privileges based on the accidents of history are now part of New Zealand law and are dividing a nation that was built on the worthy aspiration of one law for all. The continuing division of the land and writing of new law in back room deals, from which the public are excluded (as described here), is corrupting our once proud democracy.
