The story of a Treaty
The story of a Treaty – By Claudia Orange
In constant use for over twenty years, a new generation will benefit from this long-awaited new edition of New Zealand’s most accessible introduction to the Treaty of Waitangi.
The Treaty of Waitangi is a central document in New Zealand history. In this lively account, Claudia Orange tells the story of the Treaty from its signing in 1840 through the debates and struggles of the nineteenth century to the gathering political momentum of the last three decades.
The second edition brings the story up to the present. New illustrations enrich the history, giving life to the events as they unfold. This splendid new edition in full colour ensures that this popular book will remain an authoritative introduction to Treaty history for future generations.
Claudia Orange’s authoritative TREATY OF WAITANGI (1987) changed the way many New Zealanders saw this significant part of their history.
