This book builds on Claudia Orange's award-winning Treaty of Waitangi, using a wonderful range of photographs, maps and paintings to bring the Treaty's history to life. Depictions of key players and moments sit alongside a clear and informative text that helps explain the history of this key document. Two peoples meeting, agreements made and broken, claims and protests: all are a part of the story of the Treaty from before its signing to the present day. Never before have the Treaty's varied stories been made so accessible the general reader.
