For more than half a century, Keith Sorrenson – one of New Zealand’s leading historians and himself of mixed Māori and Pākehā descent – has dived deeper than anyone into the story of two peoples in New Zealand. In this new book, Sorrenson brings together his major writing from the last 56 years into a powerful whole – covering topics from the origins of Māori (and Pākehā ideas about those origins), through land purchases and the King Movement of the 19th Century, to 20th Century politics and the workings of the Waitangi Tribunal. Throughout his career, Sorrenson has been concerned with the international context of New Zealand history while also attempting to understand and explain Māori conceptions and Pākehā ideas from the inside. And he has been determined to tell the real story of Māori land losses and their political responses as, in the face of Pākehā colonisation, they became a minority in their own country. Ko te Whenua te Utu/ Land is the Price is a powerful history of Māori and Pākehā in New Zealand.
