When_two_cultures_meet__the_New_Zealand_Experience.jpgWhen two cultures meet; The New Zealand Experience

John Robinson

An analysis of the coming of Europeans to New Zealand and the Maori realisation that their own dysfunctional culture had to change. The true story is here built on the observations of those who were present at the time, and the often absurd proclamations of revisionist historians are corrected. An excellent history book for those who are seeking the truth about the nation's early history.

This is the story of two very different peoples and the steady building of the one nation promised by Hobson at the first signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. The Maori were Polynesians who had been moving across the vast Pacific for millenia, separated from the great mass of humanity, and had remained a tribal, Stone Age, people. The British had shared in the considerable advances of civilisation, through the Iron Age to the Industrial Revolution and the growth of cities in nation states.
