The origins of the Māori wars by Keith Sinclair( Book )

38 editions published between 1957 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keith Sinclair's The Origins of the Maori Wars is a fascinating account of the Waitara purchase and the cause of war in Taranaki in 1860. The seeds of conflict were sown in the earliest days of European settlement in New Zealand, when colonists arrived to take up land for which they had paid before it had been procured. The King party, one of the earliest national movements among Maori, reacted against this imperial expansion. The story of the developing crisis features good intentions, self-interest, obstinacy and miscalculations? elements involved in the origins of many wars. Written over t

Tasman relations : New Zealand and Australia, 1788-1988( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... At the invitation of the Australia-New Zealand Foundation and as a recognition of two hundred years of European settlement in Australia, the noted historian, Sir Keith Sinclair, has brought together a team of authorities from both sides of the Tasman. Experts in their fields, they present a lucid, perceptive and astonishingly coherent picture of 200 years of contact. Chapters range from a fascinating account of Maori perceptions of Australian settlement in the 1840s to a detailed study of recent trade relations between two countries, including the recent CER (Closer Economic Relations) free trade agreement. Among subjects covered are population, literary relations, defence, and religion. A hard hitting chapter compares the lives of woment in the two colonies, among the first countries in the world to give the vote to women. Intergovernmental relations ... are highlighted at different historical periods and on different matters of common concern.. Two personal impressions -- of a New Zealander in Australia and of an Australian in New Zealand -- show vividly and often amusingly the daily contrasts and contradictons experienced by those who cross the Tasman to live. Rounding off the volume is a penetrating overview by Geoffrey Blainey of relations between the two countries, identifying in some striking and unusual ways the resemblances and differences between them."--Inside front cover

"Among the banks operating in New Zealand the Bank of New South Wales has always played a distinctive part. It began its operations in this country in 1861, at the start of the great gold digging days, and in every phase of New Zealand's economic development since then it has been intimately concerned. To write this centennial story it opened its records and gave a free hand to two able historians."--Inside front cover

The British politician and lawyer Sir John Eldon Gorst arrived in New Zealand in 1860, shortly after the outbreak of the Taranaki Wars, with idealistic intentions of working with Bishop Selwyn and the Maori. In 1864 he published this book analysing the social and economic situation in New Zealand, the rapid deterioration of relations between Maori and Europeans and Maori demands for self-government. He describes, often as an eyewitness, the complex political wrangling that took place, and sets out his own views about the past and future relations between the two ethnic groups.--From back cover
