This 2012 edition updates and expands on the critical issues: the foreshore and seabed debate, Maori access to political power and the emergence of the Maori Party; the remarkable growth of the Maori economy, self-determination, Maori language and the developments in Maori education; constitutional issues, the benefits of the Treaty settlement process. New Zealand and all New Zealanders have much to celebrate—and many challenges ahead. The book also highlights the dramatic progress in Maori society from dispossessed indigenous peoples to a significant role in New Zealand society. The message of this book illustrates how each and every New Zealander can discover a new sense of personal and national identity, grounded in an authentic Treaty relationship.

Robert has long been involved in Treaty of Waitangi workshops.   He speaks of forgiveness, healing, acknowledging the pain of history, reparation and the restoration of right relationships.  None is an easy option, but each is a necessary step towards a better New Zealand for all of us.  This is a good book.
Sir Paul Reeves
