Title:Hauraki Contested 1769-1875
Bridget Williams Books, 2001, 284 pages. One of the most complete emonstrations of how control of a region's resources and of their own destinies slipped away from the Maori occupants, Paul Monin's book will be widely read by New Zealanders still seeking to understand these matters. One of the earliest regions of Maori-Pakeha interaction, Hauraki is also one of the most important because of its large Maori population, its extensive resources and its relationsihp with Auckland. Residents of Auckland and Hauraki today will find this a rich account of their land and its history at a point of transformation.
