He points out that since Maori and Pakeha to a significant extent form two distinct social groups, and since these groups are in frequent intensive contact with one another, what looks like a “Maori problem” is likely to be ‘essentially a strain or stress between the two groups, or resulting tension within groups and within individuals’. This is to say that a study of the Maori must also take into account the Pakeha, and the relationships existing between Maori and Pakeha.
