This is an auction for BEING PAKEHA: AN ENCOUNTER WITH NEW ZEALAND AND THE MAORI RENAISSANCE, by Michael King.

Amazon.com review:

"FIVE STARS!!! When BEING PAKEHA by Michael King was first published in 1985, it was acclaimed as being the first serious analysis of what it meant to be a non-Maori New Zealander. "The message is that being Pakeha is worth no more or less than being Maori. Maori and Pakeha are both indigenous to New Zealand. His claim that it was basically alright to be Pakeha, first aired in the mid-1980s, was then very courageous, given a political climate where Pakeha were increasingly encouraged to feel guilty about the sins of their forefathers," states Professor Howe. Part memoir, part apologia and part celebration of a country and its peoples, BEING PAKEHA is an exciting and controversial journey into the hinterland of the national psyche by New Zealand's most respected writer of history and biography."
