The People and The Land is currently out of print.

This book is a visual and narrative history of two communities, Maori and Pakeha, during a hundred years of settlement in New Zealand.

It reveals how the two cultures saw their history through very different eyes: for Pakeha, it was a story of establishing an ‘English island’ in the Pacific; for Maori, a tale of loss and exclusion. But by setting out these conflicting understandings of the past, the book also seeks to bridge cultural differences through the sharing of knowledge.

Written by three leading historians and lavishly illustrated, it is a stunning presentation of New Zealand’s history.
