Waitangi, the Treaty House and its environs, each year becomes the focus for New Zealanders' reflection about their nation's past and its future. Its Bay of Islands location has long been the subject of academic enquiry. Now, Peter Shaw has brought together the fruits of this research in a highly readable way. Ile has plotted the history of this area from earliest times: the people and events recorded in Maori oral and written tradition; the first contacts between Maori and European. the establishment of the Hirst settlements by missionaries, whalers and traders. In 1833 came James Busby, the British Resident whose simple house, pre-fabricated in Sydney, has assumed such national importance. Here on 6 February 1940 the Treaty of Waitangi was signed between Maori chiefs and representatives of the British Government. Peter Shaw vividly describes these momentous events and traces the often precarious fortunes of the Treaty House to the present day. WAITANGI is lavishly illustrated with informative maps, paintings and rarely seen historical photographs. It includes plans of the work done by various owners and architects to this building of major historic importance. Peter Hallett completes the visual record with superb colour photographs of the house and the land at Waitangi as they appear today. Please click here to ask a question
