Oral Culture, Literacy & Print in Early New Zealand: the Treaty of Waitangi
D.F. McKenzie


"The concept of an ideal text as a cultural and political imperative is not imposed on history but derives from it and from an understanding of the social dynamics of textual criticism."
The Treaty of Waitangi can be used as a test case for measuring the impact of literacy and the influence of print in New Zealand in the 1830s.


Oral Culture, Literacy & Print in Early New Zealand offers the reader a fuller understanding of the conditions of orality and literacy at the time The Treaty was signed and may help to define more accurately the ways in which The Treaty might now be reconstructed, interpreted and applied.
