Bullshit, Backlash and Bleeding Hearts : A Confused Person's Guide to the Great Race Row
At last, the book that digs behind the slogans, myths, mud-slinging and misconceptions on ALL sides of the current Treaty and race debate to explain exactly where we are, how we got here and where we're heading. Where did this Pakeha backlash come from? Just how 'privileged' are Maori? Can anyone define the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi? Is Don Brash playing with fire or is he just saying what needed to be said? Using a wide range of sources, from the politicians driving the debate to acknowledged experts and the best cultural commentators, author David Slack leads us through the political minefields, the talkback battle zones and the dinner party arguments to answer these and other vital questions about the state we're in.
