How have two very different marginalised groups in New Zealand society - Maori and Chinese - interacted over the last 150 years? This important book, the result of a major grant from the Marsden Fund, looks at the relationship between the tangata whenua and the country's earliest and largest non-European immigrant group for the first time.show more
