Justice and Identity

Bridget Williams Books

The way that Antipodean countries tackle issues of sovereignty, governance and democracy are challenged in a series of thought-provoking essays by lawyers, Māori leaders, sociologists and political commentators. Questioning traditional notions of justice, the authors debate the role of the Treaty of Waitangi, discuss Tainui’s attempt to reclaim confiscated land, and consider the implications of Australia’s Mabo indigenous rights debate. The essays offer a challenging and incisive perspective on post-colonial issues where justice and identity intersect.
