BOOK SYNOPSIS

Maori author and legal scholar Carwyn Jones provides a timely examination of how the resolution of land claims in New Zealand has affected Maori law as well as the challenges faced by Indigenous peoples as they attempt to exercise self-determination in a postcolonial world. Combining thoughtful analysis with Maori storytelling, Jones’s nuanced reflections on the claims process show how Western legal thought has shaped treaty negotiations. Drawing on Canadian and international examples, Jones makes the case that genuine reconciliation can occur only when we recognize the importance of Indigenous traditions in the settlement process.

AUTHOR

Carwyn Jones is a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Law at Victoria University of Wellington.
