First published in 1974, A Show of Justice remains the essential and definitive text on official policies towards the Maori people in the nineteenth century. Professor Ward shows how an understanding of the past explains why Maori today, formally equal under the law, continue having to demand rights assured under the Treaty of Waitangi and why major issues have yet to be recognised and addressed. A Show of Justice also has a glossary of Maori terms, a full index and notes.
