'A once in a lifetime event' - Mana Magazine
The new edition of Mana Magazine features wall-to-wall coverage of Tangata Whenua, spanning editorial comments on the launch, a feature with Atholl Anderson on early origins, and a fantastic review!
Opening comments from Aaron Smale's book review include:
It is a rare thing to be able to say that a publication is a once in a lifetime event, but this book can make such a claim. Over the years, particularly since the 1980s, there have been a slew of books about various aspects of Māori history plus major histories of New Zealand such as those by Michael King and James Belich have also included generous treatment.
Tangata Whenua is in another league. Drawing on the latest research and steered by three experts in their field this is undoubtedly the most complete history of Māori ever published. In fact, it is probably the most comprehensive history of any indigenous group published anywhere in the world.
