This book covers Crown Maori land policy and practice in the period 1865¿1929, and those who both bought and sold land in New Zealand. 4.2 million acres of Maori land was bought by the New Zealand government between 1890 and 1920 for around £3.5 million but many more acres were to be confiscated. Essential reading for anyone studying this topic or wishing to know more.
