I spent a pleasant hour in Wellington’s Unity Books this week signing copies of my new book Waitangi: A Living Treaty. Book signings are always fun to do; you always meet new people, chat with them about why they’re interested in your book, and that kind of thing.
The concept behind the book is that the Treaty of Waitangi is a living entity, as relevant today as it was in 1840. Why? Because its practical reality is as an idea, shared by society, as that society changes through time. To show this in action, I’ve traced the history of that idea through time from the origins of the Treaty through to the present day.
If you want your copy, head to Unity. If you aren’t in Wellington or Auckland, check out your local bookstore. Or click the cover on the left to buy online.
