A clear and concise explanation of the Treaty of Waitangi for everyday readers.

This book covers the history of the Treaty — from the events leading up to the signing, the signing and the Maori and English versions — and it also looks at the wider issues, both then and now, including such current topics as the debate over who owns the foreshore and seabed and how present-day Maori and Pakeh view the Treaty .

In addition the book includes practical information on topics such as:
* What does an understanding of the principles of the Treaty mean?
* What are my obligations as a citizen of New Zealand?
* Examples of legislation requiring obligations.

Including case studies, examples and commentary, this book is essential reading for every New Zealander, and especially for anyone working in government or local government, anyone applying for resource management consents, and any public body or organisation, such as schools and kindergartens, required to honour the principles of the Treaty .
