Waitangi and Indigenous Rights
This is a revised edition of Professor Brookfields landmark study of issues surrounding the Treaty of Waitangi first published in 1999. Here he adds an extensive epilogue addressing three recent debates relevant to his central topic: the Fiji revolutions, successful and attempted, Maori customary title to the foreshore and seabed and the Foreshore and Seabed Act of 2004, and the Rekohu Report (2001) of the Waitangi Tribunal on the conflicting claims of Moriori and Ngati Mutunga on the Chatham Islands. He deals with these complex and controversial matters with his usual careful, thorough and principled approach dealing with the broad constitutional issues and responding to comments made by other scholars. The new edition of Waitangi and Indigenous Rights will be an essential tool for all those working in the area and for anyone interested in this vital contemporary debate.
