This volume combines the Māori texts from Selected Readings in Maori (3rd ed 1990) and the English translations of those texts, from Readings from Maori Literature (1980). The texts and their English translations are published in parallel on facing pages, for ease of comparison. The Māori texts are drawn from various sources, including Elsdon Best's Tuhoe, Sir Apirana Ngata and Pei Te Hurinui Jones's Nga Moteatea, Te Ao Hou, the Maori newspaper Te Wananga, and the Journal of the Polynesian Society, as well as from previously unpublished manuscripts in the Grey Collection.
