Kinds of Peace: Maori People After the Wars, 1870–85
Admirably clear and concise in its account of the aftermath of the land wars, Kinds of Peace examines the political, religious and other reactions among Māori towards the coming of peace. It considers the effect of the wars on the Māori people of Waikato, Taranaki, and Hawkes Bay, and draws heavily on Māori sources. Special emphasis is given to leaders Te Whiti and Tāwhiao. Sinclair writes a challenging and eminently readable book. It is a major contribution by New Zealand's most distinguished historian to our knowledge of nineteenth-century Māori history.
