Description

The Native Land Court 1862-1887: A Historical Study, Cases and Commentary is the first ever authoritative published selection of the Native Land Court's principal decisions.

The book contains a full introduction explaining the history of the Court and contains over 100 principal cases each of which include full text and introductory commentary explaining the case and its significance.

It includes cases from all over the country, ranging from the Houhora peninsula in the far North to Ruapuke Island in Fouveaux Strait, and includes such key decisions as the Oakura decision of the Compensation Court, the notorious Heretaunga block in Hawke’s Bay, the Chatham Islands cases, and cases relating to the “gift of the peaks” of what is now Tongariro National Park.

It will be of interest to iwi, legal practitioners, and historians and an indispensable reference tool for future work relating to the Native Land Court.

NewsThe Native Land Court 1862-1887: A Historical Study, Cases and Commentary is shortlisted for the 2013 JF Northey Memorial Book Award.
