"New Zealanders have a strong affinity with the land, with firm connections being drawn between the land and cultural identity in the economy, politics and art. As 'Tangate Whenua' (people of the land), Maori stress the significance of their relationship with the land. At the same time, the many histories of migration, settlement and environmental adaptation ensure the subject of communities and landscapes is increasingly important. The names of the land and the land itself are tied into ideas of identity in diverse communities." "The essays in this book explore these complex relationships, from conflict in colonial Bay of Plenty, to intermarriage on the Taieri Plain, from protests against hydro-electric dams, to building a hospital in the Himalayas."--BOOK JACKET.
