Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1989, a great deal has changed although some of the themes and ideas relevant at the time endure. Among the new issues to emerge is the inclusion of the Treaty in a large range of legislation, greater recognition by the Crown of itsduty to recognise the Treaty, and the transformation of the claims process. This new edition of Waitangi retains all the strengths of the original edition whilst addressing new issues that have emerged during the 1990s and early twenty first century.
