... this is one of the most important books written about Maori law and the Treaty this century. -- Morgan Godfery * Sunday Star Times *

New Treaty, New Tradition is beautifully written, and its engaging style renders complex Maori legal concepts accessible to Canadian scholars, students, and the general public. Readers will come away not only with an understanding of Maori legal traditions but also with an appreciation of the principles informing Indigenous thinking in many jurisdictions, including British Columbia.

-- Neil Vallance * BC Studies *
