About the Book

Muskets, potatoes and other introductions fundamentally altered the balance of power in 19th-century New Zealand, leading to tribal conflicts over almost 40 years that claimed tens of thousands of lives (killing, wounding or displacing up to half the Māori population). This highly illustrated work grippingly explains these epic conflicts.

About the Author

Ron Crosby burst onto the New Zealand book scene in 1999 with his ground-breaking The Musket Wars, and has followed that with a range of titles. Formerly a barrister specialising in resource management and iwi claims, Ron was appointed to the Waitangi Tribunal in 2011.
