Beyond the Imperial Frontier: The Contest for Colonial New Zealand
Beyond the Imperial Frontier is an exploration of the different ways Maori and Pakeha 'fronted' one another - the zones of contact and encounter - across the nineteenth century. Beginning with a pre-1840 era marked by significant cooperation, Vincent O'Malley details the emergence of a more competitive and conflicted post-Treaty world. As a collected work, these essays also chart the development of a leading New Zealand historian.
Vincent O'Malley is a director of HistoryWorks, a research group providing quality research and writing on Maori history and Treaty issues. Vincent has been awarded the JD Stout Research Fellowship for 2014. He is currently working on a new book on the Waikato War, 1863-4, to be published by BWB in late-2015. His book The Meeting Place: Maori and Pakeha Encounters, 1642-1840 (AUP, 2012) was shortlisted for the General Non-Fiction prize at the New Zealand Book Awards 2013.
