Summary
"Michael King, half Irish, a quarter Scottish and a quarter English - was born in New Zealand. He grew up in the Pakeha New Zealand of the 1940s and 1950s, in which Britain was Home, families were Christian and nuclear, and demonstrations, inflation and racial unrest were things that occurred abroad... Unlike most New Zealands, however, he became dramatically involved in the Maori renaissance of the 1970s and 1980s. He was forced to reassess his assumptions and Maori and Pakeha culture, and to examine his conscience and that of his country on racial issues. This book if the result of that reassessment, and the story behind his Maori histories, biographies and documentaries..."--Publisher description
