Description of this Book

Agents of Autonomy examines the way that Maori reorganised and responded to the Crown's determined drive to secure Maori lands. O'Malley's history discusses in detail the succession of Maori organisations, or 'Native Committees', that formed throughout the nineteenth century and came very close to regaining control of their affairs and their resources.
