    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 23.99

His purpose in coming to New Zealand and remaining here was to make enough money to live the life of a leisured... more...

  • From Tamaki-Makau-Rau to Aucklandby Russell Stone

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 29.15

    The isthmus between two harbours on which modern Auckland now stands and which Maori called Tamaki-makau-rau was a virtual population void when Hobson bought it in 1840 from the resident owners as the site of his new capital.
