New Zealand Education and Treatyism concerns the partisan role played in academia, in particular by revisionist university historians and lecturers in Maori Studies. We see how this affects students in teaching, journalism, law, police, nursing and elsewhere, how pupils in every kind of school are brainwashed, how the public are misled, and we also learn of the erosive role political parties continue to play in the support of treatyism in education.
Previous books by the same author:
Treaty Issues (1997) concerns the actualities of the Treaty of Waitangi as distinct from what political parties in the twentieth century have made of it.
A Race Apart (1998) looks at how treaty movements originated after 1940, grew and combined and became entrenched as a parliamentary phenomenon in modern times.
