'Beautifully illustrated, it achieves exactly what a book of this type should. The reader, without even referring to the main text, can easily follow the history of the Treaty through the images and captions...For an innovative teacher, there is much on offer.'

‘Claudia Orange is an outstanding New Zealand historian. Her long-standing commitment to public history and Treaty education sets a standard to which most of us can only aspire. Books such as this will continue to influence how New Zealanders view and value the past for years to come.’
Aroha Harris, Associate Professor of History, University of Auckland
‘That it has taken so long for the moral force of the Treaty to change the course of events, as it is doing now, is a commentary not on the weakness of the Treaty itself but on the powerful ethos of colonialism. This book is commended to all who love their country.’
Ranginui Walker DCNZM, reviewing the first edition of The Treaty of Waitangi published in 1987
‘Claudia Orange has made an extraordinary contribution to the important national conversation relating to the Treaty of Waitangi and to New Zealanders’ understanding of ourselves – our history and our identity. Her work remains a cornerstone of research related to the Treaty and it is difficult to overstate the impact it has had on scholarly and public understanding.’
Carwyn Jones, Associate Professor of Law, Victoria University of Wellington
‘Claudia Orange’s scholarship on the Treaty of Waitangi has been amongst the most influential contributions to New Zealand’s developing understanding of the agreement signed in 1840. I don’t know of any other work on the Treaty which has endured in this manner and engaged so many people. Her contribution to our development as a nation is vast and invaluable.’
Janine Hayward, Professor of Politics, University of Otago
'New Zealanders owe a great deal to Claudia Orange’s long engagement with the Treaty of Waitangi. That debt should include even those who want to challenge the role of the Treaty in our society today. Claudia’s work provides a basis for an inoculation against a reactive perspective that the Treaty has no relevance.'
