From Tamaki-Makau-Rau to Auckland

Author(s): Russell Stone (Emeritus Professor in History, University of Auckland, New Zealand)

Maori Books

The isthmus between the 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 the new capital. It was, however, reputed in former times to be the most densely populated region in Aotearoa. This book explains that paradox as it traces the history of the region from the beginnings of settlement about eight hundred years ago. It is meticulously researched and elegantly written, and will become a standard work.
