Keith Newman - Trouble in the Promised Land

From Sunday Morning, 9:40 am on 29 September 2013

Keith Newman's new book, 'Beyond Betrayal', delves into New Zealand's pioneering history, and asks why promising partnerships descended into decades of distrust. After the Treaty of Waitangi was signed, he says a succession of governors resisted missionary advice, despite their local knowledge and peacemaking skills, and influenced a raft of misunderstandings that provoked violent outbreaks across the country.
