|Maori and Non-Maori: which way forward?||Rata, Dr. Elizabeth||"A 'culturalist' orthodoxy dominates the nation's discussions of Maori issues, ethnic and cultural diversity, and the role of the Treaty of Waitangi. According to supporters of culturalism, recognising the Treaty leads to justice for Maori and provides a sound foundation for New Zealand's ethnically diverse society. I argue the opposite case claiming that culturalism leads to the establishment of pre-modern, anti-democratic conditions with serious consequences for New Zealand's future."||
