Many Maori had entered the market economy. Most had converted to Christianity.

Many could read and write. Some sold their land to the government. These trends pleased the government, which envisaged a New Zealand dominated by Europeans, with the benefits of European civilization being extended to Maori, elevating them socially and economically. Ultimately the two races would become he iwi kotahi one people. The government used its own newspaper, Te Karere Maori, to disseminate this message to the Maori. Other newspapers were published by government agents, evangelical Pakeha (non-Maori), the Wesleyan Church, and the rival Maori government, the Kingitanga.

But while the newspapers were used for propaganda, they provided a forum, with many Maori debating the issues of the day. As a result, this book is able to illuminate the whole colonial discourse between Maori and Pakeha as it appeared in the Maori-language newspapers.
