Abstract:

"When a Maori academic predicted there would be ˜civil war if the Government's seabed and foreshore legislation was passed", a book idea was born. Politically, racially, economically and morally the nation has found itself divided by a variety of issues Maori property rights, the Treaty industry, the Maori Party, prostitution reform, civil unions and ˜gay marriage, foreign ownership and immigration, GE versus organics, environmental protection versus economic growth . . . Here we test the various doomsday scenarios put forward by vested interests: Will there be bloodshed on the beaches? Is the family under threat from permissiveness and the ˜gay agenda"? Is New Zealand now little more than a foreign owned and controlled lifestyle block in the South Pacific? In short, which way are we heading " up or down"? Provocative, lively, perceptive and filled with the voices of thinking New Zealanders pondering the biggest question of all: who are we?"--Real Groovy.
